Strayed Lights has us embody an unbalanced being of both the light and dark, which is battling its way through a ruined world to beat its inner demons and achieve something called an awakening. The road will be tough, filled with challenging combat that will force us to counter, strike, and master the wonderful art of parrying via "intuitive controls." By switching between its orange and blue states of being, you'll have a chance to absorb your opponents' energy and, in turn, unleash devastating attacks to bring them down. Joining us on our noble quest to help the colourful creature will be a tiny mote of light, which will attempt to soothe the souls of our adversaries, which are battling their own inner demons — and presumably losing.

“Strayed Lights will be an unforgettable experience for action-adventure fans of all ages when it releases across the most modern gaming platforms in a few weeks,” Ember's co-founder and creative director Alexandre Arramon says. “From a combat system designed to be easy to learn but challenging to master to an intricate universe based on emotions that everyone can feel connected to, we put our heart and soul into our first game. We’re all extremely proud of the outcome and can’t wait to share it with the world soon."

Strayed Lights heads to Xbox on April 25th. Will you be joining this colourful adventure? Drop a comment below and let us know!
