<span class="bold">Ghost of a Tale</span>, a gritty fantasy adventure about a little mouse facing big trouble, now in development, DRM-free on with a 10% launch discount.

They say that history is written by the victors but sometimes the biggest truths are hidden behind a Ghost of a Tale. In this medieval world of animals, where the Mice have been marginalized by the vindictive Rats, Tilo's search for his beloved will accidentally throw him in harm's way. The little mouse minstrel is not much of a fighter, but cunning, guile, and nimbleness are forces to be reckoned with and Tilo wields them as expertly as he does his trusty lute.
Developers SeithCG are equally small in numbers and the community's input is helping them shape this endearing action/RPG into something truly special. The core stealth, exploration, and conversation mechanics are pretty much in place, but the flow of the story and exploration is still being tampered with by the team.
You can keep track of their progress through their official blog at

Play your lute through the spooky halls of Dwindling Heights Keep as you struggle to escape your own <span class="bold">Ghost of a Tale</span>, DRM-free on

I have taken a closer look into this potential little gem in development. It's a true indie title started by a former supervising animator in the movie industry. It campaigned at, raising 48,700 EUR. It's amazing what has already been achieved with this amount of money and I think it's well worth supporting this title.

Also honourable, the dev's statement in the original funding campaign:
The game won't be burdened by any DRM. If a person decides to enjoy the game without acknowledging the efforts that went into creating it, there's nothing I can do about it. But somehow hindering honest players' experience does not strike me as a viable solution.
Hopefully Early Access / In Development phase goes well and fairly helps funding further development.
I'm thinking of buying it myself, even if it puts a little stain on my purse.

Ghost of a Tale is leaving In Development on 13 March.

So here it is, after almost five years of learning how to create a game from scratch: the final version of Ghost of a Tale will be released for Windows PC on the 13th of March.

It will be available for download on Steam, GOG and Humble Bundle at the price of $24.99. There are no plans for physical release yet (although we would love to eventually have one).

(Note that the game will remain at $19.99 for the next two weeks, until it’s out of early access)
Price increase will go into effect at launch, so keep that in mind if you were planning on getting it near to release. I also recommend clicking on that link to see for yourself how obscenely pretty the game has gotten.

I guess I'll wait for a sale then. The game looks fantastic, but I refuse to buy early access games on principle, even if they're about to be fully released the next day.
It is a fabulous looking game, and plays well too. Of the few games I have pre-ordered, this is the only one which is worth getting now or even at all. Well recommended and gals to see it finally being finished.
Last bump. The game is getting released in an hour:
Awesome :)
Wow ... where's the full release?

I'm waiting as well. It isn't up on Steam yet either, so he must have misjudged the release time. Shouldn't be long though.
Can't wait to play this, possibly the cutest game of the year.
Thanks for bumping the thread with a heads up on the release. Just bought it.
just decided to pick this up. looks really cool.
