The year is 201X. A small neighborhood in Owl Creek is suddenly filled with ghosts. A bunch of teenagers gather up to fight these ghosts with weapons they can find from their homes. They do also receive some assistance from the spirits of their ancestors during their suburban adventures and with their help they also find out that something even more evil seems to be brewing up. Phantasmaburbia is a top-down RPG adventure game, resembling very much classic JRPGs, without random fights and lacking side quests.
