London, United Kingdom – Application Systems and bumblebee announce the launch of GhostControl Inc. 2.0 – our turn based strategy game – for Mac/PC/Linux and available on Steam. Shipping on Steam today, version 2.0 has many improvements and new features our backers and supports requested. Encouraged by over 10,000 supporters on Steam and feedback from 1,000′s of early adopters and the press alike we’ve decided to improve the product with loads of features.
Manage a team of ghosthunters and free London from paranormal terror in turn-based battles. Develop your own strategy and build your business well. Let’s be honest – a ghost in your house can be a real pest. For centuries we have accepted hauntings as unexplained phenomena which we can do little to stop. Side affects of living in a haunted home can include sleepless nights, headaches, smog everywhere and in some cases even physical damage in the house. Enough is enough, with your help we intend to put an end to these paranormal pests. Build, manage and develop your own team of talented ghost hunters.
With the income from your team’s work you can equip them with some amazing gadgets, but manage your budget with care not everything is as useful as it may appear. Hunt your customers ghosts down – property damage should be kept to a minimum. Take on the ghosts, follow the map, take in the lovely sites and stunning landmarks.

* Loads of ghost hunting with various equipment
* Team management and strategic investment decisions
