Phasmophobia, a cooperative horror game about hunting ghosts, is one of the most-played and most-watched games on Steam and Twitch this month. UK-based studio Kinetic Games, which is made up of only one person, launched the game into Early Access on September 18.
It has more than 70 thousand people playing on Steam and nearly 150 thousand watching on Twitch only a month later.
Phasmophobia is all about ghost hunting. It puts you and three of your friends into one of several maps where you have to use different tools, like cameras and EMF sensors, to find evidence of the paranormal. It’s a mixture of tension, horror, and puzzle-solving.
