But, of course, I realised that I had to be grateful that I’ve had the opportunity of playing for a long time in some of the greatest music of my era, and that perhaps there are people whose playing I maybe inspired somehow, so I shouldn’t be mad at the world because I had to stop.

So I was eventually able to deal with it, and my meditational practices and spiritual interests did help me not to feel sorry for myself.”.

As we part, I ask a cheesy question I know that, as a believer in reincarnation, he will have been asked many times: does he want to come back as a musician in his next life.

Midnight Ghost Hunt is a beautifully silly Prop Hunt revival

Midnight Ghost Hunt is a beautifully silly Prop Hunt revival
3 mins, 16 secs

Summarize

Panic. Panic at the museum reception desk, as the astronaut suit I have belatedly possessed is set upon by a four-strong team of ghost busters. We’re in the opening seconds of the round and only 20 minutes into my Midnight Ghost Hunt hands-on preview, which means I’ve yet to figure out important concepts like ‘where the hunters spawn in’, or nuances like ‘this button lets me hide in props’ as opposed to ‘this button telekinetically waggles props about like ectoplasmic dinner bells’. As ghosts we’re supposed to mostly stay schtum for the five minutes it takes to reach midnight, at which point we get to both metaphorically and literally flip the tables on the living. Instead: panic.1

Fortunately, I’m playing with a team of developers who are happy to prioritise my immediate survival over their own. “We’ll run interference!”, yells lead developer Sam Malone over my panicked giggling. My astronaut bops between the hunter’s laser beams and harpoon bolts, miraculously clinging to unlife as Sam pelts my pursuers with taxidermied wolves from a nearby display. Another beam knocks my spectral form out of the suit, but the jig’s not up: I weave between dinosaur skeletons, jump up a ladder, turn a corner and possess an urn. I’ve escaped in the chaos, but Sam hasn’t been so lucky. “They’ve got two harpoooooooons”, he whimpers, reduced to goop that the hunters promptly vacuum up in order to prevent him respawning..

In case it isn’t clear, all of this is an absolute riot. The two best things you can do in video games are 1) trick people and 2) run away from them, and the first phase of Midnight Ghost Hunt, which is getting a closed beta at the end of the month, is largely about resorting to the latter once you’ve failed the former.
