Gameplay and Puzzles
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.
Story and World
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.
Art and Music
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.

Evergate will release for Nintendo Switch and Steam later this year!
