ETD Trading Cards

Dear friends!

First, we would like to express our deep gratitude for you supporting our first project — Escape the Darkness. Gamers from all around the world obtain it! We are happy to read your reviews: some of your ideas will be brought to life in new, more exciting and larger scale projects.

The most popular question you ask is if we introduce trading cards to Escape the Darkness. The thing is — the recent change in the associated Steam policies requires a game to pass a certain sales threshold to enable this feature. We have already prepared trading cards and as soon as we reach the required sales result — they will appear in Steam!

Stay with us — a lot of fun is on the horizon!

Yours sincerely,
Indie Ninjas team.

About This Game

Escape the Darkness is an adventure Endless Runner game. You are Beralt, one of the three brothers born in a magnificent kingdom of Cyvia. The brothers grew as fierce warriors and were always together until the fate separated them. Later on, yet again fighting the undead, the youngest brother made a fatal mistake. This is how this story begins...


  • atmospheric and mysterious setting;
  • nice-looking graphics;
  • simple character controls;
  • exciting and dynamic gameplay;
  • detailed history of the world;
  • curious easter eggs;
  • authentic soundtrack.

Unusual game mechanics you’ll see in EtD are not bugs — they are features.

No one knows where a tricky road of adventures can lead…

In the world where dangerous adventures are a fact of life, three brothers were born. They lived together until the eldest one (his name is still a mystery) got a message from beyond. One night he secretly left his home. They say he has become a demonologist, but no one can confirm that for sure.

Later Zeralt, the middle brother, made his way to the Misty Lands. He actually decided to do that because he lost his beloved one — she perished in the paws of an unknown monstrosity. Locals say that Zeralt wants to make a deal with the dark side to return both of his dearest to life.

The youngest brother, Beralt, was into travelling. The most of his «travelling» though was visiting inns and brothels infamous all over Cyvia. This still made him a strong and intelligent warrior, a defender of his lands.

One day, fighting the undead, Beralt made a fatal mistake. Vettlaff, a dying beast slain by Beralt’s sword, emitted something… unearthly. It easily disarmed Beralt and charmed him with a mighty dark spell. He could do nothing else but flee, run in terror, run for his life…

Escape the Darkness is the first project of the Indie Ninjas company. We’ve carefully plotted the story, threw in a handful of references, gave birth to original game mechanics, amassed our party by adding famous streamers to our companion rooster and translated our creation into many wondrous languages. The preparations for the journey have been completed — now go on and have fun in the comfortable game world we have created for you.

Thank you for being our swords in the darkness!
