The Spectre Files: Deathstalker

The “lost LaserDisc game” The Spectre Files: Deathstalker is now available on Steam for PCs! Formerly a limited arcade-only release, fans of B-Movie Full-Motion Video (FMV) games can now enjoy this experience in the comfort of their own home – just in time for Halloween!
 
Local woman Buffy McGuffin has gone missing. She was last seen walking her dog around the old Derhatchett Institute. Strapped for cash, seasoned detective Ed Spectre takes on the case all alone. However, the only discovery Spectre will make is that someone has been expecting him for dinner. What lies around the corner? The choice is yours!
 
The revival of a classic project:
 
Galloping Ghost Productions and Game Refuge teamed up to resurrect this thriller. Recaptured and digitized film takes you through the mystery as you control the interactive theater. You choose the outcome of every situation, and control the story. Discover all of the possibilities around every corner and in every room of the haunted Derhatchett Institute.
 
The Spectre Files: Deathstalker is a creation of industry pioneer Brian F. Colin (Arch Rivals, Xenophobe, Rampage, General Chaos and more). This resurrected FMV title is a B-movie adventure/horror game that was fully filmed on 16mm reels in 1984 for an intended video disc arcade release by a major arcade publisher, but the game was canceled before development could be completed.
 
Thirty years later, Brian Colin connected with arcade company Galloping Ghost Productions, and the collaboration resulted in the completion of the game and an arcade cabinet in 2016. The Spectre Files has received much positive feedback from players, and it was recognized with a Midwest Gaming Classic single-player game Best of Show award at 2019’s event.
 
Following the demand for other formats, Galloping Ghost Productions now makes its home video game debut with The Spectre Files: Deathstalker on Steam for PC!
 
GAME FEATURES:
*Make all of the decisions in this interactive movie, displayed using the restored 1980s footage. Inspired by Colin’s love of vintage horror films, The Spectre Files has players encountering multiple monsters and psychopaths as they search the run-down Derhatchett Institute for items and clues.
*Multiple paths unfold based on the player’s choices, and earlier choices can potentially affect situations encountered later in the game. There are multiple ways to reach the game’s conclusions, resulting in replayability that stretches over nearly 80 minutes of film footage.
*The full-motion video footage is tied together by an original user interface designed with Brian Colin’s signature art style.
*Quick decisions and thorough exploration are rewarded with more points for the player. A high score table allows players to compete for a personal best performance.
*The Spectre Files now includes Steam achievements, along with reconfigured mouse/keyboard controls!
