Embedded into the second episode of "The Krautfunding Show" from Application Systems Heidelberg we'll be calling the live ghost hunting every 20 minutes, bringing updates from the state-of-spook, interviewing the hunters and will definitely be experiencing some frightening moments.

Check out - a first inspectation of the building.

Also on site is a team of German TV "ZDF neo" show "Pixelmacher"

shooting footage from the event.

We have prepared a little clip showcasing games in relation to our GhostControl Inc like Theme Hospital, X-Com and Ghostbusters. Our show-host Volker Ritzhaupt, CEO of Application Systems Heidelberg, will talk to other developers running exciting kickstarter-projects between the ghost hunting slots, one of them being American McGee with OZombie.

Last but not least we want to comment onto the last hours of our kickstarter and try to get one or two additional stretchgoals.

A news-post about this would be awesome and highly appreciated!
