Was over on Kickstarter killing time and I found this lil possible gem of a game.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1184280206/ghostcontrol-inc

I dont have anything to do with this game, (other than just KS backing it) but I just thought it has a very interesting take and approach to the ghostbusters genre.  No fancy graphics just a lot of good ideas.  Gameplay FTW..

So anyway I though maybe some of you guys may appreciate a heads up on this hidden title.

I posted this info on the Steam Deals thread of OO:

For those who might have an interesting in GhostControl Inc. which is on sale for 50% off, you can go to the developer website and on the downloads page you can download the full game as a demo.

So you can check out the game for yourself. I gave it a try but wasn't very impressed; it's just not my type of game.

Ok, I downloaded the demo (which I hate doing icon_razz).  It is my type of game; itís just not done very well.

Itís a very simplified Xcom crossed with a very lite management game.  There is no real depth to the combat as far as I could see; pretty much walk in, shoot a couple times, place trap.  The business side of things is almost as shallow.  It made me feel like it should be a cheap iPad game.  It also has a subpar interface and unappealing graphics.
