The sight of a mouse usually sends people shrieking and climbing on to furniture. The game ‘Ghost of a Tale’ has reinvented the character of the mouse, in this case, making him a lovable and adventurous minstrel. Tilo is a courageous little mouse, on a journey wrought with dangers, in the hope of finding his one true love.
He explores the land of Dwindling Heights Keep – which has been beautifully imagined and designed, in the hopes of discovering its secrets. The core theme of this role-playing game is exploration – an expedition undertaken by Tilo. Hailed as one of the most unique RPGs launched in recent times, players find themselves immersed in a world of adventure and humour.
The game tackles serious subject matter, without slipping into being a sad game. It manages to explore the subject matter very thoughtfully and with sensitivity. Tilo comes across several other characters through his quests – all of whom are animals. The game features interactions with other characters and sub-plots which include disguises and conversations with friends and with foes.
Tilo’s strength lies in his nimbleness and stealth, rather than brute force. It is up to players to benefit from these assets to achieve their goals.
