Mac game publisher
has announced plans to bring Ghost Master to the Macintosh. It’s a strategy game filled with ghosts set in the town of Gravenville. Appropriately, the company plans to release the game in time for Halloween (October 31), 2003.
In Ghost Master, you’re a dead civil servant, and it’s your job to scare the wits out of hapless living mortals. The Haunter Committee has sent you to Gravenville with plenty of spooks and spirits and other haunted resources in hand to get your ghoulish job done.
15 scenarios play out in 11 3D environments like the local police station, haunted house, lunatic asylum and hospital. New locations are revealed as you win each level, and you’ll get new ghosts to command as well. The game is chock-full of humor and spoofs on popular movies (with scenario titles like “Full Mortal Jacket” and “Deadfellas”).
Developed by the appropriately-named Sick Puppies, the game was published for the Macintosh by Empire Interactive, with whom Feral has previously collaborated to license the Mac version of Total Immersion Racing, a Grand Touring-style 3D auto racing game that recently reached its beta development milestone. The Macintosh conversion of Ghost Master is presently underway at Zonic.
Feral’s minimum system requirements for Ghost Master will call for Mac OS X v10.1.3 or higher or Mac OS 9.1 or higher; G3/500MHz or faster; 128MB RAM (256MB for OS X); 750MB hard disk space; and 3D-capable graphics with at least 16MB of video RAM. The PEGI (Europe’s alternative to the ESRB) rates the game for players 7 or older and notes that it contains elements that may be too frightening for younger players.
