Bishop Games, the Canadian indie games studio was gracious enough to offer us more insight into their captivating and upcoming 2D platformer, LIGHT FALL. Coming to Nintendo Switch in March 2018, the game will be available for Windows PC, Mac, PS4 and Xbox One, as previously announced. Bishop Games will be showcasing the first playable build of Light Fall on Nintendo Switch at Tokyo Game Show 2017 in the Indie Game Area from September 21-24, 2017.
In Light Fall, players will overcome platformer-based challenges by harnessing the power of the Shadow Core, a magical box beneath your feet that can be summoned at any time to propel yourself in the air. With Stryx the Night Owl as your companion and narrator, explore the forgotten world of Numbra where darkness prevails over light to embark on a quest to save its inhabitants and uncover a mysterious past. As you wander through the calm night of the Lunar Plain, venture into the Marshlands of Sorrow and face the exotic wildlife of the Vipera’s Forest, there you’ll encounter many outlandish characters, be it friends or foe.
“The versatile Nintendo Switch is a perfect fit for Light Fall and we’re looking forward to letting Tokyo Game Show attendees be the first to experience the game on the console,” said David Dion-Paquet, Co-founder and President of Bishop Games. “Light Fall brings a unique gameplay experience that is completely new and one-of-a-kind to traditional platformers. With the use of the Shadow Core, Light Fall redefines the platformer genre by effectively giving you dominion over the game’s actual platforms.”
