Watching Ghostbusters as a kid basically meant that we all believed in ghosts to some extent. Sure, we knew Slimer wasn’t going to come around the corner because Spengler had him under control, but also, what if he did?
We weren’t about to get caught off guard, so we spent all our free time rewatching the movie, catching up on the cartoon, and playing with every Ghostbusters-themed toy we could find to make sure our ghost catching skills were up to snuff.
Personally, I know that I had countless dreams where I would be chasing the ghosts around my neighborhood in my super cool jumpsuit, and while I have never caught a ghost in my waking life, it did inspire a lifelong obsession with the paranormal.
We can’t really know for sure what happens after we die, because no one who has done it can really let us know, so maybe there’s a chance that one day all this ghost hunting training will be put to good use!
Well, apparently we’ve waited long enough. Instead of waiting for the real ghosts to come back, a gaming company has created a way for us to experience our favorite ghost hunting movie in the real world!
Similar to Pokemon Go, this new game will feature and augmented reality (AR) setting, so your camera will operate in the game to let you see your environment, only instead of little Pokemon, there will be amazing ghosts!
Slimer and all of his ghoulish pals will be hopping into your phone and it’s your job to stop them from destroying your city.
Here’s what the creators have to say about their new awesome game…
The game will be called Ghostbusters World and it features an “all-new state-of-the-art augmented reality game” which allows players to “battle and capture hundreds of ghosts from all dimensions of the franchise.”
So far we only have a few details, but the company FourThirtyThree Inc. has teamed up with Sony Pictures to create the officially licensed game that is coming sometime this year.
They revealed a few images of the game play and it looks really awesome. Judging by the picture you get your own proton pack, shoot the ghosts, and then you have to throw a containment unit to capture them.
