Free Lightstep Chronicles Wallpaper Available

Hello everyone,

We've been thinking 'bout you, so we made you a neat little wallpaper.
You're free to download it and use it as you like.

The wallpaper features Lightstep Chronicles key art - there's ALEPH, the emotionally unstable AI who you'll be chatting up throughout the game, hovering in the Amarok spaceship interior. The game art is futuristic sci-fi art deco, hope it shows here.

Happy to have you on board!

This week at Lightstep Chronicles - November 30, 2018

Hello everyone,

We'd like to thank you all for being here for our first ever Steam release, we're very excited about the whole thing and want to make a good impression.

Since Lightstep Chronicles is still in its pre-release phase and you can't really compare it to anything else that we've done, we'd like to honor your faith in us with regular development updates. Like, short updates, and you can ask us to further elaborate on anything you'd like to know more about. :)

It's good to start with a proper presentation of the game, and we'll let our FIRST TEASER do the talking:


Lightstep Chronicles is a text-based adventure set in a very interactive environment (it plays out a bit like a point'n'click because of this). You're Captain Cain, hijacked by an alien spaceship, facing off with its AI host which is apparently going through some emotional baggage. The text that you did see was ALEPH on a bad day.

With a release coming up in less than three months, we have a lot to finishing to do. This week, we have been working on:
-completing in-game dialogue
-replacing the placeholder UI with the final UI
-polish (the first two-thirds of the game are pretty much complete and we're focusing on getting the last few chapters to this point)

Next week, we will work on:
-adding all the game locations
-editing the final cut-scenes
-text editing

We'll be back with an update in two weeks, see you then!

About This Game


Lightstep Chronicles is a dark sci-fi text-based adventure set in a universe where the passage of time is a relative thing.

You play as a military captain exploring an off-world underground crashsite. You discover an ancient spaceship of alien technology and imperial livery, and are then whisked away on an intergalactic adventure of trying to stay alive and relevant in a spaceship that clearly has a hidden agenda. At the heart of Lightstep Chronicles is a text-based adventure, allowing you to communicate with the ship's AI, a manic creature that seems to be at war with itself.

Lightstep Chronicles is set in stunning futuristic art deco off-world locations, sharing the universe of the Dark Horse Comics series Lightstep. The game focuses on the thin line between humanity and artificial intelligence, and the very nature of transcendence.
