GhostControl Inc. Turn Based Strategy Released

Posted by , | Views: 7,886
Manage a team of ghosthunters and free London from paranormal terror in turn-based battles. Develop your own strategy and build your business well.

We have been given a key from the developers so expect a video from Samsai in future in one of his excellent GOL Cast videos!

No one likes ghosts and the chance to eradicate them Ghost Busters style sounds awesome to me, especially when wrapped up in a cute little indie game. They have taken inspiration from XCOM and it does show (which isn't a bad thing) the game itself does look really fun with it's mix of cute graphics and a little comedy I will be surprised if this isn't a hit.

This is another game that was Kickstarted back in July of 2013 and it was over-funded, so it's great to see more Kickstarted games flow in, I expect we will see plenty more this year.

Features
  • True, challenging turn-based strategy gameplay
  • Loads of ghost hunting with various equipment
  • Team management and strategic investment decisions
  • AI driven competing teams
  • A London city map with famous landmarks
  • Tons of humour in text messages and game action
  • Original game music soundtrack

You can grab it from IndieGameStand and direct from the developer. It's actually cheaper to get it from IndieGameStand though so I would suggest getting it from there.

Finally, they are looking to get onto Steam so give them a vote if you like. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Hi,

i backed the game on kickstarter and the first alpha was working on my gentoo 64 bit linux, but since the last two versions it sopped working. Did you succed to start it?
I got into the menu and mouseover is working but no reaction to a mouseclick. What's even more sad, that i don't get any responses from the developer :/
