GHOSTWARE is a retro-fps combining the lore-heavy plot and exploration of adventure games with the fast action of '90s shooters.
It's a unique hybrid that borrows the atmospheric gameplay and one-of-a-kind weaponry of Unreal, and blends them with metroidvania sensibilities and late 90s internet culture.


You are Molly, and you've been dead for quite a while. But this is about to change.

In one last attempt to bring back a forgotten videogame from his childhood, a mysterious Wizard resorts to a forbidden ritual.
You and other ghosts are taken away from your eternal slumber, and trapped inside an Arena Shooter reconstructed from the mage's own memories.
He aims to make the undead his own playerbase, reluctant pawns impersonating 90s shooters archetypes, bound to frag one other for as long as the Wizard commands.

However, the recklessness with which the magic ritual was conducted will soon start to show its consequences, and the ever thinning boundary between the magical dimension of the Arena and the real world will soon catch the interest of others...
