A comedic point-and-click adventure set in the world of Reality TV. Join Gus and Nancy as they solve spooky mysteries!

Help them get greenlit here.
Poltergus is a fun new take on classic mechanics. We’re adapting the old point-and-click formula to work in full first-person 3D space. Use the camera to freely look around environments and guide your character, then switch to their perspective and see things in a whole new light. The game never takes away your control over the camera, so you are free to look around for clues at all times, even during cutscenes.
The whole of Poltergus is presented as a reality TV show. That means that the story will jump-cut around in time. You’ll play through the mystery itself, one-on-one interviews with the cast and crew, behind the scenes footage, and even flashbacks to Gus’ old show. Even the menus and inventory are presented in world as part of the show, so that you’re never taken out of the experience.
A Strange Story in an Even Stranger Setting: A host of interesting characters inhabit a bizarre world where everything paranormal is normal now.
A Fresh Take on Classic Gameplay: Point and Click adventuring in a full 3D world, in first-person, and from freely swappable character perspectives.
A Different Way to Tell Stories: An interactive mystery presented entirely in the style of a reality show. Jump back and forth between the mystery itself and one-on-one interviews with the characters in ways that will constantly play with your expectations.
Full VR Support: What if you could point and click YOURSELF through the adventure? The game is fully designed to be playable with Virtual Reality hardware.
Poltergus will be available for PC and Mac in Spring 2016 as a DRM-free download and on Steam once we are Greenlit.
