Possession

Possession is a roguelike where you play as a ghost escaped from the underworld trying to make its way to the surface. You are incredibly weak, but have one advantage: the ability to possess other monsters.

Possession is currently in development. Sign up to receive updates:


You can also play a very old version of the game, Possession: Escape from the Nether Regions, which was made in just 7 days for the 2013 7-day roguelike challenge.
