Hi everyone. As promised in last week’s blog I now have more details of Elminage Gothic & OMG Zombies’ appearance in this week’s Steam Weeklong Deals for you. So, if you’ve been waiting to pick up these two fantastic games, this is the blog post for you. :)
Today Elminage Gothic will be entering the Steam Weeklong Deals, with a massive 70% discount reducing its price from $9.99 to just $2.99. As the name suggests, this discount will be live until the 10th of August, so be sure to visit the Eminage Gothic Steam Store page to take advantage of this great deal
From the makers of the world renowned “Wizardry Empire” titles, Starfish SD brings you the latest entry in their popular series of dungeon crawlers. Elminage Gothic, previously only available in Japanese on PlayStation® Portable, now comes to PC offering a classic old school dungeon crawling experience with a dark, gothic twist!
- Well over 80 hours of dungeon crawling gameplay!
- Hundreds of stunning monsters, creatures and demons to defeat
- Multiple character classes
- The classic and traditional “THAC0” system!
- Full Japanese to English translation
Meanwhile OMG Zombies will have its price slashed by an incredible 80% bringing it down to the bargain price of just $0.99. Just as with Elminage Gothic, this deal will last until the 10th August, so hurry up and head on over to the OMG Zombies Steam Store page to take advantage of this insane deal while it lasts.
OMG Zombies is an awesome reimagining of a genuine classic: the critically acclaimed OMG-Z, a top-ten all-time Metacritic rated PSP game and ranked as Metacritic’s best action title ever released on PSP! The guys at Push Square gave it 89% and called it “a must buy” game, Escape Rope claimed it’s “...one of the best zombie games in recent memory” and Defunct Games gave it an A rating saying it’s “so addictive... I still can't get enough of watching the explosive chain reaction caused from a well-placed bullet.”
In other news I’m pleased to say we have added some frequently requested graphical options to Way of the Samurai 4. By editing the ini file you can now change the Field of View, disable Depth of Field and disable bloom & flare effects. For more details on how to alter these settings, please see the announcement.

It’s been a busy week here at Ghostlight as we have been regularly patching Way of the Samurai 4, both to fix some of the bugs that managed to slip through our extensive beta test, and to add in one or two frequently requested features.
Possibly the most requested feature that was missing from the original release was mouse support. Well, I’m really happy to be able to tell you that in version 1.02 our busy lead programmer has now managed to implement mouse controls, which work as follows:
Moving the mouse controls the camera
Left mouse button = weak attack
Right mouse button = heavy attack
Middle mouse button = block
If you’ve been holding off buying the game because of the missing mouse support, then you might also be pleased to hear that we have extended the 20% launch discount until the 6th of August. So why not head on over to the Way of the Samurai 4 Steam Store page to pick up the game for just £15.19?
In other Way of the Samurai 4 news, some of you might be wondering why you’ve now got a copy of firefighting roguelike Flame Over. If you are, then you should check out the previous blogpost from last night as we explain what’s been going on in that post :)
Finally I’m pleased to report that chain-reaction-shooter OMG Zombies & Elminage Gothic, our old school dungeon crawler, will be part of next week’s Steam Weekly Sale. We’ll be posting more details of the sale on Monday, so keep your eyes peeled for more information.
That’s all from me. I’ll be back next week, but until then why not follow us on our Twitter and Facebook pages, our Youtube Channel and our Google + account, where we’ll be posting all the latest news from Ghostlight? You can also follow me on Twitter for a more personal take on all things Ghostlight.

Regarding recent comments about the mention of bonus DLC in Way Of The Samurai 4’s product description, we’re happy to offer the following explanation:
Our original plan was to launch the game with a 40% Pre-Purchase discount along with bonus DLC, after which we planned to apply a 20% discount to the game during its first week of release. However, we later decided it would be better value to keep the 40% Pre-Purchase discount but then apply a 20% discount to both the game and all DLC during the release week instead. Unfortunately the original game description wasn’t updated to reflect this.
As a way of making amends, anyone that has purchased Way of the Samurai in the last two weeks will automatically receive a free copy of Flame Over in the their Steam library. Additionally, we are also extending the 20% discount for one more week.
Thanks again for all your feedback and support – it’s hugely appreciated by everyone here :)
