Solar Ash Preview
Posted: 12 weeks ago, last updated 6 days ago.
Set in the same universe as Hyper Light Drifter, this time you are inside a huge black hole, the Ultravoid. You play Rei, a daring void runner desperate to save her homeworld before it is consumed. You must defeat all the evil beings that have taken up residence on your planet, and face ever stronger enemies against overwhelming odds.
"At its core, Solar Ash is a game about movement", says developer Alex Preston, and this is reflected in the speed and agility possessed by Rei. You follow trails of colour and glide across huge chasms as you traverse the vast world in search of enemies. Fights are quick, but sometimes require complex timing and manoeuvres to beat. The fights gradually increase in difficulty and scale, and offer up a challenge even to experienced players.
Its fluid movement system, ethereal visuals and unique combat system make Solar Ash a unique game in the vast expanse of platforming games.
