The Outbound Ghost debuted on PC in September 2022 and puts players in the role of a new spectral arrival in Outbound, a town inhabited by ghosts trapped in limbo. The player ghost helps others resolve their issues to let them pass on to the afterlife, while uncovering the mysteries behind their own death. The game features paper-style characters with turn-based battles and a badge system that lets players gain stat boosts and other effects.
