1C is pleased to present Fall of Light in a new gameplay trailer that sheds more light on this story-driven dungeon crawler set in a world consumed by darkness. Developed by RuneHeads, the game will come to Windows PC and Mac OS on September 28, 2017 via Steam and other digital stores.
Help Nyx and his daughter Aether try to find their way along dimly-lit pathways in a fight for every ray of light left in the world. The darkness materializes in front of them in the form of various vicious enemies, deadly traps and intricate puzzles. Only together are they strong enough to overcome their hardships, slash their enemies to pieces and enter the world below – the birthplace of the Shadow threatening to end the Era of Men. But is saving the whole world as important as the life of one old warrior’s daughter?
About the game
“In the beginning, there was only an excruciating, screaming void, wherein twisted souls writhed about, imprisoned in nothingness. Then the darkness was pierced by Luce, and with her came warmth and order. The time of men had begun, and would last many eras. But the 14th era is one of Darkness…”
As Nyx, an old, retired warrior, evade the Shadows and find your way through the crooked corridors of gloomy dungeons, navigate the treacherous pathways of the darkened overworld and fight emissaries of darkness in long-forgotten temples. Many puzzles and deadly traps stand between you and your goal – to bring your daughter Aether to the last place on the face of Earth that still sees light.
Inspired by games such as Dark Souls and ICO, Fall of Light rewards those who explore the world on their own and draw their own conclusions. Meet odd characters, search through every nook and cranny to unlock hidden secrets and learn more about the history and lore of the somber world around you. Pick your favorite combination of close-range weapons, crossbows and shields, determine your fighting stance and get ready to face hordes of crafty enemies. And above all, keep your daughter from harm, as she is the light piercing the darkness and the key to unlocking forbidden passages.
