Update: v 1.17 live

I've pushed an update to Speed Dating for Ghosts that fixes and polishes a bunch of things. Please update to get the full ghost dating experience with these fixes:

- A conditional issue has been fixed that was preventing players from seeing full reactivity to rejecting or being rejected by all nine ghosts in a single playthrough. On Steam, this also prevented people from earning the All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Ghost achievement.

- Steph no longer lingers unnaturally long at the end of her date if you tell her "You're dead." She also now makes a noise when she gets mad.

- The "Choose Your Date" images have been updated to better reflect the appearance of the ghosts and the room themes.

- Various minor fixes have been implemented to improve the flow of the text. We also caught a few typos!

Thanks for playing our game. We are thrilled with the spirited reaction to our game.

👁 ❤ 👻,
Ben

“Here’s what I was asked: Come with me to the scene of my own murder. Come with me to be with my elderly friend while he dies/enghostens. Come with me, it’ll be a surprise (SUBTEXT: “I’m lonely and I like you”). I wanted to go on all three. That never happens.”
Sin Vega, Rock Paper Shotgun

“I always try to be a nice ghost in my choices.”
Abby Russell, Giant Bomb

“Speed Dating for Ghosts knows its limits and plays to its strengths, betting it all on its ability to tell a compelling story, and it pays off. There’s tension, suspense, heartache, misery, and a good deal of dark tongue-in-cheek humor that creates a functional world of fiction that both draws you in and keeps you invested.”
Elisabeth Conrad, That VideoGame Blog

About This Game

Speed Dating for Ghosts is a weird lil' narrative game about speed dating ghosts by Ben Gelinas (Dragon Age, Mass Effect) and Mikey Hamm (Mikey Maybe, Glig).

As a lonely specter looking for love in the afterlife, you attend a speed dating event and chat up a cemetery's worth of phantoms, wraiths, and poltergeists. At the end of the spooky mixer, choose your favorite! They'll take you out to all the best haunts: old folks' homes, creepy houses with new owners... Maybe solving a murder is your idea of a good time. Or robbing a bank. Ghosts are into all sorts of things.

Key Features

  • Nine ghosts to meet and date plus one bonus ghost if you're really committed
  • Deep, branching conversations with markedly different outcomes depending on what you choose to say
  • A full-fledged date with your favorite ghost that plays out like a text adventure after each speed dating session
  • A wide range of quirky characters including spirits of vengeance, compassion, despair, and mischief
  • Original music by Mikey Maybe, the musical alterego of game artist Mikey Hamm

Content Warning: Contains frank discussions of death and its consequences, both seriously and with intentional humor.
