Play OverviewPlay Overview

Ghost on the Shore (2022) is a narrative adventure about emotional and community ties that last after people pass away. You encounter a headstrong ghost who urges you to investigate an island with a tragic secret. Choices in dialogue shape the bond between the two, ultimately deciding Riley's fate.

You play as Riley, a young woman who finds herself stranded on a desolate island with a ghost determined to uncover the truth about the island on which he died. As you explore the crumbling homes of the vanished islanders you discover their belongings and get to know the ghost Josh.

As you progress it becomes clear that the choices you make are shaping the outcome of this adventure. As you make irrevocable decisions in the dialogue you shape your bond with Josh and ultimately influences the outcome of the game. It's a clever way of letting you shape the story by how you go about exploring the beautiful scenery of The Rogue Islands.

The result is a game that's more like spending time with a new friend than solving a mystery. You talk to Josh about the history of the islands, his memories, his feelings, and along the way discover who Riley is as well - her dreams and goals, and why she’s running from her old life. It's a story told with belongings and the memories of the people who left these things behind. The relationship you choose to build with the ghost defines the narrative branch you get to explore. There are four branches with a different ending for each.
