Embers has confirmed a release date for its action-adventure game Strayed Lights, which will release on Nintendo Switch.

Set in a mystical and ruinous world, you play as an unbalanced being of light and darkness which seeks transcendence.

You must explore a land of otherworldly ruins and glowing trees, mastering the game’s combat flow to evolve and help soothe the souls of otherwise daunting adversaries who are tormented by their own inner demons.

With an immersive, non-dialogue-based narrative and a hand-painted-inspired art direction, Grammy award-winning composer Austin Wintory has penned a meditative and evocative soundtrack.

“Strayed Lights will be an unforgettable experience for action-adventure fans of all ages when it releases across most modern gaming platforms in a few weeks,” promises Embers co-founder and creative director Alexandre Arramon.

“From a combat system designed to be easy to learn but challenging to master to an intricate universe based on emotions that everyone can feel connected to, we put our heart and soul into our first game. We’re all extremely proud of the outcome and can’t wait to share it with the world soon. In the meantime, we’re excited for fans to get their first hands-on time with the game at this year’s PAX East.”

The developer has outlined the game’s key features as below:

  • Harness Energy In Combat: Challenge rogue shadow creatures in fast-paced, rewarding combat. Use a fluid mix of parries and dodges to absorb their energy levels until you can unleash an ultra energy attack. Shift your light from blue to orange in sync with enemies using timed parries, then push energy back at them in vivid finishers.
  • Confront Creatures Within And Without: Monsters pursue you across otherworldly regions of mists, tall trees and luminescent ruins. Enjoy evocative boss fights with colossal shadow creatures gone rogue, as well as rhythmic duels with a variety of eerie creatures.
  • Grow And Ascend: Build up a unique character that can harness energy to let loose bold attacks. Unlock new abilities and grow from a tiny light to a pseudo-mystical entity imbued with vivid powers.
  • Explore A Mysterious Land: Strayed Lights is set in a dark and oneiric world that is as vivid as it is mysterious. Journey alongside a haunting soundtrack that reflects states of feeling in creatures you encounter created by Austin Wintory – composer behind Journey, ABZÛ, and The Banner Saga series.

Strayed Lights will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 25th April 2023.
