Lightfall is a two-dimensional side-scrolling platformer where you are Knox, a child deity trying to figure out what’s behind the sinister happenings in the mystical world of Numbra. The story is surprisingly compelling, and the collectibles bring even more depth to the narrative. I was lucky enough to play Lightfall on the Nintendo Switch and the game is an excellent fit on the console. Its simplicity in controls and graphics, while still having a competitive aspect through the speed run mode, works well in the hand held configuration.
In this episode, Ben tells us what it’s like to be an indie developer and how it feels to have Bishop Games’ first title release on the Nintendo Switch. He also gives us some insight on future updates to the game that should be solving some common player complaints.
