What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is in a constant state of being worked on, but I feel as if there's enough content to gather a review from the community. I would like to stress this however, it is an incomplete experience. The early access upload is to give an idea of what's to come in the game and allow users to decide if they like it. It'll be important to gather community feedback of what's not working early, to allow changes to occur in a timely fashion before the full release of the game. If you want a full game, do NOT buy this now. Wait, and wish list the project so you know when the release is available.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I'm hoping once high school ends, and college is about to start, I'll have time during the summer to make the finishing level designs to allow the game to be fully released. The summer of 2020 should be an exciting one, and one I can't wait to share with the rest of you.”

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

“The full game will contain a story from start to end, with multiple missions and side quests, all intertwining to create one intense, story driven experience you'll be sure you don't want to miss.
I hope for nothing less of an experience I'd be proud to call my own. I'm more than excited to show off what I've done, and I can't wait to share that excitement with you all. I want this to be everything I promise and more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access game is not a full game and should not be treated as such. The early access game contains 30 minutes or so of in game content to allow you to explore and get a real feel of what the game will be like upon release. It contains the bare minimum of a boss fight, some regular missions, a decent sized introduction, and the ability to explore some side quests. Unlock abilities, and fight off against a set of creatures like you've never seen before.”

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

“I plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features within the game. It just didn't feel right to charge full price for a game that wasn't quite up to the standards of what I was originally hoping to release.”

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

“I feel as if I've always been good at incorporating the ideas of the community whenever possible. Whether it's a youtuber like Jonas Tyroller, or a simple spectator on the forums, I've always tried my hardest to make sure everyone's ideas are incorporated or if it's not possible to incorporate them, I explain it to them. Feel free to make a review, post in the discussions, or even email me directly with feedback as to how you'd like your ideas incorporated in the game and I'll get back to you all as soon as I can with new updates and brand new features.”

Steam Greenlight

The Changes

A couple of years ago on Steam Greenlight, this game was just a simple, walking puzzle platformer that occasionally used mouse clicks to help originate itself from the world. Since then, the game added, quests, missions, abilities, level ups, enemies, and a whole story to go along with this simple puzzle idea, with it's unique art style, to help shine a new light on what was once dark. Without having done this, the game would be a small, unfulfilling project that really brought nothing to the table. This all wouldn't have been done if the community hadn't giving the game a chance. So for that, thank you.

Chaos grasped the seemingly pleasant planet of Harrand. What was once peaceful, and quite, became a breeding ground to all that was evil in this world. An explosion from a distant mountain, almost visible to all, changed everything. At first they thought it was a volcanic eruption. But eruptions like those, never caused the wildlife of the land to turn evil. While others took refuge, some suffered an unfortunate fate. No one was the same after that day. Family's were torn apart and villages were burnt to the ground.
Legend broke loose of a chosen one. A creature immune to the essence who was said to have the capability, to save the world.
Now you must fight off against the darkness, being the only immunity left. With only the help of your tiny friend, embark on an epic journey to save the planet you once called home. Whether you're taking down giants, or fighting off against effected wildlife, you must make it to the top of the mountain, and restore peace to these lands.

Find abilities you'd never discovered before, gain an upper hand against your enemies, and meet new friends along the way! This world is your's for the taking in this amazing RPG experience you'll be left asking for more!
