“Ghost Sweeper has been a labor of love for us,” said said Nrupesh Gajjar of Total Console. “We got our start making games as far back as the Commodore 64 era, and have always had a soft spot for 80s puzzle games. Ghost Sweeper takes that design, but applies it with a modern coat of paint to create something that will appeal to gamers of all ages.”
