Gamescom 2014

Hi everyone.  I’m afraid there’s not an awful lot of news for you this week.  The conversion of Agarest 2 to PC is continuing to make great progress, but I’ve spent most of my time looking after the Elminage Gothic beta.  We’ve had a very helpful influx of new testers this week and as a result, the extra bug reporting has been adding to our already heavy workload (good work guys :)).

In addition to working on the conversions of Elminage Gothic and Agarest 2, our sister company Laughing Jackal  have sent a couple of their team over to Gamescom this week to show off their upcoming masterpiece, “Flame Over”.  It’s a Vita game which has best been best described as a firefighting Pyroguelike! :)  So, if you do happen to be at Gamescom this weekend, I’d heartily recommend that you check it out – it’s on the Sony stand (in the 18+ section for some reason).  Alternatively, you can catch a glimpse of Flame Over in the new teaser trailer which is going live on the SCEE blog today.  The game looks amazing and plays even better, but don’t just take my word for it (as I could be accused of a little bias), why not check it out for yourself? :)

Lastly, I’m really pleased to report that we have now officially signed the game that I’ve been hinting at over the last couple of months.  Unfortunately we won’t be able to announce it just yet, but do keep your eyes peeled for more information in the coming weeks.  Just to remind you all, the game in question is an action title that was originally released on console in Japan, so we’re getting busy with the process of converting the title over to PC for an upcoming release on Steam.  More on this soon…

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.

Last chance to apply for the Elminage Gothic beta

Hi everyone. I’m afraid there’s not a great deal of news for you this week. 

We’re still hard at work on Agarest 2 and  Elminage Gothic, which thanks to the hard work of the beta testing team (and of course Laughing Jackal) are coming along very nicely.

Speaking of the beta testing team, I thought I’d remind you all that we’re still open for applications to the Elminage Gothic closed beta.  With applications closing this Sunday there’s not much time left to get your application in!

As with previous closed betas, we will not be picking people on a random or first-come-first-served basis, so please do bear that in mind.  What a ‘yes’ decision actually comes down to depends on a number of factors, including how representative we feel the range of PC specs we’ve assembled for the beta is.

As we only have a limited number of places available for the beta, feel free to tell us why you think you’d be particularly suited to helping us with the testing phase of Elminage Gothic. This may include information like details of any previous experience you’ve had in beta testing, or simply declaring your undying love for the genre.  In fact, please tell us anything that you feel is relevant which may help us approve your application. J

Moving on to Lucifer’s Call, which we mentioned in last week’s blog, while I don’t have much news for you it is looking quite likely that we will be able to release it on PSN very soon. As always I’ll be posting more news on here when I get it.

Finally we’re still waiting for all the paperwork to be filled in for that unannounced Steam title that I’ve been talking about recently. We’re expecting it to be ready to be announced soon. While it is a Japanese game, it is actually quite different to most of our back catalogue being more of an action game rather than a traditional JRPG.

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?

Elminage Gothic Beta Applications are now open!

Well, the first phase of the Elminage Gothic beta has been in progress for over a week now and so far I’m really happy with how it’s been going.  Huge thanks go out to all the beta testers for their hard work as they’ve already found quite a few important compatibility and text issues – thanks guys!  The team over at Laughing Jackal have been hard at work fixing all the reported issues and tightening up the latest version, which means we’ll soon be ready to add more people ready for phase 2 of the beta.

In phase 1, the Elminage Gothic beta was an exclusive invite-only club, however in phase 2 we’ll be opening it up to a much wider variety of applicants.  To enter the Elminage Gothic closed beta all you need to do is to send an email to: beta@ghostlight.uk.com with your name, date of birth and the technical specifications of your PC.

Applications will close on the 10th August, so please make sure to get them in before then.  As with previous closed betas, we will not be picking people on a random or first-come-first-served basis, so please do bear that in mind.  What a ‘yes’ decision actually comes down to depends on a number of factors, including how representative we feel the range of PC specs we’ve assembled for the beta is.

As we only have a limited number of places available for the beta, feel free to tell us why you think you’d be particularly suited to helping us with the testing phase of Elminage Gothic. This may include information like, details of any previous experience you’ve had in beta testing or simply declaring your undying love for the genre.  In fact, please tell us anything that you feel is relevant which may help us approve your application :).

In other news, I’ve recently been hearing whispers about a new PS2 Classics release on PSN. Apparently, Shin Megami Tensei: Lucifer’s Call (which was fully translated in to English, French and German by the way) is currently in test with Sony.  While I’m hopeful that this will mean you’ll soon be able to purchase Lucifer’s Call on PSN, it is worth bearing in mind that PS2 emulation problems can still occur at this stage of the submissions procedure, so I’m keeping everything crossed it will pass first time!

Speaking of the Shin Megami Tensei series of PS2 games, I’m also pleased and somewhat relieved to be able to tell you that SMT: Digital Devil Saga is now available on all Sony European PSN Stores.  Apologies for all those who have been kept waiting :).

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?
