As adventure fans are all too aware, distribution deals are often the bane of localized releases. Fortunately, there's bright news on the horizon from The Adventure Company, as JoWood and The Games Company have announced a partnership for multiple new releases in North America and the UK.
First up is Everlight, the fantasy adventure by Silver Style Entertainment. The game casts players as a young man named Melvin, who finds himself magically transported to the village of Tallen, where he's guided by a cheeky fairy named Fenny. The townsolk all suffer from an unusual affliction, as each character's personality turns into its polar opposite at night, and even the town changes in subtle ways to reflect the altered characteristics. In helping Melvin, players must switch between day and night to make best use of this strange duality.
The new distribution deal between the two companies will include other games after Everlight, though no further titles have yet been revealed. The Games Company recently published the stylish Goin' Downtown in Germany, but it's uncertain whether the new adventure is included in the current arrangement.
Everlight is scheduled to be released in North America in early September. In the meantime, be sure to check out our preview of the game for more information.
