Description [en]

A beautiful 2D sci-fi metroidvania about love, hope, and redemption. Gameplay influenced by Super Metroid and Dark Souls.

Ghost Song is a 2D "metroidvania" style game that not only gives players that feeling of isolation and minimalism Super Metroid fans long for, but also delivers an emotionally powerful story. This story is told not through pages of exposition or long cut scenes, but through being in the game, being in the moment, and observing events as they unfold. It's a highly ambient, atmospheric approach to story that falls somewhere between Super Metroid and Dark Souls in its tenor.

Lorian V is a place of myth and legend that many have attempted to explore and from which few have returned. There are numerous theories about what this moon actually is, but the most important thing to know about it is that when people end up there the result always seems to be the same. Death. The moon is haunted by the souls of its victims; ghosts who linger on while their twisted bodies roam, no more than empty vessels of chaos and aggression.

A ghost can only be freed from this existence if his or her physical remains are destroyed, and this is central to the game's story. Freeing those you care about, freeing the innocent. Maybe even freeing yourself.

This is a world with a long and troubled history. By exploring we will finds artifacts from past exploration and colonization attempts, slowly piecing together centuries of history and myth.

We will also encounter the living. In our journeys we will occasionally run afoul of NPCs with stories and struggles of their own.
