About This Game

Imagine – what if necromancy and magic spells were no different than writing some lines of code? In GHOSTWARE you’ll play as Molly, brought back to life and trapped inside of an arena shooter along with five other souls. But there is something inherently wrong with the world created by the mysterious Wizard.

GHOSTWARE is a mixture of hectic retro-fps action and slower pace of the adventure games. Gather your arsenal and journey through multiple dimensions, uncovering your role in the conspiracy surrounding the creation of The Arena.

  • Explore multiple worlds full of perils and wonders
    Your story will lead you through multiple dimensions, each fundamentally impacting the gameplay loop. Traverse the decaying cyber-afterlife conjured by the Wizard and explore various locales in the real world outside the simulation.

  • Interact with a colourful cast of friends, foes, and everything in between
    Numerous actors are at play, each with their own motives and interactions for you to uncover. Engage with various factions, converse with fellow ghosts.

  • Hybrid gameplay inspired by 90s FPS like Unreal and Metroidvanias
    You will find yourself immersed in a highly atmospheric journey through strange and varied environments, ranging from abandoned arenas and tropical islands to urban cityscapes, uncovering numerous secret areas hidden off the beaten path.

  • Bring mayhem with an extensive array of guns and unlockable abilities
    The Virtual and the Real World feature their own separate array of weapons for a total of more than 12 guns. Each weapon brings its own quirks and advantages to combat encounters, adding depth and strategy to your gameplay experience.

  • Browse the WebScape in search of secrets, find out what the world's been up to
    Embark on a journey through ancient web forums, delve into forsaken blogs, and download new abilities from suspicious links. Each new URL is a piece of the puzzle that will help you uncover what the happened in the world during your eternal slumber

  • Extra Gamemodes
    Dive into the Arcade and enjoy custom matches against bots, where you can tailor the ruleset, select your character, and much more for a relaxed and personalized gaming experience separate from the single-player campaign.
