Humanity's Story in the Darkness

Centuries ago, the sun sank into the sea, leading to the Dark Mist enveloping the lands. At the same time, great, towering beings began to appear. These were the Colossus. They brought light to the areas surrounding them and in turn, humanity found its last and only refuge.

Thousands of years after the Colossi appeared, a mysterious illness beset these creatures of the light and they began to fall…

Following the trail of the falling Colossi, Terrence the Courier and his companions embark on an arduous journey. They will encounter figures benevolent and evil, seal or witness their fate, and unveil the truth behind the dark world.
Thanks Farflame!

The title is appealing. But is this pretentiousness for the sake of pretentiousness or is there anything deeper here?

A formally mobile only game with some small levels and a bit buggy atm. It might be okay and worth a look at a discount. I'm not sure how the game actually plays.

I played the original mobile game and it was ok. Ambitious for a mobile game but suffered from mobile limitations, particularly the control scheme. So it might be better as a PC game, but I wouldn't go in expecting anything with the quality of Dark Souls.

Sounds a bit pretentious, to me. But if the game is about how Pascal's Wager falls to bits when you start to think about it, I might be interested.

So it's a ported mobile game that just means my interest is now diminished.

I gave it a try, and it's not very good imo. It feels like a clunky Dark Souls but with worse writing and voice acting. It's also easy to tell that the textures were upscaled from a much lower reolution.
