In Rays of the Light is a remake and reimagining of the original 2012 indie game The Light. The initial project was a “test of the pen,” which marked the beginning of my journey in the world of game development. The game contained a general moral concept associated with the danger and harmful consequences of human activity: with endless wars and political struggle, the desire for enrichment, with technical progress, which has a strong effect on our lives, both in a positive and in a negative way. The final message of the story was that Mother Nature will breathe a sigh of relief when humanity as a species disappears from the face of the Earth.

The original game was a small sketch with 15-20 minutes of gameplay. The reference for the location was the real-life territory of the Moscow Humanitarian University, in particular, one of its educational buildings. During … Read the rest

Our passion for adventure games precedes everything. When we decided to develop The Wardrobe, we had the goal of making a video game that could draw inspiration from the masterpieces of the genre, such as Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max: Hit the Road, and so on, but making it modern, putting in some black humor. This is how The Wardrobe was born, talking about two friends that not even death can keep away.

Our protagonist is Skinny, a boy who was killed by mistake from his best friend, Ronald. After the accident, Skinny’s body was brought back to life by some mysterious entity, forced to live forever in Ronald’s wardrobe. Like a skeleton in the closet. To save his best friend’s soul from eternal damnation, Skinny will be forced to reveal himself to Ronald and convince him to face his guilt.

Why is Flowing Lights different from other shooting games?
Puzzle elements! They offer a challenge for the brain on top of the immediate fun of destroying monsters. Deeper challenges, deeper sense of achievement!

How do these puzzle elements work?
Each fight has been designed as a puzzle that requires a new tactic. Thanks to a unique system of terrain and physics, bullets flow like a liquid and create new and gripping gameplay situations. The goal is not only to destroy all enemies but also to find the right tactic to do so! This may require several attempts so Flowing Lights has been designed to facilitate experimentation. Failing and retrying is part of the game! Fights can be restarted instantly and without any penalty.

Target audience:
