Edge of Twilight Lives On

Edge of Twilight Lives On

Another blast from the past

Written by punkyliar on 14 December 12 at 02:35

I bet very few of you have even heard of Edge of Twilight. Back in 2007, a little-known developer called FUZZYEYES announced a third-person action adventure title for the Xbox 360 that would set players in a unique (at the time) post-apocalyptic steampunk fantasy world. Initially developed in partnership with SouthPeak Games, development of the game slowed down when SouthPeak hit financial difficulty. Combined with a copyright dispute with EDGE Games and staff layoffs at FUZZYEYES, development was reportedly canned at the end of 2009.

Move on three years and there comes a surprise announcement. Development of the game resumed at the latter end of 2011. In addition to that, FUZZYEYES has set up their own publishing company with the aim of getting the game out fairly soon.

Players take on the role of Lex, the only living halfbreed in the world of Hellayem. Lex is a bounty hunter who is caught in the middle of a civil war between two civilizations. Atherns is an industrial population whereas Literhn has a more spiritual outlook; both are battling for control over the main source of energy needed to survive.

Lex is the only chance that Hellayem has of surviving this clash. Although his halfbreed heritage has caused society to cast him out, he has a unique ability to travel through the parallel realms of Day and Night. Eternal night gifts Lex with mystic powers and heightened agility. Eternal daylight grants the use of huge machines and increased strength. Throughout his journey, the boundaries of good and evil, and right and wrong, will become blurred.

New trailers and screenshots will be released soon, but take a look at the final trailer to be released before the game's initial cancellation if you want to get a glimpse of Hellayem:



Edge of Twilight is currently due to be released “around Christmas”.

Looks like it might have some potential. Hard to tell what kind of game it's even trying to be, though.

I was saddened when it was cancelled, it looks like something Guillermo Del Toro would cook up. I'll be looking into this when it comes out, it's very unique.
State of the badass art.

Looks incredible but I have no idea what I was watching as i'm playing dark souls and seeing a graphic comparison but no actual indication of what it is... Is it going to be third person action rpg like dark souls or more like dante's inferno?

Looks like a good game, was disappointed when it got canceled. Can't wait to get it!!

XBLA or retail?As of right now it looks like it is a retail game as it said for Xbox360 not Xbox live arcade but we won't know for sure until the new screenshots and trailers are released and to answer the other question you all have towards the beginning of the article it said it is a third-person action adventure title

Here's another trailer from 2008 with more actual gameplay in it. I really wanted this back then and good to hear it's survived all the issues.

I think it's a God of War / Dante's Inferno / DMC type of game, well I hope it is.

Looks like a more 'adult' version of Fable, looks good, though I'd prefer it as a retail release.

Why is the icon for this news item the icon for the 'King of the World' achievement in Dishonored?
Is it simply because they're both steampunk?
Just asking out of curiosity.

We don't have an icon or game page for Edge of Twilight and we're not going to have one until the game's platforms are confirmed properly. In cases like this we have to make do and nobody wants to read an article with an unrelated camera icon or hard drive icon, which are the article defaults.
