“Spooks” is as close to the Land of the Dead that you can get with a pulse. In this immersive Sierra-style adventure, you play as Mortia, an adorably cynical little ghoul girl. The game starts with your average visit to the Carnage-Val, a theme park where the only thing more dysfunctional than the rides is the staff.

When a smooth-talking carnie convinces Mortia to play a game of darts, the last thing she expects to win is a live goldfish. Especially because there hasn’t been a living thing in the Land of the Dead for a very, very, very long time. Suddenly Mortia has to figure out how to save her little fish, who she calls “Spooks,” from a decidedly deadly end.

    Abandonia Reloaded

    It is not always easy to come up with something new and original especially in the adventure genre. Many ideas have been done so often but it is refreshing to see new ideas being taken in different directions.

    An Occasional Player’s Review

    Spooks is an adventure game I won’t hesitate recommending to those who are new to adventure games and those looking for a few hours’ worth of entertainment. If you need something short, funny, and memorable, give Spooks a whirl. You’ll definitely like it.
