While Ghost of a Tale has been in the works for over four years, the time hasn’t been wasted. The game sports some truly brilliant attention to detail in character design, animation, and world construction. Already in early release on Steam, GOG Connect, and Xbox One, it’s an action-RPG set in a fantastical medieval world populated by animals years after being ravaged by an apocalyptic event known as the War of the Green Flame.
The game emphasizes immersion and exploration rather than combat – in fact, fighting isn't an option. Players have to guide Tilo, our mouse and minstrel hero, as he awakens in a cell beneath a rat fortress known as Dwindling Heights Keep. It’s a game where players have to use stealth, agility, disguise, and their wits to get past guards and complete quests.
