A Walk in the Dark Trailer and Screens

By Lucy Wood,
Do you have cat-like reflexes and enjoy exploring dark fantasy worlds full of traps and dangerous beasts? If so then story-driven platformer A Walk in the Dark, coming soon to Xbox, could be the game for you.


A Walk in the Dark tells the story of a cat called Bast who is playing in the forest with his best friend Arielle when they are interrupted by an ancient evil creature. The dark Spirit takes Arielle away, and Bast must pursue them and find a way to rescue her over the course of 100 main story levels.

A Walk in the Dark was originally released on Steam in 2013, where it has received 83% positive user reviews. Developer Flying Turtle Software set out to make the gameplay fluid and catlike, adding gravity inversion mechanics to the usual running, jumping and sliding that are expected in a platformer. The achievement list includes multiple speed running challenges and rewards players for dying 1000 times, suggesting this will be a tough and possibly frustrating game to play.


A Walk in the Dark will be released digitally on May 19th as an Xbox Play Anywhere title for Xbox One and PC.
