Fresh Gameplay Preview Accompanies Showcases Nocturnal Steam Next Fest Demo

Indie developer Sunnyside Games in partnership with Dear Villagers have released a demo for their upcoming flame-wielding platformer Nocturnal as part of Steam Next Fest from February 6th – 13th at 10am PST. This demo is a beast too, offering roughly a third of the full game. Nocturnal is a game built around speedrunning, so see how fast you can clear its opening act!

Coming to PC and consoles later this Spring, Nocturnal is an action exploration odyssey that tasks players with repelling a nefarious mist as it enshrouds an ancient isle. After a difficult journey across a troubled sea, Ardeshir, a soldier of the Enduring Flame, returns to his home island of Nahran. Engulfed in a shadowy mist, Ardeshir must rely on fire to extinguish the sinister forces that have overtaken his native land. Flame has many uses here. It can ward off the Mist, ignite the scenery, turn on machinery, and be used to burn beings of dark magic impervious to conventional weaponry. But be forewarned: one cannot breathe in the Mist, so you’ll have to use your wits as you intuit new ways to keep it at bay. Get a glimpse of its fiery, frenetic combat in the new Gameplay Trailer below:

Grow more powerful by offering collected ashes to the flame. Gain powers that help you expand your life force, hold your breath longer or sacrifice ashes in hopes of gaining new powers along the way.
Nocturnal encourages challengers to brave its beautiful ruins with a host of optional trials. Those seeking the glory of a true challenge can enable a host of speedrunning features, like faster transitions, skippable cutscenes, and a pausable timer. Only the fiercest warriors will try their hand at Permadeath Mode, where you only have one life to undertake the entire journey.
