Evergate A 2D Puzzle Platformer By Stone Lantern Games, LLC

About Evergate


Players guide a child-like soul named Ki on her journey through the afterlife. This modern fable was inspired by movies, games, and legends we love. It draws from the wonder of The Neverending Story, the hand-drawn aesthetic of Child of Light, and the Greek myth of Orpheus' descent into the underworld.

Game Play

Evergate is an expansive 2D puzzle-platformer featuring a unique align-to-shoot mechanic. Unleash your Soulflame and harness energy trapped within crystals to solve puzzles, find lost memories, and save your kindred spirit.

Evergate blends cerebral puzzles with skill-based execution. The goal of each puzzle is to reach the gate at the end however you can. Some players may opt for a straightforward route while others will strive for the more difficult complete solution using every crystal. This offers challenges for casual and hardcore gamers alike.

Core Features

  • Unique align-TO-shoot mechanic. Your aim only energizes when it connects with an afterlife target. This small twist on the classic aim-AND-shoot mechanic opens up brand new challenges.
  • World filled with crystal powers. New powers keep the simple premise fresh while adding nuance and depth.
  • Over 100 challenging puzzles. Perfect for quick, casual play and competitive speed-running.
  • One puzzle, many solutions. Explore a creative space full of possibilities. Find solutions we didn't intend!
  • Simple to learn. Hard to master.
  • Storytelling with style. Emotional and gripping narrative told through hand-crafted art and music.
