Snail Games is defying the rumor that the company is not publishing Dark & Light. To show the game is very much still in progress, a very brief 24-second game play video has been released that shows off a number of environments and creatures despite its short length.
Well, if anyone thought Dark and Light was coming to Steam Early Access this year still... we have some bad news. The Steam Page is officially up, and it's been delayed into early 2017. Read on for more.
The Dark & Light team is teasing out a few more images via the game's official Twitter page. In the last few days, both the Elven city of Estel and the Dwarven enclave of Zaharul have had a single screenshot shown that reveals design structure around an entry point to each.
According to 2P.com, a Chinese Reddit has revealed that the Dark & Light Steam Early Access program could begin as early as the end of this year. The post indicates that the files have been submitted to Steam and that they are currently under review.
In the previous Dark and Light creatures spotlight, the team provided a close look at the varied creatures that players will encounter while exploring the world. However, the creatures are more than just set dressing or leveling fodder. Many of the creatures contain varying amounts of elemental magic that fuels Dark and Light's world, which can be extracted by skilled players but also from raw materials.
Imagine yourself as a lone explorer in a limitless world of elemental magic that's teeming with mythical creatures. In Dark and Light, the upcoming multiplayer survival title from Snail Games, players will encounter a wide variety of creatures - both magical and magnificent. In previous overviews, players have seen a few glimpses of the creatures that inhabit the game's world, but today Snail Games provides a deeper look into the menagerie of fantastical beasts.
Dark and Light, once thought dead and buried is nearing ever closer to its eventual relaunch. It's not the game it was 12 years ago, except in name only. Still, even with a few interviews, we don't have much in the way of gameplay video or real details from the developer itself to go on. Ergo, today we're offering up five things we want from Dark and Light. These are just five of our many hopes, so feel free to weigh in with your own.
Cities are core elements of Dark and Light. Compared to traditional sandbox survival games, where the player's character is simply dropped into the world, naked and alone, Dark and Light starts the player off in one of three distinct cities. This lends to a more "civilized" start for the player, and introduces them to the world in a friendlier way.
The announcement of Dark and Light's upcoming Early Access release has made major waves in the gaming community. As we approach this release, we are excited to reveal more details of Dark and Light's dynamic, world, which is both strikingly realistic and wonderfully magical.
Dark & Light and the announcement that it is being reborn for a new audience in 2016 has captured a lot of attention recently. We had the opportunity to chat with Snail Games USA Associate Producer Jonathon Stebel to learn more about a wide variety of topics including professions, PvE / PvP servers, tame-able mounts, combat and much more.
