Fan Unearths Rare Cinematic Preview for Unreleased “Tales from the Crypt” Video Game



The mega popularity of HBO’s “Tales from the Crypt, which aired from 1989 through 1996, made host The Cryptkeeper a beloved household icon, with the series spawning an animated series titled “Tales from the Cryptkeeper” and even a toy line for kids. But what you probably didn’t know is that a video game was at one point in the works.

YouTube channel CryptTube, a wonderful resource for “Tales” fans, recently dove deep into the unreleased game in a two-part video series, noting that the PC game was supposed to be released sometime around 1995/1996. They even caught up with “Tales” artist Mike Vosburg, who worked on the game, and scored never-seen concept art.

“Inscape’s Tales from the Crypt CD-rom was to be a role-playing adventure game that thrust the player into a dark realm of murder and mayhem with challenging puzzles, mazes and plot twists.”

Now, the channel has unearthed and uploaded a rare cinematic preview for the unreleased game, which they found on an Inscape games demo disc from the mid-late ’90s. The disc included playable demos of some upcoming games, along with what is essentially a cinematic intro/teaser trailer of sorts for the “Tales” video game.

For now, this is really all that exists of the aborted video game project…
