Poltergeist: A Pixelated Horror is a horror-puzzle game that puts the shoe on the other foot, so to speak. Yep, instead of having the crap scared out of you, for once here’s a game that lets you do the haunting and spooking.
As the ghost of Henry B. Knight, you’re not happy with the folks who keep trying to move into your stately manor, and so you vouch to scare them away.
You’ll have access to eight different powers to do this, including possession, altering objects, and becoming a spectre. There are 60 levels to solve across four different time periods in which you’ll need to employ wit and intelligence to send the prospective residents screaming.
Colombian team Glitch Pixel, who are developing Poltergeist: A Pixelated Nightmare, announced that the game will be released for Windows, Mac, and Linux on Steam, Desura, and other digital stores on October 21st.
The PlayStation Vita version of the game is still in the certification process, but the team reckons it will be out a week or two after the PC version.
You can pre-order Poltergeist: A Pixelated Horror through the Humble Store widget on the game’s website (PC only) right now at the price of $7.99.
