In the realm of side-scrolling adventure platformers, prepare yourself for a captivating journey like no other. Elden Pixels, the brilliant minds behind the upcoming game A Void Hope, have announced its launch for Switch and PC via Steam on February 29. Brace yourself for a night of rain, darkness, and a haunting experience that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
The city is crumbling, its inhabitants mere shells of their former selves. A tormented couple finds themselves caught in the midst of a waking nightmare, struggling to differentiate between reality and the horrors that plague their minds. Strangely enough, the origin of this chaos eludes them, slipping through their fingers like a forgotten dream.
A Void Hope is a short and immersive adventure, best enjoyed in a single sitting on a stormy night. Join the couple on their quest to find a cure for the mysterious affliction that ravages people's memories. As they navigate the treacherous streets and explore dilapidated buildings in a crumbling city, you'll be enchanted by Elden Pixels' exquisite retro-inspired pixel art style, which beautifully captures the decayed beauty of their surroundings.
Immerse yourself in the game's compelling mystery and carefully-crafted ambiance, supported by puzzle platforming mechanics. Solve intricate puzzles and discover hidden items as you traverse the city's perilous paths. Beware, for dangerous threats lurk in the shadows. However, conflict is not your goal in this narrative-driven adventure. Instead, unraveling the threads of the unknown becomes your primary focus. Explore the secrets of the city's physical and psychological spaces, delving into the depths of your struggling protagonists' minds.
A Void Hope's haunting aesthetic is further elevated by the collaboration between Elden Pixels and renowned synthwave artist Waveshaper, known for his work on the Furi soundtrack. His mesmerizing compositions will accompany you on your journey, intensifying the eerie and evocative landscapes at every step. The fusion of Waveshaper's music with the masterful sound design by Christian Björklund, the Audio Designer of Little Nightmares, and the captivating story by science fiction and horror writer Frida Windelhed, creates a chilling ambiance that is as emotionally gripping as it is visually stunning.
