Our videos of Ghost Song

Our videos of Ghost Song

If you're used to keeping an eye on the community section on Gamersyde, you can't have missed the few videos of Ghost Song which were posted a few days ago. If you have no idea what we're talking about, then you'd better check out the two videos we just made thanks to the code developer Matt White sent us. The man is currently working on an old school title which pays tribute to both Metroid and Dark Souls. The game was launched on Kickstarter and the money which was collected was far beyond White's dreams. As you'll see, the game lets you play the role of a mysterious character wearing a battle suit very reminiscent of Samus'. You'll gain new abilities as you progress and will have to find your way in a maze-like open world. We have all reasons to look forward to the final product, although the aiming system could use a more recent scheme instead of the old one from the 2D Metroid days. We believe it'd be way more practical to use the right analog stick to shoot at 360 degrees but it might be against Matt White's original idea to create his very own Metroid game. More info right here.
Note : The version presented here is still in beta state.

Cool. :)

For a beta game I am enjoying it a lot.

I think the game the day is ready for a final retail game will be an excellent one.

Those spike dudes seem fierce. Love the lonely atmosphere yet still there are some nonviolent NPCs. I hope that OFF MAP notification isn't so constant when you're in an unknown area.

Only if you have the map on screen. You can disable the map.

Anyway this is a beta, in the final version you maybe can choose

I have upload a 4th gameplay video to the comunnity videos whith a boss fight and my problems with the new double jump adquisition. :D

@Rivroner dude you can jump three times in the air, why do you keep only jumping once XD

I know I know. :D

It was a couple of minutes of mental confusion. lol

I suppose I was playing Super Metroid when double jump was two times at first not three. :D

I finished the beta 15 minutes after that jump-dumb moment. :D

I am gonna play this weekend more deep into the game to find every secret I left (I will record a couple of extra videos) and I will give you my opinion about the beta in the steam forum you know Matt. :)

    rayy has more fun* (50 minutes ago)
  • rayy
    rayy @KORNdog: TW3 can't be a Skyring well done because W3 is not trying to be Skyrin. Different games and different type of RPG I think. You could say one more fun quest than the other though. (50 minutes ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind ... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (8 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind @rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (8 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (8 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (11 Hours ago)
