Beta Has Begun
Ghost Song Public Beta coming to Steam soon!
Ghost Song Beta

Hey guys. Just a quick recap and update. First of all, check out this image:



As you can see, I've signed up my Steam infos, downloaded the SDK, read some of the relevant documentation, and the game is ready to be distributed via Steam keys! Simple and clean. I'm excited about this -- There's something really satisfying about seeing your own game on Steam!

The game will be available, for now, on Windows machines only and it's highly recommended you have an Xbox 360 or Xbox One gamepad. These are the gamepads the game is being developed on and for. Other controllers that emulate these may also work, and while it's technically possible to play on the keyboard, it's not optimal at all due to the number of buttons in use.

The build will be available to backers who have backed at the $50 level or higher. In retrospect I wish I had lowered this number, but I have to stick by what I established or else it'd be unfair to all of the backers who did back that much. If you are eager to check out the game as soon as possible, it's still possible to back the game by going to the website[www.ghostsonggame.com], and clicking the "back by paypal" option. If you don't want to do this or don't think it's worth it, that's completely cool too, and I hope you consider buying the final game for $15 when it comes out sometime next year!

Press

In addition to the "beta tier" backers, some testers and press will be invited to receive keys on an individual basis. If you have a youtube channel or a blog or otherwise work for a gaming related website and want to cover the game, email me at twotimingpete@gmail.com with your inquiry. You don't need to have a million views, I'm grateful people are out there covering games and doing videos and am taking a very liberal stance on this matter.

The Roundup

Here's a recap of some of the stuff I've been doing, as usual, in gif form! Please note that gifs run at lower framerates than the game itself -- The game runs at 60 fps on most decently modern desktops (no specific specs yet, don't have a broad enough sample pool).

Since this game is so frequently marketed via gifs, I present to you the world's first-ever (maybe) straight to gif trailer.

This looks promising, such a nostalgic feel to it too!! I love those isolated puzzle/platformer games!!

If i might make a suggestion a dedicated toggle walk button would be amazing for just enjoying the dark moody scenery and allow it to were we can use certian abilities differently while walking. game looks incredible by the way.
