After the success of their [[VideoGame/{{Elvira}} Elvira based adventure games]], [=HorrorSoft=] followed them up with another point-and-click horror/adventure in the original IP ''WaxWorks'', which is so similar to the ''Elvira'' games that it's often considered a spiritual sequel.

* CainAndAbel: Your family was cursed so that one of every set of twins becomes evil, and you have to go back in time using the titular waxworks building to kill the worst of them and break the curse. Your own brother is incapacitated before and throughout the game, and part of your goal is to save him, but other than this, the "evil twin" aspect isn't played up much: the evil brothers of the past include Jack the Ripper, a necromancer who looks far older than his good twin, and a human/fungus mutant who doesn't even resemble a human anymore.
