Phasmophobia is an unusual survival horror, which was created for cooperative mode and virtual reality (although we can also play without VR helmet). In this game we play the role of a ghost-hunting team in a haunted place. The game was developed and published by the independent Kinetic Games studio and is his debut project.

Mechanics

In Phasmophobia we observe the action from the first person perspective. The gameplay includes exploring haunted places and collecting evidence of ghosts. We use special equipment for this purpose, such as electromagnetic field meters, CTTV cameras or motion detectors (part of the equipment is managed from the truck which is our base - one of the team members is responsible for this).

It is worth noting that the longer we are in a given location (developers have prepared several different places - we have a choice of property, prison, canals or hospital), the more dangerous it becomes. There are more than ten unique types of ghosts in the game - each with its own unique characteristics, which makes subsequent investigations noticeably different from each other.

Interestingly, the game also uses speech detection, which sometimes allows us to interact with ghosts using our own voice.

Game modes

In Phasmophobia we can play alone or with other players. The game offers a single player mode, but the fun only takes on a four-person network.

The game offers cross-platform functions - it enables users using VR goggles and people using a regular PC to play together.

Technical aspects

Phasmophobia offers a decent, three-dimensional graphic design. As in most of the game created for virtual reality, the graphics do not impress on a technological level, but reflect well the atmosphere of horror. In addition, the fact that we often move around in the dark masks some of the drawbacks of the game. It is also worth noting the minimalistic interface, thanks to which nothing disturbs the player's immersion.

The game works with HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Valve Index and Windows Mixed Reality headset.
