"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
  • Fight Shadows, soldiers of darkness and underworld bosses
  • Explore the overworld, scour dungeons and temples to gain and use special powers
  • Uncover many secrets and solve various environmental puzzles

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 they are 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.

As part of this free update for all existing Steam owners of Fall of Light, players can look forward to exploring a brand new dungeon, complete with a new boss, deadly traps, even-more-deadly enemies and weapons to collect. This joins a wealth of content that was previously exclusive to consoles, as well as more tweaks and quality of life changes than you can shake a sword at!

For a more detailed look at what Steam players can expect from the Darkest Edition update, along with a list of reasons this is a hack-and-slash adventure worth falling for, take a look below.

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!
