It’s been in development since 2016, when a Kickstarter project thrust Lost Ember into the limelight before being promised to launch on console earlier this year. Now though the team at Mooneye Studios have confirmed that their animal-switching adventure will be dropping into Xbox One, PS4 and PC this November.
If you have ever wanted to play through an adventure as multiple animals, all in the hope that you could possibly uncover the secrets of a fallen civilization, then Lost Ember on Xbox One, PS4, GOG and Steam will be the game for you, with a full launch occurring on November 22nd 2019. If you’re a Nintendo Switch player then you’ll also be able to get in on the action, just you’ll have to hold on tight for a few months more.
Lost Ember will allow you to see the world from an all new perspective as you inhabit a wolf, bird, fish, and more than a dozen different creatures, playing through this third-person exploration adventure in style. The main focus will centre on a wolf who can inhabit all manner of animals, along with their spirit companion, and from here players will be able to control over a dozen different creatures; like a hummingbird, a fish, a mountain goat and a parrot.
Working your way through Lost Ember will give opportunity for you to experience the contrasting stories of the fall of mankind, the lush life in a world reclaimed by nature, all as your spirit guide narrates the tale of what happened to the lost human civilizations that once settled in these wild lands. Taking to the land, sea, and air, Lost Ember will push you through gargantuan canyon valleys as a parrot, through the grass as a wombat, into shimmering lakes as a fish, and a whole ton more.
Ultimately though you’ll discover a tale of loyalty, despair, and betrayal, as echoes of the lost Yanrana culture come to life in a lush wilderness devoid of man.
“Creating Lost Ember has been an incredible journey for us,” said Mooneye Studios CEO and programmer Tobias Graff. “We wanted to show the world something that would capture the imagination of players of all ages and nationalities, without relying on violence, microtransactions, or competitive play. Something pure, simple, and wondrous. After more than five long years, Lost Ember is the culmination of that dream.”
