Ghost of a Tale is an action-RPG surrounding a mouse named Tilo. Players are thrown into a treacherous adventure in which they must use stealth and crafty forms of deceit to navigate the dangers of their medieval world.
Keen attention to detail coupled with a methodical approach to quests is the key to success throughout this adventure. Given the feebleness of mice, players will utilize disguises, stealth, and persuasive conversation to come out of their quests in one piece. Exploration is certainly favored over the usual action attributed to RPGs, but that isn’t to say this game isn’t filled with tactical gameplay. It is just usually a safer approach to work conflict out with words when the enemies players will encounter are roughly twice their size. Tilo’s motivations are divulged early on, as he reveals he must start an exploration in search for his lover, Merra. Given this, players are urged to partake in open discussion with every NPC they come by in an effort to leave no stone unturned in the quest to find her.
It’s exciting for many to finally see this game fully released, given its long history beginning as a crowdfunded project. The developers at SeithCG launched an Indiegogo campaign for Ghost of a Tale in 2013, and release their first trailer for the game in 2014. Although the game was originally set to release in 2015, it was instead released in an Early Access version in 2016 before this final release. After years in the making, and the official release date only being announced two weeks ago, it’s safe to say this game comes with heaps of anticipation.
Ghost of a Tale is available now on Steam for $24.99.
