It may not be complete and it’ll no doubt be full of bugs, but if you wish to help shape the future of Ghost of a Tale, then the Xbox Game Preview is now giving you that opportunity.
Available right now for £15.99, Ghost of a Tale is an action RPG title set in a world populated only by animals. That means the character you play as is also an animal – a mouse in fact – and it’ll be up to you to squeak with the best of them as you help Tilo escape the clutches of those found in the Dwindling Heights Keep. You’ll also need to learn the fate of Merra, your true love.
To do so you’ll have to explore towers and dungeons, utilising your stealth, agility, disguises and love of music in order to keep safe from many dangers. It won’t be easy though – after all, you’re a mouse and many of the enemies you confront will be double your size. But you know what they say… size doesn’t always matter!
If you wish to get involved in Ghost of a Tale, then you should be heading towards the Xbox Games Store right now. Just remember though, this isn’t the finished product and you should expect issues. But should you be willing to put up with that, then Ghost of a Tale looks a very intriguing prospect.
We’ll have our hands-on thoughts for you real soon.
This game is a work in progress. It may or may not change over time or release as a final product. Purchase only if you are comfortable with the current state of the unfinished game. Ghost of a Tale is an action-RPG adventure, set in a medieval world populated only by animals. You play as Tilo, a courageous minstrel mouse on a perilous quest to escape the jails of Dwindling Heights Keep and discover the fate of his true love Merra. Armed with a mouse’s talent for stealth, agility and disguise – and a love of music – you’ll explore the towers and dungeons of the keep, navigating its dangers and discovering its secrets. Dwindling Heights is a dangerous place for a little mouse, and Tilo’s not much of a fighter. When confronted with enemies twice your size, nimbleness and guile are your allies. Talk to the characters you meet – make enemies and allies – and leave no stone unturned in your quest to find Merra. Please note that the preview version of Ghost of a Tale is presented in English only. The final release will support English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese and more.
