Discover Polar Opposites in Steam Nextfest With Edge of Sanity and Into the Emberlands

Embark on an expedition into the mind-breaking wilderness of Alaska, and warm yourself up afterwards on a journey through the Emberlands. New trailers available!

Hamburg, Germany / June 13th, 2024 – Publisher Daedalic Entertainment together with developers Vixa Games and Tiny Roar promise a journey full of contrasts for the current Steam Next Fest with the release of demos for two uniquely captivating games, Edge of Sanity and Into the Emberlands. Daedalic Entertainment offers players a chance to dive into divergent realms—one filled with the cozy, mystical adventures of Into the Emberlands, launching into Early Access on June 19th, and the other, Edge of Sanity, a descent into madness and horror. 

Edge of Sanity, set in the harsh wilderness of Alaska, challenges players to lead a group of survivors in a 2D survival horror game inspired by Cthulhu mythology. As you scavenge and explore, a gripping storyline unravels that will confront you with eldritch horrors and encroaching madness beyond human comprehension. In stark contrast, Into the Emberlands invites players to a magical world brimming with ever-changing landscapes and mystical creatures. Rescue villagers lost in the Miasma, gather resources, and rebuild your village to create a safe haven. Together, these games showcase the diverse experiences waiting at Steam Next Fest from Daedalic—catering to a broad group of gamers, from the cozy to the chilling.

About Edge of Sanity

Edge of Sanity is a survival horror game with a psychological edge set in the unforgiving wilderness of a cold war-era Alaska, featuring handcrafted 2D art and an intense atmosphere inspired by the famous Cthulhu myth.

You were part of a resupply group helping scientists working in a camp far in the remote Alaskan wilderness. Finding the site devoid of humanity, you stumble upon horrifying creatures, and during the escape your group splits up. You were lucky enough to make it out alive, and you set up camp to plan your future expeditions to find your missing team and learn what happened.

Every day here is a tough fight for survival. Food and supplies are limited, and your sanity is stretching over the edge. Be prepared to improvise and look for any advantage you might have against various monstrosities. It’s all up to you whether the darkness fully consumes you, or you manage to cling to what remains of your sanity.

You are the Lightbearer. Take your trusty lantern and set out into the Emberlands to rescue the Knacks who lost their way in the wilds. Collect resources on your explorations and lead the Knacks back to their village. Use your resources and the new inhabitants to rebuild the village and expand it from a few shacks to a safe haven! But be aware: If your lantern’s light fades while you’re out exploring, you will become a lost one yourself, and the next Lightbearer will need to step into your shoes…

Set out to discover beautiful procedurally generated biomes while looking for lost ones, and meet quirky inhabitants on your way, from lazy trolls and crazy scientists, to…chickens?! They all offer their own quests and bargains to you. While some may seem rather dubious, they all promise unique rewards, from resources and tools to upgrades to your equipment. Choose which offers you are willing to take—it’s all up to you!

About Vixa Games

Vixa Games was founded in 2016 by a group of passionate indie developers in Gdańsk, Poland. The team strives for a unique and eye-catching art style and an uncommon mix of genres and themes, so their games are usually a bit twisted, just like the crew themselves.  Although they have a fondness for silliness–both overall quality and the studio’s motto, “Life is too short to play boring games,” are strongly reflected in all of Vixa Games’ products.
