After five years of development, as well as a year and a half in Steam Early Access, the stylish action-RPG Ghost of a Tale has now finally released on PC. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are in the works as well, though there is currently no official release date set just yet. According to the developers, the best estimate they can offer is "later this year" as they're still getting prepared for the whole certification process.

As for the gameplay itself, Ghost of a Tale is primarily focused on immersion and exploration. Since you are a tiny little mouse you will need to use stealth and disguises in order to avoid much larger enemies, as well as rely on your environment for both safety and a means of fighting back. After all, a giant rat might be able to chew your face off in a single bite, but that tends to be quite hard to do when an entire rack of barrels collapses on its head!

While Ghost of a Tale definitely has plenty of action-RPG elements, it is important to mention that it is not a combat focused game. You are a part of a world that is much larger and scarier than you will ever possibly be, so even trying to fight some your enemies is just going to result in a very quick trip to most recent checkpoint. Instead, treat it more like a stealth/exploration game and you'll find your ventures significantly more successful as well as enjoyable.

If you're wondering what all of this might look like in action, allow me to share with you the recently posted launch trailer. It'll give you a pretty good idea of what to expect from Ghost of a Tale and what exactly I'm blabbering about. Have a gander:

If you prefer the written word, however, you can learn more about A Ghost of a Tale by visiting either the official website or Steam. And finally, I'll leave you with a couple of cutesy images, just for good measure. Don't forget to click on them for the bigger version as well!
