Elena the friendly ghost
In Whispering Willows, you play as a young girl named Elena as she makes her way around Willows Mansion. Elena is no ordinary girl, though, as she can project her spirit outside of her body. She uses her ability around the mansion to help ghosts that are stuck on the grounds to make their way to the 'other side'. That being said there are a few evil spirits that lurk within the mansion and are out to get Elena and the good-spirited ghosts (no pun intended).
Can you use Elena's physical and spiritual body to solve puzzles and find her missing father? Find out this week when Whispering Willows comes to Xbox One on August 28.
