Kickstarter Launched for ‘There Is No Light’ Action RPG

Developer Zelart has officially unveiled a new Kickstarter campaign for their upcoming Action RPG, There Is No Light. The game is described by Zelart as a “grim post-apocalyptic pixel-art action-adventure.” Here are the details for the funding campaign and what you can receive if you fund this video game project.


There Is No Light Kickstarter and Demo

The Kickstarter campaign is officially underway as of September 8, with a goal of $30,000 and to be funded by October 6. The projected release date for There Is No Light is August 2021 as of this writing; funded Kickstarters are known to miss their release windows, so take this date with a grain of salt. Zelart says they’re planning to bring this game to all “current and future consoles” including PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and in a variety of languages. That is without taking any stretch goals into consideration, which is impressing considering that what they’re asking for the total funding amount is not too outlandish

Some of the features for There Is No Light include a non-linear narrative, player choices, a “Rage” system, and plenty of gory pixel combat to experience. Players will fight through the Underworld in a series of visceral, disturbing areas, fighting demons and other crazy monsters while also interacting with villagers. A one to two-hour demo is available for download through Steam (no other platforms have playable demos at the moment).

You can pledge any amount towards the Kickstarter, but the lowest tier that will net you rewards begins at $19 and includes a digital version of the game, your name in the credits, some wallpapers, updates, and a backer role in the official Discord server. Higher tiers include designing your own NPC, a personal pixel portrait in-game, and even a house and pet for your NPC. The Kickstarter goes on to detail some of the diverse areas you will traverse in the game and some of the weapons and abilities you can take advantage of throughout the experience.

HypeTrain Digital will be publishing There Is No Light on both consoles and PC and will team up in porting the game to consoles specifically. We’ll be giving you an in-depth preview of the playable demo sometime this week, so keep your eyes on Sick Critic’s homepage for updates.
