Amanda the Adventurer

Unsettling Viral Horror Hit Set to Launch on all Consoles & Mobile This Year

Posted May 08, 2024
The horror-crafting minds at DreadXP are excited to announce that the viral hit Amanda The Adventurer by developer MANGLEDmaw Games is set to launch on all console platforms, iOS, and Android later this year. The announcement comes as the teams continue their work on the previously announced sequel and celebrate Amanda’s first birthday with the community who brought the game to the impressive milestone of over 1.5 billion total views on YouTube including fan content.
Having inherited their Aunt Kate’s house, Riley Park starts exploring what the reclusive woman left behind. In the attic, Riley is surprised to find a stack of VHS tapes next to an old TV set. The tapes seem to be episodes of an early 2000’s era children’s cartoon they have never seen before. Intrigued, Riley pops the first tape into the VCR.

Not the highest budget production from the looks of it. It appears to have been made locally and features a little girl named Amanda and her loyal yet shy best friend, Wooly the Sheep. While the episode appears charming and simple on the surface, an uneasiness starts to settle in as Riley realizes that Amanda and Wooly seem to be communicating directly through the television set. A gnawing feeling in the back of their mind presses them to stop, but Riley is compelled to continue watching the tapes. It’s almost as if Amanda needs something, and Riley becomes fascinated with finding out what that something may be. What lies beneath the friendly and colorful facade of Amanda the Adventurer? Who left these tapes behind? Is the price you will pay worth the answers you seek?


  • A short yet intricate single player horror experience.
  • Animated tapes that tell an unsettling story, all under the guise of a welcoming children’s cartoon.
  • Classic, 90’s-style CGI that recalls a simpler era of animation.
  • Characters who interact directly with the viewer—a dream come true for any 90s kid...or is it a nightmare?
  • Challenging, escape room style puzzles using clues hidden within the tapes.
