Paper Ghost Stories: Third Eye Open, the latest ghostly apparition from Cellar Vault Games and Chorus Worldwide Games, is releasing on PC via Steam, PlayStation 5, Xbox One (X/S Compatible), and Nintendo Switch.

Third Eye Open is a new installment in the award-winning Paper Ghost Stories series, it provides a narrative-driven visual novel that follows the story of Ting, a young girl who possesses the ability to see spirits. Joined by her young ghost friend Xiu, the pair are forced to face challenges from both the real and spiritual worlds, as Ting battles to discover whether her power is a gift or a curse.

This coming-of-age narrative covers five pivotal years of Ting’s childhood when she discovers just how her powers make her different from her peers as she struggles to come to terms with her abilities. While Ting contends with trying to save her family on the verge of falling apart, she will need to navigate challenging conversations, save lost souls, solve compelling puzzles, and stealthily avoid dark spirits and other threats.

Will Ting be able to come to terms with this power? Can she help her family, friends, and those lost souls along the way? Competing spirits will ask for Ting’s help, but each has their conflicting agendas – and may hinder as much as they help Ting along her journey.

Told in the style of a paper puppet theatre inspired by Joss Paper, the story is steeped in Malaysian tradition, culture, and folklore. You’ll visit the Morning Markets, befriend an elderly monk, feast on Lok Lok and Nyonya Kuih at the Night Market, avoid the wandering spirits of the woods, and much more.

Paper Ghost Stories: Third Eye Open will be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC on September 5th, 2024.
