GhostControl Inc. for Mac/PC/Linux is fully funded in its Kickstarter campaign. Twelve days left to reach stretch goals. Reactions of backers and press is very reassuring that the game concept is popular.

We've seen a lot of progress in the game in the past two weeks already, like the completion of the London City Map, the introduction of day and night cycles and much more.

Stretch goal include hundreds of voice acted exclamations for the ghost hunters such as "Ectoplasm is dripping from me ears!", "Guys we are being busted!", "Is that all you learned in the past 200 years?"

as well as "I'll show you that Britain's got talent!" or "Ha! Another one bites the dust!" adding even more fun to the game.

Another Stretch goal would add a helicopter as an option to get to the haunting scene quickly.

All new plans are outlined in a Kickstarter update here:
