Evergate is a Kickstarter-funded 2D platformer set in the colourful realm of Gods and spirits.
After launching on January 16, 2019, Evergate raised USD$10,400 out of a $25,000 goal in two days. Being Stone Lantern Game’s first official game, this launch is a strong start as Evergate still has 28 days to meet its goal.
Evergate is a 2D puzzle game where the player must traverse through the realm of Gods and spirits to recover their lost memories. The players take control of a child-like spirit named Ki who is on their path to reincarnation.
The Kickstarter description reads, “[Evergate] draws from the wonder of The Neverending Story, the hand-drawn aesthetic of Child of Light, and the Greek myth of Orpheus’ descent into the underworld.”
The game has already been in development for three years and Stone Lantern Games appear committed to completing it. The developers claim on its Kickstarter page that the technical foundations have been laid down, this creating the building blocks for constructing the final game.
With a successful Kickstarter, Evergate aims to launch in November 2019 for PC, with console ports to be announced at a later date.
