A Rose in the Twilight has been confirmed as being releasing in North America and Europe in 2017 with the title heading to PlayStation Vita and Steam.
According to NIS America, the title will be available in Standard and Limited editions in North America and only in Limited Edition in Europe through the NIS online stores in the respective countries. The title was first released in Japan as “Roze to Tasogare no Kojou”.
The puzzle platformer takes you through a journey of a girl and a sleeping giant who you have to help to escape the curse of Thorns. As the player, you will control the girl and the giant and enable them to escape as the plot unravels the mystery of the thorns and the history behind the somber castle. Beyond the story, each of the stages in the game is a puzzle that you need to solve to advance. The further you go, the harder it gets and with higher risks, the rewards are higher as well.
In the game, you use Rose’s power to absorb blood and transfer it to static objects. By doing so, colorless objects become red and regain the essence of time. You will also need to make use of the giant’s super strength by lifting and throwing objects to clear your path.
Discover how to solve each stage as you delve deeper into the story’s grim origins. Some of the key features of the game are:
Color & Time – Without color and time, the player cannot progress, but with Rose’s power you can take advantage of both these key elements.
Blood Memories – Splatters of blood are waiting to be found all throughout the castle, and each one contains a gruesome death.
Visual Storytelling – Collect Blood Memories to unlock the past by watching a series of vignettes pieced together by each victim’s death.
Live, Die, Repeat – Utilize both Rose’s and the giant’s power to solve each stage, but if death happens to cut your journey short, be careful not to make the same mistake twice.
