What is Afterlight?
Afterlight is a puzzle-adventure game with environmental narrative in 2.5D. You play as Xin, an astronaut stranded during a mission on Titan.
After losing the rest of her crew in an accident, she will be forced to complete the mission in solitary as she discovers disturbing events that will question her perception of reality.
What makes Afterlight so awesome?
Afterlight is designed to convey emotions through unique situations and challenges, to tell a story of overcoming psychological disorders. One of our strengths is the relationship of our protagonist with her partner: a drone with AI specialized in medical and psychological evaluation.
The visual aesthetics are inspired by the architectural study developed by Lebbeus Woods. The majority of his explorations deal with the design of systems in crisis: the order of the existing being confronted by the order of the new. His designs are politically charged and provocative visions of a possible reality; provisional, local, and charged with the investment of their creators.
When it will be released?
Sometime in Q3 of 2020.
Do you have publisher?
Not yet, we are developing with our own resources and private investment. We are willing to sign with a publisher in a future to have a better product for all of you.
What platforms will the game release on?
Our main goal is Windows, Mac, and Linux. If we are capable of sign with a publisher or get more resources we will port the game to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Will Afterlight be localized to my language?
The main language will be English. We would love for the game to be translated into your language, but it will depend on the resources we have.
What about VR support?
We have no plans to release the game in VR right now.
What about the soundtrack?
We have a music composer and a sound designer working on an unique and beautifully crafted soundtrack.
