The whole game is basically one big map exploration. You play an agent of the O.D.D (Occult Defense Directorate) who has been assigned to check out some bumps in the night at an ancient estate out in the country. Before each game you choose a mission (or ask for a random one). This will determine who the final boss is and what clues you need to collect to find it and take care of it. You start in the main entrance hall and commence your exploration from there. Each mansion is randomly constructed but follows one of several architectural frameworks i.e. central hub, wings, T shaped etc. There are multiple floors, attics, basements and even things lying deeper under ground. Rooms are divided up into smaller 100 by 100 pixel areas with circular movement locations that you click on to move your character’s icon about the map. When you encounter something you must complete a challenge based on a trick taking game with Tarot cards to figure out whether you win or lose, run way or deliver a shot gun blast to the thing’s torso etc.

Also, all his games are 50% off for 2 weeks because he got rejected from Steam. (http://www.crypticcomet.com/blog/?p=752)

The great Hive Mind have already posted (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/10/25/cryptic-comet-announce-the-occult-chronicles/) about this. Although not the 50% off bit, but I'm a bit confused about that - was he asking for $50 previously?
