Get set to enter a dark and mysterious world as D3PUBLISHER lights up PC and consoles with new indie adventure, Gleamlight.
Available now across Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam Gleamlight is a gorgeous indie twist on the traditional 2D platformer. Set in a fantasy world, shrouded by night, players must navigate a range of illustrated 2D levels beautifully constructed in stained glass. IN order to bring light to this mysterious world, players must take control of a mystical sword but they won’t be wielding it. You are the sword, slashing, jumping, and cutting through a range of different enemies as you slowly begin to learn your true power.
A Different Story
This isn’t the only unusual thing about Gleamlight, as you slowly uncover the beautiful artistry veiled in shadow, you’ll want to pay attention to more than just the backdrops. Gleamlight doe not usher players through a traditional narrative. Instead, it dispenses with the traditional user interface, instructions, and tutorials. Heck, even your companion in this adventure is silent. With no explanation as to who you are and why you are an ancient and mighty word, gamers will learn the secrets of Gleamlight just as the character does, encouraging the player to explore and understand this story made of glass.
While there might not be much to talk about, it is definitely worth listening to Gleamlight. The distinctive aesthetic is joined by a soundtrack composed by Japanese games music composer Kumi Tanioka who has recorded scores for Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles and Ragnarok Odyssey. Gleamlight isn’t exactly easy to describe and that is probably one of its most appealing aspects. If you want to get a better grip of this majestic old sword and its quest for light then take a quick look at the new launch trailer above or head over to the official Gleamlight website before grabbing it on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch for $19.99 / €16.99 / £14.99.
