Phasmophobia is a VR App.


Phasmophobia is the fear of ghosts and fear you will! You and your team are investigators of paranormal activity, searching for evidence to define different types of ghosts in your area. The more evidence you gather, the more money you get to purchase more equipment for your investigations.

Cross-play with up to 4 other Ghost Hunters on VR or PC to end the paranormal activity. Play as the "man in the chair" watching and guiding others through locations or jump into the action and investigate for yourself.

Interactions with hauntings are different each time you play and upon early access release, can be explored using 7 different maps, including houses, a prison, and an asylum. Purchase and utilize a Ouija Board, Salt, EMF Reader, Motion Sensors, UV Flashlight, Spirit Box, and 16 other pieces of equipment to find answers.[1]


  • Cross-platform
  • Co-op multiplayer
  • 10 different types of ghosts
  • 22 tools for investigating
  • Interact with ghosts using your voice through Ouija Boards and EVP Sessions using a Spirit Box


David Jagneaux at UploadVR compared Phasmophobia to the premise of Ghost Hunters. Game play was "extremely unnerving" and noted the mostly dark rooms that your flashlight could only partially illuminate and being locked in a room by a ghost, just to witness it "causing [his] friend's body to limply fall down the stairs."[2]
