Here’s an overview of the Magnetic Realms-developed game, via XSEED:
Exile’s End is a dark and futuristic 2D sidescroller offering adventure-style puzzles, tightly-controlled platforming, and dangerous extraterrestrials. The game was developed as an homage to early ’90s action-adventure PC games, drawing heavy gameplay inspiration from classics of the genre as well as thematic influence from ’80s sci-fi films and anime. Boasting uniquely stylized cutscenes, multiple endings, and an atmospheric soundtrack by Keiji Yamagishi of Ninja Gaiden and Tecmo Super Bowl fame, Exile’s End will have players investigate a massive, interconnected alien world and experience a story filled with ancient riddles and modern-day hubris. Backed by Japanese publisher Marvelous Inc. and originally released for Windows PC, Mac and Linux via Steam, Exile’s End is a collaboration between Tokyo-based indie game developer Matt Fielding and many talented local industry veterans, including art by staff from titles such as Secret of Mana, Mother 3 and more.
