Ghost Trick

I will be telling you of a game.
But not just any game, this game is actually one of the best I've ever played.
If you've ever heard of Phoenix Wright (which you probably have) it's by the same guy who made that, and there are some cameos.
The game is Ghosttrick, and it's awesome.

You are Sessil, a murder victim with no recollection of who killed him and how he came to be a ghost. As a ghost he finds he has the power to manipulate objects and change people's fates by going back to four minutes before they died. He does all this with a desire to discover who he is before he ceases to exist at dawn, but as you can expect he gets more than he bargained for.
Not only is the gameplay, on the DS, very innovative, delightfully similar in style to some online casual games, it has one of the best plots I have ever seen in a videogame. Strike that, it has the best plot I have seen in a videogame. It has fascinating characters, stays engaging throughout and has one of the most satisfying endings I have experienced in the gaming world.

Anyway, I'll stop plugging/writing-a-review for Ghost Trick. Olivia and I just finished with it so its effects are still fresh.

The Chickadees are still incubating! Hopefully they'll hatch in about two days.


  1. yay!!! chickadees :D
    and bringing people back to life!

  2. oooooh like an inverted murder mystery. It's like evolutionary psychology; working your way backwards to explain how you got where you are. Except I hate evolutionary psychology, and this sounds interesting :)

  3. i have a question: if the guy can go back four minutes from b/4 he died, why is he dead? i'd just go back & make sure i didn't die. :) or at least look to see who killed me so i could haunt them for the rest of their life. (only kidding; i'd have better things to do on the other side.) But, maybe i just don't get it (the game). you'll have to teach me. ;) so...are you the proud father of a bunch of chicadees yet?! best wishes tonite. luv, mumsy
