What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I'm a solo indie game developer, and I've been working on this project for a long time. I now need feedback from actual players to make sure the game is entertaining and works properly. Eventually, this will also help improve the design, balance, features and more.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The full version will be released within 3 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will be thoroughly tested and will have approximately 25% more optional content:
  • New game+ with the option of playing as Kuroko.
  • A few more optional NPCs, events, battles, items and mini-games.
  • A bit more overall polish.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently fully playable:
  • The main story, battles and events are implemented - including 5 boss battles and 2 mini-games.
  • A good chunk of the optional content is there - including a few NPCs, events and items.
  • The main systems such as the battles, exploration, field menu and cut-scenes are working.
  • Additional features such as achievements, stats, cloud saves etc. are good to go.

A first playthrough would take about 3 hours - depending on the completion level.

Also, even though I did my best testing everything, the game definitely needs more testing by players on various hardware configurations.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will probably rise by around 50% after Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I welcome everyone to report bugs or technical issues on the discussions in the community hub. I'm also open to any feedback and suggestions about adding new features or improving the game on every aspect - within the limits of my skills and resources.

Thank you for your support!”

About This Game

Light Fairytale is a 3D turn-based Japanese-style RPG set in a dying underground world, ruled by a fierce and powerful empire.

The goal of this project is to bring back the immersion and emotion of 90's era JRPGs, but with modern graphics and gameplay systems.

A long time ago, the world was prosperous. Technology and sciences were quite advanced, and people lived in great pleasure and casual excess. However, this proved their undoing when the world, seemingly in an instant, was destroyed as they knew it forever.

Desperate and forlorn, the survivors of civilization resorted to fleeing to the only place on the planet where it was still possible to live - underground. And so there they stayed, and survived.

Thousands of years later, the history of the surface has been forgotten, left to dust, and the wealth of the past lost to time. Even the very word sky has lost all meaning...

And then, a young boy named Haru wakes one day, fleeting dreams of vast green plains and a clear blue void locked in his memory; deep rooted, unshakeable... and driving him to know just what he saw.

Now, he must embark on a great adventure in order to discover the mysteries of the lost world, confronting the rulers of this dystopian society and beyond with the aid of a mysterious, silver haired girl...

Light Fairytale will span over multiple episodes. A long journey awaits!


A bit lazy and a lot naive, Haru nonetheless is a kind soul and knows how to handle himself if push comes to shut. His noble heart can move people to do things they'd never dreamed themselves capable.

She might be short and cute (sometimes), but don't let that fool you: Kuroko is exceedingly capable in battle and always willing to step up. She's also fond of technology - maaaybe a bit too much so.
