Ghost of a Tale is an adventure of epic proportions that despite the development difficulties and the small budget, stands out, exactly like its small protagonist, with courage towards the challenges and the impossible.

Ghost of a Tale is a triumph of storytelling. It's complex narrative and stunning character writing bump this mechanically successful game to the category of a hidden gem.

Ghost of a Tale is an interesting world full of lore that begs to be explored despite the few design choices that keep it from becoming the greatness that it has potential for.

The wondrous Dwindling Heights is well designed and gives Tilo plenty of opportunities to use his mousey avoidance skills and disguises to help characters. Although there is occasionally too much backtracking, Ghost of a Tale holds a memorable journey in its tiny paws.

Great debut for SeithCG. Stealth mechanic is far from being great, but stunning visuals and smart level design is what really involves you into the beautifully grim world of Ghost of a Tale.

Ghost of a Tale is heavily influenced by the Souls series, and one would wonder why? It definitely suffers from tons of issues and technical difficulties, and unless you are a hardocre Stealth fan, you'll probably have a hard time enjoying its beautiful (but full of technical issues) visuals and appealing (but full of cliches) story.

A Ghost of a Tale is a solid vision, and done justice given its the development constraints.

It is unfortunate that a game with so many qualities provides a frustrating experience because of technical problems. Despite the limitations, Ghost of a Tale is good and can be much better after a few patches.

Ghost of a Tale is just a beautiful dream – flawed. Superb characters, cool story and pretty graphics fall under the spell of clunky gameplay. It would be good if the world was big, open and inviting or if the game had 50% les quests and a shorter story. Tilo’s adventure is more of a movie material than a game – it lacks the input of experienced developers.

Ghost of a Tale is a game made with love and for lovers of beautiful things. The principles are quite generic (we look for keys, which open doors that unlock new possibilities...), but they are articulated with care and intelligence. If you like to think and play with elegance while having a good time, here is a title that should be played. Ghost of a tale is well worth it. Just to encourage the creation of other games of this caliber. The animators of the cinema get along well with video games !
