ECTO-DETECT-O was a project created in the Abertay Game Development Society’s first game jam. The jam lasted a total of 20 hours. After the Jam I took the time to polish the game.
It was made in Unity 5 using C#.
The theme of the Jam was “Is It Broken?” so the Player is tasked with finding and taking pictures of ghosts with broken technology.
There are three devices that all function differently and each can be used to locate and identify each ghost, with all three having the potential to break. The player can slap the technology to get it working again.
The game is complete once the player has taken photos of all four ghosts.
Additionally, ghosts only show up visually in the player’s Camera device and only if the player has found specific items littered around the house.
