EarthNight, a hand-drawn platformer set during the dragon apocalypse, has been released on Apple Arcade. The game will head to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC later this year.
Dragons have taken over the Earth. Now exiled to live in space colonies orbiting above the planet, humanity is searching for a way to reclaim their home. The task has fallen to an unlikely pair in the young student, Sydney, who wields ethereal super powers, and a swashbuckling freelance photographer, Stanley, who dive through the atmosphere to land on the dragons’ serpentine backs and run toward the beasts’ vulnerable heads.
Stanley and Sydney have varying approaches to dragon slaying. Sydney offers an acrobatic play style, possessing the ability to double jump as well as having an air dash at her disposal. Stanley, meanwhile, features separate high and long jumps that provide him with distinct opportunities to maintain momentum and navigate the treacherous gauntlets ahead.
Levels in EarthNight are procedurally-generated with multiple exits and tiers teeming with secrets, surprises, and other rewards for those who can manage to stay aloft. Collecting water, dragon eggs, and more trophies from defeated dragons will unlock upgrades to give Sydney and Stanley the tools that can help them on their journey back to the Earth’s surface.
EarthNight also features hand-drawn art by Paul “Manhattan” Davey and a soundtrack by Paul “Chipocrite” Weinstein. It is now available on iOS devices via Apple Arcade. For more information, visit the official website.
