Solar Ash Kingdom Announcement
The creators of our very favorite game here at Hyper Light Up have announced a new game coming out sometime in the (near, maybe?) future. Heart Machine put out a reveal trailer for it and it is called Solar Ash Kingdom. Check out the Reveal Trailer below.
We are very excited for it and we honestly cannot wait to play it.
We also already see some similarities with Hyper Light Drifter from the reveal trailer alone, some of those being:
- It sounds like Disasterpeace is going to be the composer for this game’s OST as well, judging from how similar the music style is. That eerie atmospheric drone sound in the background with the synths hitting you in the right moments.
- A lot of the areas look like 3D renditions of areas we got to explore in Hyper Light Drifter, meaning it might actually be a continuation of the studio’s first game.
- The main character is conjuring a sword out of his hand when attacking in the last seconds of the video, giving even more hints as to how connected the worlds of the two games might be.
So, for all we know, we could actually be exploring the Lands of Buried Time with an entirely new character in an entirely game.
If we’ve learned anything from Spearhead Games about making games in the same style, then we know that they could really be a hit (looking at Stories:Path of Destinies and Omensight). So all we have to do is wait and see if the same will happen for Heart Machine with their second title.
One thing is for sure; when the game is out, you can expect a full playthrough and in-depth review of it from us here at Hyper Light Up!
