Manchester, UK, March 19, 2019 — Quietly revealed in the latter half of 2018, Sparklite is back in a big way with a brand new teaser trailer, new screenshots, and a feature showing at GDC 2019 with Microsoft! Developed by Red Blue Games and published by Merge Games, Sparklite is an undeniable nostalgia bomb that will be making its way to Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in Fall 2019.
A delightful mix of roguelite and adventure, Sparklite lovingly leans into the games that inspired it such as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Rogue Legacy while still creating an identity all its own. Take a look at the all-new teaser trailer showcasing new enemies, environments, gadgets and more!
Sparklite is a roguelite brawler-adventure. Battle foes in top-down action using an arsenal of gadgets, guns, and gear. Explore dangerous corners of the world, take down titans of the mining industry, and save the Sparklite!
Everything in the world is tied together by Sparklite... it's the life force of the planet, and the inhabitants have learned how to channel it for their own gain. It can be harnessed, or it can be consumed for a surge of power with grave consequences.
The "Baron" has devised a plot to mine the world’s Sparklite core. He mines Sparklite and burns/consumes it to fuel his powerful war machines, but the pollution from the consumed Sparklite is corrupting the world. Animals have turned to violent monsters, and the environment is rotting away. But the world has a natural defense in its Sparklite core. Periodically, the core causes a Disruption which rearranges the world, setting back the Baron’s efforts. If the Baron can obtain the core, he will gain the power to create a new world where he has ultimate power.
Our hero, Ada, must travel to each zone of the world to shut down its Digsite, lowering the Baron’s defenses so that she can stop him before it’s too late...
But does it spark joy?
