What critics are saying
“A beautifully ethereal soundtrack” – The Guardian
“As clever as it is endearing” – GamesRadar+
“Hauntii has high potential to become an indie darling” – TheGamer Hauntii is a beguiling adventure built around a creative haunting mechanic that lets you possess the environment and the creatures that inhabit it. Once you’ve taken control, you can take on enemies using the special abilities of Hauntii’s denizens and come up with ingenious solutions to overcome the many challenges littered across the game’s enchanting world. You will be possessed by a captivating blend of exploration, puzzle solving and twin-stick shooting, all set in a stunning hand-crafted world filled with charming characters, and underpinned with a ghostly mystery that will see you diving deep into your past.
Hauntii is set in Eternity, a place that exists outside of space, where all souls eventually end up. No ghost can truly die in Eternity, but all can be led astray, corrupted into hellish versions of their former selves. A mysterious race of glowing creatures, known as Eternians, guides lost souls to an ominous central tower where they appear to ascend to a higher plane. They look like angels, but no one really knows who they are, nor where they came from. Can you journey to the tower? Can you solve the mystery behind the Eternians? Can you decode your own past?
“Hauntii is a project we truly enjoyed creating, and we’re happy to be able to share it with everyone on Game Pass,” said Moonloop Games founder, Leo Dasso. “We hope you enjoy the art style and music as you play through the story of this little lost ghost.”
“Hauntii is like nothing you have seen, heard, or played before and we believe that whether you’re playing on Xbox or PC you’re going to experience something very special!,” Firestoke CEO, Paul Farley, continued.
