About This Game



Making friends in the afterlife is a little different.

You play as a lonely ghost with the power to possess the living. Surrounded by Oomans who cannot see you, you must use this power to steer them into comically fatal accidents and an early friendship, freeing the friendly ghosts within them. Each level is a puzzle diorama, styled after classic children's stop-motion cartoons, where you have to figure out how to make all the friends using the available hazards.

Every Ooman you ghost will add you on LiveBurial, the afterlife's hottest social media app. The posts of your newly deceased friends give you a unique look at the dysfunctional, hyper-consumerist world of the living through the lens of a social media-obsessed afterlife.

Key Features

  • Possess hapless Ooman friends-to-be and steer them into cartoonishly gruesome friend-making hazards.
  • Puzzle through 60+ levels across 4 thematically distinct areas, including 4 unique bosses that test your mastery over the power of possession.
  • Keep up with your phantom friends via the in-game Live Burial app! Each new friend you make shares their thoughts and feelings about their recent expiration via darkly humorous social media posts.
  • Learn about the world of Polter Pals through the in-game Encyclopeoplia app, a collection of questionably sourced articles on all Oomans, hazards, and bosses encountered in the game.
  • Make friends to a groovy soundtrack by the Mysterious Breakmaster Cylinder.
