What is this?

Light & Dark is a roguelike platformer. You play as Victoria Bloom, a young girl trapped in an old mansion afflicted by a mysterious darkness. You have to find your way through the dark and face the horrors inside, with only your flashlight to light your path.

The mansion is always covered in complete darkness and randomly generated so each play-through feels different and you never know what might be lurking behind the corner.

A lot of different light sources, tinkering modules and items are hidden throughout the mansion and help you along the way.

What do you do?

The main mechanic of the game is how you control and use light. Your light comes from several different sources. You have your flashlight as your main source of light but you can pick up several different sources such as matches, that you can throw at enemies, firecrackers, that clear darkness, lanterns that keep you safe...

With your light you can clear the darkness to uncover your surroundings, defeat enemies, collect resources, find hidden areas and more. You can also modify your flashlight with tinkering by finding modules that can increase range and radius or deal more damage to enemies.

Who is Victoria Bloom?

Victoria Bloom is, and has always been, a tinkerer. She always had a talent for taking things apart and putting them back together in new and interesting ways. She would spend most of her play time making her gizmos and thingamajigs. Her mother always says she got her quirky talent from her grandfather, the world famous inventor Percival Abernathy Bloom. The once famous inventor now lives in his Old Bloom Mansion on top of Pinewood Hill.

This is coincidentally, where our story begins. With our young Victoria visiting her grandfather at the Old Bloom Mansion on top of Pinewood hill, like she does every winter, only this time things seem different...

We're back!

It took us a while but we spent the better half of the last year quietly working on the game. Check out the trailer and join our discord channel for more frequent updates. Light&Dark is coming, it just took us longer than expected to sort out funding and continue development.

How it all began

Before we get into all the nitty gritty game development stuff I’d like to take a few moments to go back to how this game came about. Back in 2014 a few of us were attending a course in game design, which took place in the Croatian Machina Academy. Just after we finished, a big game convention was happening and a game jam was going to be organized for the entire 4 days. The theme of the game jam was simply the word “and”.
