New Footage Revealed from Upcoming DSi Title Ghostwire

Upcoming augmented-reality game Ghostwire lets you hunt ghosts using Nintendo DSi.

Stockholm - June 29, 2009. The A Different Game team announces the first movie clip from the upcoming DSi title Ghostwire.

"... it was agreed, that my endeavours should be directed to persons and characters supernatural, or at least romantic, yet so as to transfer from our inward nature a human interest and a semblance of truth sufficient to procure for these shadows of imagination that willing suspension of disbelief for the moment, which constitutes poetic faith."
Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1817), poet and aesthetic philosopher

The Ghostwire software claims to enable DSi frequency scanning possibilities beyond the common 2400 MHz Wi-Fi, in the search for paranormal activity. What we haven’t seen before however, is the disclosing of infrared and thermal imagery through the obverse camera when using these possibilities!

The First Entity
Furthermore, the new footage introduces one of the metaphysical entities that the Ghostwire modified DSi is made capable of detecting; a vernal spirit called Sarah Rose. ADG implies however, that not all evident beings are willing to interact without some degree of low-level skulduggery…

Interaction Model and Inventory
Viewing this clip, you will be able to appreciate the paranormal activity interaction model, and glimpse a rudimentary version of a stylus-operated inventory. This, amongst other things, indicates that Ghostwire is not just a novelty title, but has comprehensive depth and longevity.

Watch Your Back...
Conclusively, the starlet in the clip finds herself under attack from behind from a most unaffable ghost…. Making you jump half way out of your skin, Ghostwire cunningly makes use of the fact that the DSi now have not just one but two cameras, one of which will be much appreciated as a rear view mirror! In reference to the anterior quote, The ADG team juxtaposes the Ghostwire modified DSi software and the supernatural, sufficient to procure for these shadows of imagination. And as always the grand finale ruthlessly leaves you trembling in your socks… They Are All Around You!
