'Emberlight' Reaches Beta head Of Next Month's Launch - Screens & Trailer

Emberlight is a roguelike dungeon crawler that combines classic PC gameplay with a novel twist.

Emberlight is a true roguelike dungeon crawler, set in a world where the Gods have given you a great gift - and a great curse. Explore procedurally generated dungeons as your party works to complete different quests in the name of the Ember Order. Conquer the quests set out before your party, and uncover the lore of the land.

As a Knight of the Ember Order, you have the ability to absorb the abilities used by your enemies. Every ability used by enemies has a chance to be learned. This allows customization of each character towards whichever goals you have. But each absorbed ability has a cost...

Every absorbed ability will corrupt your soul. You will slowly lose yourself to evil as the quest progresses. This expresses itself in unstable corruption traits which leads to metamorphosis into an evil being (such as a lich). And you will lose yourself to the corruption...

Each run will last between 30-60 minutes. After completing the quest, the most corrupted will kill off his former allies in an epic battle. This corrupted being will then begin attracting evil around them and will act as a boss in a future quest once their influence has expanded enough. They will have all the powers you have provided them during the run, providing a never-ending challenge in future runs. For every corrupted boss, a stronger party is required to defeat them. And the cycle repeats......forever?

Quarter Onion Games announces that its roguelike dungeon crawler Emberlight has entered beta.

The footage gives players a sense of the in-depth gameplay they can expect as they delve deeper into the dungeons and corrupt their very being.  Party members take on traits of their evil personas. These traits express in powerful abilities.

Players interested in Emberlight can wishlist the game on Steam and join the Discord Server where they can discuss the game's development with the team.

Co-Founder & Marketing Director, Michael Hahn said: "Emberlight has evolved into something special in the past 3 months since the game's initial announcement. Players should take a second look at the game with its wider appeal." 

Emberlight will launch for PC (Steam) on August 13th 2019.
