A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Ghost Hospital is a game about anxiety, depression, despair, mental rock bottoms, and, of course, ghosts. You play as Robin, a twelve-year-old girl who has an anxiety disorder and is very much alive in this hospital meant for beings that are not alive. Frankly, her anxiety was already bad enough before she landed in a hospital full of dead people, the still-shambling shells of ancient ghosts who try to take her down for a sweet taste of life, and the hospital directors hellbent on keeping her contained, and more importantly, away from the reason she's REALLY there.

Thankfully, you have your new friends Jay and Sarcastic Ghost- Jay is a ghost about your age, and still a very new arrival to the hospital, and Sarcastic Ghost…well, he's an amorphous blob of a ghost, who talks a lot despite not having a mouth.

oh my goodness that was so good! I'm really excited for more!

Can't wait for the full game! Will it be on Steam?

Maybe! I'm looking into how to get it up there, but for the time being, I'll keep working on the demo version!

Did a little LP for it for our channel! Loved doing the voices and stuff, which is why I love playing games like this.


Thank you so much!!! I'll watch it when I get the chance!

This game is SO FUN! I have uploaded my first impression and playthrough of the game. Hope you enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=8K47AlgdfXo

Thank you very much! I'll have to watch it later!

The download link for the linux file does not work, maybe it is an incomplete file?

What? You can't just end it right before the final boss... That's not fair! It's like promising a three course meal, delivering on the starter and main courses, and as soon as the dessert shows up, you tip the bowl upside-down on my head!

I feel so betrayed.

But then again, I guess it's my fault for not clicking the 'more information' button. It's also rather thematically appropriate. But in all honesty, I adored this game. I really dug it's humour, setting and visuals, and was willing to overcome some odd control issues and visual artefacts to just enjoy the experience.

I live for games like this. Please finish it.

Sorry about that! I do intend to put the bossfight in there, as this IS just a demo as opposed to the full game. Thank you for the complements and feedback!

Looks super cool, but I don't think the Linux version is working......it's weirdly 1/3 of the size too

Wow look at this! it lookss so good! look at this UI! dude. dude
