[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource Games Press.]

Application Systems and Bumblebee are proud to announce the launch of our Kickstarter campaign to help bring to market the most exciting paranormal simulation game yet. We've developed a really cool game, which requires a little extra help to bring to market and to help us learn from your feedback whilst fine tuning the game.

Send your players into battle against ghosts and paranormal events.

In this hilarious turnbased strategic business simulation based around hauntings, players will be challenged with various tasks ranging from managing their team, buying the right equipment and exploring the best strategies to catch the spectres! This joint production of the two developer teams is expected to ship in September 2013.

Loads of details can be found in the description of the Kickstarter project that has just launched:

About GhostControl Inc.

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.

Be the hero of the day and save the city!

THE GAME IS STILL IN DEVELOPMENT. Alle specifications may be subject to change.
