 GhostControl Inc Feature

GhostControl Inc. is the game that lets you build a team of ghost hunters in a witty business sim that is paired with strategic battles. The game will be available for PC, Mac and Linux. The team behind the game has gone to Kickstarter for monetary support to make their dream a reality.

A ghost in your house would certainly be a pest and lead to sleepless nights, headaches and much more. When enough becomes enough you can help put an end to these paranormal pests by building, managing and developing your own team of talented ghost hunters!

Have you ever wanted to be a hero? With GhostControl Inc. you may just have that chance! Save the city from a ghostly invasion by equipping some amazing gadgets, managing your budget and hunting the customers’ ghosts down. Try to keep the property damage to a minimum as you take on the ghosts and enjoy the sites and stunning landmarks of London.

The newest addition to the game is the completion of the London city map.
