The Light of the Darkness

The Light of the Darkness from Quartomundo has won a place at the NGDC finals, after winning in Italy.

The Light of the Darkness blends Castlevania progression, exploration and RPG aspects with Legacy of Kain story, dialogue and fan theories. It is a Metroidvania game inspired by the beloved classics. Explore the Lands of Oblivion, a cursed place between the worlds of Light and Darkness. Play as the first and unique hybrid into a world filled with rich storytelling and intriguing, original history.

“We couldn’t be happier with Nordic Game for being accepted at the competition. The Light of The Darkness has been around for a while now, but after winning NGDC during DStars in Italy it is like we are really on the map of Indie Games,” says Fernando Rabello, CEO of QUARTOMUNDO. “We have been getting so much attention, there are so many good things happening to us… From an Indie Dev perspective, NGDC is just an amazing initiative!
