Under the Stairs
Based in Zagreb, Croatia
Light&Dark is a 2D roguelike platformer where you explore a cursed mansion in search of your grandpa. Your tools for surviving this dark and hostile environment are all based on light. You will use a Flashlight, a Lantern, matches etc. As you traverse the darkness your sanity will slowly fade away so you have to balance the limited amount of light you have with the ever present darkness and the horrors that lurk inside it. The game features permadeath and randomly generated level design so that every run is different and every run forces you to use the mechanics of the game instead of learning the layouts by repetition.
We are a currently a 3 man team based in Zagreb, Croatia. We met at the game design school Machina and are currently using its incubation program. The initial idea for the game happened at the Machina Game Jam in 2014. The prototype went on to win the "best gameplay" category at Reboot Infogamer 2014 and the best arstyle category at Infogamer 2015. Because of the overwhelming amount of positive feedback the game got we decided to take a crack at it full time. We are currently looking for interested investors and publishers for the game.
- Randomly generated levels which encourage replays
