Set in a peaceful, blood-curdling village blessed with gorgeous panoramic mountaintop views and the blissful stench of rotting corpses, Wailing Heights is home to the likes of vegan werewolves, hipster vampires, gossiping ghosts and all manner of well-adjusted supernatural taxpaying homeowners. You play a washed-up musician (the human type), who is invited to the town for a gig, only for his soul to be ripped from his body by unknown assailants. You spend the game completing lyrics (based on personal items found) that allow you to body-hop and control other characters in the game, allowing access to monster-only areas in your quest to find your own body and get out of town.
Wailing Heights review
The supernatural, body-hopping musical adventure is a howling good time with a thin story and just a few rough edges.
AG wasn't in Cologne this year, but our colleagues at Adventure-Treff were on the scene for the German gaming extravanganza.
