Publisher Chorus Worldwide has announced that Paper Ghost Stories: Third Eye Open will be coming to Switch and other major platforms in early 2023.
With an art style inspired by Southeast Asian paper puppetry, you take on the role of Ting as she grows up alongside Xiu, a mysterious spirit only Ting can see. You’ll guide Ting through a spooky tale of ghosts and phantoms, performing all sorts of tasks, from the menial to the menacing.
Here is more information from Chorus Worldwide:
A spooky coming-of-age story – A young girl fights for her sanity and her morals. You are Ting, a 5-year-old Chinese Malaysian girl who gradually discovers how her supernatural abilities set her apart from everyone else. Paper Ghost Stories: Third Eye Open takes players on an adventure spanning five years and more as Ting is guided and misguided by two spirits, each with their own agenda.
A living paper theater – Presented in a vibrant “paper theater” style inspired by the paper puppetry – the shadow plays – of Southeast Asia, the beautiful, childlike aesthetic belies a darker story of a falling family and Ting’s role in saving them and the haunted house at the heart of it all.
A Malaysian Adventure – From his activities and locations to his characters and dialogues, Paper Ghost Stories: Third Eye Open is steeped in Malaysian tradition, culture and folklore. Visit the morning markets, befriend an elderly monk, feast on apam balika and nyonya kuih at the night market, avoid the wandering spirits of the forests, and more.
A story with a past – Paper Ghost Stories: Third Eye Open builds on the success of Cellar Vault Games’ original award-winning short story, Paper Ghost Stories: 7 p.m. While each game stands on its own, they share characters, tone, and an identity, as does the following: They are the Paper Ghost Stories.
