Does Mumbo Jumbo plan on putting Ghostwriting on Steam, I have all the other games so far and would love to be able to play this one to!
I have no idea, unfortunately… hopefully they will.
I have a 7th game listed, called Midnight Mysteries : Possession, does this exist?
Hi Pete, thanks for your question.
On MumboJumbo’s Wikipedia page there’s mention of a 7th Midnight Mysteries game, Possession.
But I’ve not actually seen it for sale anywhere online. So, as far as I can tell it doesn’t exist (for the moment, at least).
However, as the last release in this series, Midnight Mysteries 6: Ghostwriting. Was out, back in January 2015. It has been a while since a new Midnight Mysteries was released. Maybe Possession is still in the pipeline?
Where did you see/hear about the 7th game?
If you google MumboJumbo on Wikipedia it lists Possession as the 7th Midnight Mysteries game.
Yep, that’s the only place I’ve seen it too.
