Get Your Proton Packs Ready For The Ghostbusters Afterlife ScARe AR Game

Imprezario Entertainment has announced that their Ghostbusters Afterlife ScARe augmented reality (AR) game will be available on iOS and Android on 19 November 2021.

Ghostbusters Afterlife ScARe sets users in Sony Pictures’ upcoming film Ghostbusters Afterlife. In the experience, players seek to defend their surroundings amid an oncoming apocalypse. Character interactions relay hidden clues that unlock unlicensed nuclear equipment to battle supernatural entities. Banding together with newfound friends, users wage a high-tech battle against evil to overcome a town’s hidden past in order to save the day.

The game will utilize your phone’s camera, vibration fx, touch screen, LED light, ASMR audio, and other system features to offer an interactive experience. Players must duck and dodge incoming slime attacks. If unsuccessful, they find themselves wiping their view of ectoplasmic residue. Players collect and earn nuclear energy cells to power their in-game equipment by solving an ESP test puzzle, or else suffer shocking consequences.

Ghostbusters Afterlife co-writer and director Jason Reitman said:

“I’m always interested in new ways to tell stories and I’m thrilled to see the Ghostbusters mythology expand into the augmented reality front.

Ghostbusters Afterlife has always been about the Ghostbuster in all of us that wants to pick up the proton pack and this is a chance for fans of the new film to join Phoebe and the gang for a new adventure.”

In Ghostbusters Afterlife ScARe, Finn Wolfhard, McKenna Grace, Celeste O’Connor, Logan Kim and Dan Aykroyd reprise their roles from Ghostbusters Afterlife and provide guidance throughout the playing experience. Master magician, writer, and producer, David Kwong, crafted the interactive in-game elements. Kwong has built a reputation for developing intricate puzzles and illusions for such films as Now You See Me, The Imitation Game and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.

The first two episodes of gameplay will be available for free starting from 19 November 2021. Additional episodes will be available for purchase, including new episodes scheduled for release in the months after launch.

Imprezario CEO and the game’s director, Brett Tomberlin, adds:

“All episodes will incorporate the most convincing level of AR content, it is our hope we offer a generation of both past and future Ghostbusters a gateway to another dimension.”

The band, The Flux Capacitors, will be re-recording a new rendition of Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me” which will be featured in one of the first episodes in the Ghostbusters Afterlife ScARe experience.

From director Jason Reitman and producer Ivan Reitman, Ghostbusters Afterlife will premiere in Malaysian cinemas on 2 December 2021.
