Pale Night is a minimalist platforming adventure where light is your enemy, with you having to stick to the shadows and avoid it at all cost.
In Pale Night you explore the minimalist 2D world of Vector as Pal – the last living member of a race of Square People. You need to traverse the world and try to break a curse which causes Pal to die if he ever comes into contact with light. You’ll need to stick to the shadows as you make your way through the world and reveal the dark secret of the history of the Square People.
Obviously any narrative-driven platforming game that features a little square as a playable character will garner some comparisons to Thomas Was Alone. It’s a very different game though with clever shadow based mechanics and better looking gameplay that will challenge your platforming skills. Pal may need to stay in the shadows, but it’s a great looking platforming adventure well worth shining a light on.
