Ghostory - Puzzle adventure with the right *spirit*

Recommended Posts

Ghostory - an adventure with hardcore puzzles and a spiritual story. Well, not really spiritual, more so full of puns. And neat retro-styled pixelart graphics!

Story

You drink from a cursed lake. You (unexpectedly!) get cursed - you can turn into a ghost and back freely! However, you are dying. Thankfully, a helpful old lady lives nearby (with a weird love for puns). She can prepare a cure, but she needs a special mushroom. To retrieve it though, you need to travel to a nearby cave... and you get buried deep inside of it due to an earthquake. Can you make it out with the mushroom? Or will the cave be too (g)hostile?

Gameplay

Ghostory is a 2D puzzle platformer which relies mainly on solving hard logical puzzles. The player has to use both his human and ghost form to pass a complex network of platforms, doors and elevators. In ghost form, the player can fly around through walls and spaces freely. In human form, the player can interact with objects and, most importantly, move the backpack. Get the backpack to the exit and save yourself!

The game is focused around puzzles much more than mechanical skill and the gameplay is over 9 hours - full of puzzles with occasional story bits coming now and then, uncovering more secrets about the cave and your curse. Initially, it was created as a student project, but after winning the BSP Game Access '16 award, works on it continued and after 2 long years, it is finally here in a full version! We sincerely hope you will enjoy it as much as we do :)

Ghostory was released this monday on Steam - on October 23rd and is in a 15% launch discount for under 6€!
