What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We've built Polterguys as a multiplayer sandbox that we can use to make any number of cool modes, costumes, powerups and arenas. We've made what we believe is a fun core game mode, but we know the game has much more potential, and we want your help to make that happen. Early access will help us fund ongoing development, and hopefully the community we build will want to be part of the journey and enjoy trying out new things, and sharing ideas of their own they want to see in the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We think the game will be in early access for between 6 months to 1 year. We think...”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“At the moment we expect the final release to have 12 or so arenas, with 5 polished and addictive game modes, and at least 32 'costumes'. We're hoping the community wants to be involved in shaping the final game, and so this is just a starting point. You can have your say in what we should be adding to the early access content to make this a final product.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version consists of 1 polished game mode (last PG standing), 4 completed arenas, and 12 possessable 'costumes' that can be collected, upgraded and used in different ways to fight it out. It has a 'lab' feature, which we will turn on regularly to share WIP content to play with your and get your feedback, so we can make the final game that you want to play! The game is quite well optimised, but we will do more to support lower end devices as we go.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Our current plan is to offer early access at a discount, and then have the final game be slightly more expensive to reflect the contents we'll add during early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Yes 100%!! We want to hear all your ideas, advice and feedback! Each week we will activate Professor Conical's Lab... here you can access WIP levels, costumes and game modes to try before they are polished. We hope you can help us find what's worthy of more development, and help set our roadmap for what we should be polishing to add to the early access, and in due course the full game. We have new content that is currently being made, to keep the early access fresh and interesting, but over time we expect to be guided by the community of what we should be working of, via. feedback on our lab-days. We also plan to stream a play-with-the-devs once a week, and ad-hoc development streams if you are interested in how the sausage is made!”

About This Game

We made a game where you play as mischievous ghosts and get your friends in trouble with a really, really upset monster!




There are tons of abilities and environmental dangers you can use to sabotage other players. Smash them with a cricket bat, slingshot them with a massive magnet, or use invisibility to disappear at the worst possible moment.



Polterguys is all about fluid and fun movement! Triple jump, dash, or fly with a balloon. Setup portals for quick escapes or as dastardly traps!



Use your spooky powers to possess not-so-spooky objects. Winning feels ten times better when you pull it off dressed as a box of noodles. Some costumes come with surprise abilities!



Our main game mode is Chase, where all the players are trapped with a big monster who is out to get you, and the only way to win is to be the last Polterguy standing. But that’s not all! We are constantly testing new modes, abilities, maps and ideas in our Lab mode.

Join our community and help us find the most ridiculously fun game modes and otherworldly abilities!



Sometimes you can unlock cool stuff by exploring. We’re not going to tell you more because that spoils the surprise :)
