This French studio invites you to discover its very first title, a 2D platform and adventure game entirely hand-drawn, tinged with sweetness, humor and adventure. The team, composed of 5 skilled and ambitious enthusiasts, delivers with Lynn and the Spirits of Inao the full scale of its creativity and inspirations, influenced by the greatest figures of Japanese animation such as Hayao Miyazaki.
In Lynn and the Spirits of Inao, players will embody Lynn, an apprentice priestess of the island of INAO where humans, gods and spirits live in harmony, accompanied by her accomplice (and no less demonic spirit) Aku. Obscure elements suddenly disrupting the balance of the island, draw spirits to attack the villagers, leaving a path of panic and distress. The high Priestess, Lynn’s mentor who gets seriously injured during a ceremony, then entrusted her with the difficult task of discovering the origin of this evil and saving the village.
The first title of Bloomylight Studio offers players rich gameplay where day and night, two opposing but interrelated worlds, consequently influence the landscapes and adventure of the protagonists. Lynn can move in several ways (discrete walking, running, jumping, rebounds, slipping or wall jumps) and also fight: in Lynn and the Spirits of Inao, there is no question of "killing" enemies, but rather to help them by sending them into the afterlife, freeing them of their frenzy. Guided by Aku, players go through levels of platforms in an open world and must navigate between the various quests, undercover missions, battles or puzzles and riddles to solve the mysteries of the island Inao .
"We are confident that Lynn and the Spirits of Inao will appeal to gamers! Its dreamlike universe promises a mesmerizing and unforgettable narrative experience and the Lynn and Aku duo is very endearing. We have been working relentlessly for several years to offer the best to the audience, while remaining true to our influences and our style." States David Tollari, founder and creative director of Bloomylight Studio. "For the entire team, the goal is to enable the nostalgic admirers to relive the sensations of old school consoles, and for the younger crowd to discover a style which is today only being harnessed to a limited extent, but just as exciting and thrilling as any other title.”
