We reviewed this surprisingly good, Dark Souls-esque title a couple weeks ago and had a blast (see our full review here). A story-driven dungeon crawler, Fall Of Light surprised us with it's deceptively deep gameplay and high difficulty. It had a few problems, but overall, we loved it. 1C just announced that Fall Of Light is now available in the Mac App Store, in addition to a new localization pack, making the game available in simplified Chinese and Portuguese. Check out the official announcement below.
1C is pleased to announce that Fall of Light has been released on the Mac App Store. This story-driven dungeon crawler, set in a world consumed by darkness, combines a solid Souls-like experience, captivating atmosphere, a deep story and original visuals. Originally released on Steam and other digital stores in September, it will now also benefit from two more languages in its localization pack – Portuguese and Simplified Chinese. We believe that new and current fans in these regions will appreciate the possibility of enjoying Fall of Light in their native tongue.
Fall of Light takes the player into a dark world, in which an old warrior leads his daughter towards the last remnants of sunlight. Only together are they strong enough to defeat the enemies born from the Shadow. The lack of light, in combination with the stylized graphics, underline the game's grim atmosphere, both in the world above and the one below – the birthplace of the evil threatening to end the Era of Men.
"Quite a bit like Dark Souls then, but with a touch of Ico to it" (Rock, Paper, Shotgun)
"It may not light the world on fire, but this dark gem is certainly worth your time." (KeenGamer)
The Mac App Store version of Fall of Light brings the title even closer to users of the Apple platform, while certifying compatibility at the same time. It has been made available in partnership with MacPlay, an experienced Apple publisher, and 1C is looking forward to bringing more exciting titles from its portfolio to the platform.
About the game
"In the beginning, there was only an excruciating, screaming void, wherein twisted souls writhed about,imprisoned in nothingness. Then the darkness was pierced by Luce, and with her came warmth and order. The time of men had begun, and would last many eras. But the 14th era is one of Darkness..."
