Coffee Stain Publishing and Vaulted Sky Games unveiled the trailer for Midnight Ghost Hunt at E3’s PC Gaming Show today. Players will have a chance to explore a haunted mansion teeming with paranormal terrors–often with hilarious results. Have a look-see at the top of the article.
Midnight Ghost Hunt offers players an action-packed and often hilarious take on the prop hunt genre that sees the props fight back. In the spooky 4v4 multiplayer title, Hunters work together using an array of gadgets to hunt down the Ghosts hiding inside the haunted mansion. Ghost players possess seemingly innocuous objects and hurl themselves at Hunters. The Hunters will desperately try to destroy every Ghost before the clock strikes MIDNIGHT. If they fail, the tables turn, the Hunters become the Hunted! The lights will flicker off, and chaos and ragdoll physics ensue.
“We wanted to give context to the prop hunt mechanic and the poltergeist versus hunter setup really delivers on that whilst creating ludicrous moments where lamps and grandfather clocks lay out unsuspecting players,” said Samuel Malone, Game Director, Vaulted Sky Games. “We’re incredibly hyped to be working with an awesome indie label in Coffee Stain who have a track record of launching these viral, quirky games and we can’t imagine a better fit for us.”
