Jack Haunt: Old Haunting Grounds Released

If you’ve always wanted to play a dead PI in a point-and-click adventure, your wait is over


Written by on

Here we have a bizarre minimalist adventure game from indie developer EvolvingPoet Media in which you must find your remains in the house you haunt before nightfall. Fail, and your lights will go out forever.

Jack Haunt is a pulp-style mystery with hand-drawn art reminiscent of ’50s detective stories. The game features cute ghosts, oddball humor and disurbing undertones. Discover past secrets. Make the undead your friends. Even travel through time!

The game is currently available for PC as a digital download, with Mac, Linux and possibly iOS to follow.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
