Hi everyone. The Steam Summer Sale is over now, and I hope you’re all enjoying the games you picked up, particularly if any of them were Ghostlight games. :)
Speaking of sales, if you’re a PlayStation gamer in Europe, remember to check out the Big in Japan Sale, while we don’t have any games in the sale this time, it still offers some great deals for fans of Japanese gaming.
It’s been a busy time here in the Ghostlight office, as we’ve begun a closed beta for our upcoming Steam JRPG. Currently this closed beta is invite only, but depending how it goes we’re planning on opening it up for applications in the near future.
So far the beta seems to be going fairly smoothly, and the team at Laughing Jackal is hard at work fixing the bugs that have been discovered.
We’re expecting to be able to announce details of the game very soon, so please keep your eyes on the blog and on our social media pages as well. :)
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.

It’s that time of year again! The Steam Holiday Sale is upon us once more, bringing with it lots of great deals on all of our Steam games!
I know you’ll be itching to get to the Steam Store to take advantage of all the amazing offers available, so I’ll try to run through them as quickly as possible:
As usual, all discounts apply not only to the base game, but to all of its associated DLC too:
Way of the Samurai 4, (regular price $24.99) has a 50% discount.
Way of the Samurai 3 (regular price $19.99) has a 40% discount.
Agarest: Generations of War (regular price $14.99) has a 60% discount.
Agarest: Generations of War Zero (regular price $19.99) has a 60% discount.
Agarest Generations of War 2 (regular price $19.99) has a 60% discount.

Cubixx HD (regular price $8.99) has an 80% discount.
In addition to this, Agarest: Generations of War is also available as part of the Summer Sale JRPG Bundle, meaning you can save an extra 15% on Agarest and on great games such as Valkyria Chronicles, Tales of Zestiria, Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 and Disgaea PC. That’s on top of the Summer Sale discount! The best news of all is that if you already have some games that are included in this bundle, then the price of that game will be deducted from the cost of the bundle.
That’s all from me, I’ll leave you to enjoy your bargain hunting. :)

Hi everyone. Usually I come here to tell you about Japanese games getting a release in the West, however, in a slightly unusual turn of events I’m going to tell you about the Japanese release of Laughing Jackal’s fantastic firefighting action roguelike, Flame Over.
Flame Over is available for just ¥1099 and you can find it here on the Japanese PSN Store.
As a big fan of Japanese gaming, I must admit it’s really exciting to see a game I’ve worked on released on PSN in Japan. :)
Now you’re playing with fire!
Blending top down ‘squirt ‘em-up’ action with Roguelike RPG mechanics, Flame Over features fast-paced fire-fighting thrills, randomly generated levels and 4 deadly game zones.
Guide fire-fighting hero, Blaze Carruthers, in a race against time and near-certain death! Squirt, splash and spray your way through all 16 floors of the deadly Infernal Industries building, combating ferocious fires in a red-hot adventure that changes every time.
This game is ON FIRE!
• It Burns! - Fight against a deadly dynamic fire system that spreads realistically.
• Shop ‘til you Drop! - Find hidden items, equip powerups and upgrade Blaze to survive.
• Be a Hero! - Rescue panicking people and cutesy cats to stay alive.
• Never-Ending Emergency! - Thousands of room variations and secrets will keep you fired up… forever!
If you’re not in Japan and want to play Flame Over, then you can pick it up on Vita, PS4 or on Steam.
In other news, we’re still hard at work on several projects at the moment, including the JRPG I’ve mentioned a few times, which is coming along nicely. The porting process has been going very smoothly! Unfortunately, we’re still not able to share details with you yet, but as soon as we’re allowed, rest assured I’ll be on the blog to tell you all. :)
Finally, I’m sorry to tell you that there will not be a Ghostlight blog next week, as I’m going to South Africa on holiday. This has the side benefit of not overshadowing E3, which I’m sure was something everyone over in LA was worrying about. :) Having said that, I have emailed everyone displaying at E3 asking them to hold off on announcing anything exciting until I’m back in the country. I haven’t had any replies yet, but I’m sure they’ll be coming any minute…
That’s all from me. I’ll be back in two weeks, 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?
