Back at the start of this month, Mythwalk Studios announced their crowdfunding campaign for Dewborne Dawn. The action-adventure Metroidvania takes place in the last remaining haven of a world beset by a dire curse where players explore, fight, and make new allies as they prove to the survivors that hope still exists, in the form of a small, mysterious creature. Dewborne Dawn was slated to launch in 2025 on Switch should funding be secured.
While there’s still 4 days to go on the Kickstarter for Dewborne Dawn, the dev team doesn’t need anymore time to make the game a reality. As of today, the campaign has officially reached its $50k goal, meaning the title is now a lock for Switch release. We might have to wait a full year+ to get the game, but it’s good to know it’s on the way! If you’d like to help the team bring in some extra funding to make Dewborne Dawn that much better, you can find the official Kickstarter here.
In Dewborne Dawn, players take on the role of Dew, a mystical creature wielding a divine blade which has the rare ability to cleanse this plague. Explore the remnants of this world and discover the mysteries behind this curse and how to fight back against it. Jump, dash, and carve out your own path forward in this non-linear adventure featuring multiple ways to progress at every opportunity. Discover powerful artifacts that add new abilities to your arsenal, opening up new areas to investigate. Embark on an immersive journey, but be mindful, not all survivors view you as a hero.
The culture and lore of Dewborne Dawn plays a key role in gameplay, and building relationships with the characters you meet along the way will prove to be advantageous on your quest. These allies can be recruited to your party and provide many unique boons to the gameplay experience. While they certainly add an extra layer to each battle, they aren’t just combat tools. Each member has a deep connection with the lore of the world and in the narrative of Dew’s journey, with their own stories to tell, and their own conflicts that need resolution. However, when it does come to combat, every single ally can be summoned in battle to provide you some extra assistance, and attempting to befriend them all will be more than beneficial to your cause.
