Emotional Exploration Adventure, Ghost on the Shore is coming to PC, Mac and Linux on February 24th.
Following the huge success of their exploration game, Marie's Room (400k downloads, Very Positive in Steam user reviews), Belgian studio "like Charlie" is releasing their next game Ghost on the Shore.
Ghost on the Shore is an exploration game about emotional ties that transcend even death. Protagonist Riley is faced with a headstrong ghost, urging her on an adventure across atmospheric shores, uncovering the island's tragic secret. Choices in dialogue shape the bond between the two, ultimately deciding Riley's fate.
Exploration and Environmental Storytelling
While you walk the beautiful landscape of the Rogue Islands, you learn their history through the items left behind. Josh remembers more from his time on the islands, and Riley is encouraged to reveal her dreams, goals and why she is running from her old life.
A unique feature that allows the player to make choices in a subtle immersive way. You don't always know how your words will affect the other. Words are powerful tools. Just like in real life, things can become fun, exciting or plain awkward.
Every dialogue option is shown only once, which makes your choices definite.
The relationship you choose to build with the ghost defines the narrative branch you get to explore. There are four branches with a different ending for each.
- Discover the branching narrative and multiple endings
- Make emotional choices and experience the consequences
- Immerse yourself into a rich story and atmospheric setting
- Gather clues and investigate what happened
