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.

  • Dozens of possessable monsters, from the horrifying to the hilarious, with a wide variety of powers.
  • Special themed levels with unique hazards, creatures and layouts. Randomly generated, so each playthrough is different.
  • Quick to pick up and play.
  • Item-less gameplay. The dead have no need for worldly possessions, they just slow you down.
