    Following a successful Indiegogo campaign and nearly five years in development, with a lot of the time spent in Early Access, Ghost of a Tale - an action RPG/stealth game with rodents - has just been released on Steam. To quote,

    [​IMG]

    Ghost of a Tale is an action-RPG game in which you play as Tilo, a mouse and minstrel caught up in a perilous adventure. The game takes place in a medieval world populated only by animals, and puts an emphasis on immersion and exploration. It features stealth elements, disguises, conversations with allies and enemies, and quests.

    You’ll be able to explore the secrets of Dwindling Heights Keep and navigate its dangers. Tilo is not much of a fighter, so stealth and nimbleness are your allies when confronted with enemies twice your size. Talk to the characters you meet and leave no stone unturned in your quest to find Merra, your true love…​

    Naturally, calling it an "action RPG [game]" might be stretching it somewhat, since the "RPG" part is limited to some basic stat unlocks and inventory management, but that has never stopped anyone from posting news about much more questionable things here. At the very least, it is charming as hell and looks like a good enough stealth game. Spreading of rodent agenda is an added bonus on top.

    You can get it on Steam, 10% off for the first week, or on GOG.

    FWIW, I checked it briefly when it was in early access and played for some 3 hours, I don't remember the controls being bad on KBM.

    Saw some EA reviews praise the game but shit on the optimization. Now with the release I see some neg reviews saying that it's still optimized like garbage. What's your experience with it like, Darth Roxor.

    I'll report when I play this some more, only gave it a start up to see if it launches, but there was a weird hiccup there already. We'll see.

    For all the doom and gloom around crowdfunding, Indiegogo has blessed us with some fine RPGs

    Hmm that actually looks lovely in terms of visuals and the reviews are absolutely stellar. 96% is a rare sight.

    Was going to make some snide remark about Infinitron really fishing for news stories, then I realized it was a Darth Roxor post.

    Bubbles did a news-post once. A couple of weeks later he was gone. Don't go Roxor.

    I already did.
    :takemymoney:

    Love the concept. Stealth gameplay as a mouse? Environmental puzzles to take out enemies? I'm sold.

    Gimme fewer 50+ hour long CRPGs with endless feature lists and all of them shit, and more games with simple but fun gameplay to just jump in and play.
    I have pretty much given up on waiting for the "Eierlegende Wollmilchsau" of CRPGs.

    In such case you might want to try this if you haven't already. Is on GOG too.

    Yeah, I heard of it.
    There's no shortage of pretty 2D platformers out there, dunno what's so special about that one.

    It nails a helluva lot of things in a very synergistic manner - visuals, soundtrack, atmosphere, movement-centric gameplay, etc.
    All I know is that it hit me hard and I don't even like platformers.

    No GOG link in the news post? :decline: of Darth Roxor

    Well played, Roxor, well played...

    The game itself is looking good, I have been looking forward to it for a while now.

    Edited... without leaving a trace. You're already getting into the spirit of the stealth genre.
