A downloadable Sad Ghost Avoider for Windows

Download NowName your own price

Sad ghosts have confused 'kidnapping' with 'making friends'. Try to escape without being seen or you'll hurt their feelings! They mean well, but they're dead and mixed-up.

Ghosts don't have great eyesight, but they can sense things in a 360 degree circle through solid objects. Stay out of their radius! 

Press S to sneak past them (but if they touch you it'll still hurt). 

Press H to use ninja energy to blend into the shadows for a few seconds (you won't get hurt if ghosts touch you). Hold R to recharge ninja energy.

W/A/S/D = movement! 

F - use sword!

Hi! Just played your game. Finished with 5% health xd. 

What's the point in the big ghost? I mean it's really scary and adds a lot of ambient, but there's no way to hide from him, even when pressing "h". 

Had a lot of fun playing it. Good job!
