Re: NPC's Ahoy!

There will not be many NPCs in the game but the ones you can talk to have a clear agenda, and it will be up to the player to discover it. The game may have "cute" aspects on the outside but this is definitely not a Manichean world. Morality in Ghost of a Tale is definitely in the gray zone; no compl...

Very good question. No need to worry though; in the case of GoaT (I can't speak for other indies) the only thing it means is the game cannot be released on any other console before Xbox One.

This agreement does not affect the game's PC release in any way (I made sure of that).
