Toybox, which is home to the co-creator of Deadly Premonition, and Arc System Works are working on an upcoming dark visual novel RPG hybrid called Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters. While the game’s story is a bit on the eerie side, it also features an interesting board game for players to enjoy when they’re taking a break from the ghost hunting.

 

Similar to the actual game, the board game called Hypernatural is a ghost hunting game that apparently takes place in America. It’s actually played by the employees of the Evening Spatium Company whenever they have free time.

 

You can access the game through the game’s menu screen, where you’ll also get to play alongside other characters of the crew, who seem to have some sort of competitive side, as they’ll be showing a different side to them once they start to play.

Hypernatural is played with four players, where one of them has the role of the ghost on an 8×8 grid map. Players take turns to move and attack.

 

Only the ghost player knows the location of the ghost, and the other players are the hunters who must find them through the use of hints and available information.

Players will have cards that indicate costs for movement, attack, and effects that will be coming in handy to find the ghost. The maps have different terrains which will affect things like movement costs and more. The game ends when the hunters or ghost are defeated.
