Description from the packaging.

Sometimes fact is more frightening than fiction...

Do ghosts exist?
The question has fascinated mankind for centuries.
Dare you uncover the astonishing evidence for yourself?
Starring Christopher Lee.

Doctor Marcus Grimalkin (played by Christopher Lee) has devoted his life to the study of ghosts and paranormal occurrences. However, feeling he is still no closer to uncovering the truth, he decides to spend a weekend researching the evidence he has compiled. What better place to do this than Hobbs Manor, reputedly the world's most haunted house?

Dare you join Dr. Grimalkin and discover the answers for yourself? Help him uncover the truth about the paranormal- use the material you will find around the house to make up your own mind. Exploring the house will uncover objects which access factual content such as spirit photographs, poltergeist recordings and testimonials, dramatized ghost stories and real life experiences.

Although Dr. Grimalkin is a fictional character, all other contributors are real-life experts and witnesses. The investigations in Ghosts are not reconstructions, but genuine research into the phenomena.

At last, adventure gameplay and content-based multimedia meet head-on.
Ghosts- you've never seen anything like it!
