Ms. Director is a charismatic hybrid of comedy, film noir, and horror—filled with wonderful characters and an engaging story. There are few games that get me this genuinely invested. 5/5.
A downloadable game for Windows
The year is 1937, and actress Patricia Dahl has found herself struggling in a film industry that's under new, tighter restrictions. Left high and dry in this film role drought, her last hope is a shady audition at an old mansion outside of town.
However, soon after her arrival, it becomes clear the director never had any intent of letting her leave alive.
Only with the help of the ghosts of the director's past victims can Patricia escape, and only with her help can the spirits finally pass on to the next life.
Ms.Director is a RPGmaker horror puzzle game heavily inspired by 1930s hollywood, film noir, and paranormal fiction. It doesnt take itself too seriously, and there's plenty of light moments and nonsense inbetween running for your life, avoiding falling victim to one of the director's traps, or trying to figure out where you saw that last thing you needed for a puzzle.
-A massive mansion to get lost in
-8 ghosts to find and help cross over
-5 different endings
-1 detective ghost that won't leave you alone
-Far too many really stupid jokes.
This game features swearing, alcohol and tobacco consumption, mature themes, light blood/gore, and death. Reccomended for mature audiences.

Hey, I'm enjoying the game a lot so far! I'm close to two hours in, but I'm stuck. I'm pretty sure I've checked everything I can. I've helped the nurse remember who she is and also summoned the maid ghost. If you could give any hint or a push in the right direction, that would be great. I'd love to finish it!
Did you finish helping the ghost in the parlor that knows Patty? She's in the hallway between the downstairs and the upstairs on the right side.
No I haven't. I'm supposed to find out how she died, but I haven't found any clues.
If you've got the portrait ghost available you could go ask her for a nudge in the right direction
If not, maybe try and find where the director might've written down stuff about our friend in the parlor. Maybe that'll help you figure out where to look for clues?
You mean the planner, right? All it talks about is the nurse when I choose to read it again, even though I told the nurse what I found.
Edit: I decided to reload and talk to the parlor ghost before the nurse. I was able to find the clues from the planner this time. I think I might've been locked out of finding info since I helped the nurse first.
