What if the metaphors we use in daily life -- "Traffic was being bad today" -- became real if we used them enough? And what might happen if someone managed to interfere with them?
Ghost is an online interactive illustrated narrative. The player dies, but the afterlife will not take them because their records show that the player is not dead yet. The player's only chance for a new body and a new life is to determine who is interfering with the anthropomorphic manifestations of reality. And to do that they have to change themselves. Luckily, ghosts easily pick up the traits of those around them.
During the first part of the story the POV character will develop traits, characteristics, and preferences. During the rest of the story the player will have to both find clues and change some of these traits in order to succeed, but the specific changes will depend on the scenario and villain.
You had a very bad day. And the afterlife won't take you. But if you can manage to figure out who or what is interfering with the workings of fate and the anthropomorphic manifestations of reality that dispense that fate, then you should be able to get a new body. But who is the villain, and where to start your investigations?
Player - intentionally left vague
Death - A pretty lady with a scythe in her purse
The Auditor - he keeps the books
Various other anthropomorphic manifestations of reality such as Traffic, The Tit Fairy, and Babs -- who used to be the patron saint of reality and now makes a living by crashing YouTube videos.
Assorted residents of the city (over 20 designed, but you get to find them)
A Nemesis, or is he a mentor?

I like the traits used in this game, as they are measurable personality traits. I can't wait to see how they are implemented!
Not enough content to make much of a review, an intrestng idea though.
