Fading Shadows sees the player faced with the challenge of saving Erwyn, whose death, according to the millennia-old prophecy, will allow evil master Gardal to breach the gates of the Castle of Heaven, the supreme fortress built to protect the world from the forces of darkness. Erywn's soul has been enclosed in a protective orb by his clairvoyant sister, Aira, and the orb must now be returned to the dungeon where Erwyn is captive, using a magical beam of light.
The player must guide an orb through 40 captivating levels by controlling a magical beam of light. This orb contains the soul of a young boy, and it is the player's job to rescue the boy by safely leading the orb to the Castle of Heaven. Pass through swamps, travel over mountains, visit castles and explore deserted cities on your quest to save the world from the forces of darkness.
Each level will require the player to change the state of the orb to glass, wood or metal, and control it with the appropriate force from the beam of light. To proceed past the Dark Castle level the player must turn all the disks of the pentagram towards the gate and place the orb in the centre. But how do you turn the disks? A closer look reveals a number of switches scattered throughout the level, and these can be activated using the orb or the beam of light.
Fading Shadows is to be released in February 2008.
