Get some buddies and get your spook on. It's probably the funnest co-op game I've played in a long time. And god damn does it catch you off guard.

I've been thinking about this one but I try to stay away from alpha stuff. Do you really need to play with friends? Matchmaking? Or can you solo it?

The core gameplay loop is all there and I haven't really encountered any bugs in like 15 hours. It's solid.

You can play solo or join a lobby.

I strongly recommend playing with a friend or 2 if possible, though. You will absolutely have the best time going in with someone as equally clueless. Use the in-game voice for extra fun.

There's local proximity voice, and a radio. Both have gameplay implications so you're kinda cheating yourself out of it a bit if you're just using Discord or something.

This game is really fun and getting constant updates in the beta branch. The fact that the ghosts react to things the players say is a novelty that just hasn't worn off yet. :D

Love it, but I cant help the feeling that it's development is excruciatingly slow. There's only 1 guy, dknighter - as far as I know - who is doing all of the development. He's good about bug squashing, but adding features is very slow. One really cool thing about the development process is that if a suggestion in their official discord gets enough upvotes, it moves to "starred" queue for dev consideration. Saw a few suggestions that were already implemented as a result of that (e.g. ghosts that hunt the players based on the noise they make).

Btw, if you're in the Phasmophobia discord, be sure to drop by the #game-suggestions area and upvote my suggestion to add a Phylactery as a new piece of evidence. (y)

I've casually played this and I thought it was pretty solid as a VR game. It seems like there's enough replay-ability if you like scary games and everything seems to be generally bugfree and solid. I haven't played with friends, only with internet matchmaking and have had good experiences. Usually there seems to be a mixture of knowledgeable and helpful players and complete noobs like myself that screw everything up. Although a friend that tried my system ended up with 3 other people that were very experienced and got talked to like a retard apparently. I think it's worth a buy if you like VR and want to try something new, and definitely if you're into scary games. If you're just casually interested though it's probably best to wait for a sale.
