The Steam Fall Sale 2015 begins

The end of autumn is here, which means it is once again time for this year’s version of the fantastic Steam Fall Sale. And once again we’re going all-in, with amazing savings on every single Ghostlight release on Steam! Since I suspect some of you are already itching to head off to the Steam Store and check out the bargains, I’ll give you a quick rundown of the brilliant savings available on all of our games:

Fantastic Japanese action game, Way of the Samurai 4, (regular price $24.99) will have its price halved during the sale, with the discount also applying to the game’s DLC. The Way of the Samurai series is widely renowned for allowing players to make far-reaching decisions that can radically alter the course of the story and this, the fourth entry in this thrilling series and previously exclusive to the PS3, is no exception! Now all the sword-wielding action, adventure and drama of the Way of the Samurai series comes to PC for the very first time, continuing the series’ blend of customization, exploration, action gameplay and quirky humour.

The chart topping SRPG, Agarest: Generations of War (regular price $14.99) will have its price slashed by 75% during the sale.  We’ll also be applying this discount to all of the game’s DLC, the premium edition upgrade and - of course - the Collector’s Edition itself. With a truly epic storyline taking in 5 generations of heroes and challenging grid-based strategic battles, this offer is fantastic value for anyone who wants to jump into this great series of SRPGs.

Meanwhile, the prequel to Agarest, Agarest: Generations of War Zero (regular price $19.99) will have a whopping 65% discount during the sale. Once again, this applies to all the games DLC bundles as well! With a brand new story, improved character portraits and the addition of Vacation days allowing you to get to know your party members better, this is one that fans of the first Agarest won’t want to miss.

The sequel to Agarest, Agarest Generations of War 2 (regular price $19.99), with its brand new fast-paced battle system will have its price slashed by 60% during the sale, with this discount also applying to all the game’s DLC.  Set in a parallel world to the previous games, this is a great introduction to any players new to the series.

In addition to this, for those who want to get the complete series, Agarest: The Complete Saga (regular price $59.99) will have its price reduced by a massive 70%. The complete Saga includes The Agarest: Generations of War Collector’s Edition, Agarest: Generations of War Zero and Agarest: Generations of War 2 in one awesome package.

From the makers of the Agarest & Hyper Dimension Neptunia series comes the turn-based JRPG Mugen Souls (regular price $19.99) which will have its price cut by 40% during the fall sale, with this discount once again applying to all the DLC. Mugen Souls features a free-roaming battle map, turn-based combat, and massive amounts of customization and growth to maximize the fun players can have with the game.

Those of you who prefer a bit of Wizardry-style dungeon crawling will be pleased to know that Elminage Gothic (regular price $9.99), from the makers of the Wizardry Empires series, will also have its price slashed by a massive 70% for the duration of the autumn sale.  This old-school dungeon crawler features some fantastic monster designs and challenging turn based combat. Do you dare delve into the Dungeons of Tsun-Kurn this autumn?

With the days drawing shorter you might like to settle down in front of a warm fire in the evening, but in case that gets out of hand we offer you Flame Over (regular price $11.99), Laughing Jackal’s firefighting action Roguelike, which gets a crazy 80% discount during the autumn sale. 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.

The blood-splattered, chain reaction shooter, OMG Zombies! (regular price $4.99), gets a gruesome 80% off its regular price during the sale. Cause massive explosions of gore with one well-placed bullet in this zombie shooter with a difference.

Make sure to head over to the Steam Store to take advantage of these great offers.  You can see a full list of all the Ghostlight games available on Steam here.

In other news, for those of you who missed it earlier this week we announced that we would be bringing Laughing Jackal’s fast paced arcade puzzle game Cubixx HD from PS3 to Steam. Having played it some more lately as part of testing I’ve been remembering just how much fun the game is, so I’d suggest you check out the previous blogpost for more details.

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?

Cubixx HD coming to Steam

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

More Ghostlight Games come to the Humble Store

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?
