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)
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.

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!
