A unique real-time strategy game by studio Sick Puppies. You play as the eponymous Ghost Master, who arrives in the town of Gravenville to terrorize and scare its citizens. The game features 23 kinds of wraiths, ghosts, and other spectral beings. Each of them has psychokinetic energy, unique powers and skills to use against humans, who can be affected by four kinds of stimuli: optical, auditory, olfactory, and thermal. You can phase through walls, create physical or spiritual peculiarities, or manipulate the environment's temperature. Your potential victims vary in terms of their lifestyle, character, and preferences, and they go on with their daily lives during the game — they clean, work or watch TV. Ghost Master consists of twenty missions involving various tasks, such as driving humans out of a given house or helping amateur sorcerers in finding the Book of Death. The production features pleasant colorful visuals with a humorous touch.
