GHOSTS FMV is a title that follows in the footsteps of classics such as Phantasmagoria. Other titles may adopt the label of the live-action genre. But the group behind this promises a truly live experience. Will anyone survive with your help?
GHOSTS FMV: The Truest Live-Action Experience
Many horror games rely on the visuals for frights. And others may raise the levels of certain noises. But titles like the GHOSTS FMV or Phantasmagoria use tricks that haven’t seen use since the ’90s. Back then, live-action computer games become extremely popular. And labels like Sierra Games produced titles that truly lived up to the definition.
Some games have made use of live actors. However, this is simply watching people play things out. Events unfold in real-time and you have a direct hand in how things play out. Written and directed by Jed Shepard (HOST), the creatures are brought to life by Jim Hensen’s Creature Shop. All creatures were designed by Trevor Henderson, the mind behind Siren Head.
The storyline for the GHOSTS FMV has players assume the role of a TV producer. And with your show, you must reinvigorate a failing network known as FrightTV. You have a direct hand in keeping the show interesting. Many things are at your disposal to keep the live-action show engaging and fun. Take care, though, because indecision will carry harsh punishment. Do nothing and your cast and crew may be taken by The Long Lady.
To play the game, you will have to sign on at 10 pm local time. While it sounds odd, this ensures that you are participating in real-time. Otherwise, you simply receive a test screen. Passing the test will open access to a game that allows you saves.
The GHOSTS FMV game is still looking to meet its Kickstarter Goal. It’s met about 30% of its goal of $226,979. You can support the project by going to their campaign page here. The campaign still has 28 days to go, so there is plenty of time to donate. Check out the announcement trailer here.
