Pre-order today via the game’s official website and receive the 120-page Strayed Lights digital art book plus the title’s soundtrack composed by the Grammy award-winning Austin Wintory for free.
In the new video, players will discover some of the glowing wildlife, treacherous environments, and merciless monsters that lie at the heart of Strayed Light’s meditative journey. The road to transcendence will require confrontation with eerie creatures that reside inside and outside the soul. Are you willing to open your eyes and take the first step?
In Strayed Lights, players will join an unbalanced being of light and darkness as it sets forth through a dreamlike world in order to achieve awakening. As the being grows from a lost child to a determined adult, players will venture across misty mountains, dark caves, broken cities, and luminescent ruins. Violent shadow creatures will stand in the tiny light’s path, but these monsters are meant to be soothed, not slaughtered.
Strayed Lights will challenge players to confront the monsters through a dynamic color-coordinated combat system. Shift between orange and blue states of being to parry enemy attacks and absorb their energy. Counter, strike, and parry with precision to unleash powerful bursts of energy capable of inflicting incredible damage. Master the moving masterpiece that is Strayed Light’s combat flow to quell a monster’s unrest and free them from their inner demons.
“Strayed Lights is a story about soothing overwhelming emotions corrupting us and restoring balance,” says Alexandre Arramon, co-founder and creative director at Embers. “In a few weeks, we hope action adventure fans of all ages will be able to relate to the tiny light’s journey of awakening and embark on their introspective odyssey. With an immersive soundtrack composed by the talented Austin Wintory and art that evokes a hand-painted feel in 3D, Strayed Lights is being made to inspire people everywhere to have a moment to feel their emotions.”
