For limited time only: Full version free on HumbleBundle! Spookify town's people in various ways and collect their soul power to resurrect yourself. Use different objects to your advantage, collect gold because money is important even when you're dead and spend it to unlock multiple powerups that aid your further poltergeist adventures. Visually appealing, controls feel great and game itself is original and fresh. Really love the idea to add different funny death scenarios for each level. There's also a demo version available. Gotta keep an eye on Modesty for future games.
The Spookening is a 3D scare ‘em up game à la Tim Burton. You die every night and spawn as a ghost trying to resurrect.
Scare villagers out of their wits and grab their soul power during the midnight hour in order to resurrect!

˙˙\\\ Overview ///˙˙
Clifftown is haunted. The innocent villagers never asked for any of this spookening to happen, but neither did you ask to die each and every night with the knowledge that the villagers “Soular Power“ could bring you back to life.
In The Spookening you enter as Hero Hermans ghost. Can you change Hermans fate, and give him a chance for another day among the living?
By learning the rules of the world beyond, you will gain the skill and the wit to take precious “soular power” from the living. By using this power and pouring it into your former meat shell you get a chance to live once more.
But things on the other side are seldom this easy. Other beings from beyond view you as a trespasser and will protect their turf. Vengeful spirits form when your scaring goes too far, and demons living in the shadows will be after you.
Save yourself! At any cost?
