Messhof's upcoming indie title "Ghost Bike" melds cycling with the supernatural beyond
This immersive game casts players as a savvy urbanite tasked with the resurrection of the last Ghost Bikes, ethereal messengers who traverse the realms of the living and the deceased.
With a storyline that pedals through both worlds, "Ghost Bike" is poised to captivate gamers with its blend of modern urban environments and otherworldly challenges.
The game's narrative revolves around the restoration of a dilapidated Ghost Bike, a once-proud symbol of spectral couriers.
Players must challenge and defeat ghosts in adrenaline-fueled contests to regain lost Ghost power, essential for the bike's repair and the ultimate journey into the afterlife. The goal is not just to navigate the hereafter but to bring back the essence of biking to Wheel World.
Gamers will explore a richly stylized world at their leisure, finding bike parts, customizing their rides, and competing in a gamut of cycling challenges accompanied by a pulsing original soundtrack from the acclaimed music label Italians Do It Better.
As for the creators, Messhof is steered by the visionary duo Mark Essen and Kristy Norindr. Since its inception in 2013, the Venice, California-based studio has become known for pushing the envelope of video game artistry and storytelling.
With "Ghost Bike," Messhof promises another innovative title to their portfolio, where players can immerse themselves in diverse biking cultures and spirited escapades.
While the release date for Steam and Xbox remains unannounced, the anticipation for "Ghost Bike" continues to grow among gaming and cycling enthusiasts alike.
