"A gorgeous looking stealth with some RPG elements and too many mechanical simplifications. Worth a try, if you're searching for something simple."

I am always intrigued when it comes to stealth games, but I haven‘t heard much of Ghost of a Tale yet and got it in a bundle. The game grabbed me quite good from the beginning and I really like the journey through it so far. With good graphics and a fitting musical score, this game is quite a surprise and it is hardly believable that this game was mostly developed by just one person. The main protagonists ist very charismatic, and the cast of characters is both quirky and hilarious. A good story accompanies the overall good presentation. The enemies, riddles and traps as quite clever and the theme of Ghost of a Tale really sticks out from today’s usual action-adventure games.

This game is so cute with very aesthetically pleasing graphics. Stealth tactics are not my forte and I usually don't like stealth games but i enjoyed hiding from those dumb rats!

Not magical, but horror-stealthy

I wanted to be charmed by a magical forest in a light-hearted 3D adventure. Instead I got frightened by horror rats in a tight stealth 'em up.
