Nevaeh is a 2D action adventure game that features unique art style and the distinct use of light and shadow.

Join the girl in her journey to reclaim the light

Bring light to the town engulfed in darkness!

Street lamps begin to go out one by one, and darkness slowly overwhelms the bright and peaceful town. A girl heads to the Tower, the source of light, in hopes of fixing the lamps. She discovers a glowing butterfly trapped in the Tower, and without hesitation, steals it to borrow its power to bring back light to the town.

A 2D action adventure, Nevaeh features a girl's quest to bring back the light for the dark town. Taking place in the Gothic, monochrome world, the game shows a simple but strong and effective use of light and shadow.

As the girl who stole the butterfly, players will embark on a journey to bring light to the town once again. The journey takes place in the Tower, where players must venture through monsters and traps. Using light and shadow is the key to safely exploring the Tower.

A girl heads to the Tower, the source of light, to fix the broken street lamps in the town. What she found in the Tower was a butterfly emitting light from its body. Thinking the butterfly could help with the task, she decides to take it with her. However, as light was lost, the town was quickly covered in darkness... Once again, the girl heads to the Tower to bring back the light for the townspeople.

After the butterfly disappeared, the bright Tower turned into a gloomy and dangerous place full of traps and monsters. In the labyrinth so hostile that it hurts one just by staying in the shadows, the girl must find her way to the top of the Tower.

Hopefully, the butterfly will help the girl with its mystic light. Its light can be used to uncover the monsters hidden in shadows, and provide power to the machines.

The girl uses the butterfly's light to create a path to places she can't get to, or solve puzzles by moving the shadow. Being a truly reliable partner, it will always stay with her in the dark and dangerous Tower.

The world of Nevaeh is specially made with a delicate and monochrome graphics, turning the game into a fairy tale featuring Gothic art and immersive soundtracks.

The new trailer revealed today introduces the actual gameplay and various action-packed scenes, including how to use the butterfly's light on hidden enemies, traps, puzzles, and bosses.

Nevaeh is coming to Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam), scheduled for September 25, 2020.
