Emberlight is a true roguelite dungeon crawler, set in a world where the Gods have given you a great gift - and a great curse.

Explore procedurally generated dungeons as a Knight of the Ember Order. Conquer the quests set out before your party, and uncover the lore of the land. Grow your strength by absorbing the abilities of your slain enemies and collecting the powerful traits of dungeon bosses.

Become strong, become quick, become immortal - but be warned - as you fight using unstable Ember powers, they will begin to corrupt and twist your very soul. Every gift of power has its sacrifice; every ability has its cost.

As the Gods fight for control of their creations, you must decide what is good, and what is evil. To protect your people against the dangers of Ember power, you must use its power to your advantage. Will you conquer the dark, or will you lose yourself to corruption?

ABSORB
As a Knight of the Ember Order, you have the ability to absorb the abilities used by your enemies. Every ability used by enemies has a chance to be learned. This allows customization of each character towards whichever goals you have. But each absorbed ability has a cost...

CORRUPT
Every absorbed ability will corrupt your soul. You will slowly lose yourself to evil as the quest progresses. This expresses itself in unstable corruption traits which leads to metamorphosis into an evil being (such as a lich). And you will lose yourself to the corruption...

REPEAT
Each run will last between 30-60 minutes. After completing the quest, the most corrupted will kill off his former allies in an epic battle. This corrupted being will then begin attracting evil around them, and will act as a boss in a future quest once their influence has expanded enough. They will have all the powers you have provided them during the run, providing a never ending challenge in future runs. For every corrupted boss, a stronger party is required to defeat them. And the cycle repeats......forever?

The development team has made the following changes to the game in our October Content Patch Update. This patch is scheduled for release later today. Please read the changes below.

  • Ember Maiden class has been added to the game.
  • Turns that would hang on certain situations with summoning units that would cause the run to be abandoned has been fixed
  • The camera position has been moved back to allow us to increase the detail of each map.
  • All maps have been overhauled or updated due to the new camera settings.
  • All units have been spaced out to provide more variety in their sizes. Bosses are much larger than a regular character.
  • New character portraits have been added to the game for selecting quests and characters prior to launching the game.
  • The loading process for the game has been split up to speed up the game. A loading bar will show the progress when starting the game.
  • Forest and Sewer themes added to the game.
  • The first and second levels will randomly select from different themes. The first level uses either forest or ruins, and the second level uses caves or sewers.
  • You can now suspend a run and continue it at a later date.
  • An ability button was added to the game where you can move your skills around your characters at any time.

Any issues with the patch please report them to us on our discord server.
