Cooking up a PC port of Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God

 

Hi everyone! We've been hard at work in the Ghostlight kitchen, cooking up a PC port of Compile Heart's curry-tastic dungeon crawler, Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God. Previously served up exclusively on PlayStation Vita, our PC port will include all the high quality, ethically sourced ingredients you'd expect, including delicious Steam Achievements, mouth-watering Steam Trading Cards, nutritious Cloud Saving and optional sides, such as mouse and keyboard control and Game Pad controls. 

Join Pupuru on a delicious adventure filled with excitement, thrills and all the curry you can eat as you quest to save your favourite local curry restaurant from being swallowed up by the big bad curry chain which has moved into town. 

Take part in a meaty quest to discover the four Legendary Ingredients needed to make the Legendary Magic Curry! Explore dungeons that change shape each time you visit them. Fight monsters, collect items and cook curry to power up your characters! Can you save Smile Curry, or will you never again eat your favourite spicy dish?! 

  • Quest for Curry - Arm yourself, stock up on Skills and then venture forth into the many dungeons, filled with weird and wonderful monsters, handy items and - of course! - the freshest curry ingredients. 

  • Share your curry with "friends" - A strange quest needs a strange group of companions. Share your food with your gluttonous but brave companion, Kuu, to power him up. Hang out with Puni, servant of the Great Curry God and ignore the attentions of Gigidis, the slightly creepy Dark Lord of the Netherworld. 

  • Behold, the Power of Curry! Make delicious curry from the ingredients you find in the dungeon and boost your stats. Or, throw your cooking failures at your enemies to nerf their abilities! 

When it was released on PlayStation Vita, Sorcery Saga received some fantastic reviews including: 

USgamer - 4/5 "Who knew a game could make you so obsessed with a food item?" 

Pocket Gamer UK - 8/10 "This gem of a roguelike dungeon-crawler doesn't pull any punches and leaves you with an immense feeling of accomplishment if you're skilled (and lucky) enough to clear its dungeons." 

IGN - 7.5/10  "If you’re looking to expand your gaming palette, Sorcery Saga is a tasty little morsel for the Vita that offers both plenty of challenges and lots of laughs." 

We will be serving up Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God on Steam - and possibly via other eateries - later this year, so please keep your eyes peeled and your mouth watering until we're able to share more information with you. 

Until then, bon appetit! ^_^

Dungeon Crawling

Hi everyone. These past few week's I've been busy dungeon crawling, and no I'm not talking about exploring the darker reaches of the Ghostlight Warehouse, although rumour has it many strange and wonderful things can be found there. 

Instead I've been playing through the two rather excellent dungeon crawlers that we're currently working on, one of which we should be able to actually announce very soon, possibly next week in fact! 

While both of these games are very different, they do have two important similarities. First of all, they both look really awesome and are great fun to play, and secondly they pose quite a challenge and are genuinely testing my gaming abilities. I think my main problem is that I have a habit of trying to push a touch too far at times, meaning that I've had plenty of opportunities to see the game over screens :(I also have a habit of being a little too cautious when it comes to managing consumable items, when I'd clearly be better off - at times - using items up at much faster rate.   

The good news is that game conversions themselves are progressing really well (certainly far better than my skill at playing them) and I think we should be ready to start the closed beta very soon after their announcement.  So watch this space if you'd like to take part :)

That’s all for now. I’ll be back soon with more news from Ghostlight, but until then why not follow us on our TwitterInstagram 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.

A second Japanese Dungeon Crawler arrives!

Hi everyone! I had a nice surprise this week, as the first PC build of a second Japanese Dungeon Crawler arrived in the Ghostlight offices this week, which suggests that 2018 could be a really good year for any of you who are looking for some excellent Japanese examples of the genre on your PC.  (From our side, Al is particularly pleased to have a chance to dig into both games.) 

In even better news, this time the first PC build included walls and a floor :) although there is currently an issue with the tutorial, which given my poor skills at dungeon crawlers is a bit awkward for me. 

I'm personally having a hard time picking a favourite between the two games that we're working on right now: they both feel quite unique in their own way, but I'm definitely enjoying them for different reasons so I can't wait to be able to tell you more about them.  Speaking of which, I've been told that we're expecting to be able to announce one of the two very soon, so keep your eyes on the blog for more information as soon as I'm allowed to share it! :)

In other news, it's taken a while, but I have finally managed to put some of the photos from my trip to Japan online, so if you'd like to check them out then take a look at this album. 

That’s all for now. I’ll be back soon with more news from Ghostlight, but until then why not follow us on our TwitterInstagram and Facebook pages, our Youtube Channel and our  Google + account, where we’ll be posting all the latest news from Ghostlight.
