Ghost of a Tale Launches for PS4 and Xbox One in February 2019


Quote:
Ghost of a Tale Xbox One and PS4 Release

Following a discussion with our distributor we’ve been made aware that releasing the Xbox One version of Ghost of a Tale smack in the middle of the holiday’s season is Not a Good Idea™. That is unless we want it to go totally unnoticed.

Important semantic point here: a distributor is a partner who is paid by a developer to make a game available on as many platforms, worldwide, as possible. A publisher actually finances and drives a game’s development, and as a result can impose its rules (likely dictated by marketing considerations). It often owns the final game’s intellectual property and sometimes owns the developer itself.

Now as you all know we don’t have a publisher. By choice. Which means we’re absolutely independent and as such we can do pretty much what we want. However we’re still capable of recognizing sound advice when we hear one!

In parallel with this we have also been informed that the PlayStation 4 version of the game will be ready towards the beginning of the year, for a potential release in February.

So the decision was straight-forward: We will do a simultaneous console release of Ghost of a Tale on Xbox One and PS4 in February.

This way we’ll stand a much better chance at getting noticed by the specialized websites, which at this point is exactly what the game needs.

I forgot about this one because it never launched on the PS4. I'm going to check out the PC version this week.

I picked this up in early access a few months ago. It's a surprisingly well-crafted stealth game with memorable characters.

I say buy it!

I bought it on GOG.com for my wife and youngest son. They highly recommend it. Really well crafted and bug free game. Well coded too, it wont play on lower end video cards though, not an issue for a gamer, but it means no go on a surface pro for example.

This reminded me how cool it would be to have a game based on the world of Redwall.

I played the preview on Xbox and bought it immediately months ago. AMAZING game! I could not believe how good it was especially for an unfinished beta. I didn't want to play longer so I could wait for the glorious finished product.
