About Ghost of a Tale:
The game takes place in a medieval world where animals look like people. Many of these animals have their own kingdoms.
Various types of undead creatures are mentioned in the lore, including mice, rats, frogs, crabs, badgers, hawks, spiders, leeches, magpies, and leech-like creatures.
The game takes place hundreds of years after a terrible event called the War of the Green Flame. At this time, an emerald fireball of unknown origin rolled across the globe, consuming all who opposed it and resurrecting their rotting corpses as an ever-growing army of the undead.
The mouse kingdom sent an envoy to the flame at the height of the conflict, hoping to save their home by exposing the weaknesses of others. However, the being could not be reasoned with and destroyed most of their land, anyway.
They permanently removed the mice from power for their betrayal, but the rat army eventually vanquished the beast, becoming the war’s heroes. The exact history of these events has been lost in the mists of time, and the only reliable story is told by a group of magpies called the Truth Sayers. They live in a tower on an old island and tell stories about the past.
At the start of the game, rats have thrown Tilo into a dungeon. He must get out of his prison and the surrounding lands. All of Tilo’s enemies are much stronger than he is, so the brave little mouse will have to be smart, sneaky, and quick to win.
