Everybody loves a good scare. The feeling of adrenaline rushing through our veins, hands shaking, and screaming from the top of our lungs– it all makes for an exciting story.

Phasmophobia is an intense fear of ghosts. For people with a ghost phobia, the mere mention of supernatural things — ghosts, witches, vampires — can be enough to evoke irrational fear. Other times, a movie or TV show might be responsible.


Phasmophobia is not just a phobia but it is also the title of a game. The game in question is indie co-op psychological horror developed by Kinetic Games. It was released in early access on 18th September 2020 for PC with crossplay VR support. As its main mechanics, you will play with up to three other players as a team of paranormal investigators and explore haunted locations filled with paranormal activity.


Experience thrilling moments of gameplay as you interact with the ghosts, spirits, and other paranormal phenomena. Support your team by monitoring the location with CCTV cameras and motion sensors from the safety of the truck or head inside and get your hands dirty with the ghostly activity that will get increasingly hostile as time goes on.


Ghosts are the main focus of Phasmophobia. A ghost is the incorporeal spiritual essence of a dead person that lingers on Earth for whatever reason, often having been killed from sudden and violent deaths.


It is the main objective of the player(s) to enter and explore abandoned haunted locations, to gather evidence and search for Ghost Activity, investigate and come to a conclusion about a Ghost’s presence and classification. Ghosts will not remain passive and, once agitated or threatened, will begin initiating Hunts in which they become corporeal, seeking out and killing any player they can find. Ghosts feed off of players’ fear (or Sanity), draining it and making them more likely to be killed.


There exist twelve different types of Ghosts, each with unique strengths, weaknesses, abilities, and temperaments. As such, figuring out the type of Ghost on your map is essential.
