You’ve been invited to a haunted house. That haunted house is a Discord server.

Find your greatest fear, spill your worst secrets, and get to the thrilling seance in This Discord Has Ghosts in It.

Players are either investigators or ghosts:

  • investigators can only speak
  • ghosts can only type

Won “Most Innovative” at the 2021 Indie Game Developer Network’s Indie Groundbreakers

A Discord-based live-action roleplaying game

Players split into two teams: investigators and ghosts.

Ghosts may only type, filling the channels of a Discord with frights! Spreading horror throughout the rooms and spaces of this house with text, images, audio, or video.

Investigators may only speak in a voice channel, with everyone listening in, like walkie-talkies or shouts throughout the space.

Throughout the game, ghosts haunt rooms while investigators explore, get spooked, and learn about the ghosts, all while narrating the horror to all players and hinting at their secret motives. Ghost players reveal parts of themselves by creating new rooms, in turn making the house a labyrinth. Investigators get to the bottom of these mysteries and spill secrets of their own.

Every game culminates in a supernatural seance. In this final act, confront each ghost about their mysteries, and each investigator about their secrets.

New to this edition

The same core game is the same, but we've revamped how the game is presented, taught, and built out tons of options for playing. We developed the roles and added some secondary goals for the ghosts and the investigators, leaned into the worldbuilding and creativity that both the ghosts and investigators do, and built a dramatic ending into every game of This Discord Has Ghosts in It.

The game comes with extensive facilitator support and tools, making the game easier to host and easier for new players to jump in. As far as extras, we've got a whole host of readymade haunts with Discord templates that include options for frights, ghosts, and investigators, a bunch of optional game modes and rules to change up the typical format all under the umbrella of the phantom lab. We even included step-by-step setup instructions (and premade templates) for folks that might not be Discord-savvy, but still want to play.
