The game:
"Ghost of a Tale" is a game in which you play as a little mouse on an adventure. Set in a medieval world populated by animals, the story is a small and intimate one. It starts with the little mouse making his way to the Island Of Periclave, which has long been a disputed outpost for the Army of the Rats. But today, it is reputed to be haunted. Of course tales are talking of a fabulous treasure high up in the Tower of Periclave. But it would be folly to try and get there. Even for a mighty warrior. And the little mouse certainly doesn't look like one...

This is a game rewarding the discovery of secrets, reading journals, jumping and running around, finding clues and overall exploration.

"Ghost of a Tale" is not quite at the stage of a mere concept and yet it is only starting development. Footage of a an alpha version can be seen in the accompanying video. The particularity of this project is that it's being developed by just one person. Yet it strives to achieve a visual quality usually seen in big-budget AAA games.

"Ghost of a Tale" needs to your help in order to become a reality! Please go to:

About the developer:
Lionel "Seith" Gallat is a former Dreamworks supervising animator ("The Prince Of Egypt", "The Road to Eldorado", "Spirit", "Sinbad", "SharkTale", "Flushed-Away", etc...), and more recently he directed the animation on Universal Studios' "Despicable Me" and "The Lorax". And he finds it very strange to write about himself in the third person.

lovely, i really like the story-book feel and the character designs, the size difference between the main character and the enemies/environment would surely make combat and exploration feel different, good luck ;)

For some reason I want this to have a dark and difficult gameplay mode similar to Dark Souls. But regardless of that I seriously love the look of this alpha gameplay. I will be keeping my eye on this in the future. I wish you the best of luck in development, I love seeing your assest development on the website. It looks very promising.
