Ghost Attackers VR is a cooperative shooter located in VR Park Tokyo. One player wears a VR helmet and is dropped into a haunted mansion, tasked with obliterating ghosts with a particle accelerator. (I’ve been assured that any resemblance to blockbuster 1984 films is coincidental.) The second player participates via a tablet, playing the role of a drone who provides crucial illumination for the primary player.
The mandate here was clear: a cinematic symphonic approach reflecting the game’s larger-than-life sensibility, madcap pace, and zany humor. Though gameplay was similar between rooms (up to the final boss) I tried to give each room its own musical signature: the opening foyer a frenetic prestissimo, the kitchen a nervous scherzo with Eastern European folk flavor, the ballroom a diabolic grand waltz, and so forth.
I haven’t been to Tokyo to play the game but if the screaming teenager in the video below is any indication, it’s a lot of fun.
