A team of Ghostbusters in 1889 Victorian London. A light-hearted character-based action scenario focusing on friendship and teamwork within a complicated team of colorful individuals.

Keywords: Victorian – Ghost hunters – Friendship

London, 1889. Following a rise in supernatural phenomenon and spiritualist craze, a group of scientists and psychics creates the Ghostbuster initiative, the first company dedicated to fighting the preternatural menace. The scenario is a light-hearted, character-driven adventure, which is a riff on the Ghostbusters franchise in a steampunk Victorian setting.
Characters will follow a classic Hollywood blockbuster 3-act stories in a blend of personal, more intimate moments and action scenes. Though starting as diverse and sometimes adverse personalities, how will they learn to work together to defeat a major threat through the power of friendship?

Player type: you like interacting as colorful characters through personal interactions more than pure action or intrigue. You enjoy action that is narrative and cinematic more than mechanics-based. You may have a nostalgic fondness for the Ghostbusters franchise, but no knowledge of the original Ghostbusters is necessary to play the game.

Her short formats have been featured at the Smoke and Grenselandet, with games such as Flowers of May, Sorority, and Between Limbo and the Veil.

Et hold af spøgelsesjægere i viktoriatidens London 1889. Et muntert karakterbaseret action-scenarie med fokus på venskab og teamwork på et hold af farverige personligheder.

Stikord: Viktoriansk – Spøgelsesjægere – Venskab

London, 1889. Efter en opblussen af overnaturlige fænomener og spiritisme, har en gruppe videnskabsfolk og synske dannet Ghostbuster-Initiativet; det første selskab dedikeret til at bekæmpe den overnaturlige svøbe. Scenariet er et muntert, karakterdrevet eventyr baseret på Ghostbusters-franchisen sat i en viktoriansk steampunk-setting.
Karakterne følger en klassisk Hollywood-blockbuster tre-akters historie med en blanding af personlige og mere intime øjeblikke samt actionscener. Hvordan vil de lære at arbejde sammen og besejre en stor trussel igennem venskab på trods af deres forskellige og nogle gange modsatrettede personligheder?

Spillertype: Du kan lide at interagere med andre spillere som farverig karakter igennem personlig interaktiv mere end blot igennem action og intrige. Du kan lige action der er historiedrevet og filmisk mere end blot mekanikbaseret. Du har måske endda en nostalgisk kærlighed til Ghostbusters, men kendskab er ikke en forudsætning for at spille scenariet.
