Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights is a 2D dark fantasy metroidvania fairy tale.

After waking up alone in a church with no memory of recent events, priestess Lily finds the surrounding hamlet and woods occupied only by the undead. A cursed rain falls upon the Ruined Kingdom, and only Lily can purify the corruption and free its denizens from the blight.

Guide the priestess Lily through winding caverns, underwater landscapes, forests of glowing trees and other areas devastated by a rain turning people undead. Each biome is gorgeously illustrated in a distinctly Japanese dark fantasy style. Purify challenging and ghastly bosses to recruit them as equippable companions. Mix and match the souls of the fallen to create an ethereal bodyguard squad, with attacks ranging from powerful axe blows to ranged bow strikes.

Upon exorcising foes, Lily will experience visions revealing glimpses of the past. Piece together the whole truth and solve the mystery behind the unholy rain before facing a choice that will decide the fate of a kingdom.

A poignant soundtrack from Mili, veteran of anime series including Ghost in the Shell and Goblin Slayer as well as rhythm games enjoyed by millions such as Cytus and Deemo, brings the world of Ender Lilies to life. Sound effects by former Sega producer Keiichi Sugiyama with credits on franchises like Rez and Skies of Arcadia punctuate the soundtrack’s melancholy melodies. 

Ender Lilies: Quietus Of The Knights is available on Steam Early Access for $19.99 USD / 19,99€ Euros / £15.49 GBP / ¥70.00 CNY.

Developers Live Wire, Adglobe Tokyo and Adglobe Montreal Studio have released the first three of at least eight areas coming to v1.0.

“Mili and Sugiyama-san have been amazing partners for Ender Lilies. Their work, combined with our artists’ gorgeous vision, creates an immersive dark fantasy atmosphere,” said Hiroyuki Kobayashi, CEO, Binary Haze Interactive. “Action RPG fans will find a lot to love, not only in the beauty of the Ruined Kingdom, but also in the tight and fast-paced gameplay.”

Enjoy the story in English, Japanese, French, German, Spanish (Spain), Korean, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional) Italian, Portuguese (Brazil), or Russian.
