Save Faeland from the forthcoming darkness

By Square Enix Team


Collective community, another week another pitch! Within this week’s edition of the Square Enix Collective feedback platform we have Faeland, an action-RPG inspired by the Metroidvania subgenre. 

 In a fantasy world, humans have established their kingdom through centuries of peace efforts in an attempt to keep a safe margin between them and the dark forces of magic and monstrous beasts that lurk away from civilization. You play as Sam, a skilled hunter who prefers the seclusion of the forest over the medieval politics that besets the kingdom’s great cities. Unbeknownst to Sam, he’s about to become embroiled in a series of cataclysmic events that will change the fate of these lands forever. 

Faeland is an open world game that places a heavy emphasis upon carving your own journey through its campaign. Within it you’ll traverse across a kingdom rich in environmental variety, fight the realm's most monstrous creatures, plunder the deepest dungeons, and solve the most ancient of riddles. Inspired by metroidvania, gameplay revolves around combat and platforming, and NPCs will provide a plethora of useful information that will be sure to improve the outcome of your journey. 

Faeland will be available on PC, Mac, and Linux, but the studio has hopes to bring the title to consoles in the future. If you’re keen to learn more about the project you can talk to devlopers or vote for it here.
