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.

Weather its bugs and lacklustre stealth, and Ghost of a Tale is a quietly ravishing potted epic with a serious subtext.

Ghost of a Tale is a gorgeous, fun adventure that can occasionally be bogged down by frustrating and repetitive mechanics and it's come a long way since entering Early Access in 2016. It doesn't quite fill the stealth game hole that Thief left me with, but I hope we haven't seen the last of Tilo.

Ghost of a Tale is a game created as a great labyrinthine dungeon, puzzles, traps, stealth, and a charismatic protagonist in a macabre and gray medieval world. SeithCG's first job is reminiscent of classic adventures, but it also needs better optimization, technical polishing and several better decisions.

A gorgeous looking stealth with some rpg elements and too many mechanic semplifications. Worth a try, if you're searching something simple.
