    Game content

    The protagonists of this game explored everywhere in order to find the people or things that disappeared in the “Sunshang Mountain” known as the “Mountain of Death”, which is feared by people. They can only rely on the faint light of the flashlight and the camera “projector” that can shoot things that are invisible to the naked eye, and repel the ghosts one by one. The protagonists each embark on exploration with different purposes and ideas, and what will be waiting for them after solving the mystery…?


    The “projector”, an ancient camera with the ability to seal, that can repel the evil spirits through photography is also an indispensable and important prop in this work. Equipped with an enhanced lens or changing the negatives can carry out more powerful photography. For example, flying the Wraith’s “spiritual film” at the moment of photography, or shooting a “Fatal Shot” when the Wraith is approaching, can inflict extremely high damage on the Wraith. In addition, the “projector machine” also has a very important position in exploration or puzzle solving. It can take pictures of “invisible things” to obtain clues to find lost objects.
