Welp, there it is folks. After 4 long years of hard work, we can finally say that Light Fall will release on April 26 (next Thursday) on both Steam and Switch. It took more time than we anticipated but now it’s official: no more obstacles stand in our way. With just a week left, it’s time to spread the word, so do not hesitate to share the good news with your friends!
Every bit of help counts and the support from the community has shown its effectiveness on numerous occasions, so please join us in our effort to raise awareness for the game. For example, you can share the release trailer below:
THE FINISH LINE IS HERE AT LAST
Turning Light Fall into a reality was not an easy task. It was our first project, and for 2 of the 3 founders, it was also our first steps in the video game industry. In hindsight, we truly had no idea what we were getting ourselves into before we embarked on this adventure. It was a roller-coaster ride but we’re very glad to have lived such an experience.
And while we had too many delays and drawbacks to our liking, we were committed to making Light Fall the way we envisioned it. Porting to a console like the Nintendo Switch, building another game mode totally dedicated to Speedrun (online leaderboards, in-game ghosts of other players, etc.) and shaping up two game difficulties obviously took a lot of time and energy. But we wouldn’t have it any other way. These things are what makes Light Fall great; they allow you to experience the game to the fullest no matter your skill level or the type of platformer you usually enjoy.
On a technical level, the game will be available on the Steam Store and the Nintendo eShop for the cost of 15 USD (or it’s equivalent) on the 26th. The game will be downloadable only, although we do have some physical copies as Kickstarter rewards. Another important thing to note is that Nintendo America will do a pre-launch sale of the game starting tomorrow (April 19)! So, if you really can’t wait to get the game on Switch, you can always pre-purchase it.
FOR OUR KICKSTARTER BACKERS
If you are one of our Kickstarter backers, we encourage you to pay close attention to the updates coming up until the 26th. We will do a Kickstarter survey to address the rewards as soon as we have more information on the Switch/PC versions. We still do not know if it will be possible to have a Switch-version of Light Fall for the backers, but it is an avenue we are currently exploring and working on closely with Nintendo.
There’s not much else to say than thank you, really. Your support and kind words throughout the years have been of tremendous help. We know first-hand that we’ve had quite a few delays and that things rarely went according to plan. We learned a lot on this journey and you guys honestly made it easy for us. Not once have we felt pressured by the community or have received any form of backlash for not meeting a prior deadline. For your understanding and patience, we remain eternally thankful.
We sincerely hope Light Fall meets your expectations, as we have put our heart and soul into this game. Thank you and have fun exploring the Forgotten World of Numbra.
