Ghost video game Developed by 5K studios

Developed by 5K studios

Ghost is a first-person horror game made in realistic 3D graphics that immerses you in an atmosphere of horror and scares you in every way. The gameplay consists of collecting notes and videotapes, solving riddles and escaping ghosts, as well as other mechanics inherent in any horror game. The main goal is to survive and be saved.

Brief background:

Ghosts live everywhere, in our cities and villages. These mysterious creatures walk and fly through us, and what's more scary, they can physically affect us, or even kill us!

So, the hero of this game was "lucky" to meet these unusual creatures and not only meet, but also feel in his own skin all that ghosts can be!

The main character, an ordinary unremarkable guy named Klim, ended up in a rather strange abandoned place. From the very beginning, the place that Klim got into begins to catch up with negative emotions, and the more the main characters are in a strange building, the more they become convinced that he is not alone there.

You have to overcome your fear, going through gloomy locations for the main character, solving various puzzles along the way and trying to understand what is happening, how you got here, and most importantly, how to get out of this place.

Nyanbaba from the cat's ear planet came to earth in a flying saucer and burned his tongue with milk tea as soon as he landed. Angry nyambaba, she said she would retaliate against mankind with magic!

Introduction to the game:

This is a very scary (cute?) Looking for hidden item type click game!

The game player plays the weak and stupid human, investigates suspicious hidden objects in various styles, and does not let Nyanbaba's magic trick succeed.

Some of the hidden points are illogical or strange, and some may be ancient and strange big monsters (little cute?).

Please find all hidden points within the time, otherwise the villain nyanbaba will jump out and scare the players with very, very scary (actually cute) Chinese voice!

Playing methods and features:

Lovely story setting, lovely art style, lovely Chinese dubbing.

It contains 10 different scenes, and each scene contains 20 strange hidden points.

Different from the traditional hidden goods game, it is not a reference comparison between the left and right of the two pictures, but a single picture, with a wider field of vision.

After playing each scene repeatedly and accumulating 100, the button to enter the second round mode will appear.

Hidden points appear randomly in the first round, and all hidden points appear in the second round.

Click error to deduct seconds. Deduct more seconds in the second round.

Suitable for family fun of all ages.

The rules are simple and there is no language understanding barrier.

Hidden achievements are hidden in built-in secrets.

Suitable for works, gifts for children and girlfriends, as well as all cat girl fans!

Because the personal charm of cat girls may lead to mental retardation of some players, and the symptoms are deliberate failure.
