In 2012, a veteran of animation, Lionel Gallat, chose to take a break to focus on his first adventure in the world of video games. With a successful experience at DreamWorks and Universal Studios (The Prince of Egypt, Eldorado Road, Shark Gang, Me, ugly and bad, The Lorax …), the artist decides to work a year on his project before launching a crowdfunding campaign in 2013. At the end of it, it is nearly 48 700 euros are collected, allowing the creator to continue his work. After several years of hard work, the impressive Ghost of a Tale download is available in early access on Steam, with nearly a quarter of the game available. And that is saying that the leg of the experienced facilitator is palpable …
Drawing inspiration from the classics of literature, film and video games, Ghost of a Tale narrates the adventures of Tilo, a little mouse who finds herself trapped in an obscure prison. For our hero, no question of croting in this sordid place a second more! His half has disappeared and he will have to walk around the place to find clues allowing him to find his beautiful. During his journey, the small mammal will meet many anthropomorphic characters (frogs, spiders, crabs, magpies, hawks …) and live an astonishing adventure.
Mix of exploration, infiltration and puzzles, the game offers a cocktail that will delight budding adventurers. It all starts when Tilo, then a prisoner in his cell, escapes. At the corner of a corridor, he meets Kerold, a pirate captain chained and then understands that he will have to trick to find the one he loves. The problem is that his wanderings are not going to be easy. Indeed, a colony of evil rats controls the place and does not hesitate to eliminate all the intruders who dare to tread its territory. To avoid this unfortunate fate, the little mouse will have to sneak in, through the different areas, to retrieve important items (including keys to open locked doors) and carry out its rescue operation. Infiltration holds a prominent place in Ghost of a Tale. The enemies are much more alive and strong than our hero and it is better not to rub them.
When approaching an enemy, Tilo must slow down (a filter, materializing the danger, appears on the screen) and ensure that the gauge does not reach the critical threshold. Depending on the location, the rats react in different ways. Some stitch a nap, while others patrol and patrol without stopping. It can even happen that a rat is in a fixed position and that a parry must be found to dislodge it (by knocking a barrel over his head or by diverting his attention by breaking a bottle on the ground). We must analyze each movement to avoid getting caught. When Tilo is detected by the enemy, it only remains for him to leave to find a place (barrel, chest, cupboard …) to hide or to leave enough to sow his assailant! In Ghost of a Tale, do not expect to wander in all peace of mind, the rats are in number and they can be quite tough, especially when they attack several.
Along with infiltration, exploration plays an important role in the search for the field mouse. Tilo has to search every place to find food – a practical way to recover – or items for his various quests. For example, nothing like a pirate costume to deceive the vigilance of Kerold, the poor frog locked in a jail. For now, these changes in appearance have not delivered all their secrets but we can expect quite extensive possibilities in the final game. As you progress, the little mouse’s adventure gains in depth. Thus, some areas require the player to bring an oil lamp to access the dark and gloomy places. It will also be necessary to find a parade to resist certain enemies and dangers, starting with the leeches or the pinkish vapors escaping from the sewers. The world we discover is hostile and the rodent is easy prey. Fortunately, he can rely on his quickness to hide while his small size allows him to sneak into tight places. And of course, as with any adventure game that respects itself, maps are used to identify and clues are scattered here and there to solve the different puzzles. Ghost of a Tale, thanks to its intuitiveness and accessibility (even if it is necessary to be concentrated to get rid of certain well-guarded areas), definitely promises a great adventure.
You’ll understand by discovering the screenshots or videos of this game, Ghost of a Tale has great graphics. Thanks to the Unity engine, Lionel Gallat and his collaborators managed to create a coherent medieval world, but also characters, Tilo in the lead, very endearing. This is proof that you should not be a team of 100 people to make a game that is visually beautiful. On the artistic level, the observation is the same. The design of the creatures and the flexibility of the animation offer a unique stamp to this world of children’s fairy tales. See Tilo’s ears twitch, admire his gait as he sneaks, mock rats that scratch his chin … all these moments are part of the Ghost of a Tale experience. It is also important to note that the adventure takes place both inside and outside the buildings and that it will be necessary to know every corner by heart (or almost) to be able to complete all the quests. The music, meanwhile, is discreet when necessary, with great orchestral flights when the situation hardens. In these conditions, all that remains is to hope that Tilo’s journey is renewed enough and that the few bugs caught in this early access are eradicated. But given the passion and commitment of the creator and his protégés, we have something to be confident.
If Ghost of a Tale has taken its time, it’s hard to hold on to it. Beautiful to be damned and very addictive, the title of Lionel Gallat counteracts most of today’s productions. Thanks to a worked atmosphere and animations, one is totally immersed in this medieval world, that would not deny the Robin Hood of Disney. In his riddles, we find elements borrowed from the series The Legend of Zelda while the atmosphere reminds, at times, ICO. Scheduled for this year, this little gem has shown only one facet of its mechanisms and it is with a certain pleasure that we will follow its path until its release. There are elements to optimize but Tilo has everything to charm you!
