Welcome back ghost hunters, we've got some news for you.

The 0.8.0.0 URP update is well under way and will soon enter beta testing. The update will be a major graphics overhaul and will improve the performance across all hardware, especially for the CPU.

Until then we will be releasing bug fix patches if there are any major bugs found so please keep reporting them.

The patch notes for this update are below. This includes a major change to how the save file was being backed up which should completely fix the issue where you needed to contact us for a new save file if your save file corrupted then reset.


  • Added a cloud backup for save files. If your save file corrupts it will now revert to this instead of a local file backup

Welcome back ghost hunters, we've got some news for you.

Since changing to the new voice recognition system we have received amazing feedback for the new supported languages and platforms. With this feedback we have realised the new voice recognition didn't quite match the quality of the Windows voice recognition so we have decided to add optional support for the Windows voice recognition back in!

This update is a small but much needed update as all future content and fixes will be going into the custom difficulty update as it gets closer to release. It currently only supports Windows 10 and 11. You can read the patch notes below.


  • Added an option in the main menu to change back to the old windows voice recognition. This will only be available if your language and platform supports it.
