Game Information

Available on:PCOct 23, 2017

Developer: RigidCore Games

Genres: Puzzle, Platformer

Ghostory is a 2D platformer based on switching between a human form and a ghost form to pass various puzzles. It is underlined by a light-minded, yet engaging plot and retro-styled pixel art graphics.

In human form, the player can interact with levers, keys or backpack. In ghost form, the player can fly or pass through walls. The player has to cleverly use both forms to get the backpack out of the cave.

Throughout the game, you pass through dozens of carefully-crafted levels which test your logical thinking. New mechanics and unique puzzles get introduced the deeper you get into the cave, making the game easy to get into, but always challenging and non-repetitive.


Puzzles: Loads of unique levels and complex puzzles

Story: An engaging and deep, yet a little bit crazy and pun-heavy storyline

Atmosphere: Well-suited music for each level, multiple detailed environments

Gameplay: Smooth and responsive mechanics

Playtime: Over 9 hours of fun!

In Ghostory, you take role of a lone traveller who got lost in the woods. He drinks from an unknown lake and gets affected by a curse - he can transform to a ghost and fly. However, he is slowly dying.

Thankfully, he meets an old lady (with her own sense of humour) which can help him prepare an antidote - but she needs a special mushroom for it. Even though he finds the mushroom pretty fast in a cave nearby, a very unlucky earthquake occurs, trapping him inside. Will he find his way out? What secrets await him in the cave? Will the cure even work? Or will the cave be too *(g)hostile*?

Find out yourself!

Deceptively simple in its concept, Ghostory's form-swapping mechanic provides all this needs to be a neat and challenging puzzle-platformer - and one that happens to provide some pleasantly ghos... ghastly puns. Unfortunately, the fun dissolves due to the subpar level design, which makes this 25+ level adventure feel the same from beginning to end.

Ghostory offers some really challenging and thought-provoking puzzles based around a unique and genuinely enjoyable core mechanic. Beyond the gameplay there isn't much else on offer here and the infrequent save points can create real frustration.

Rigid Core's first game contains a solid central mechanic and some well-designed puzzles, but suffers from lackluster implementation and repetition.
