About Aeterna Noctis

About this game

Aeterna Noctis is a challenging 2D hand-drawn action platformer, a Metroidvania with thrilling combat that will keep you on the edge of your seat and heart-stopping platform sections that will put your skills to the test. Play as the King of Darkness and explore 16 connected areas in an epic journey to regain your powers. 

The Supreme God Chaos created the Universe and the world of Aeterna, and populate it with different races and creatures. Soon his creations turned against him, seeking to take the world for themselves. Chaos was angered, and in his terrible wrath, he cast a terrible curse upon the rebellious leaders. He named them King of Darkness and Queen of Light and condemned them to keep fighting each other forever, until the end of time...

GAME FEATURES

Fluid gameplay mechanics

In a game with such a difficulty curve that scales with progression, Aeterna Noctis features extremely responsive controls, allowing for precise movement and combat.

High mobility

Intuitive world design allows the players to exploit the precise movement controls of the character, allowing them to overcome each challenge in a multitude of ways. As you become more skilled in the game, it allows you to get even faster completion times. 

Deep, beautiful plot

It is featuring an immersive and emotional story with incredible moments, filled with unexpected twists that will immerse the players into the rich world of Aeterna Noctis.

Traditional 2D Art

Worldbuilding in Aeterna Noctis is completed by handcrafting each asset, animation and environmental detail in the game using traditional illustration methods by the art team, giving rise to a vibrant and beautifully assembled world.

Freedom of choice

Aeterna Noctis features a defined path for the storyline but allows the player to take whatever path and pacing to navigate the expansive non-linear map featuring 16 different zones, interconnected in a classic Metroidvania style. 

More than 40 music tracks

Aeterna Noctis features over 40 unique tracks each with its own theme. Once the game is made available, the OST will be released with special covers of the main songs as a piano collection

Difficulty level

Aeterna Noctis features two game modes. If you are a lover of Metroidvania games, in Aeterna Noctis there is a perfect game mode for you, the Aeterna Mode. However, if extreme challenges and platforming are what you want, you are a Noctis Mode player. But do you know what the differences are between these game modes? We explain it to you.

Aeterna Mode (A pure Metroidvania experience)

In essence, the game has been completely redesigned to offer you as a player a 100% Metroidvania experience where action and exploration are the protagonists.

Noctis Mode (Platforms and extreme challenges)

By playing in this mode, you will not only have to explore and recover your powers, but you will also face constant puzzles, platform sections and challenges only recommended for the most demanding players.

What if I started in Noctis mode and the difficulty is too much for me? Or... What if I started in Aeterna mode but want a more challenging experience?

The player can switch between one mode or the other at any time without losing progress and reloading the game at the last save point, allowing the Aeterna Noctis experience to be shaped at your will. However, there are achievements that can only be unlocked on Noctis Mode.

I'd rate this game a solid 9/Hollow Knight. It's good. You'll only be disappointed if you harbor conspiracy theories against Easy Anti-Cheat or suck at platforming. Otherwise, it's really good.

Haven't played through the whole game but it looks as though it's a platformer like Hollow Knight but with some different aspects, the story is interesting for now and the gameplay is looking good so far.
