31 OCTOBER 2018 – The team at Incendium Games are pleased to announce that their comedy-horror fan favourite, Phantom Halls, today hits V1 and leaves Steam Early Access after 18 months!
To celebrate the release, Incendium has unveiled a brand new launch trailer for the game.
Phantom Halls is a side-scrolling squad-based comedy-horror title for PC. Players control a group of teens from the Occult Studies Club at a local high school, as they team up for their assignment but find themselves fighting to survive the night in a procedurally generated haunted mansion.
The teens will need to work as a team if they’re going to make it out alive. Fortunately, Phantom Halls features both a single-player mode – in which players take control of the entire party, each character with their own independent action buttons and special skills – and drop-in/drop-out local co-op.
Phantom Halls entered Steam Early Access in March 2017 and provided players with a simple game loop, a handful of characters and a few quests to complete. Over the past 18 months, Incendium have been hard at work adding a variety of systems and content.
The V1 version includes story content, an entire caseload of quests to play, a full progression and unlock system, and dozens of characters to rescue and add to your team – including an officially licensed Ash Williams from the Evil Dead series!
Further content and gameplay updates will follow post-launch, including online co-op. Phantom Halls is out now via Steam, priced at $19.99 / £15.54.
About Phantom Halls
A group of teens from the Occult Studies Club set out on an assignment, but quickly find themselves attempting to survive a night in a haunted mansion. Prepare to face the undead terrors that stalk the phantom halls! Squad up to escape alive using whatever you can find, but remember – you can’t kill what you can’t see, so be sure to bring a flashlight…
With fast-paced, action-packed gameplay and a 3D papercraft visual motif, Phantom Halls features both single-player and local co-op, with online co-op to be added in the future. Single-player sees players take on the roles of multiple characters at once – with each character’s actions assigned to a different key. Meanwhile, drop-in/drop-out local co-op functionality allows friends to team up to fight the onslaught of spooky foes.
Featuring a playable Ash Williams and other officially licensed Evil Dead 2 content, Phantom Halls began its life in Steam Early Access in March 2018. Over the past 18 months, developers Incendium Games have been adding various systems and content to make Phantom Halls the best game it possibly can be. The V1 version is out now via Steam, priced at $19.99 / £15.49.
