MEDIA ALERT 2024-02-14


Discover the debut release from Sand Door Studio, a hack ‘n’ slash with a tactical twist now available on Steam and the Epic Games Store.
Follow nine streamers for the Nations Brawl as they compete to achieve top scores and win special prizes for their communities.


Today, Quantic Dream and Sand Door Studio are proud to announce the release of Lysfanga: The Time Shift Warrior, a new tactical hack ‘n’ slash published under the label SPOTLIGHT by QUANTIC DREAM.
The game is now available on PC through Steam and the Epic Games Store at a recommended retail price of €24.99. To celebrate the release, partner platforms will offer a 20% discount during the first week of launch, for a suggested retail price of €19.99.

We’ve put much creativity and care into Lysfanga: The Time Shift Warrior, and I am so excited to see how players will challenge themselves and make the game their own,” states Thibault Legouet, Game Director at Sand Door Studio. “It is an honor to lead the development of Sand Door Studio’s inaugural game, and to see a bright idea from our student project grow into a full-blown game. I hope players will have tons of fun strategizing, challenging themselves, and summoning an army of their past selves to save the kingdom of Antala.”

Thanks to the godlike powers of the game’s protagonist, Imë, players can rewind time a few seconds in the past and summon clones – remnants – to overpower their enemies. Each arena can be defeated in countless ways with a combination of remnants, spells, and weapons, bringing a strategic approach to battle.
Additionally, players can push their limits by changing the difficulty of settings and adding combat modifiers to unlock new rewards with a special game mode called “Figments of Battle.” By replaying and optimizing each arena, they can challenge themselves to rise to the top and beat the game’s high scores.

The game is fully dubbed in English and is also available with subtitles in the following languages: English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Latin American Spanish and Turkish.

Furthermore, Quantic Dream and Sand Door Studio have released the game’s official soundtrack on digital streaming platforms, available today in partnership with KidKatana Records. The soundtrack blends various music genres – such as electronic, dark ambient and industrial tribal – and the composers Thomas Lanza and Pablo Gomez have taken inspiration from artists like Ulf Söderberg, Steve Roach, and Tzol’kin, among others.

This unique piece of music is available here.
