Publisher Aksys Games has revealed the release date for Death Mark, a survival horror/adventure game that is now set to creep its way onto the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation Vita, and the Nintendo Switch on October 31, 2018. Yes, it’s one of the rare occasions a horror game gets to actually drop on Halloween.

While technically it has been visible on retailers for a while, Aksys sent out a press release today confirming that date and officially unveiling the game’s Limited Edition, which is available for all three platforms. The Death Mark Limited Edition comes with a 96-page hardcover art book, soundtrack CD, two temporary tattoos of the titular Death Mark, and a special case.

Here are the game’s key features, per Aksys’ press release:

Search and Survive! – To avoid an almost certain gruesome death at the “hands” of angry spirits, you’ll need to search your surroundings for clues to increase your odds of survival.
Ghost Busting – Sometimes the sword is more powerful than the pen. And when words fail it’s time to stand your ground. Remember the price of not holding your own is an untimely death.
Riddle Me This – It’s not enough to defeat the spirit that cursed you, you need to do it in the right way. If you don’t you might survive, but end up wishing you hadn’t. Be sure to parse all the clues and information you discover correctly to make your life continue to be worth living.
