Description official description
Based on the Casper film, the game puts you in the role of the friendly ghost trying to make a friend and a second chance at life instead of scaring everyone away.
The plot centers around the "spoiled, grasping inheritor of Whipstaff Manor" - Carrigan Crittenden. She's after the treasure she thinks is hidden in the walls. Casper will need the help of Dr. James Harvey - therapist to the dead - if he has any hope of succeeding in his adventures.
Casper will also have to deal with his uncles - Stretch, Stinkie, and Fatso, who just love to scare "Fleshies" and thwart Casper's efforts. The gameplay is 3d - and is mostly puzzle solving, with Casper able to take a variety of forms and can manipulate objects.

History [ ]
Not much is known about how Casper came to be a ghost, or how he did end up with the Ghostly Trio. According to the 1995 feature film Casper , he died when contracted pneumonia from playing out in the cold for too long, but so far, that's the only version there is.
Given that Casper is depicted as a ghostly slightly obese little boy, there is a controversy among fans of the series about whether or not he is a dead child. Early Casper cartoons seemed to suggest this, as they portrayed him "living" beside a gravestone. Specifically, the short There's Good Boos To-Night featured Ferdie, a fox befriended by Casper, coming back from the dead as a ghost. Casper's death (as well as the reason why he became friendly) has become disputed since then.
This somewhat macabre premise was later abandoned in favor of the idea that ghosts were merely a type of creature, similar to ghouls, goblins, etc. He was thereafter portrayed with feet and shown to have ghostly parents & became slightly slimmer. In the 1960s and 1970s, the stock answer provided by Harvey Comics in response to those wondering how Casper died was that he was a ghost simply because his parents were already ghosts when they were married.<ref>http://www.tvparty.com/sat67.html</ref>
The 1995 feature film Casper , however, revived the notion that Casper was a deceased human and provided a brief account of his death. According to the film, Casper died from pneumonia. The first direct-to-video film to follow the feature, Casper: A Spirited Beginning , showed Casper's early days as a ghost, not showing how he died and ignoring the story provided in the previous film.
In the original Harveytoons animation, Casper has been seen standing next to a grave inscribed with "Casper", that supports the theory he is indeed a ghost. Originally, stories have shown that his visibility is due to wearing a sheet. In the Casper live movie, this is not shown and it is implied that he is naturally visible to humans as a white creature.
He uses physical makeup in a Harveytoons show where Casper takes care of a pair of kittens, it opens with seeing (or not seeing) him scrubbing himself off in the shower, completely invisible. He becomes visible by putting on something like a white cloth that people traditionally use to masquerade as ghosts. This implies that he is naturally invisible and puts this on so that he can be seen and interact with others.
In spite of this, he is apparently still able to move through solid objects without leaving this behind, so he may be able to extend his ability to move through things to other objects.
Creation and Productions [ ]
Casper Happy (1936)
Casper was created in the late Born April 20, 1915 by Seymour Reit and Joe Oriolo, the former
Casper Upsaid (1937)
Jam Handy’s “Down The Gasoline Trail” (1936)
Pudgy Picks a Fight! (1937)
devising the idea for the character and the latter providing illustrations. Intended initially as the basis for a 1939 children's storybook, there was at first little interest in their idea. When Reit was away on military service during the Second World War before the book was released, Oriolo sold the rights to the book to Paramount Pictures' Famous Studios animation, for which he had occasionally worked.Template:Citation needed
The Friendly Ghost , the first Noveltoon to feature Casper, was released by Paramount in 1945 with a few differences from the book. In the cartoon adaptation, Casper is a cute ghost-child with a New York accent, who prefers making friends with people instead of scaring them (Casper used to scare people but got tired of it all). He runs away from home and goes out to make friends. However, the animals he meets (a rooster, a mole, a cat, a mouse resembling Herman and Katnip, and a group of hens) take one horrified look at him and run off in the other direction. Distraught, Casper unsuccessfully attempts to commit suicide by laying himself down on a railway track before an oncoming train (apparently forgetting that he's already dead) before he meets two little children named Bonnie and Johnny who become his friends. The children's mother at first is frightened of Casper, but later welcomes him into the family and sends him off with her children to town wearing clothes after he wards off a greedy landlord.
Casper appeared in two more subsequent books by Seymour Reit and Joe Oriolo, There's Good Boos To-Night and A Haunting We Will Go . ( There's Good Boos To-Night differs wildly from later Casper cartoons: although Casper trying to find a friend and scaring everyone away before succeeding also occurs in later cartoons, the tone of the cartoon turns dark when a hunter and his dogs appear. Although Casper scares them away, the fox he has befriended is killed, but happily returns as a ghost.)
These were later adapted into Noveltoons before Paramount started a Casper the Friendly Ghost series in 1950, and ran the theatrical releases until the summer of 1959. Nearly every entry in the series was the same: Casper (now slightly thinner than his obese self that first appeared in the earlier cartoons) escapes from the afterlife of a regular ghost because he finds that scaring people can be tiresome year after year, tries to find friends but inadvertently scares almost everyone, and finally finds a (cute little) friend, whom he saves from some sort of fate, leading to his acceptance by those initially scared of him. The cartoon series also boasted a catchy title song which was written by Jerry Livingston and Mack David.Template:Citation needed By 1955, however, composer Winston Sharples composed an entirely new instrumental theme for Casper's cartoons.
Harvey Comics, television and films [ ]
Casper went on to become one of the most famous properties from the Famous Studio. Alfred Harvey , founder and publisher of Harvey Comics began producing Casper comic books in 1952, and in 1959, purchased the rights to the character outright.
After Harvey bought the rights to Casper and many other Famous properties in 1959 (including Herman and Katnip, Little Audrey, and Baby Huey ), they began broadcasting the post-September 1950 theatrical Famous shorts on a television show sponsored by Mattel Toys titled Matty's Funday Funnies on ABC in 1959 which introduced the Barbie doll to the public. The other Famous produced Casper cartoons had already been acquired by television distributor U.M.&M. T.V. Corp. in 1956. U.M.&M. retitled just "A Haunting We Will Go", but miscredited "Featuring Casper The Friendly Ghost" as "Featuring Caspers Friendly Ghost".
New cartoons were created for The New Casper Cartoon Show in 1963, also on ABC. The original Casper cartoons were syndicated under the title Harveytoons in 1962 and ran continuously until the mid-90s. Casper has remained popular in reruns and merchandising, and Hanna-Barbera produced two holiday specials, Casper's First Christmas (which also starred Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Snagglepuss, Quick Draw McGraw, Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy) and Casper's Halloween Special (aka Casper Saves Halloween ), and also the Saturday morning cartoon series Casper and the Angels (an animated takeoff on two live-action hit shows Charlie's Angels & "CHiPS")in the autumn of 1979, all on NBC. Also featured on the NBC version was a big ghost named Hairy Scary (voiced by John Stephenson). None of Casper's original co-stars appeared in the show.
Numerous Casper cartoons were released on home video by Universal Studios (via MCA Inc.), which also adapted the friendly ghost into a live-action feature film entitled Casper in 1995, where he and his wicked uncles, the Ghostly Trio, were done with computer animation. The film constructed a back-story for Casper and is the only time in the series that the question of his death has been addressed. According to the film, Casper was "straight Gang Banging" until he died from pneumonia. Whipstaff Manor appears to represent the historic Schroeppel Mansion in Syracuse, New York, which is a national monument. McFadden seems to be the name the writers used because the actual family named von Schroeppel lost a twelve-year-old son named Casper to drowning in Morristown, New York, who is said to haunt the family's estate in Syracuse. Casper was a name that could be used but not the actual name of the family.
In 1996, Fox created a new Casper series, based on the 1995 feature, that lasted two years. In the late 1990s, two live-action direct-to-video follow-ups to the 1995 film: Casper: A Spirited Beginning and Casper Meets Wendy (which introduced Hilary Duff in her first feature) were made. They were followed by Casper's Haunted Christmas (starring Spooky and Poil from the original comics and animated spin-off of the first movie), and Casper's Scare School , which were done entirely in CGI with no live-action elements. These films are often being regarded as "prequels" to the 1995 feature despite the fact that they heartily contradict the feature and do not appear to even take place in the same (cartoon) continuity.
In 2001, Harvey Entertainment was acquired by Classic Media which continues to license the Harvey properties including Casper.<ref>http://www.allbusiness.com/marketing-advertising/4114775-1.html</ref>
In 2007, MoonScoop Group, in association with Classic Media, TF1 et DQ, produced a TV show of 52 X 12' named ( Casper's Scare School ).
Video Games [ ]
There have been several video games released based on Casper. Two different games for the Super NES. Casper for the 3DO, Sega Saturn, PlayStation, and Game Boy Color. Casper for the Game Boy.

- "Harvey Girls Forever!" has been eyeing for an appearance of Casper in the episode "Scare Bud".
- In Transformice , is an achievement title called "Casper".
Being a ghost, Casper can become invisible and intangible, as well as fly. He is also able to turn other things in close proximity (probably requiring to touch them) intangible as well. He does with the sheet he wears to be seen, and also did it to feed a dog a bone when Casper scared off the cooked chicken that was going to be the watchdog's reward. It is unknown if he is able to turn living things intangible with him.
He has also been seen (such as in Which is Witch ) fading into view to his standard white appearance from being invisible, rather than putting on the sheet. This indicates that he puts on the sheet for visibility, but is also able to turn it invisible to match his natural state. It is unknown if he is able to turn living things invisible too. However, one issue of the comic (1960s) where Casper is speaking to a friend, said that "to become invisible, think nothing."
Casper seems to be able to selectively affect the world. His natural state seems to be to be intangible (along with making his sheet this way) since when he is unaware, things pass right through him. But he is also able to physically affect things, such as moving around things or people.
It is unknown if Casper has mass, he seems to be in sync with the earth's orbit, though not necessarily due to gravity since he is able to fly at will .

Game Pass adding the best Resident Evil, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in January

Share All sharing options for: Game Pass adding the best Resident Evil, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in January
Game Pass subscribers have a hearty January ahead of them, with two big games coming to Microsoft’s game subscription service: Capcom’s eminently replayable Resident Evil 2 remake and Ubisoft’s massive, open-world adventure Assassin’s Creed Valhalla join the lineup this month.
Resident Evil 2 was released in 2019, and it exemplifies the best of Capcom’s work to revitalize its older survival horror games. The game sees dual protagonists Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy responding to the zombie outbreak in Raccoon City, with an interlocking narrative that warrants repeat playthroughs as both characters. In Polygon’s review of the game , we called it “a fresh, expensive-looking game that evokes the best memories of the PlayStation original, while also being something altogether new.”
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla , from 2020, casts players as the warrior Eivor on a grand adventure set against the Viking expansion into England. Valhalla is huge — so big that Ubisoft dialed its ambitions back for last year’s Assassin’s Creed Mirage — with a sprawling narrative that can easily take more than 100 hours to complete. In our review of the game , we called Valhalla an “intriguing story ... about faith, honor, and family” that’s buried inside a “massive, massive world stuffed with combat and side quests.”
Those games will be joined by Hell Let Loose , the World War 2 shooter-RTS that made its debut in 2021 after years of early access. Here’s the full rundown of January’s Xbox and PC Game Pass games for the first half of the month:
- Close to the Sun (cloud, console, and PC) — Jan. 3
- Hell Let Loose (cloud, PC, and Xbox Series X) — Jan. 4
- Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (cloud, console, and PC) — Jan. 9
- Figment (cloud, console, and PC) — Jan. 9
- Super Mega Baseball 4 (cloud, console, and PC) — Jan. 11
- We Happy Few (cloud, console, and PC) — Jan. 11
- Resident Evil 2 (cloud, console, and PC) — Jan. 16
- Those Who Remain (cloud, console, and PC) — Jan. 16
As previously noted, a handful of games will leave the service in January , including Grand Theft Auto 5 , which will complete its third stint on Game Pass later this week.
- Grand Theft Auto 5 (cloud and console) — Jan. 5
- Garden Story (cloud, console, and PC) — Jan. 15
- MotoGP 22 (cloud, console, and PC) — Jan. 15
- Persona 4 Golden (cloud, console, and PC) — Jan. 15
- Persona 3 Portable (cloud, console, and PC) — Jan. 15
Xbox Game Pass costs $10.99 a month, while PC Game Pass costs $9.99 a month. PC Game Pass includes EA Play access, which offers another 70 games on PC. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, at $16.99 per month , gives subscribers access to everything — the PC Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass libraries, EA Play on both console and PC — as well as access to online multiplayer. Xbox Game Pass Core (formerly called Xbox Live Gold) costs $9.99 per month or $59.99 per year.

The Biggest Games Coming in 2024
From dragon's dogma 2 and other early arrivals to big hitters coming later, these are the games to look out for this year..
2023 was heralded as the biggest year in the history of video games to ever video game a game of videos, and as that incoherent word salad would suggest, it was a busy year. That said, 2024 is shaping up to have quite a few big releases to keep you from finishing that massive backlog you piled up last year because you were so busy tormenting Koroks and trying to get to second base with Shadowheart .
Before we get into it, note that video game release dates are about as reliable as weather forecasts at this point so it’s very possible, if not likely, that a few of these get delayed or otherwise moved around. Also, this is by no means a comprehensive list of everything coming out, just a handful of games we thought you’d like to have on your radar – if something you’re excited for didn’t make the cut, it’s nothing personal! If you want a more thorough roundup, every month we put up a new video detailing that month’s upcoming releases, so keep an eye out for that - the January one is already up.
If you’re sitting around checking your enchanted hourglass waiting on that Prince of Persia: Sands of Time remake, good news! Ubisoft whipped up a nice 2.5D Metroidvania to hold you over. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown goes back to the series’ side-scrolling platformer roots, but with some modern twists. That’s it for basically everything released on January 18th.
On January 26th, hot on the heels of last year’s new installments of Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, Tekken enters the fray with its eighth entry, which is putting those new-gen consoles through their paces and really showing what Unreal 5 can do. That’s on PS5, Xbox Series and PC.
That same day, on new- and last-gen, is Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. That’s an expensive way of saying Yakuza 8, though the series has officially rebranded to its Japanese name, kinda like how Dragon Quest was Dragon Warrior in the west for decades before finally making the switch. Anyway, notable Dragon Quest player Ichiban Kasuga returns for another wacky hero’s journey, and this time he’s brought along with semi-pro Pocket Circuit racer and UFO catcher enthusiast Kazuma Kiryu.
As you probably heard by now, the Arkham architects at Rocksteady are ditching the Dark Knight and trying their hand at a co-op looter-shooter starring Task Force X, better known as The Suicide Squad . The Squad’s mission? Kill the Justice League. The name of this game? The Suicide Squad Kills The Justice League. The release date? February 2nd, for new-gen and PC.
That same day, if you missed Persona 3 when it was on PS2 and then on PSP and later PS Vita, well, shame on you, but also good news because it’s been fully rebuilt as a new, modern console RPG, and it’s coming to everything but Switch… which is sad, because Switch is the closest thing we have anymore to a PSP or Vita.
The original Helldivers was a tough-as-nails, top-down co-op twin-stick shooter about zapping aliens on other planets, and the sequel takes the core gameplay loop but reinvents it from a third-person perspective , adding quite a bit of scale and complexity to missions, and wearing its Starship Troopers influence even more proudly on its sleeve. Would you like to know more? Well, it hits PS5 and PC on February 8th.
One game that has been in the works for a quite while is Skull and Bones. What began as a spin-off of Assassin’s Creed Black Flag’s naval combat has been delayed something like seven times. So pardon me if I’m skeptical that this game will actually come out on February 16th, but that’s what Ubisoft is saying this time. That’s on new-gen, PC and Amazon Luna.
On the 29th, Cloud, Tifa, Barrett and company are back, joined by quite a few familiar faces and turned loose in a massive, sprawling open-world and infinitely more detailed recreation of the original FF7’s overworld map, which you can travel around by chocobo or on a segway if you so desire. FF7 remake was an incredibly ambitious start and it sounds like Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is going to be a substantially larger undertaking in all the best ways.
Homeworld 3 is the long overdue follow up to a beloved deep space strategy game released over 20 years ago. On March 8th, this franchise emerges from cryosleep on PC, so here’s hoping it can adapt to life in the 2020s.
On March 20th, one of the great-grandpappies of survival horror gets a new installment. At a glance, Alone in the Dark might seem like another remake along the lines of what Dead Space and Resident Evil did recently, but it’s being framed as a “revival” – which is fitting, given the southern gothic themes. It’s telling a new story, but longtime fans will likely get some deja vu as it’s taking place in Derceto Manor, where the 1992 original was set.
On March 22nd Dragon’s Dogma 2 drops, the feverishly anticipated sequel to Capcom’s criminally underrated open-world action RPG. This has the same kind of extremely vocal fanbase that Demon’s Souls did before FromSoft dropped Dark Souls and it blew up so big it inspired a whole genre. That’s not to say Dragon’s Dogma 2 is the second coming of Dark Souls, but it’ll probably click with Elden Ring fans dying for a big sprawling western fantasy action RPG with crunchy boss fights.
Meanwhile, if you’re ready to commit seppuku because Sony and Sucker Punch have been Shinobi silent regarding another Ghost of Tsushima, Rise of the Ronin might hold you over – and it’ll likely click with antsy Soulsborne fans too. The PS5-exclusive open-world action RPG comes courtesy of Team Ninja, the studio behind last year’s Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, the Nioh games and of course, Ninja Gaiden.
Still on March 22nd, and considerably less punishing than those last two games, there’s Princess Peach Showtime. Mario’s Mushroom Matriarch takes the spotlight in a long-overdue solo adventure of her own. This isn’t a role-playing game in the conventional sense but the whole thing is framed as a stage production, and Peach dons different costumes to play various roles , each with their own abilities. The stages and setpieces will be just that, in a literal theatrical sense. It’ll be nice to see Peach flexing her dramatic range, so here’s hoping it’s a crowd-pleaser. I probably don’t need to tell you that’s exclusively on Switch.
Anyway, if you’re looking for an ass kicking, mark your calendar for August 20th because that’s when the long awaited Black Myth Wukong will finally make its journey westward. Developed by Chinese studio Game Science, this Soulslike pulls from the classic folktale, Journey to the West, which was the original inspiration for Dragon Ball, and was loosely adapted into a video game back in 2010 in Ninja Theory’s Enslaved: Odyssey To The West. Our preview from last year says it’s definitely got some soulsborne DNA, but plays in a way that’s all its own. That’s on new-gen and PC.
Meanwhile, a few weeks and about 38,000 years later, there’s Warhammer 40K: Space Marine 2, which drops September 9th. Gears of War’s muscle-bound dudes in power armor with chainsaw guns copied Warhammer 40K’s homework just a bit, so it was only fair Warhammer did the same. Back in 2011, the original Space Marine was widely praised as a totally solid Gears-like set against the utterly bonkers backdrop of Games Workshop’s tabletop game. Now, a whole middle schooler’s lifetime later, it’s getting a sequel, which looks to take full advantage of new-gen hardware to render massive swarms of tyranids for you to brutally eviscerate in the name of the Emperor.
Continuing the Warhammer 40K naming convention of Aggressive Word plus Type of Melee Weapon followed by a number, there’s also Hellblade 2: Senua’s Saga. The follow up to Ninja Theory’s 2017 sleeper hit, Senua’s Sacrifice, Senua’s Saga looks to be raising the bar in every possible way while maintaining its blend of dark fantasy and psychological horror, with a heavy emphasis on the psychology. That’s on Xbox Series and PC but we do not have a release date quite yet.
Also on Xbox Series and PC with no hard release date is STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl, though that does currently have a release window of sometime in the first quarter of 2024. Considering this game’s development was put on hold so members of the Ukrainian team could step away from their desks to defend their country from invading Russian forces, I don’t think anyone will fault the studio for the long wait, or get mad if the release gets delayed further. It looks like a massively ambitious game and the original is a modern classic, though maybe not exactly modern anymore. In the time since the last STALKER game was released, the actual Chernobyl exclusion zone has become a tourist destination.
From this point onward, the rest of the games listed don’t have release dates or release windows at all - it’s the wild west! Speaking of which, one of these games is Star Wars Outlaws, and it's wild it took this long to get a game that can be described as “GTA but with speeder bikes and blasters and Jabba the Hutt.” From the looks of things, that’s what Outlaws is shaping up to be – though, to be precise, it’s a Ubisoft game so a more apt comparison might be Watch Dogs with Womp Rats. I’m definitely not complaining at the prospect of an open-world Star Wars game that focuses on the scum and villainy of that galaxy far, far away. I will, however, complain if Bossk and Dengar and Zuckuss don’t show up. Boba Fett’s fine.
Supergiant Games has been chugging along for over a decade regularly putting out colorful, deceptively complex games that have consistently pleased critics and fans alike, and Hades was met with such a unanimously positive reception you can’t blame them for making Hades 2.
For any Persona fans rolling their eyes at all the casual newcomers flocking to Persona 3 Reload, I have just the thing, which you probably already know about: Metaphor: ReFantazio, a brand new RPG in a new universe from a ton of people behind the Shin Megami Tensei / Persona series,
If you want a JRPG that doesn’t go quite as hard in the paint or the fonts in the graphic design department, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door remakes the beloved Gamecube game for Switch, which should be a nice follow-up to the Super Mario RPG remake we got in 2023.
Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2 is yet another long awaited sequel that became even more long-awaited after the decision was made to go back to square one in the hands of a new developer, but the good news is that new developer is The Chinese Room, the studio behind the Amnesia games and Dear Esther.
If the words “Seiken Densetsu” means anything to you, you’re probably well aware of Visions of Mana, but if you’re not it’s the first mainline entry in Square Enix’s beloved ‘Mana’ action-RPG series that got its start as a final fantasy spinoff on the original Game Boy.
There’s no shortage of big, fat fantasy RPGs being cooked up by the various Xbox Game Studios, and Avowed looks like a nice amuse-bouche for anybody licking their chops for Fable or Skyrim 2: Dragon Born Again AKA The Elder Scrolls 6.
This list isn’t alphabetical but Zenless Zone Zero has too many Zs in the title to not put it last. It’s the next free-to-play action RPG from the Genshin Impact and Honkai Star Rail team, and this one has a super stylish quasi-futuristic urban setting, and is coming to mobile and PC, and probably console at a later date.
Speaking of which, Genshin is expected to hit Switch at some point - and there’s the very good possibility that Nintendo will drop a new console entirely, whether that’s a Super Switch, a Switch-U or something else entirely, which of course will have its share of new games at launch and thereafter.
Would you buy a Nintendo Switch 2 in 2024?
There’s a ton of stuff we haven’t covered: Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree DLC is likely to be a substantial expansion to an already massive game, there are rumblings about the next Doom game, possibly a prequel, and then other long-awaited sequels like Metroid Prime 4 and Dragon Age: The Dread Wolf Rises, to name a few.
Let us know in the comments if we’ve missed a game you’re looking forward to in 2024.
