Shadows of the Afterland has you cross between the worlds of the living and the dead, and allows you to possess the living to hopefully unearth your haunting past. This seems like a really fun classic styled adventure, so worth a look! It also has Native Linux support.

Set in 1960s Madrid, Shadows of the Afterland challenges you to unravel the mystery of a soul bearing the memories of Carolina, a woman who perplexingly has yet to be born. Embark on the first chapter of this unforgettable saga, stepping into the shoes of Carolina as you explore the enigmatic realms of the afterlife. Wield magic, shift between dimensions, and possess the living to solve puzzles woven into a compelling narrative.
