Here is an overview of the game, via Bishop Games:
Light Fall follows the story of a young boy and his quest through Numbra, a mysterious universe where darkness prevails over light, to be reunited with his dearest friend who vanished in the night. With the aid of the magical Shadow Core and his companion Stryx the old and grumpy owl, follow his courageous journey across an entire continent, braving many challenges and foes standing in the way, led only by a glimmer of hope. Do you have what it takes to survive in perilous Numbra?
- The Ultimate Freedom: Control the Shadow Core, a magical box beneath your feet that can be used and controlled at will, to propel yourself into the air and move across the land in the way that you see fit to face the challenges of the game. With the Shadow Core, you become the master of your surroundings and create your own path.
- An Immersive Journey: Immerse yourself in Light Fall’s strange universe where darkness prevails over the light. Joining you on this adventure, Stryx the old and grumpy owl, will act as your sidekick and in-game narrator. Depending on his mood, he will either offer useful advice or bluntly mock your failures.
