Working on Immersive Sim
And I'm surrounded by ghosts. This place here is haunted.
No I'm not crazy, seriously, it's happening, it's real. As real as whatever immersive sim is supposed to be.

Oh yeah, it's PC Gamer article.

To me, the connection "Ghost of a Tale" and "Ghost Story" is too near. Sounds to me like a ripoff - as if they had taken the "Ghost of a Tale" meme for their own.
