Hey, every person! I’m Bailey, Promoting Coordinator for Aksys Games, and I’m so excited to inform you about our upcoming game, Ghost Parade, from Indonesian developer Lentera Nusantara Studios. It is a side-scrolling metroidvania platformer with a exclusive, delicate art style and an addictively difficult gameplay practical experience. Fundamentally, I’m obsessed with it. I also have actually fantastic news: it is coming to PS4 October 31! Yep — ghosts on Halloween. We do really like to get into the vacation spirit (so to speak) right here at Aksys.
Suri visits the village of the Anak Rote.
Ghost Parade follows the adventures of Suri, a young girl who gets lost in the woods when attempting to take a shortcut household from college. There, she encounters various ghosts, several of whom join her on her quest just after becoming charmed by her bravery and kindness. When Suri discovers that greedy humans are threatening to destroy the forest and its mystical inhabitants, she knows she need to act ahead of her newfound close friends drop every thing they hold dear.
To discover extra about Suri’s backstory, you can study the official Ghost Parade comic on the Aksys Games website!
Far more fantastic news: pre-orders are now open, and any person who pre-orders Ghost Parade from the Aksys On the web Retailer will acquire 20% off. In addition, the 1st 1,000 pre-orders will acquire the 22-song, 56-minute soundtrack, featuring a gorgeous score from many Indonesian bands and musicians.
Prior to you join the parade, I’d really like to fill you in a small on the background of the game. Ghost Parade, in spite of its ethereal look, does not hesitate to provide a genuine challenge, even to the most skilled platformer players.
Suri races to catch the bus, but she’s as well late!
Suri has the potential to swing a lantern in a melee attack or throw rocks from afar in order to defend herself from the dangers of the forest, but not every single threat can be neutralized with an offensive maneuver.
Suri need to navigate the woods with care, or she may well come across herself on the incorrect finish of a poison spike or the victim of serious fall harm. Luckily, Ghost Parade puts myriad save points in Suri’s path, so players do not have to redo a great deal any time they die.
There is a description of each and every spirit Suri encounters in the Journal section.
There are a whopping 70 ghosts in Ghost Parade, 30 of whom can join Suri as companions, lending their specialized skills in order to help her in battle. Players can enlist a group of 3 ghosts at a time, unlocking unique bonus skills by choosing the ideal combinations. The ghosts, inspired by Indonesian legends and folktales, are created to have exclusive personalities and cute appearances.
“In Ghost Parade, we do not want to make the ghost characters scary and antagonizing, like ghosts are in other games,” mentioned a spokesperson for Lentera Nusantara Studios. “We want the audience to know extra about our lelembut [spirits], rather than be frightened by them.”
Suri battles risky bosses, like the Spider Queen.
Ghost Parade comes from Lentera Nusantara Studios, who drew heavily on Indonesian culture to create the sights, sounds, and spirits of the game. The group started perform on the game in 2015, drawing inspiration from varied sources like Spirited Away and Pokemon. They sought to build a game with a pro-environmental message, in an work to raise awareness of cultural conservation and the lasting harm of deforestation.
