NIS America has revealed that A Rose in the Twilight, their upcoming puzzle platforming game, will be releasing for PC via Steam and PlayStation Vita on April 11 in North America and April 14 in Europe.
From the creator of htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary comes a dark adventure about a girl named Rose, inflicted with the Curse of Thorns and trapped in a somber castle devoid of color and time.
A Rose in the Twilight puts the player in direct control of Rose and the giant, and in order to successfully navigate and escape the castle, the two will have to work together to solve puzzles and take turns using their own unique abilities. Rose possesses the Power of Thorns, the ability to absorb blood and inject it into static objects, which then returns the presence of time. On the other hand, the giant possesses super strength and can move large objects that are in its way, or simply overcome any obstacle it comes across. Switching between them is vital to solving almost all the puzzles you will encounter.
As she begins to familiarize herself with her surroundings, Rose will discover a series of grim vignettes where memories are revealed to her when she absorbs blood from the fallen. With this element of visual storytelling, these fragmented memories will help piece together what it was like in the castle before Rose awoke from her slumber, and may hold answers to why she is there in the first place.
Level Down Games will have more on A Rose in the Twilight as it gets closer to release.
