Promising paranormal investigation RPG HellSign is out now on Steam Early Access
Australian developer Ballistic Interactive’s promising supernatural investigation RPG HellSign is now available on Steam Early Access, and it’s expected to remain there, being appropriately spooky, for the next 12 months.
HellSign casts players as a freelance ghost hunter, then lets them run amok around a improbably haunted Australian town. The experience is split into numerous hauntings, each set in a procedurally generated homestead and with its own specific cash-paying goal. The general idea, however, is to use your various investigatory paraphernalia – EMF scanners, UV torchlight, movement detectors, and so on – to study, identify, and, in some cases, eliminate, the paranormal threat and toddle on back to your safehouse.
Between missions, you can hop to different locations on the map, collecting new jobs for cash, stocking up on supplies, buying handy new ghost-busting equipment for your next investigation, or just shooting the breeze with HellSign’s colourful cast. And as your proficiency improves, you can take on more complex challenges, and delve deeper into the ghastly phenomenon plaguing the town.
