A powerful demon has manifested itself in Newcastle and is channeling the paranormal energy of the city's ghosts to suck our souls down to Hell.
As paranormal investigators, you must uncover the haunted locations where you meet the characters who retell these dark stories. Solve their tasks in return for demonic symbols that will help you exorcise the demon and save the city.
Whether you believe in ghosts or not, Newcastle is home to some mysterious, gruesome and also very odd tales indeed. The stories featuring in Thirteen Ghosts are inspired by some of our favourite accounts of sightings and hauntings which are widely available to read in books and online.
The game uses an app and the GPS capability of a smartphone to tell the story and guide you through the city where you'll encounter puzzles and challenges. Just like in an escape room by working as a team to solve the puzzles you'll make progress in the game. Starting opposite Newcastle's Central Station and ending in Gallowgate, you plan your own route to historic locations which will also take you near cafes , shops and bars if you feel like stopping for a while. There is a list of establishments that have outside seating and can serve food and drinks.
