EarthNight, a hand-painted platformer about surviving the dragon apocalypse, will launch for Switch in addition to its previously announced PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac versions in 2019, developer Cleaversoft announced. EarthNight will be released in Fall 2019!
DRAGONS HAVE TAKEN OVER THE EARTH.
It's up to a 14-year-old high-schooler and a freelance photographer to stop them.
EarthNight is an illustrated procedurally generated platformer that takes place in a dystopian future just after the dragon apocalypse. Humans have been exiled to space, forced to live in orbit above the planet. But Sydney and Stanley have had enough! They’ve decided to skydive back down to the planet, taking out as many dragons as they can along the way.
Each run begins in space. You must traverse five layers of the atmosphere on the perilous journey down to Earth alternating between skydiving and running on the backs of dragons. Your path to EarthNight will always be different and riddled with danger.
- Jump and dash your way across the backs of dragons on your way down to Earth in classic 2D side-scrolling action.
- Unlock more than 25 gameplay-altering powerups that will aid you on your journey as you slay dragons and discover secrets.
- Experience a unique run no matter how many times you play thanks to near-infinite variations of hand designed, procedurally generated levels.
- • Explore five layers of the atmosphere with more than 40 enemies, more than 15 unique dragons and hundreds of scraps and items, all brought to life by artist Mattahan, who meticulously painted each of EarthNight’s 10,000+ frames of art and animation.
- Enjoy an original, exciting soundtrack intertwined into gameplay, including more than 20 songs written and performed by chiptune musician Chipocrite.
