Classic Style Adventure Emberlight Set For August

Quarter Onion Games Announce New Project – Emberlight

Indie Developers Quarter Onion Games have today announced their new project Emberlight, described by its creators as “a roguelike dungeon crawler that combines classic PC gameplay with a novel twist.”

Emberlight is a turn-based combat, dungeon exploration quest game, where players complete quests in the game of the Ember Order. Using your “Ember Powers” to progress, however, will corrupt the soul of your character.

“When we started designing Emberlight, we wanted something that pulled from both the nostalgia of games we loved in our past, as well as some of the styles of games we’ve greatly enjoyed in the present. We were huge fans of the Final Fantasy series, particular Final Fantasy X, while also having a blast playing games like Binding of Isaac, Darkest Dungeon and Slay the Spire. We saw a path where we could combine our nostalgia with the more modern roguelike elements in exciting and fun new ways.” – William Phelps, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Quarter Onion Games.

Emberlight is set to be released for PC on August 13th 2019. More information can be found on the Quarter Onion Games website. Future players of the game can also get updates by subscribing to the developer’s Discord channel.
