What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While scary games are pretty old already pure Ghost Hunting games are creating a new genre. Combining scientific methods and the supernatural is thrilling, and a lot of different features want to be tested. Not all will stand the test of time, and that´s why this game is in early access. I want to hear your feedback to expand the canvas of what is possible, what is enjoyable and what is not. Also there will be more items added, more levels added and more ways to make the job of a GHOSTIST your job.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be done in Q2 or Q3 of 2021, so with a little bit of luck there will be a full release this summer. My best guess: August or September.”

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

“- even more different levels
- even more items
- more bases to choose from, so one can spend their hard earned in-game cash
- more customization
- even more visual variety
- more music by small artists (suggestions?)”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“-all game mechanics are implemented and working
-all types of ghosts are already in
-various locations
-reliable saving/loading with infinite save slots
-autoloading on startup
-tutorial to show former non-ghostists the ropes
-Linux and Windows versions are always in sync
-cooperation with small artists on sound and visuals

The current Version is v0.7”

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

“Price will not change when we leave early access”

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

“The Ghost Hunter-Genre is pretty new and fresh, and defining that genre is still an ongoing task. I´d love to get your feedback and your ideas, so together we can try to come up with a good explanation of what Ghost Hunter Games might be in the future.
Then there is always bughunting. I´m a small solo developer and can only discover so many bugs. Having a bigger playerbase equals more bugs that can be fixed. So as a community you would help to even out the rough edges of the game that might still be there to make it an even smoother experience for future players. I want this game to be a casual ghost hunter that you can hop in and out of, so every suggestion steering the game into that direction is highly welcome!
I´d love to get in touch with you via Instagram (@ghostist_game) to see how YOU are playing the game or what ideas YOU have.”

About This Game

You have become a Ghostist. Now you need to prove that you are capable of finding and identifying ghosts in several different places. After arrival you have to use your tools, senses and courage to investigate the place and find the ghost.

Once you start to notice strange things around you ranging from a faint noise to an immediate attack you have to carefully check for all the clues to identify what ghost you are dealing with.
The G.I.C (Ghost Identification Chart) is helping you identify the ghost. Check all the boxes of possible symptoms and it´ll propose possible ghost types.

With all the money you earn you can buy additional equipment helping you to locate the ghost, keep the ghost away or just keep the fear at bay.

Once you have gathered enough money you may even hunt back and try to banish the ghosts from the places they are haunting. Use the Exorcismkit, collect their bones scattered across the huge and small maps and try to address the right type of ghost-you wouldn't want it to get angry!
