Phantasm is a 4-player team-based online PVP psychological horror where the Observer plays as a killer haunting down players and the Gatekeepers play as survivors trying to escape. The Observer can become different phantasmic entities (characters of fear) such as ghosts and demons to catch and kill. Gatekeepers will use strategic teamwork to upload the host-killing virus to Observer's support machines while avoiding being caught.

For Observer, you can use your phantasmic ability to switch between human form and different ghosts to set up jumpscares on an off guard player and use your skills playing each phantasmic character to get your hands dirty with blood from the chase and kill.

For Gatekeepers, you can use your parkour skills to outrun the killer, hide in corners and shadows and work collectively with your team to kill the Observer by uploading the virus that destroys support machines.
