Description
Release date: Fourth quarter 2018
This is the story of a lone soul that has one night to fight their way through the darkness of Mr. Grinny's world to find her soul's light. The entire game focuses on survival and exploration gameplay in a hand painted watercolor world created from the memories of Grinny's victims.

"its true brilliance creeps up in unexpected ways"
- Joanna Mueller, Cliqist

Soul’s Light is inside all of us. It is the driving force that keeps us moving. It’s also a source of power that Mr. Grinny seeks to steal so that he can enter our world. In the game, all Soul’s Light is hidden in items of meaning to the characters. You must find these items to collect enough light to defeat Mr. Grinny.

Soul’s Light is all about Exploration and Survival. Gameplay is kept simple so you are drawn into the game's characters and story. You can harness the power of your Soul’s Light to distract and in some cases destroy shadow creatures if they are not too powerful. As you use your Soul’s Light, the world becomes less saturated as your light dwindles. You must find Soul Light orbs before it goes out for good. During the game, you will come across other lost souls searching for their Soul’s Light, who you will join to take a final stand against Mr. Grinny.

FEATURES:
- Hand Painted 2D watercolor world.
- 5 different Locations to Explore and discover their secrets.
- Survival style gameplay, with classic platforming elements.
- Shadow Creatures whose only goal is to find and destroy you.
- An engaging story with an emotional core.
- Quirky characters you meet along the way that need your help.
- Random Game Over animations that change with every death from tame to terrifying.

During my childhood, I was often plagued by the same nightmare. A shadowed creature with a hideous sharp-toothed grin would come to my room at night. I would throw my sheets over my head or hide under the bed, but he would always find me and flash that hideous grin, as his long sharp claws grasped me.

I began to call him Mr. Grinny.

Now I can share with the world the terror of Mr. Grinny...

Wow! What a chilling introduction! It's giving me some real Limbo vibes, but with more backstory behind it. I hope it comes out, and if it does, I'd love to play it!
