A town full of death.
A haunted town, these days. Literally.

You are one of the victims, a ghost that can't remember his own name. Can you solve the mystery of your own death, and those in the town around you?
Game includes: *HELP* Function, Inventory system, interactive characters, painted backgrounds, extensive plot, Passwords (so that you can have a break to eat cheetos), sly commentary, and more.
It is a large game, the size reflects the content. It is NOT a simple action game, or spoof, or parody, but an extended mystery to be solved. There is also a difficult version, this one includes helpers and a better map. This also includes the new ability to use the arrow keys for movement, as requested by the reviewers!

I wish this had metals. Great game though. I remember playing this when I was little.

It's an old game, but it doesn't disappoint. Although I found the map to be too confusing and frustrating, the story was amazing which kept me playing throughout the end.

Definitely a classic, and one of my favorite flash games of all time, I remember playing this in Middle School. :)

I love the heavy, slightly dark mystery feel to it (Paranormal Noir?).

Pointless or not, for such an old game, it's really nice that there's a lot of areas to explore and a lot of things to look at with detailed descriptions. It adds a lot of depth to it.

I also like how around the end, there's a computer you can use the type of names of the characters to get more information on them, and I think even their relatives.

My only complaint is that after all these years, there doesn't seem to be a second one. :( I'm not sure what else you'd do though except make another game about different ghost people since a prequel to this would probably have to be a different game altogether (at least not involving you as a ghost, unless your one of the other ghosts), and a sequel wouldn't be needed since they seem to be in peace by now.

It has few problems, but still an interesting classic.
