Here at We Are Indie Horror we love anything horror. From films to video games to music to clothing lines, if it looks creepy we want to check it out. One video game, currently in development, we’ve been following for quite some time now is the ghost hunting adventure Ghost Theory. First covered here back in February, the team behind the game have recently announced that they’ve moved development from Unity3D to CryEngine
Ghost Theory is an open world ghost hunting game in which you play as a paranormally gifted ghost hunter. Travel to some of the worlds most haunted locations, using all real ghost hunting tools, this game isn’t like Ghostbusters. Equipped with tools such as a UV lamp, a pendulum to locate buried objects, holy water, and an EVP recorder among many other gadgets, walk through the dark hallways of some of the creepiest real haunted places looking for the ghosts that inhabit them.
The move from Unity3D to CryEngine means that Ghost Theory has a chance at getting quite a large sum of cash to help complete the game. Much like WAIH, Crytek works a lot like a community. One part of this community is the Indie Development Fund, which donates around $1 million to the game which has the most likes on their site. Ghost Theory is currently in third place, with just under 1200 likes. Third place is nice, but it’s not first, ergo it will not win any money.
How can you help Ghost Theory? Head over to the Crytek website and vote for Ghost Thoery by clicking the like button. Voters will need to register with Crytek in order to vote, but that is the only hoop to jump through.
