Hi everyone. Last week I mentioned that in addition to an as-yet-unnamed Japanese action game, we would be bringing another Laughing Jackal game to Steam. So, I’m pleased to be able to tell you we’ll be releasing Laughing Jackal’s compulsive action puzzler, Cubixx HD on Steam before the end of 2015.
Cubixx HD was Laughing Jackal’s first non-mini and is a particular favourite of mine, with compulsive score chasing in single player and the local multiplayer being incredibly good fun both in co-op and versus. While I might be a bit biased it wasn’t just me who thought so, with Official PlayStation Magazine UK calling it: “One of the most gloriously addictive, knuckle-bitingly frustrating experiences you can have on PSN.” Eurogamer also gave it an 8/10, calling it: “Murderously addictive.” The Sixthaxis also awarded Cubixx HD with an 8/10, saying it: “Hovers on the cusp of absolute, delightful joy.”
Think you're ready to take on the Cube? Grab a Cubot and fire your laser across 50 Arcade levels to see if you have what it takes to unlock the secrets within. To succeed you will need to evade and annihilate deadly enemies - using your lightning fast reflexes to the fullest! This is a journey where only the best will survive!
Cubixx HD is a fast paced action puzzle game which sends high scoring, combo chasing game play to the third dimension!
Play through the epic 50 level Arcade mode, test your skills to the limit with 50 Challenges or take on the world in over 150 online leaderboards! If all that isn't enough you can join forces with friends in the 7 player Co-op or destroy each other in the 7 player Deathmatch!
In other news on our Laughing Jackal releases, I can tell you that Flame Over is now available on the Humble Store, priced at just £8.99. So if you want to pick up Laughing Jackal’s fantastic firefighting action roguelike while supporting a good cause, why not head over to the Flame Over Humble Store Page?
That’s all from me. I’ll be back soon, 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

Hi everyone. If you liked last week’s release of three Ghostlight titles on the Humble Store, then I have some more good news for you as we have just released some more of our Steam back catalogue onto the Humble Store.
The bestselling SRPG Agarest: Generations of War will be joining the previously released Agarest games on the Humble Store priced at just £10.99. For those of you who prefer the dungeon delving delights of Elminage Gothic you will be able to pick the game up on the Humble Store for just £6.99. Finally Laughing Jackal’s gory chain reaction shooter OMG Zombies will be coming to the Humble store priced at just £3.99.
In other news I’m excited to say that we’ve now received the source code for the Japanese action game I mentioned in last week’s blog. We’re currently in the process of estimating how long it would take to port the game to PC based on this source code, so assuming all goes well we should have some release news for the game in the near future.
We have also begun work on porting another Laughing Jackal game to Steam. We’re going to be announcing which one in next week’s blog, but I should say it’s one of my favourite Laughing Jackal games, so it’s great to see it back in a new form.
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?

The GOG Big Fall Sale is currently ongoing, and there are some great deals on some of our DRM free GOG releases available.
From the best selling Agarest series of SRPGs the Agarest: Generations of War Collectors Edition has had its price slashed by a massive 80% as has the game’s prequel Agarest: Generations of War Zero meaning that each game is available for just £2.59. Meanwhile the latest game in the series Agarest: Generations of War 2 has had its price cut by 70% leaving it at £3.89.
Meanwhile for those of you who like a real challenge the old school dungeon crawler Elminage Gothic has had its price discounted by a whopping 74% leaving the price at just £1.69.
You’ll have to hurry though as not only does the sale itself end on Sunday, but the Agarest games are part of the current daily deal so you won’t be able to get them at this great price for much longer.
Meanwhile since the Steam release of Mugen Souls we’ve been very busy evaluating games for us to pick up, and I’m very pleased to say that we are now very close to agreeing deals for two of them in particular. The first of these is a Steam release of a Japanese action game to, which has probably been one of the more requested games we’ve had at late. I’m hoping to be able to share more details of it in the future, but I guess I should probably wait until the deal is actually signed :).
