Publisher Mastiff has today announced that it’s picking up Faerie Afterlight, a puzzle-platformer by Indonesian developer Clay Game Studio. An official description reads; ‘In Faerie Afterlight, the player controls Kimo and Wispy – a lonely creature from the depths and a young fairy– who must traverse the wistful world of Lumina to gather missing beams of light and save the world from unending darkness. While exploring hidden ruins and facing frightening enemies, the unlikely duo finds warmth in unexpected places and even more unexpected allies!’
Blending puzzle-platforming and metroidvania elements, this stylised adventure boasts tight controls, rich story elements and a beautiful soundtrack. “Clay Game Studio has done the impossible and breathed life into the puzzle platformer,” says Bill Swartz, president and CEO of Mastiff. “Faerie Afterlight not only features a stunning, picturesque world filled with surreal moments but also pushes all the right gameplay buttons – from jumping mechanics to the ability to control enemies. The Clay Game Studio team is incredibly talented, dedicated, and a joy to work with. Having a stunner such as Faerie Afterlight as your first project together makes things even better.”
Faerie Afterlight will have you use special abilities to move walls and platforms, take abilities from bosses, befriend enemies and search for secrets when it releases this summer. No firm date has been announced yet, but you can wishlist the game here and watch the trailer here.
