London, 1889. Following a rise in supernatural phenomenon and spiritualist craze, a group of scientists and psychics creates the Ghostbuster initiative, the first company dedicated to fighting the preternatural menace. The scenario is a light-hearted, character-driven adventure, which is a riff on the Ghostbusters franchise in a steampunk Victorian setting.
Characters will follow a classic Hollywood blockbuster 3-act stories in a blend of personal, more intimate moments and action scenes. Though starting as diverse and sometimes adverse personalities, how will they learn to work together to defeat a major threat through the power of friendship?
Player type: you like interacting as colorful characters through personal interactions more than pure action or intrigue. You enjoy action that is narrative and cinematic more than mechanics-based. You may have a nostalgic fondness for the Ghostbusters franchise, but no knowledge of the original Ghostbusters is necessary to play the game.
