More Details Revealed For Upcoming Augmented Reality Game ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife ScARe’

NOV 19, 2021

We’ve already told you a bit about Imprezario Entertainment’s upcoming AR mobile game Ghostbusters: Afterlife ScARe, which releases later this week for Android and iOS devices on the same day as Ghostbusters: Afterlife hits theatres. Imprezario has now revealed more info about the game, which will be split up across multiple episodes.

The first two episodes will be available for free beginning from the game’s launch, with additional episodes available for purchase in the following months. All of the episodes will incorporate state-of-the-art technology to immerse users into a paranormal thriller set in the original Ghostbusters universe.

The player’s phone’s camera, vibration effects, touch screen, LED light, ASMR audio, and other phone features “offer users the highest level of interactive experience.” As mentioned previously, the goal of the game is to defend yourself from an oncoming apocalypse. You’ll have to duck and dodge incoming slime attacks from ghosts. If unsuccessful, you’ll find yourself wiping the screen of ectoplasmic residue. Players collect and earn nuclear energy cells to power their in-game equipment by solving an ESP test puzzle, or else suffer shocking consequences.

Finn Wolfhard, McKenna Grace, Celeste O’Connor, Logan Kim and Dan Aykroyd reprise their roles from Ghostbusters: Afterlife and provide guidance throughout the playing experience. Writer, producer and Master Magician David Kwong was on hand to craft the interactive in-game elements. “I’m always interested in new ways to tell stories and I’m thrilled to see the Ghostbusters mythology expand into the augmented reality front,” said Ghostbusters: Afterlife co-writer and director Jason Reitman.

Written by Gil Kenan and Jason Reitman, and starring Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace and Paul Rudd, with appearances from Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Dan Aykroyd, Annie Potts and Sigourney Weaver, Ghostbusters: Afterlife will debut exclusively in movie theaters on November 19.
