A Tale of the Ghosts [Mission-Pack] - Episode 2 Available

Recommended Posts

leoncj

From the creator of Ghost Ship: REMASTERED, Dillimore Curse and The Survivors series

 

leoncj Presents

 

gold-medal-dpd.pngAn award winning for the Most Promising Mission-Pack 2019 gold-medal-dpd.png

(Logo 2 created since 28/03/2020)

(Old Logo created since 23/07/2019)

 

Continues the story of Ghost Ship.

When I finished and improved a bit the story of Ghost Ship with releasing the remastered version 8 years later, I've decided

to continue the story about the book - A Tale of the Ghosts, so this kinda does feel like a Ghost Ship 2, but it's a whole new mission-pack.

 

A Tale of the Ghosts is an episodic mission-pack.

You take control of two main protagonists who end up being haunted by the ghost book.
James Collin, a guy who was at the wrong place in the wrong time and Tara White, the daughter of Chris and Alessa Whites.

 

Different characters provide different survival tactics and skills.

At certain points, you will have to choose who you want to play as.

 

Bringing back some of the aspects and gameplay from my very old mission-pack series, like The Survivors, where you always have a companion ally who has their own skills

and how each character the player plays as also has their own specialty, like different weapons and health.

Their daughter, Tara White, who recently got practice work in the Ocean Docks, Los Santos continues with her life, but soon finds out

damn. this was good for a sequel.

 

alright, what i've gotta say is an semi-advice as well. i have played those missions a long time ago, even before starting to play Ghost Ship.



so we get introduced with two protagonists - a guy who works in Ocean Docks and has care about his job. he's trying to ensure that the shipments are delivered. boy, he looks tough already from the start.

as this is a sequel, it's already understandable why "A Tale Of The Ghosts" book exist for a reason; it possesses supernatural powers and haunts the victims. it includes sense of symbolism here, i don't know if you did this on purpose but;

i would theorize that "A Tale Of The Ghosts" book is written by an evil spirit, presumably as to include sense that it's got supernatural powers - or it could be someone had been affected by hallucinations and psychological issues,

writes about his "unseen" reality in the book; then the "unseen" becomes a reality, where it affects the people who read it/stole it or in some other way. James encounters such things - he fights the evil and his hallucinations are becoming a reality.

 

let's talk about Tara, a girl whom is the daughter of Chris and Alessa White. the intro was already recognized as you got the inspiration from my favorite game - Silent Hill. she wakes up in a mall after an weird nightmare, same as Heather Mason.

Tara looks like a late teenage girl whom is only entering adulthood, but what i could include in this is to make symbolism about her. did she take it from her father? her mother is an asylum as mentioned (could be inspired from Silent Hill: Origins,

due to Travis' mother remaining in an asylum and considered her child as a demon) and it ACTUALLY shows the same here.

 

let's explain this - Tara is also affected by the book, with her hallucinations - as the game's script, if you know how to shoot and aim properly you'll get my point. Alessa (Tara's mother) could be affected by early pregnancy years, but this is set 24 years later.; Tara would have been born after the killing of Albert Wayne, so Tara is entering early adulthood years. (20-30 years of age) and would probably begin to understand what's affecting her. seemingly as from my perspective, Tara could be the reincarnation of her mother (this is uncommon) as they both knew how to shoot, are an assistant (Alessa is an assistant to Chris, Tara is an assistant to James); that's what i've got to say - yes, it may be short but what i suggest for you is to do this:

 
  • involve more symbolism and the backstory of the both protagonists,
  • get the player to do an explainable puzzle (at least one) and reference the book, like its words are becoming a reality (you could add some way of literature)

 you could basically test the player's intelligence by simply explaining a puzzle in some sort of an understandable way. i'm waiting for more missions, since this one seems a very good sequel.

Okay due to the fact that this is pinned and I don't wanna be that asshole of a designer who dont report n sh*t....

Imma keep you updated.

So this is work in progress. Back in September, there was a plan to release Episode 3, but lost motivation - went through a breakup, fell into massive depression.
Then later in December, was going to release both Ep3 and Ep4, but another problem came up - my HDD is dying and its still dying.

Then 2020 started with a bang.

Anyways, I'm slowly working towards it, got all scripts written down, now if my HDD worked properly I'd get sh*t done. Moving and reinstalling everything onto my brand new SSD would be a pain in the ass, plus I bought it mainly for Windows only and that I wouldn't BSOD whenever I have to work.

Also I am working on like 8 more projects at the same, I truly believe in them and I gotta' get them done. Hopefully this month I will release both Ep3 and Ep4 cuz my city's under quarantine cuz of that flu thing that stole the beer name
and I cant go out drinking cuz everybody be panickin like some damn bitches, influenced by the media and fake news

aight

At least you're still making progress, Leon. I thought this was dead for sure!

 

I wish you a huge amount of luck for this project and 8 more projects you're working on with. I'm surely waiting for all of them, and i'm excited to see the Ep3 and Ep4 of this MP. I hope they're really masterpiece of your creations!

Okay so everything was going like a piece of cake.

 

Then one day, a dumbass like me turns on GTA:SA and was about to finish things up and get it ready for release, record a trailer n sh*t.... I ended up corrupting the mission files, THE ONLY files.

 

That means I gotta redo everything from scratch, even a f*ckin' boss battle. Goddamn it. I hate myself
