Ghostbusters goes live in Canada
Ghostbusters is a new freemium title from Beeline, the developer behind the likes of Smurf Village and Snoopy's Street Fair. You shouldn't let that put you off though, because it looks like there's a lot of promise in this new, fully licensed game.
Starring all of your favourite Ghostbusters, the game sees you defending New York from paranormal threats. With a hand drawn, cartoon look, and a mission based system, comparisons could be drawn between this and Double Fine's Middle Manager of Justice.
So you'll be busting ghosts, and building up a team of different Ghostbusters, each with their own specialisations. There are 'busters that heal, 'busters that trap ghosts with goo, and your standard 'busters who fire proton packs at the spirits of the dead.
You'll also need to deal with the upkeep of the Ghostbusters's base, as you'd imagine, building new training and relaxation areas as you add more slime fighters to your intrepid team.
At the moment the game is only avaialable in Canada, which is where a lot of developers send their freemium titles to get play tested by a wider audience. There's no word yet when the game will see the light of day around the world, but it's usually only a few weeks after it's sent to the Canadians.
