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. :)

What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (10 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (10 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (11 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (11 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (11 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (11 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (11 Hours ago)
