QV

CFK have shared tons of details about QV and its story:

QV features a female protagonist named “Quby” who is destined to protect the balance between dimensions. In the game, she explores ancient ruins to find a way to save the dimensions in crisis.

The universe consists of dimensions connected with each other. In the center of interdimensional passages lies the Dimensional Core, keeping the balance between dimensions. But this balance is about to collapse as the Core stopped working all of a sudden. A girl named “Quby” quickly realized this problem. As the chosen one destined to keep the dimensions stable and balanced, she embarks on a journey to save the Core.

Quby arrives at the Gate, or the cradle of the Dimensional Core. The next moment, she opens a portal to the long-forgotten home planet. Only there she can find the Dimensional Crystals, the fuel to revitalize the Core. Quby dares to solve the mysteries of the old ruins in search of the Crystals. How will Quby’s journey end? Can she save everything from falling apart?

The Gate is the host of every interdimensional passage where only the chosen ones are granted access. Dimensional Core is stored in the Gate.As Quby, players will use the power of the Gate to initiate interdimensional travel, from the Gate to various ruins and vice versa.In the center is the gateway to the ruins.

The ruins in the long-forgotten home planet are located in diverse terrain such as grasslands and deserts. The pilgrimage begins in the Grassland. Flint Golems are guarding the altar in the Great Desert. The ruins are full of riddles made by Quby’s ancestors. To solve the mysteries, she must use the mechanism hidden in the ruins and her power to open the portal. During the journey, Quby will run into beings from other dimensions. Some of them may cooperate with her, but unfortunately it is not the same for others. Unexpected meetings happen when exploring the ruins.

We also have some details about the characters:

  • Quby: The last descendent of the chosen ones who can access the Gate. She is a girl destined to keep the dimensions stable and balanced. Realizing the balance between dimensions is on the verge of collapse, she leaves for the forgotten ruins to revitalize the Dimensional Core.
  • Varon: A penguin swept away from his home world by accident. He is the only sane penguin among his kind. After meeting Quby in the ruins, he decides to cooperate with her.
  • ???: A mysterious, cold girl Quby ran into during the journey. She looks similar to Quby, but her existence and memory unstable. Where could she have come from…?

QV (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet.

Evergate

PQube and Stone Lantern Games have shared some more details about Evergate, which is releasing later this year in Europe and North America:

Slow down time, take aim and unleash the mysterious power hidden within every crystal you encounter with the unique Soulflame mechanic. You can hit multiple crystals at once to experiment with how their energies combine and overcome each challenge according to your own play-style. Rise up to the challenge and collect the essences by completing challenges on every level. Use them to unlock ancient artefacts and boost Ki’s abilities. Up for a challenge? Each level in Evergate features optional conditions to make you rethink its puzzles.

Dive into the touching story of two kindred spirits, guiding the child-like soul Ki on a journey through a beautiful and haunting afterlife. Reveal the memories of a life left behind, moving across time and space to uncover Ki’s mysterious connection to another soul. 

Gorgeous environmental backdrops are paired with beautifully hand-drawn illustrations, bringing both Ki herself and Evergate’s environments to life through a dream-like art style. An elegantly orchestrated original soundtrack provides an enchanting backdrop to Ki’s journey, recorded by a live orchestra and tailor-made for each environment. The hand-drawn characters come to life in Ki’s story.

When Evergate composer Mike Miller’s daughter was born, he wrote a lullaby for her and even made a music box for it.
Now, two years on, the lullaby has evolved to become one of the central pieces of music in Evergate. Inspired in equal parts by Evergate’s main character Ki and by Mike’s daughter, it will be one of the first pieces of music you hear in the game.
