I absolutely love this game. I got a pre launch package, simply amazing!  I love the game and characters so much. Kai Boo is so cute and I love the Dj !!! The maps are beautiful and the art is so amazing. Everything flows so great together  from the background to the music to the story its really a relaxing, fun and challenging game to play.  My kids love playing this game just as much as I do, so I definitely recommend it for all ages. I'm so glad it has controller support, I feel like the developers put a lot of time into all of the details of this game. Honestly I could just spend time flying around as Kai Boo doing nothing and still enjoy it lol its super cute 

I had was honored by getting the Pre-Launch edition of this game. I will tell you the amount of details that went in to the packaging and the artwork is outstanding. You can tell this was not a game that was thrown together in a day. I loved all the little things that was in the prelaunch kit. The puzzle game was challenging at times and I will say I got lost some times. So make sure you are watching for the details and little hints. The sound track was great never was over powering and flowed. Even in the areas where I got stuck the music was not something I got sick of. Never once did I want to turn it completely off which I have done on other games. This is amazing done by one person and I think it shows how much Norman cares about his game. If you like puzzles and great chill music for sure check this one out.

A fun puzzle game with incredible art and and awesome music.  You will have fun exploring the mazes and interacting with the game.  This game is perfect for those needing a quick escape into a nostalgic world.  Definitely a great grab!!

I got the pre-launch edition that came with a lot of awesome little goodies and it was awesome. So far I’m about halfway through the game and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. It is incredibly aesthetically pleasing I love the art style and all of the colors, don’t even get me started on the music it’s awesome. The game itself runs incredibly smooth and I like the fact it’s a game where you can just sit down and chill out and play rocking to the sound track and you don’t have to think too hard it’s a solid little puzzle game! 

Dad, thank you for letting me play test your game! I had a lot of fun playing it and I love all of the characters, especially Buggy. Hey peoples, if you like puzzles, then you should play this game!

I received a pre-launch edition of this game and it’s a lot of fun. The maze designs are done really well, the characters and story are great, and the humor is quite funny. The music is really good too. It’s a very chill and fun little game that’s suitable for all ages. I highly recommend Ghostly Thoughts. 

Thank you for taking the time to play and leave a comment. Glad you enjoyed the game and recommend it!
