Ghost of A Tale

Play As A Stealthy Mouse

Amongst Microsoft's many Gamescom announcements hides a little mouse.

You can check out the gameplay trailer for Ghost of a Tale below, which features a highly detailed mouse, sneaking his way through underground caverns taking on enemies like giant rats and crabs. It recalls the darker anthropomorphic animal tales of The Secret of NIMH, or Brian Jacques' Redwall series of books, which featured anthropomorphic animals fighting and participating wars in a medieval setting.

The game is headed to PC and Xbox One in 2015.

  • Looks interesting so far. As Kyle pointed out, it brought back some memories of the Redwall books that I had the pleasure of reading back in my youth as I was getting into sci-fi/fantasy novels seeing Tilo (mouse) avoiding the rat guards and fleeing from the crab at the end. Shame that it will not be out on the PS4 (since I do not own a Xbox One or a high-end gaming PC), but perhaps I can try it out next year if I end up investing into a good gaming PC.
  • Ah, I like the tale/tail twist of sorts. This makes my South Park self yearn for an Adventures of Lemmiwinks game.

  • It's a neat perspective because many things are threatening to a mouse. Looks cool.

  • This game looks tighter than bark on a tree! Definitely getting this when it comes out.

  • Take my money.

  • It's sad that there is not a PS4 release for this game but at least I can grab it on PC, I don't know if I'll ever play it but I like the style this is for sure !

  • Looks like some fo' real ***, the kind of *** that I can dig. EDIT: What the heck GI!? S h i z is not a curse word!
  • This game looks great. I cant wait to try it out.

  • As a Redwall fan, my dreams are finally realized.
  • Wow! Take my money!!

  • saw this game on crowd funding website (indiegogo?) like a year and a half ago. Been wondering what's up with it. looks like the combat has been replaced with some stealth mechanics. The earlier video had some Dark Souls looking combat mechanics that looked interesting. Developer was an animator on some Pixar films if I remember correctly.

  • Hmmm, this does have a Secret of NIMH kinda feel. Always liked Mice ^^

  • Looks beautiful, pity I'll never get to try it.

  • I backed this on IndieGoGo a long time ago. It looked great then, it looks even better now.

  • Maybe a little Mouse Guard, as well? I like at the end of the video, he's in heavy plate armor, but armed with a lute! Hey crab, listen to my song!
