About

Inlight is an intense single-player action game for PC/MAC (Steam) and Nintendo Switch.

In this action/shooter game, the sake of your tribe lies solely in your hands. Your focus, accuracy, and patience will be put to the ultimate test as you cleanse the world from its curse. Defeat legions of foes with your spells, upgrade your skills, unlock new abilities to fit your playstyle and delve into the mysterious past of the island of Az'kalar.

Only light must prevail, will you stand up to the challenge?

What can you expect?

  • An Immersive universe with meticulously hand-crafted 2D graphics and animations
  • A well-optimized game running smoothly at 60 FPS
  • Different difficulty settings allowing everyone to enjoy the game regardless of their skill or patience
  • 2D hand-painted cinematics 
  • An original blend between genres!

A spiritual sequel

The universe and concept of Inlight are based on "Towaga", a conceptual mobile game we released 2 years ago. Inlight could be seen as the spiritual successor of Towaga, but the games are way different in many aspects. In short, Towaga was the first sketch while Inlight is the final product.

The whole game is revolving around a wave-system progression and dynamic world shifting. You must resist, advance and slay the creatures on your path to journey through Metnal's nightmares and defeat him, thus revealing what happened to the island.

In order to achieve such task, you've been gifted three spells. Casting them will cost you mana, so make sure you don't abuse it. 

THE BRIGHT BEAM: Your basic spell, cast it by moving the joystick to slay foes around you.

THE HALO BURST: Your last hope to save you from tight situations. Upgrade this spell and add various effects to it as you progress.

THE BRIGHT BLAST: The ultimate spell for crowd control. Upgrade and customize it as you see fit.

(Note: playable with PS4, Xbox, Switch Controller or Mouse)

World shifting

Your journey will take you to ancient shrines and ruins via a dynamic world shifting system.

Inlight's story takes place on the island of Az'kalar, fallen prey to the scourge of the endless night. In the middle of the day the sky suddenly turned black, and creatures from the abyss poured into the realm of the living, wreaking havoc everywhere they set foot following the orders of their master, Metnal the Voidmonger.

Az'kalar's inhabitants were no match for the swarming terror Metnal had unleashed, and soon only two survivors remained. Hidden beyond the Voidmonger's reach, Chimù and his mentor Kurro devise a plan to stop the evil god's hordes and bring the light back on the island.

Content (masks, Outfits, Items...)

We aim at creating a world filled with mysteries, ancient legends, and odd relics. A plethora of artifacts, outfits and codex entries are to be discovered throughout your adventure.

CODEX OF ITEMS:

2D cinematics

Animated cutscenes give life to the island and reveal the nebulous past of Az'kalar (spoiler-free example below)

Music previews

Inlight's music combines orchestral and electronic influences, giving a fresh twist to old-school game audio while maintaining a deep, mysterious atmosphere. To match the action of the game, the music follows your actions, dynamically evolving throughout your run.

Why we need funding

With Inlight we will offer you the best game experience we can create. But working on it in our spare time, as we are now, is impending our capacity to bring the game to the next level and make it a truly great game.

With your support, we'll be able to speed up the development, hire a new programmer, and dramatically enhance the experience.

Money surely helps, but if you're interested to see Inlight brought to life and can't afford to contribute to this campaign don't hesitate to share, post, and speak to your friends about our game. Every bit helps!

Who we are

We are Gabriel, Mathieu, Dario, and Daniel. The four of us work in Lausanne, Switzerland. We're a tiny indie development studio dedicated to creating hand-crafted and challenging gaming experiences for everyone to enjoy.

Risks and challenges

The project is in an advanced stage of development, and we have already overcome the hardest issues during the early stages of production.

If you decide to follow us on this journey the game will be delivered as intended. We are developing games full-time since 2013 and our priority is to continue to make games.

We obviously can't guarantee you'll enjoy our game, but rest assured that it will be made with love and a careful attention to detail.
