Ghost of a Tale on the Nintendo Switch!

Hi there! This is going to be a very short update to confirm that yes, as you might have seen during the recent Indie World (Nintendo Direct), Ghost of a Tale is indeed going to be released for the Nintendo Switch soon!

Here’s the trailer (captured entirely on the Switch):

And here is the the store page for the game.

We wish we’d be able to give you the release date right now but due to the current pandemic a lot of things are getting delayed as countries (including ours) go into lock-down mode. So for now it will have to just be “Spring”. Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook for up-to-date information.

One thing is for sure though; the game will first be available as a digital download. A physical release will come later on…

Also, if you were part of the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign that helped us to create the game then you are eligible to get a free download code when the game gets released on the Switch!

All we require is that you send us an email from the same email address you used for your pledge during the campaign (since that’s the only way we can make sure emails are legit). You can send us your code request here: crowdfunding@ghostofatale.com and we’ll send you codes as soon as possible.

That’s it for now! Remember to stay safe at home!

    I’m just here to say that I’ve been waiting for ages for the switch release. I followed the development (that video where you showed how your dynamic vegetation worked was really amazing, specially for someone that is just getting into game development) and as an overworked adult I didn’t had the time to play this gem in PC, but now that is coming to the switch I’ll be able to get into beautifully crafted experience.
    In the end, I just wanted to say great job, keep making games and thank you in advanced for what I’m sure will be a delight.

    Wonderful news, I now have one more reason to get a switch. But I do have to ask one question I’m sure you’re tired of hearing… Where can I invest in, donate to, help with, Part 2?

    Is there an update to both the physical and digital release date of this game?

    It’s now almost fall 2020, where is the game? Also where can I donate to make a part 2?

    Is there any news on the game? It’s nearly fall 2020 and there is no updates.

    I am patiently waiting… I actually emailed the developer and they said it’s at Nintendo for licensing here’s hoping

    I would like to get both a physical and digital release of it but only pay once, even if a little extra.
