Description

Fading Skies is an action-adventure platformer set in a unique high fantasy universe full of magic, mystery and quirky characters. The game is inspired by the joy of exploration and free movement found in 3D platforming classics and strives to take this genre into a new direction with immersive design and interactive storytelling.

You take on the role of Ryn and embark on a journey to stop the literal decay of her world, brought about by a mysterious dark tower that appeared inbetween the floating ruins of her home town. But to reach it's top and put an end to the chaos, Ryn first has to acquire new abilities, overcome corrupted creatures, form new friendships and confront her past to mend old ones.

Developer

Fading Skies is currently solo developed by Marc Fleps (@MarcFleps on Twitter), whose fate as a game developer was sealed back in 2001 when he discovered a demo of the RPG Maker in a gaming magazine. This simple game engine got him hooked on creating worlds and stories for others to explore and led him deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole of game design. He soon learned that the medium has plenty of potential beyond being a fun pastime and thus set the goal for himself to create rich experiences that are both entertaining and meaningful. After working in the games industry for three years as an animator and technical artist, he realized that his best shot at making this goal a reality is to enter the world of indie development. He began working on Fading Skies in 2016.
