Ghost of a Tale is out on PC!!

Hey all! This is just a quick update to announce that Ghost of a Tale is finally out!!! After five years of hard work now is the time to see if it was all worth it… :) Here’s the release trailer: https://youtu.be/tigso6GJtsY So far the feedback is overwhelmingly great, with about 96% of positive reviews on Steam! Speaking of reviews, we got our first official one! It's on French site Gamekult and it's an 8 out of 10! Let's hope this marks the beginning of a good trend. And now it's back to listening to players'...

PC Release in 2 Weeks!

Welcome everyone to what is one of the last pre-release updates for Ghost of a Tale! Before we start, you’ll notice in this update I sprinkled quite a few more screenshots than usual (most of which were created by the awesome Nautilus using the photo mode included in the game). Because now is the time to not only spread the word about Ghost of a Tale, but also SHOW that this little game is actually worth their attention!! :) Release date So here it is, after almost five years of learning how to...

New location! New quests!

Welcome all! Today I'm very happy because I get to talk about new content added to the early access! :) Indeed we’ve opened up a new location: the Northern Slopes (along with the old armory) but we also worked a lot on the existing Far Tower area. Not only is the location much prettier to look at (thanks to many new assets) but there’s actually stuff to do there now! Here's a lighting test for the time-of-day system which is recorded in the new area: https://youtu.be/mnoB4tLc5T8 We’ve added 5 new quests to the existing...

Hello all! In this special update I would like to officially welcome our new Xbox One players! Ghost of a Tale has indeed landed on the Xbox One store (in the Game Preview section) today, Friday June 30th. https://youtu.be/gZRpi3s6m24 Note: if you backed the game during the Indiegogo campaign and you would like to receive an Xbox One token then please send us a message at: contact@ghostofatale.com from the email address you used during the campaign (that's important!).

Xbox One Game Preview

Hi everyone. This is just a quick update to confirm that the game has passed Microsoft’s certification! The Game Preview version of Ghost of a Tale will arrive on the Xbox One on June 30th. It was a long journey to get there and it’s still far from over. But if you didn’t have a PC to play the game on and you happen to have an Xbox One, you should be a happy camper at the end of the month. :) Stay tuned for more development news to come!...

Catacombs Raider

Welcome to this new Ghost of a Tale update! :) We've been working on so many things over the last few weeks that I have a hard time keeping track! But just to summarize (in no particular order): new quests, dialogs for new NPCs (where Paul is doing a bang-up job as usual), optimizations, whiteboxing, Xbox One certification and new locations! And speaking of new places you’ll get to explore in the game...

Interviews en Français!

Hi all! This is going to be a very short update dealing with recent press coverage and the Xbox One. A new development update will be coming along very soon (more on this at the end)! Xbox One First I want to say that the so-called bug regarding the Xbox One memory leak turned out to be actually coming from our side. That's what's called: "user error". Needless to say we all felt a bit silly about it but Unity has been very gracious in providing help to pinpoint the issue. And...

Rocks and Water!

Welcome to this new Ghost of a Tale development update! This is a rather sizeable one to make up for last month because we were so busy preparing for GDC. So think of it as a double-issue! :) GDC Adventures! Paul single handedly took care of the Ghost of a Tale booth like a champ! He had to stand and talk for three days straight but he had a grand old time overall. And it seems everyone who played the game really liked it! So it was an excellent experience and Paul even...

GDC 2017

Hello all! Yes, Ghost of a Tale will be present next week at GDC! Paul will be there in person with a build of the game featuring a new forested area for you to explore! I'm starting to be happy with the overall result. Still got to create a few more assets to nail the look but it's definitely getting there. Also from the forest you can have a good look at Dwindling Heights' tower peeking through the canopy. So feel free to come by and say hi to Paul! He’ll be at...
