Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is an adventure game developed and published by Capcom. Ghost Trick's story centers on the amnesiac ghost of the recently deceased protagonist, Sissel, and his struggle to discover who he was and how he died. The player, assuming the role of Sissel, must perform various "Ghost Tricks" to solve puzzles and navigate the land of the living in spectral form.
The lead development, writing, and directing were handled by Shu Takumi, creator of the Ace Attorney franchise. The game was released for the Nintendo DS in Japan on June 19, 2010; in North America on January 11, 2011; in Europe on January 14, 2011; and in Australia on January 20, 2011. An iOS version was released in Japan on December 16, 2010 and the rest of the world on February 2, 2012. An HD remaster was released on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows and Xbox One on June 30, 2023.
Ghost Trick is an adventure game in which players control Sissel, a ghost who uses his unearthly powers to save lives. During gameplay segments, players can swap at will between the Land of the Living, where time flows naturally, and the Ghost World, in which time is stopped. In the Ghost World, Sissel can travel between objects within a certain radius. These objects are represented by blue cores, and in the Land of the Living, Sissel can animate these objects to perform actions, known as "Ghost Tricks", that open new paths or influence the characters around him. For example, moving a tray of donuts will prompt a character to change where he or she is currently seated, as well as giving Sissel access to new areas.
Much of the plot is driven by Sissel's ability to possess corpses. When he does this, he can return to the time four minutes before the corpse's death. In these four minutes, Sissel can attempt to use his Ghost Tricks to alter the situation, and ultimately change the future by saving the person's life. He can also communicate with the ghost of whomever he is saving, but only if the ghost is conscious. If the player fails to save the victim in time, he may choose to go back to the beginning of the four minutes, or return to a checkpoint created when the player manages to alter fate a little. Later in the game, players can switch control to Missile, the ghost of a small dog. Missile's spirit has a longer reach than Sissel, and has the ability to swap the position of two objects that are of the same shape. The majority of Ghost Trick's gameplay segments consist of the puzzles that make up these scenarios.
