I have been writing about Light Fall for months now. Its a quirky 2D side scroller that I feel in love with at first sight. Its beautiful and has that brutal difficulty curve I love in my platformers. But, thats not all it has. It also has a great story, and today that story finally gets to see the light.

Light Fall follows the story of a young boy and his quest through Numbra, the land of eternal night, to be reunited with his dearest friend who vanished in the darkness. With the aid of the magical Shadow Core — a player-controllable platform, follow his courageous journey across an entire continent, braving war and ancient enemies, led only by a glimmer of a hope.

Stryx the old and grumpy owl, will be there as well; but depending on his mood, he’ll either offer useful advice or bluntly mock the boy’s failures. No one said this would be easy…
