In Ghost Trick, you play as a ghost named Sissel, who can switch between the worlds of the living and the dead, a trick they use to save lives. Much of the gameplay focuses on Sissel’s possessive power, where you can relive the last four minutes of one’s life and do your best to make sure events don’t go as planned. Doing so will prevent the person from dying.
