Today, the publishing label Spotlight by Quantic Dream is announcing the release date of Sand Door Studio’s inaugural game – Lysfanga: The Time Shift Warrior. The game will release February 13 on Steam and the Epic Games Store at the recommended price of 24,99€/$24.99. Players will benefit from a special discount of 20% during the game’s first week of release, for a recommended price of 19,99€/$19,99 between February 13 and February 20. A new trailer is now available on Quantic Dream’s YouTube channel, featuring never-before-seen gameplay footage.
“We’re so proud to finally share Lysfanga: The Time Shift Warrior with players. It has been an incredible adventure, with the game starting as a student project and evolving into our studio’s first-ever title,” says Thibault Legouet, Game Director at Sand Door Studio. “Players familiar with hack’n’slash games will find all the aspects they love about the genre, including a heroine battling hordes of enemies. But with the remnant system, which sends players back to the start of arenas at regular intervals with clones repeating their past actions, the game is really tactical. You have to prepare your plan before you execute it, and the straightest path isn’t always the shortest route. We can’t wait to see how players will make the gameplay their own, adapting their skills and tactics, combining different weapons and spell combos, and leveraging their past selves to save the kingdom.
Lysfanga: The Time Shift Warrior introduces gamers to the ancient cities of Antala. After halfa millennium of peace, a new danger hangs over the realm. Its fate depends on Imë, a mighty warrior gifted with godlike powers that allow her to rewind time in combat to summon clones of herself and protect the New Kingdom.
Controlling Imë and an army of her past selves, players progress through ancient cities to grow Imë’s arsenal of weapons, acquire new spells, and prepare for a much greater threat ahead.
In this tactical hack’n’slash, players experience a thrilling combat system, which allows them to use multiple versions of their past selves to repeat moves they performed during prior iterations of their fights. The game requires players to strategize with themselves to solve puzzles, defeat the Raxes, and help Imë succeed in her quest.
An exclusive free demo of the game will be available in February during the upcoming Steam Next Fest, for players worldwide to discover the game one week before its official release. The online event will take place on Steam between February 5 and February 12. Steam users can download the demo directly from the game page as soon as the event starts.
Quantic Dream and Sand Door Studio will be inviting players to join them directly on the platform for two special livestreams during the Steam Next Fest event, happening on:
Tuesday February 6th, from 6:30pm to 8pm.
Livestream 2: Friday February 9th, from 6:30pm to 8pm.
