Update: Ghost of a Tale has surpassed its €45,000 Indiegogo goal with an ending tally of €48,700.

Original story: Lionel "Seith" Gallat may not have any experience in video game development, but he's a veteran animator who's worked on such films as The Prince of Egypt, The Road to El Dorado, SharkTale, and more recently Despicable me, where he served as animation director.
