Retro Reminisce – Episode 019: The Haunting: Starring Polterguy

Happy Halloween everyone! We have a special spooky edition of Retro Reminisce this week where we take a look back at Electronic Arts’ goofy horror puzzler “The Haunting: Starring Polterguy.” Released in August of 1993, this little adventure game places the player in the shoes of a vengeful ghost attempting to scare a family out of their home. We discuss how the game still holds one of the most unique gameplay mechanics, how well it holds up 25 years later and what its current pricing trends are in case our listeners would like to hunt down a copy for themselves. Grab the episode now via iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn, Google Play Music or directly below. Thanks and enjoy the show!
