The next game in our G.H.O.S.T. Chronicles series. Solve a haunting and have a few scares in this adventure/hidden object thriller.

G.H.O.S.T. Chronicles: The Magician's Curse

G.H.O.S.T. Chronicles: The Magician's Curse is our 4th game as an independent game studio.  The story for this game was inspired by the unsolved murder of silent film director, William Desmond Taylor, as detailed in the book "A Cast of Killers"" by Sidney D. Kirkpatrick.  Paralleling this real life mystery, the player investigates a current day haunting at the cash strapped Price Bros. Movie Studio.  Cast and crew members have reported seeing an apparition, which some believe to be the spirit of silent film director, actor, producer Wallace Price (think Buster Keaton type).  While investigating the grounds, the player finds themselves being pulled by a spectral anomaly, and soon discovers they are on the eerily abandoned silent film sets of the 1920's.  Exploring the mysteries of the past and the perils of the present, the player must find a way to put the spirit's soul to rest.

We believe the Magician's Curse is going to be our best adventure yet.  With each game, we continue to grow as a developer.  From adding new features, refining game controls, to producing richer environments for the player to immerse themselves in, each game is a learning experience that we use to make the next game better. 

Who are we?

Mike and Heather Wright  -  We are a husband and wife team that had a dream of making video games.  Six years ago, we both left our careers to pursue that dream.  It was scary.  We had a baby son, a mortgage, and all the other responsibilities that come along with being a grownup.  But we didn't want to look back in life and wonder what if. 

We won't bore you with the details but as any small business owner can tell you, things can get pretty rough at times.  We ended up having to self finance our first game.  With barely no funds, we were unable to hire any outside help.  Heather handled the programming and music while Mike handled the artwork and loose ends.  All of the blood, sweat, and tears payed off.  Our first game, G.H.O.S.T. Hunters: The Haunting of Majesty Manor, hit the #1 spot on Real Arcade for two weeks.

While the success felt great, we knew we couldn't rest on our laurels.  Casual gaming quickly became a competitive industry.  Large companies with big budgets started entering the scene.  Soon, the personnel needed to create a competitive game rivaled that of a small Hollywood production.  We did not want to become a big machine churning out a handful of games each year.  We enjoy the creative process of making games and each one is a labor of love for us. This is why we began our Kickstarter campaign. 

Why Kick Starter?

The Magician's Curse is currently in production but we find ourselves needing help.  This game has over twice the game play of any of our previous games. The budget has run thin and there is still a lot to be done.  Funds will be used for artwork, animations, and profession vocal actors.   We even have dreams of replacing our 2D characters with live actors utilizing green screen technology.  It is a possibility if this campaign succeeds well beyond what we are seeking.

We appreciate all the support from everyone who has played our games.  The casual gaming community has been like a second family to us.  With your help, we will be able to continue bringing our dreams to your computer.

Sincerely,

Mike and Heather Wright
