Strayed Lights is out next month on consoles and PC, but you can play it today via a new Steam demo.
Developer Embers announced the news of this demo today during the Mix Direct Spring 2023 Showcase that aired today alongside a new trailer for the game. Strayed Lights continues to look great visually, and the action looks awesome.
Check it out for yourself in the new Strayed Lights gameplay trailer below:
“In Strayed Lights, you travel through otherworldly regions of misty woods, glowing ruins, and corrupted cities while pursued by eerie shadow creatures,” a press release reads. “You also take on boss fights with colossal creatures wrought with unbridled emotion. Your tiny light will grow, picking up new abilities and increasing in size, before eventually evolving into a pseudo-mystical entity imbued with vivid powers.
“Meanwhile, you’ll get a glimpse at the mysteries of the surrounding world, whether through other strayed lights like yourself, or different creatures entirely. The game is set to an atmospheric soundtrack that reflects states of feeling in creatures you encounter, by Grammy-award-winning composer Austin Wintory – whose previous projects include Journey, Abzu, and The Banner Saga Series.”
As for the new Steam demo, Embers calls it a “limited time” experience so if you’re interested in checking the game out, do it as soon as you can because there’s no word on when the demo will no longer be available.
“We are thrilled to be able to share our new gameplay trailer and demo with fans of Strayed Lights,” Embers co-founder and creative director Alexandre Arramon writes in a press release. “We’ve been working hard to create a game that is both engaging and visually outstanding, and we can’t wait for players to experience it for themselves.”
Strayed Lights hits PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on April 25.
