Mastiff has announced a partnership with Indonesian indie developer Clay Game Studio to publish the beautifully weird platformer Faerie Afterlight on Steam.
In Faerie Afterlight, the player controls Kimo and Wispy – a lonely creature from the depths and a young fairy – who must traverse the wistful world of Lumina to gather missing beams of light and save the world from unending darkness. While exploring hidden ruins and facing frightening enemies, the unlikely duo finds warmth in unexpected places and even more unexpected allies.
Faerie Afterlight is a Metroidvania at heart with level design that encourages exploration and repeated visits. This beautiful, stylized platformer boasts tight controls, rich story elements, and a moving soundtrack that will transport players to a world unlike any other.
“Clay Game Studio has done the impossible and breathed life into the puzzle platformer,” says Mastiff CEO Bill Swartz. “Faerie Afterlight not only features a stunning, picturesque world filled with surreal moments but also pushes all the right gameplay buttons – from jumping mechanics to the ability to control enemies.”
“The Clay Game Studio team is incredibly talented, dedicated, and a joy to work with. Having a stunner such as Faerie Afterlight as your first project together makes things even better,” Swartz adds.
Faerie Afterlight releases on Steam in late summer. A specific release date and pricing were not announced.
