ASL-News, Mac/PC/Linux: GhostControl Inc. mysterious retro game

Bumblebee and Application Systems Heidelberg Software GmbH working in cooperation are happy to announce an exciting new joint project. The project codenamed "GhostControl Inc." is going to be a reality very soon.

"The project is so secret that even we have no idea what it is going to be exactly", says Volker Ritzhaupt, director of Application Systems Heidelberg Software GmbH.

A first Teaser video in the shortened Director's cut version is available here: http://youtu.be/P32p43C1csI

We promise the video does not contain any spoilers.

We've also recently discovered a mysterious web site and when we find the culprit we'll ensure they get no more Pizza, it's supposed to be secret, goddamnit!


Meanwhile Application Systems London Ltd. also started to work on a super secret hardware project that is somehow connected to the game. Darren Dredge, Director of the department for secret technologies said: "To look at the bigger picture, we actually want to make a video game about ghosts and hunting them down. But in order to be as realistic as possible we want to attempt to build the gadgets used in the game so we can test them in real life paranormal situations. There are about 50 more devices that we will need to build and we hope we can create a loyal community of backers over the years to support the plan. We are thinking of creating ghost traps, sensors, storage devices and a lot of other things that seem to come in handy when hunting for ghosts. Ghost Duster is just the beginning and you can learn more about that on our web site."
