Ghost of a Tale, the stealth RPG developed & published by SeithCG, will be leaving Steam Early Access on March 13, 2018, according to a post on the game’s official website.

In this adorable adventure, you take on the role of a minstrel mouse named Tilo in his quest to explore the mysteries of Dwindling Heights Keep. In a world populated solely by animals, you’re not well-equipped for fighting and so you must rely on sneakiness and subterfuge to keep yourself alive. Throughout the course of the game, you’ll don disguises, creep past critters, and chat with various NPCs as you try to track down your true love Merra.

LevelUp Translation will be handling the localization for French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, and Chinese – a particularly challenging job as the game has quite a few puns throughout its narrative. The game will also be making its way to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The developers would like to make a Nintendo Switch version of the game, but it’s not in the budget right now. However, they may elect to hire a third party to port the game over should Ghost of a Tale prove wildly successful on release.

Following the release of the game, the developers will be focusing on bug fixing and providing support to their customers. The developers will write up another update once things have settled down a bit on their end.

If you don’t yet own Ghost of a Tale, you can grab it right now on Steam Early Access for $19.99 or your regional equivalent. It leaves early access on March 13, 2018, and Xbox One & PlayStation 4 versions of the game are expected to be released sometime later this year.
