Every ten years, a sacrifice must be made to protect your people from the Abyss – a place that is worshipped as it is feared. You were chosen to be thrown into the darkness, and while no one has ever safely returned perhaps you will be able to achieve the impossible.
Welcomed upon your arrival by Nyx, you have survived living alone with its boulders for ten years. With his help, you must try to reach a portal that could finally let you escape the depth of the Abyss in this Metroidvania-inspired 2D action-platformer.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:
- A 2D action-platformer with a dark and gloomy style: Elypse is a 2D Metroidvania combining platforming and action that takes place in the depths of an infernal world.
