“What can I say? It was an honour to adapt a great piece by Adam Mickiewicz called Dziady II: The Ancestral Hunt. A teenage dream fulfilled.”

About This Game

Step into the whimsical and eerie world of The Paupers (formerly Dziady)!


In this game, you play as a spectral custodian helping souls transition to the afterlife. Explore a realm filled with lost spirits, each with their unique stories and needs.


In The Paupers, you'll become an expert in spectral listening, tuning into the odd requests of these ghosts. Your task is to meet their bizarre needs, from providing an alcoholic drink to finding a long-lost comfort food.


The Paupers is a blend of empathy, cleverness, and a bit of spookiness. Interacting with the spirits reveals layers of untold stories. It's not just about handing over items, but about understanding their past and helping them find peace.


Don't worry, though – it's not all serious! The game is perfect for Halloween, mixing spooky moments with fun and humor.
