You are dead. In life, you were a warrior who took many other lives. But now, your own life at its end, you find yourself at the River Styx with none other than Death himself as your guide. He tells you that you have a choice. You can let your soul be carried off to Hell, where it will suffer endless torment for an eternity, or you can attempt to be accepted at the Gate of Judgment, proving yourself worthy of being reborn as a human. Of course, the path there is long and wrought with peril, and only through your actions as you journey through the netherworld can you change your own fate.

Hungry Ghosts is a first-person adventure game with light action elements. The player controls the recently-deceased warrior as he travels through the afterlife searching for the Gate of Judgment. Many objects can be examined, collected, or interacted with in various ways. The protagonist begins the game with a spear and an empty crossbow, but can acquire and use a number of other weapons and items throughout the game. It is necessary to collect so-called Soul Fragments by helping out other lost souls, which will allow the player to progress through the next gate.

Every action in the game has an effect on the protagonist's fate. Simply reaching the Gate of Judgment is not enough to redeem him; the player will be judged accordingly on the actions they took to get there. For example, break open too many barrels and hoard every possible item, and the protagonist will be judged a glutton. In order to be judged fit for rebirth, the player must be judicious in their choices; take only what is necessary, help out others wherever possible, and do not cause undue suffering...
