Brutal Hack N Slash Game There Is No Light Releases Demo On Itch
Seems like developers keep upping the ante in regards to how dark and grim their fantasy universes can be. There Is No Light is a game by developers Hypertrain. Best known for Police Stories and the upcoming Black Book, this latest project is a bit of a departure from their usual style.
There Is No Light is a dark fantasy game set in a post-apocalyptic world. Humanity has been all but eradicated by a demonic invasion, with the survivors driven underground. You play as a person born to some kind of cult, whose wife and child are taken. Your goal is to “interrupt the Ascension ritual, no matter what.” But there is so much more to the lore than that.
There Is No Light is a fast paced hack n slash. As the Kickstarter page reads:
In the gameplay core lies an aggressive fighting style. It resembles a deadly dance, where any mistake could be your last, but avoiding battle is not an option. A Rage system builds up when damage is inflicted on enemies and the environment, the hero can use special weapon abilities in order to gain an advantage in battle.
There Is No Light is projected to be finished sometime in late 2021. The Kickstarter has already raised over 2/3rds of the goal, with 25 days remaining.
