For progress, for humanity… for science! Responsible for many of mankind’s greatest achievements, science has done many wonderful things. But experiments to harness the power of shadow? If it sounds dangerous, that’s probably because it is. Especially if something goes wrong and harmless light becomes the deadliest thing imaginable…
Set in a world where the rules of light and shadow no longer apply, One Upon Light sees you exploring the ruined remains of the Aurora Science’s labs in search of answers. What happened here? Who are you? And, most importantly, will things ever be the same again? The answers are there to find but whatever you do, don’t go into the light…
From The Top – Top-down puzzle gameplay sees you using the unique properties of light and shadow to explore and overcome obstacles.
Shadow Complex – Use switches, blocks, carts and other techniques to create shadows, blocking out the light that will otherwise end your adventure…
Echo, Echo, Echo – Use the power of the Shadow Echo to ‘record’ shadows as they appear, then use them to progress even if the real shadow vanishes.
Shades Of Grey – Visually charming and inspired by classic black and white cartoons, One Upon Light is a true test of skill, brains and photophobia

One Upon Light is a puzzle game where you play a scientist who must explore an abandoned research facility. The game uses a top-down perspective with black and white visuals. The controls are a bit odd but you'll get used to them. It's a game about light and darkness. You'll push things and use levers in order to interact with the light. That way you'll be able to create shadows that you can use. You see, light is your enemy in this game so you must stay in the shadows at all time. Fortunatly you'll have a special power called Shadow Echo that you can use to record and use shadows that you'll encounter. The gameplay is very clever but it lacks variety. The levels and situations are too similar so you might get bored quickly. It's a fun little game nonetheless.
