Hey, every person! I’m Bailey, Advertising and marketing 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. Generally, I’m obsessed with it. I also have seriously very good news: it is coming to PS4 October 31! Yep — ghosts on Halloween. We do enjoy 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 house from college. There, she encounters many ghosts, quite a few of whom join her on her quest right after getting 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 should act ahead of her newfound buddies drop every little thing they hold dear.
To discover extra about Suri’s backstory, you can study the official Ghost Parade comic on the Aksys Games website!
Additional very good news: pre-orders are now open, and any one who pre-orders Ghost Parade from the Aksys On the internet Shop will obtain 20% off. Furthermore, the initially 1,000 pre-orders will obtain the 22-song, 56-minute soundtrack, featuring a amazing score from different Indonesian bands and musicians.
Ahead of you join the parade, I’d enjoy to fill you in a small on the background of the game. Ghost Parade, in spite of its ethereal look, does not hesitate to supply a actual challenge, even to the most skilled platformer players.
Suri races to catch the bus, but she’s also late!
Suri has the potential to swing a lantern in a melee attack or throw rocks from afar in order to safeguard herself from the dangers of the forest, but not each and every threat can be neutralized with an offensive maneuver.
Suri should navigate the woods with care, or she may possibly obtain herself on the incorrect finish of a poison spike or the victim of extreme fall harm. Luckily, Ghost Parade puts myriad save points in Suri’s path, so players do not have to redo significantly any time they die.
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 particular bonus skills by picking the proper combinations. The ghosts, inspired by Indonesian legends and folktales, are made 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,” stated 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 function 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.
Ahead of we depart, we’d like to leave you with a particular treat. Right here are two songs from Ghost Parade’s soundtrack:
