A Rose in the Twilight is a beautiful and surprisingly bloody puzzle platforming adventure from the doodtastic NIS America (creator of Danganrompa and Disgaea), in which you help a sleeping giant and a little girl escape a creepy castle where time and color does not exist.
Coming to Steam and PS Vita (although the testing is only on Steam), A Rose in the Twilight starts with a young girl called Rose awakening in a castle void of time and color, with a curse of thorns other back. Rose has the ability to absorb blood and transfer it to frozen objects, coloring them red and imbuing them with the essence of time. She also discovers a slumbering giant whom she awakens and the pair set out to escape the castle, unaware of Rose’s cruel fate.
A Rose in the Twilight is split into stages, each containing challenging puzzles that will require Rose’s blood magic and the Giant’s super strength to complete. The blood splatters that Rose collects throughout the game not only allow her to perform her time-restoring blood magic, but will also show gruesome visions of the death of the people who’s blog it is you’re using.
It’s an intriguing game, with a wonderfully dark narrative, beautiful artwork and cerebral puzzle platforming gameplay. You won’t need blood magic to to foresee visions of this games future though – just sign up for the Beta instead!
