"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.

Features:

  • 20 different battle stances, including two-handed and dual-wielding
  • 10 weapon classes covering both short-range and long-range weaponry
  • Guide and protect your companion – Aether, the Indigo child

November 10th 2017, For Immediate Release

Fall of Light releases on Mac App Store and adds new languages for PC!


PRAGUE, Czech Republic, November 10th 20171C is pleased to announce that Fall of Light has been released on the Mac App Store. This story-driven dungeon crawler, set in a world consumed by darkness, combines a solid Souls-like experience, captivating atmosphere, a deep story and original visuals. Originally released on Steam and other digital stores in September, it will now also benefit from two more languages in its localization pack – Portuguese and Simplified Chinese. We believe that new and current fans in these regions will appreciate the possibility of enjoying Fall of Light in their native tongue.

Fall of Light takes the player into a dark world, in which an old warrior leads his daughter towards the last remnants of sunlight. Only together are they strong enough to defeat the enemies born from the Shadow. The lack of light, in combination with the stylized graphics, underline the game’s grim atmosphere, both in the world above and the one below – the birthplace of the evil threatening to end the Era of Men.

"Quite a bit like Dark Souls then, but with a touch of Ico to it" (Rock, Paper, Shotgun)

“It may not light the world on fire, but this dark gem is certainly worth your time.” (KeenGamer)


The Mac App Store version of Fall of Light brings the title even closer to users of the Apple platform, while certifying compatibility at the same time. It has been made available in partnership with MacPlay, an experienced Apple publisher, and 1C is looking forward to bringing more exciting titles from its portfolio to the platform.

The media are welcome to request review keys through pr@1cpublishing.eu or Keymailer.

Hi RuneHeads. I played the demo and think I may have completely missed how weapon stances work? Are they passive based on the weapon you are using or do you have to actively switch between stances with player input? I may have to play again if stances are in the demo and I missed them.

In any case, this is a lovely world and I find Aether to be a great character. Beautiful art, gloomy atmosphere, challenging but manageable enemies, and overall good combat. I had some gripes with the hammer and how difficult it was to use, but the sword was great. I'm not a huge fan of Dark Souls style games so this isn't exactly within the genre I enjoy most - but the emotional attachment to Aether and having a companion really changes the feel of it in a positive way.

Here is a Let's Play I did of the demo: Youtu.be

Congrats on release day! For a small independent team you guys have really done wonders!
