Rising Star Games bring the award winning puzzle game to your PlayStation 4 System
October 13, 2015 – Rising Star Games advises gamers to embrace the darkness today, as One Upon Light launches digitally for PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system across North America and Europe for $11.99
Developed by The Singapore University of Technology and Design SUTD Game Lab, One Upon Light is a devious, award winning top-down puzzler set in a world where darkness is your new best friend. There is but one simple rule – do not step into the light!
- Use the unique properties of light and shadow to explore and overcome obstacles.
- Employ the power of the Shadow Echo to ‘record’ shadows as they appear, temporarily locking them in place in order to progress.
- Visually charming and inspired by classic black and white cartoons, Once Upon Light is a true test of skill, brains and photophobia
One Upon Light has already garnered critical acclaim having been awarded the following prestigious accolades:
- Digital Life: Editor’s Choice 1st Runner-Up, 2015
- Famitsu: Indie Prize Winner, 2014
- 4Gamer.net: Indie Prize Winner, 2014
- IGF China: Best Game, 2013
One Upon Light Inspiration:
SUTD game designer, Justin Kang, took inspiration from his regular late night runs, using the shadows cast by street lights as his goal markers. Kang declares: “I felt that I was always ‘chasing shadows,’ so to speak, and got to thinking about how my environment and my perception of it would change if these shadows could be manipulated.” It was this initial lightbulb-over-the-head idea that sparked the birth of the game.
In order to shed some light on the game’s captivating premise, Rising Star Games has just released an illuminating new trailer:
