Inspired by Indonesian philosophy and folk art, Faerie Afterlight is a lovely, stylized 2D Metroidvania featuring a rich story and haunting, unforgettable soundtrack. Simultaneously control Kimo and Wispy as this unlikely but (literally) inseparable duo explores Lumina’s infested caverns, deep seas, and ghostly cities to gather the scattered shards of Light. Solve puzzles, unlock new abilities, fight fierce enemies, and – if you have the courage – make unexpected allies!
