'Tasomachi: Behind The Twilight' Gets Release Date - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on April 5, 2021 @ 9:44 a.m. PDT

Tasomachi: Behind The Twilight is an action adventure game where you explore a mysterious Eastern themed town.

Tasomachi is a relaxed 3D platformer that is all about unwinding and exploring a sleepy Far-Eastern themed world to your heart's content, collecting items while navigating platforming sections and completing requests from NPCs. Explore the beautiful landscape and undertake the various trials of an imagined world inspired by the art, culture, and geography of East Asia and late-90’s collect-a-thon platformers.

Yukumo is a young girl who travels around in her airship, her pride and joy. When visiting a particular Eastern town to run some errands her airship suddenly breaks down. She decides to explore the town to search for parts for repair; however, the town has fallen silent with no trace of the people who live there, the only inhabitants being a strange cat-like species...

As crash-landed explorer Yukumo, double jump, dash, and airdrop through dungeons, temples, and various scenic locations, complete with a “Photo Mode” to commemorate the many beautiful sights. Take on these challenges at a relaxed pace with no life gauges or hit counters to worry about while jamming out to a soundtrack by Ujico*, a Japanese musician with more than 1 million YouTube subscribers and 600,000 monthly Spotify listeners.

Between levels, visit the city that serves as home to the Nezu Tribe, a cat-like species providing Yukumo with requests to complete various tasks in exchange for valuable collectibles and resources. Find new areas by repairing Yukumo’s airship, discover ancient temples, and traverse cherry blossom-covered gardens and snow-covered mountain ranges. Earn new outfits and items to decorate Yukumo’s house among the Nezu Tribe.


“I enjoy making 2D and 3D art for myself and others, but I felt a need to express myself and the beauty of the world, which I could only do properly through a video game of my own,” said nocras, the sole developer of TASOMACHI. “It also feels like the world unfairly abandoned the collect-a-thon platformer, and I want to bring that genre back with beautiful visuals that create the same sense of melancholy and joy that I originally felt in my youth.”

Key Features:

  • Wonder into a mysterious and sleepy town where time flows slowly and explore to your heart’s content.
  • Communicate with the “locals”.
  • Explore highways, bridges, ravines and other such scenic locations.

Artist-turned-game developer nocras’s impressive resume includes credits on multiple AAA titles, including 3D design on Final Fantasy XIII-2 in addition to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and 2D art for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as well as Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

Tasomachi is currently in development for PC (Steam), scheduled for April 14, 2021.
