In Ghost of a Tale, you’ll take on the role of Tilo – a mouse and minstral – who lives in a medieval world populated only by animals. You’ll become caught up in a dangerous journey.

Travel to an island that once served as an outpost for an Army of Rats. Discover that it’s now home to rats of the undead variety (and assorted other nasties). There are tales of a great treasure housed in the island’s tower. Your quest is to get there. Your path will be treacherous.

Fortunately for the diminutive Tilo, the game’s focus is on exploration and discovery, and the emphasis is on stealth and agility over combat. Tilo would be no match for the game’s considerably larger enemies.

Developer SeithCG in basically a one-person operation. His name is Lionel Gallat, formerly of Dreamworks (The Prince Of Egypt, The Road to Eldorado, Spirit, Sinbad, SharkTale) and Universal Studios (Despicable Me and The Lorax).

Sayeth Mr. Gallant: Ghost of a Tale was really an opportunity for me to put together everything that interests me from a technical, creative, and visual point of view. To create something that I knew for a fact that — and this is going to sound very silly to you probably — but I knew that if I didn’t do it, nobody would do it. If I didn’t create that, it would just never happen.

Ghost of a Tale is currently available for Windows on both Steam Early Access  and GOG Games in Development. A final release date is TBD.

It’s a dangerous world out there for a little mouse…

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
