Blue Thistle Ghosts . . .
. . . is a game about a long-haul trucker named Jo, who's just hoping to bake some pumpkin bread and meet a ghost. Standard stuff, y'know?
The game has a branching story path, with four possible endings and eight achievements to collect throughout, which all together clock in at just under 4k words. A guide to unlocking all endings and achievements is available in the devlog, here!
Downloads of the game come in a ZIP also containing the pivotal pumpkin bread recipe (which you can also download separately & enjoy - we had fun developing it!). Blue Thistle Ghosts is also available to play in-browser, but can experience significant lag and loadtimes - we definitely recommend downloading for the best experience.
Blue Thistle Ghosts was made for the 4th annual Spooktober Visual Novel Jam - if you like it, spread the word!
This game also has SAVE, LOAD, and FAST-FORWARD options, as well as further audio and text speed configuration settings which can be changed whenever there's text on the screen.
There's no Back option, though scrolling while in-game will bring up a BACKLOG of the most recent lines.
