Players are invited to puzzle, upgrade and battle through the Dark Mountain in this whimsical twin-stick shooter with roguelike mechanics
25th Jan 2021 — Noisy Head Games
Beyond the Long Night, a whimsical twin-stick shooter with roguelike mechanics, has been announced as coming to Kickstarter on February 8th 2022. Developed by Noisy Head Games, a UK based indie studio whose developers have previously worked together at Cambridge based company Frontier Developments, Beyond the Long Night combines a charming indie adventure with chaotic roguelike combat.
Players will be tasked with exploring the Dark Mountain – a subterranean world full of monsters, treasures and secrets. The roguelike mechanics of the game are woven into the story, with the game taking place within a world caught in a time-loop. As players make the dangerous ascent up the underground mountain, they will be chased by a mysterious and unrelenting force known as “The Storm” that destroys everything in its wake. With an emphasis on mystery, replayability, loveable characters and a retro pixel art aesthetic, Beyond the Long Night will offer players an exhilarating adventure where its secrets are drip fed and revealed across multiple playthroughs.
When the Kickstarter launches on February 8th, a free demo will also be released on Steam. The free demo is already available on Itch.io, and will be updated with new upgrades and enemy types when the Kickstarter launches.
