Patch Release 6.60

Here's patch 6.60, which fixes a couple of remaining bugs. Most of them are quite specific, which is a very good thing indeed... :)

Fixed:
  • UI: Black screen remains after the end credits are finished rolling (when using gamepad).
  • Misc: Possible framerate drop when entering the catacombs for the first time.
  • Misc: The faraway surface of the lake can sometimes disappear when Tilo's in a precise location near the far tower.
  • Misc: The sequence of knocking down a key to the floor + saving + dying + reloading can lead to said key not being pickable anymore.
  • Misc: Specific exploit allowing Tilo to sprint and sneak while wearing the armor (sorry speedrunners!).
Changed:
  • Memory requirement for the game has been lowered by almost 600Mb.

Patch Release 6.55 (now with full Chinese localization)

Hello all! Here's patch update 6.55, which brings a few bug fixes (including for ultrawide resolutions) as well as full Chinese localization! :)

Fixed:
  • UI: Show Build number preference is not properly recalled.
  • UI: It is possible to call the inventory while the options menu is displayed.
  • UI: Rare cases where a speech icon stays on screen even if the NPC is not visible anymore.
  • Misc: Leeches detection counts as "detected by guards".
  • Misc: One bag of grain is not pickable in the room next to the garden.
  • Misc: There's a kill trigger on a step in a very specific location in the Great Hall.
Fixed (SPOILERS):
  • AI: Rare cases of guards' agro not subsiding when going from the jail to the distillery via the elevator.
  • UI: Fatale's name label is offset on the shore.
  • Misc: It is possible to talk to the commander even after he's knocked out.
  • Some issues when putting food items on the tables of the commissary.

Changed:
  • Lighting: The torches' shadows "wobbling" movement is now less extreme.
  • Misc: The camera black mask effects (when hiding) now work with ultrawide resolutions.
  • Chinese is now officially supported (sorry it took so long)!

There's also a few collider (stairs) issues, light-leaking cases, and plenty of visual "holes" in the sets geometry which have been taken care of (thanks to your guys' help with pinpointing those!). Finally there were some specific cases where Tilo would freeze when picking up mushrooms which should now be resolved.

Enjoy! :)

About This Game

Ghost of a Tale is an action-RPG game in which you play as Tilo, a mouse and minstrel caught up in a perilous adventure. The game takes place in a medieval world populated only by animals, and puts an emphasis on immersion and exploration. It features stealth elements, disguises, conversations with allies and enemies, and quests.

You’ll be able to explore the secrets of Dwindling Heights Keep and navigate its dangers. Tilo is not much of a fighter, so stealth and nimbleness are your allies when confronted with enemies twice your size. Talk to the characters you meet and leave no stone unturned in your quest to find Merra, your true love….
