Ghost Dick: Murdered – Soul Suspect

By Adam Smith on May 7th, 2014 at 9:00 am.

a ghost trick is something a ghost whore does for ghost money

In Murdered: Soul Suspect, the man who killed you is primed to strike again. Catching him will be hard, partly because you’re a flimsy fedora ghost but mostly because this murderer leaves “no clues and no leads”. That’s according to the news reports in the trailer below, although they do mention immediately afterwards that a ‘crude drawing of a bell’ is left at the scene of the murders. That seems like it might be a clue, or maybe even a lead. Whether any information can be gleaned from the drawings or not, their existence has led to the perp being lumbered with ‘The Bell Killer’ as his murder-name. I was hoping that phantom protagonist Ronan O’Connor would make a grave reference to the fact that he met his bell end at the hands of the bell killer but, alas, it is not to be.

I keep thinking this is a David Cage game, partly because it has a colon and a soul in the title. Maybe it’s that connection playing tricks on my eyes but the victim at the beginning of the trailer looks a bit like Ellen Page, doesn’t she? Maybe Willem Dafoe will make an appearance at some point playing Denis Leary’s ghost.

    As someone who can’t walk past a dirty car without stopping to scrawl a crude drawing of a bell on it, this game is very relevant to my interests.

    Bets on the console version coming out first, with 6 months before the PC is even considered?

      I’m pretty sure it’s out at the same time, I’m about to buy an R9 280X and AMD are bundling it with most R9 cards this month. Presumably because they needed something to match Nvidia’s promo on Watchdogs.

    Sorry. I only play late ’90s serial killer movies if they have virtual Morgan Freeman in them.

    Plan family dinners where everyone sits at the table, eats, and talks about their day.
    Make dinners special so everyone likes to spend time together while eating.

    Still looks like Ghost Trick, minus Shu Takumi’s cartoony sense of humor.

    Was sort of curious about this, then they showed the gameplay footage where your Ghost could clearly only walk through designated walls and interact with designated objects. Lazy development solution.
