METAPHORA is the name of a small hollow planet filled with fascinating and crazy wildlife
You play as LUX, a small star that has fallen from the sky, seeking a route home where he belongs.
During his journey, LUX will discover why stars are disappearing from the night skies while you will be confronted by an enemy, a disease called the “NEOVIRUS” that disrupts and corrupts the internal ecosystem of METAPHORA.

By using the power of wildlife, our hero will delve into combat against the NEOVIRUS and make Metaphora blossom again. “It is high time to rekindle the stars.”

The game is developed on Unreal Engine 4 and will be available on PC first.

Here is the Metaphora Reveal Trailer:

Soulblight is a dark top-­down roguelike built around the literal meaning of RPG. Instead of XP grinding you will receive personality traits.These will be the main source of your strength. To benefit from them, you will have to act accordingly. Becoming an alcoholic means that you will be rewarded for getting drunk, but from that point being sober might prove itself to be unbearable. We call this mechanic the Taint System.

Here is the SoulBlight Steam Greenlight and PAX Trailer:
