The Ghost Train is a short Horror Video Game by Chilla's Art.

Every night, Kensuke Tanaka takes the subway train back home. His usual routine for that always involves grabbing a drink from the vending machine, using the bathroom, and taking a smoke break. However, lately, as the nights go on, his usual ride home's been getting spooky.

The game was released on Steam for PC on July 23rd, 2020.

The Ghost Train contains examples of:

  • Fade to Black: Whenever you interact with most things that you need to, the screen fades to black, and then fades back in.
  • Fetch Quest: You have one on the first night. You need to find some green cicadas for someone.
  • First-Person Ghost: Kensuke Tanaka is never seen. He doesn't even show up in mirrors because of the game's technical limitations.
  • Multiple Endings: The game has more than one ending. You can only get the good one by speaking to the old man sitting on a bench inside the station, unlocking the option to call "Home".

  • Notice This: Anything you need to interact with has a yellow marker above it.
  • P.O.V. Cam: The game is viewed from Kensuke's point-of-view.
  • Ring Menu: The game has one, which lets you hold eight items.
