Ghost Song, a love letter to Super Metroid (and Dark Souls), has received a release date after all these years. Humble Games and developer Old Moon have revealed that Ghost Song will release on November 3, 2022 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC.
While some of you may not know Ghost Song, if you enjoy Metroidvania-type games, then you’ll love it. It is also worth mentioning that this title has been developed by one person, Matt White. I still remember backing this game on Kickstarter back in 2014! It’s been a while, but Matt has been steadily working on Ghost Song. Most recently, Matt and Humble Games announced that they would be publishing the game, so I thought we’d see a release date within the next year…and I was right.
Sail beneath the surface in search of answers in ghost song, an atmospheric 2D adventure of self-discovery, ancient mysteries and cosmic terror. Explore winding caverns lit only by bioluminescent flora, battle strange and powerful creatures, and gain new abilities to help you unearth the long-buried secrets of this alien world.
- Discover what lies below – Explore the twisted alien tunnels and long-abandoned laboratories of an expansive, beautifully illustrated Metroidvania-inspired 2D world filled with secret chambers and a haunting story.
- Power and progress – Acquire powerful weapons and revolutionary new abilities from the depths, unlocking access to new layers of the moon and optional hidden areas.
- Take on challenging enemies – Battle fungal aliens and Lorian metal husks with responsiveness and precision. Level up your power and customize your suit and blaster with an arsenal of modules.
- Blast and smash – Master the distinctive rhythm of Deadsuit’s core combat. Hit enemies with your rapid-fire blaster, building up barrel heat that empowers your melee attacks.
- You are not alone – You are not the only entity trapped in this unknown place. Encounter a cast of voiced characters and discover their own stories of survival, courage, abandonment, and redemption.
Mind you, I’ve played a few beta versions of the game since the beginning, and in the last year, a newer version that showed how far the game had come. I may be a bit biased, but what I’ve played so far has been quality. I’m definitely looking forward to playing the full game when it releases in a few months.
Ultimately, I’m very happy for Matt White. I can’t wait for everyone else to experience this game and see what I’m talking about. Currently add the game to your queue on Steam, if you’re looking to pick up the game on PC.
I can not wait!
