About This Game

Of all places, Hope's navigator brought me here, to this moon, twenty light years from Earth. She's damaged almost beyond repair, my copilot is missing, and I barely recognize myself. Orbiting a dead planet and punished by a brutally hot sun, my mission log holds just one objective: PLANT THE SEEDS.

Anew: The Distant Light is a single-player adventure across a massive, open game world. Explore, battle, and puzzle through exotic and often surreal environments. Seek out game-changing equipment, upgrades, and vehicles to expand your options for combat and travel. Discover exotic creatures and intelligent life, unlock the power of Materiel, and repair your home ship. Locate your missing copilot and find yourself. Complete your mission.

This is a game for those who love to explore and solve mysteries, enjoy skill-based combat, and appreciate visual storytelling that doesn't interrupt gameplay.

Game Features:

  • Massive game world to explore, filled with diverse environments, strange life forms, puzzles, and surprises.
  • Find your own path with nonlinear gameplay.
  • Diverse ways of getting around: climbing, swimming, jetpacking, skating, swinging, jumping across planetoids with their own gravity, and more.
  • Wildly different and powerful vehicles that you can pilot: giant mechs, alien tanks, dune buggies, rockets, and flying saucers.
  • Massive Hope home ship evolves with you and is a playable zone unto itself.
  • Discover unique, game-changing weapons and equipment.
  • Collect exotic microchips and optimize your suit's programming for your play style or to overcome a specific challenge.
  • Alien moon rotates under a blazing hot sun, creating a cycle of changing hazards, enemies, and rewards.
  • A unique story communicated solely through visuals, sound, and music.
  • Dynamic music and original score by award-winning composer Wilbert Roget, II.
  • High skill cap (this doesn't mean super hard, just that there is headroom for skilled players to show off).
  • Many dozens of hours of gameplay.
  • Tight player controls and a very agile hero, designed from day one for analog twin stick play.
