Midnight Ghost Hunt is a unique take on the well-renowned Prop Hunt party mode in various games such as Garry's Mod. Developer Vaulted Sky Games describes it as a "ghostly hide-and-seek multiplayer" title. Ghosts must hide in furniture and hurl themselves at Hunters, who in turn must destroy all of the ghost. At Midnight, the Ghosts turn the tables and now hunt the Hunters!

 

Midnight Ghost Hunt was revealed at E3 2019 during the PC Gaming Show. Sam Malone, the lone developer of the game, explained his project as a 4v4 experience. Four ghosts hide in various pieces of furniture, while four hunters look for suspicious pieces of furniture to zap. When the tables turn, though, the the hunters must survive until their evac arrives.

The Prop Hunt game mode in Garry's Mod serves as a direct inspiration for the game, per Malone's account. However, he wanted to add a twist to it, which inevitably led to the shift in power in the middle of a match. Suddenly, it wasn't just about the props hiding from the seekers.

 
 

The game started its alpha soon after it was revealed. Prospective players can sign up for a chance to get into the alpha by going to the game's websiteMidnight Ghost Hunt will launch on Steam, and you can wishlist it now ahead of its release.
