Good news for people who love flat things and ghosts: The outgoing mind, a Indie Paper Mario-style adventure game, is now live on Kickstarterwhere you can put it aside for any amount from one Swiss franc (get your name in the credits) to 2,775 Swiss francs (around £ 2k or $ 3000) if you want to become a ghostwriter for the game (you get it? ).
This is how the Kickstarter describes the game:
The Outgoing ghost is an adventure game about a ghost figuring out the cause of his own death and helping others come to terms with the afterlife.
You play an amnesiac who wakes up on the outskirts of the city. It just so happens that a few weeks before you got into the picture it was the location of a serial murder.
The ghosts in the game – including you who are ghosts – are “the embodiment of regret” and remain in the world over an unfinished business. It is up to you to help these people by participating in different puzzles to lead them to some kind of enlightenment. There’s even a lock picking mini-game! Everyone loves lock picking mini-games!
Unlike many Kickstarter games – which often have console releases as stretch goals – The Outbound Ghost has already been confirmed for both Switch and Steam, bringing the Poltergeist Patron Baker level ($ 20 / £ 15) you a digital copy of the game on Switch.
The financial goal for the Kickstarter is just over £ 7,000 and just under $ 10,000, and it’s halfway there!
