“Aeterna Noctis promises to be a gigantic adventure. If you like Metroidvania games and good challenges, you have every reason to mark December on your calendars and not take your eyes off Aeterna Noctis.”
HobbyConsolas

“With a deep knowledge of the workings of the genre and a particular approach that stands out for an outstranding visual quality and a challenging and satisfying mechanical framework, we are not afraid to describe Aeterna Noctis as a potential outstranding representative of her line.”
AreaJugones

“The next Spanish Indie to keep track of. Aeterna Noctis looks great, is fun, and wont's disappoint metroidvania gamers. Who knows if he will repeat the Blasphemous pitch in 2019?”

About This Game



Aeterna Noctis is a challenging 2D hand-drawn action platformer, a Metroidvania with thrilling combat that will keep you on the edge of your seat and heart-stopping platform sections that will put your skills to the  test. Play as the King of Darkness and explore 16 connected areas in an epic journey to regain your powers. 





Unnumbered years ago, the supreme god Chaos created the Universe and the world of Aeterna. After populating it with different races and creatures, he appointed powerful rulers to govern them and show them the way. But soon they turned against their Creator, seeking to take the world for themselves; and gathered their subjects in two groups that fought each other -- and thus gave rise to war, death and hatred.



The all-powerful Chaos was angered, and in His terrible wrath He cast a terrible curse upon the rebellious leaders. He named them King of Darkness and Queen of Light, and condemned them to keep fighting each other forever, until the end of time. Not even death would free them from this doom, for Chaos granted them the Gift of Immortality -- so that even if one managed to defeat the other, they would be reborn, and regain their powers to continue their eternal war.
