Inspired by the cinematic styling of classic horror films, Ghosthunter combines high production values with solid gameplay, drawing players into a macabre, supernatural universe packed with stealth, exploration and all-out action.
Ghosthunter follows the adventures of Lazarus Jones, a Detroit cop turned supernatural demon hunter. During a routine patrol through a derelict High School, once the site of a brutal but unexplained massacre, Lazarus and his partner, Anna Steele, stumble across the ghost research laboratory of Professor Peter Richmond. Inadvertently, they release a host of deadly spirits and supernatural monsters who begin to wreak havoc around the world. One of the ghosts abducts Steele and another fuses with Lazarus gifting him with second sight, allowing him to see into the realm of the dead.
It is here that his true journey begins. Lazarus travels the haunted world hunting and capturing ghosts whilst searching for Steele, Richmond and the creature behind the original High School murders.
