Passionate Game Design


Haunted is a role-playing game for three or more players about a murderer being stalked by the ghost of his victim.  One player takes on the dedicated role of the murderer, another player takes on the dedicated role of the ghost, and everyone else plays a rotating cast of secondary characters as needed.  Will the murderer be brought to justice or go free?  Will the ghost be banished or bring about revenge?  Will crisis be averted or brought to disaster?  Only play can answer these questions.

Haunted was originally written for the February 2011 Ronnies using the words Whisper and Murder as inspiration.  It placed as a runner up.  The current working draft of the game can be found here:
