A hilarious ghost-hunting simulation.
Let's be honest - a ghost in your house can be a real pest. For centuries we have accepted hauntings as unexplained phenomena which we can do little to stop. Side affects of living in a haunted home can include sleepless nights, headaches, smog everywhere and in some cases even physical damage in the house.Enough is enough, with your help we intend to put an end to these paranormal pests. Build, manage and develop your own team of talented ghost hunters.With the income from your team's work you can equip them with some amazing gadgets, but manage your budget with care not everything is as useful as it may appear. Hunt your customers ghosts down - property damage should be kept to a minimum. Take on the ghosts, follow the map, take in the lovely sites and stunning landmarks.Be the hero of the day and save the city!

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

The theme song style reminds me of The Beach Boys.

Really weird issue with the keys! Sorry for that.

Go to www.desura.com/collection and press the GhostControl Inc. “Keys” link, then you should be able to “Get” the correct one.

It is a rather odd problem because for now they have assigned two keys to the product and the correct key can only be found through that desura.com/collection link.

Let me know if you can't resolve it. But it seems that this is how it works for now. So it does work it is only hard to find.

Will still try to change that.

Sorry, we had other things to fix and we are still investigating the cross platform behaviours that we get back from Unity regarding resolutions. We want to avoid the standard bootup "select resolution dialogue" in Unity.

It seems the initial serial key issue we experienced has been fixed by Desura. Anyone who is left with the issue from before please send me a private message. I will take care of it immediately.
