Ghost of a Tale meets funding goal, play your mouse lute!

Ghost of a Tale meets funding goal, play your mouse lute! photo



Ghost of a Tale, the promising game starring a mouse with a LUTE AND A HAT, made its crowdfunding goal of 45.000€ last night. There shall be much rejoicing. 

The game caught attention through its incredible design, carrying the familiar bleakness of titles like Dark Souls, combined with a Tales of the Riverbank animal aesthetic. The result is something that lies between grim and adorable. It also features undead pirate skeleton rats and frogs with little armored breastplates made out of shells. Because this is awesome.

All that remains is for Lionel Gallat to finish the job, with the help of folks he can now pay thanks to this recent success. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed and my foot tapping impatiently. Can't wait to see more of this.

The new retro: Japanese mystery Back In 1995 looks like a PS1 game

Ah, 1995. A good vintage. Earthquakes in Russia and Japan combined to kill nearly 10,000, the New York Times published Ted Kaczynski's manifesto, folks made Harlan Ellison's I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream into a videogam...more
