It's your job to rent out a haunted house before your tyrannical boss has you fired!
It's an interactive novel where your choices control the story. For example, when your tenants, who haven't slept in days due to bone-chilling whispers emanating from the walls, ask to break their lease, do you:
A) Let them transfer their lease to another property?
B) Allow them to break the lease, but keep their security deposit?
C) Insist on sticking to the terms of the lease?
D) Boldly investigate, like all the victims in bad horror films?
How will you screw over your tenants? Will you ignore inconvenient supernatural phenomena, or use them to drum up publicity? How will you deal with ghost hunters, squatters, and celebrity tenants? Will you emerge as the top agent? Stage an office coup? Or will you become a permanent resident of 57 Crowther Terrace?
(This game used to be called "Eerie Estate Agent," before we changed the name.

Ratings and Reviews
I remember the first 'choice of' game I played was quite dumb a few years ago. All the options seemed to be fairly useless and didn't change/or progress the story at all. It was mostly annoying because these stories have a decided future no matter what decision or choice you make. Not to mention most of the choices just don't seem...human. Like why the friz would someone continue selling a house if they know it's haunted and causing ruin to everyone's lives?! Anyway I did like the slight humor in some parts. It really psyched me up. Otherwise the main character isn't likeable, the story lacks depth (previous occupants and why the house wants to eat people maybe?!) I would probably pay for a sequel with a better main character and a deeper far more interesting story!
It's too well written and has too few choices
Yes, that's honestly what my complaint is. In this game, you play a snide and stressed out real estate agent. The first problem is that the thing is written so well that it can easily stress out the player, but what's worse is that the game already has your personality written to be a snide, dishonest, stressed out real estate agent who appears to only care about saving his spot at what he knows is a terrible job.
Never is there an option presented to simply refuse to allow people into the house once you confirm that its haunted, and personally try to remove the spirits. Your only goal is to trick people into that house while getting money out of them.
Perhaps I simply missed crucial choices, but this was my impression after a few play throughs.
I don't know why some people have said that this story is so lame. I have played many CoG games and this is absolutely one of the best. The story is endlessly entertaining. The best part: it's totally free. You can buy the upgrade to eliminate the ads and lose the wait time between games, but you don't need to. The ads are mostly small banners on the bottom of the screen that I barely noticed and it's only a 20 minute wait between games. I highly recommend this game to everyone. You will love it!
