Phasmophobia was released on Early Access last month and managed to pass right by our radar for spotting great indie games, and this really IS a great indie game. Phasmophobia is a paranormal, psychological horror, where you team up with up to 4 friends to investigate number of haunted maps, ranging from houses, prisons, sewers and hospitals with the developers promising to deliver many more areas as the game plans its move into a full release, pegged for next year.
The thing that makes this game stand out from other horrors it how it is played. As a team, you and your friends will be required to investigate each haunted playground to gather as much evidence as you can about the haunting, which requires you to take on different key roles, to capture what you can. One of which will require a person to be the “eyes in the chair”, the person who watches all the cameras that are set up and communicates with the team as to their surroundings and spotting any ‘odd’ events. The other roles are of the investigatory type, in which people set up salt and motion sensors searching the house, while others will use spirit boxes, Ouija boards and so many other tools to gather their evidence.
But no horror is set without a threat right, we would tell you about what dangers lurk around each corner, but one of the most fun aspects of this game, is not knowing. So, we don’t want to spoil that for you. The game is available on Steam for the amazing price of £10.99, and honestly its worth every penny. It’s got ‘overwhelmingly positive’ feedback on the platform and really is a great example of how horror should be done! The one thing we will tell you, which is an amazing addition, we recommend using the game voice chat, because the ghosts are listening, and communicating with them… is important! The game can be played normally and is compatible with VR.
