You're a ghost. You're not sure why. You awaken in a world a with a whole lot of questions and not a whole lot of answers.

Make strange friends... Uncover secrets... Gather... eyedrops?

Something tells me we're gonna be just as confused when we're done here. Maybe even more so...

Ghost Story is a story driven action RPG currently being developed by me as a solo project! I'm still very much a beginner at game-making but doing this project has taught me  a lot and I'm excited to learn even more as I continue. It's still pretty early into development but I have completed this demo of the prologue chapter for people to enjoy. :^)

This demo is playable with keyboard or xinput devices, and is available on the following platforms:

  • Windows
  • macOS (COMING AT A LATER TIME CUZ IM BROKE IM SORRY ;n;)
  • Ubuntu

Caution: There are a few scenes that those who are photosensitive should be aware of: (bright flashing lights, rapidly changing colors). However, there is an in-game option to dampen these effects. The game will ask you early on if you are sensitive to such things. (I'd also recommend answering yes to this question if you are streaming the game or recording video for a lot of people to see.)

Note: Configurable controls are only available for keyboard users at this time. Gamepad configuration is planned, though.
