A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux



Jan 28, 19: Hellow all! I know it's been a long long wait, so much so that Jan 31st is coming around again, and I'd like to clarify that this date was from last year. I'm still working on EL, I update frequently on DiscordTwitter and Tumblr and I'm currently around 92% fo the way there!


 

Torn from her home, an unfortunate soul finds herself caught in old and buried secrets. The virulent elves who claim the poison within her have imprisoned her on their stormy island, some eager to see what will become of her, others eager to keep their secrets safe. 

She finds herself exploited, bolstered, and hunted. Her allies are unlikely. Lovers, even less so. It is, perhaps, the chance she's been waiting for her whole life. Or, perhaps, she just wants to go home. Be it an unwitting catalyst, a harbinger of destruction, or a pitiable human doomed to die, the island is unforgiving, and the poison quickly spreading.

Ebon Light is a dark fantasy visual novel with romantic subplots, lots of choices, a customizable protagonist, and multiple ways to die.

Feel free to get get in contact over at Discord, Twitter or Tumblr.

Or, of course...

I downloaded your demo last fall and have bookmarked your page so I can check your blog. I can't wait for you to release the whole thing, you're doing such an amazing job and it's SO worth the wait!

Interesting so far, can't wait for the full release. :3

(+1)

This game is stunning and had me hooked from the first moments I started playing. Can't wait for release!

(+1)

This game is very beautiful and unusual, I am very happy there will be a full release soon)))

(+10)

Hey! I know this last percent taking so long, I apologize! Still working! Might be a little while yet, but I'm doing all I can.

So touched that so many people have been enjoying EL--I'm so glad so many have enjoyed it. It amazes me, and I'm eager to give you guys the full game asap!

(+6)

We believe in you ! 

So excited for the release! But I have a question and I'm sorry if this comes off as a complaint. That's not my intention. Why is this last 1% taking so long?

(+3)

Hey! I know it's taking so long and the last percent taking this long is especially obnoxious and disappointing. I miscalculated, (unsurprisingly I bet to those who have seen my missing release dates before), my own ability to work and how fast things would get done, but at the very least I promise I am working on EL. I apologize for this wait. <3

Really enjoying your game! The artwork is gorgeous, and the story has me hooked. :>

It's getting so close now!!! I'd say by the end of the month (no rush of course, Ahnna!) <3 <3 <3

Great stoyline/plot captivated me!! Please continue to update can't wait to play the full version!!!   \(^w^)/

(+2)(-1)

I've been along for a ride for so long, but really, its only a fraction of the time you've put into this masterpiece. Thank you for all your hard work. <3


-that one lurker that pops in up in discord from time to time to say good job. <3

(+7)

99%!!!

(+3)

98.8%! Get excited!!

(+6)

98.5% everyone. We're getting close ~ 

(+6)

I decided to go through the wiki and was really interested. I decided not to play the demo cuz I knew I would break my head on the suspense. Really looking forward to the full release! 

(+6)

I played the demo and now I'm completely intrigued.  I wouldn't normally want to replay a demo but I'm enjoying seeing the consequences of different decisions too much.  I'm glad it's nearly complete - good luck with that last 4%, nearly there!

(+1)

I love this so much- I absolutely cannot wait for the full release! The concept is so entrancing, and I especially love Lacey. <3 Good luck in your final push!

(+2)

94% Done! (you can check how far along the prodject is by going to her blog at www.underbliss.com of which I have checked in every other day since last January and can not express how happy I am that it's so close to completion, great work creator!)

Omg I LOVE THIS! The art is not my style at first, but the more I play, the more I find it beautiful~ Actually, from all of those screenshots, the one that caught my eyes and made me decide to play this game is the one with the monster crawling out from the crack. XD About the plot, I don't know how to feel about it yet but it's sure full of surprises and well written. :'3 Usually, I can predict the character's behavior quite good but not in this case it seems. ^^; Anyway,  can't wait for the full release to court my baes! Hell, even if this game was commercial one, I would be gladly give my money to you. Keep up the good work! OvOb

We can't wait to play the full version of the game! Thank you for your hard work <3

Hey, guys! It's January 6th and Ahnna has completed 88% of the game. Your nice comments are greatly appreciated <3 

We are developing a Wikia for the game, so feel free to contribute or read it! https://reverie-ebon-light.fandom.com/wiki/Reverie:_Ebon_Light_Wiki 

(Big thanks to @chaftoo who had the idea and is working hard to develop it!)

The art in this game is beautiful, the story is creative and well written, I love the characters and the choice to change your character's clothing, hair, skin  colour and personality is great.

I love the detail that's gone into the creation of this game and I cannot wait to enjoy it once it's finished.

Recently stumbled upon this beautiful game and just wanted to thank you.
That's wonderful on so many levels.
P.S. Lacey one love ^_^

hahahhah yes, team lacey!

*whispering* team vadeyn

Me too, dont tell anyone I like nice guys. :3

I wish I could describe how amazing this game is. The artwork is beautiful, the characters are deep, the plot leaves me spinning. The added touch of being able to customize your character immerses me even further into the story, I feel like i'm actually in the moment trying to figure out how to survive in this strange world. What makes it even more shocking is that it's free. This game is a jewel and worth so much more. I can't wait for it to be completed just so I can play it over and over again. 

(+2)

This game looks amazing, I look forward to seeing the finished version. Keep up the great work! :)

(+3)

In case anyone doesn't regularly check her blog, she is done with 77% of the game as of November 28th, 2018! I'm so excited for its completion and cannot wait to get back to enjoying this absolute gem! <3

I fall in love with this game. Ebon Light demo is absolutely amazing! So beautifully done. And I love the customizable MC.

I LOVED THE DEMO, I can't belive this game will be free, IT IS TOO MUCH PERFECT TO BEE FREE. I'm glad I just discovered it, from what I can understand is "nearly" done, and as soon I will finish it I'll surely make a donation, really this is the type of content I love to see on itch.io. Great, great job developer! I have a question though, just out of curiosity, there is a content rating for this game, like 15+, 16+ or 18?

(+1)

Not 100% sure since it's been awhile since I played the demo, but I would say 15+. It has some suggestive stuff if I remember correctly, but nothing R rated

Thank you!

(+5)

I love this demo! It's amazing, I'm very excited for this game. It's also nice to see how much you care for this project. I also don't mind that this game has passed a few of your deadlines. I can't even imagine doing something this brilliant all on my own and just knowing that, that's the boat your in makes it completely understandable.

I'm sorry I've not commented sooner, I'd known about it awhile now but never thought to post how wonderful a job you've done. I hope your not working yourself too hard and manage to get some time in for yourself.

Can't wait to see the entirety of what you've made. I know it's going to be fantastic! :)

Nope, sorry! The love interests are: Vadeyn, Laceaga, Haron, Ernol and Duliae.

Just so you all know, in the discord's general el chat, Ahnna has been updating us on her progress. She's about 30% complete. Please just be a little more patient with her and all will be well! She's working super hard because she wants  this to be perfect. I'm sure we will all be more than happy at the end of it! (Especially since that doll is givin' us this rad game for free!) So be a little more patient, friends!

(+1)

I am really in love with this! So well made! I hope you finish this soon, because I don't think I can wait for too long! ... I mean, of course I can wait, I don't have much of a choice here anyway.  hahahah

i will wait until its finished i get to impatient wjen im left hanging

(+11)

Hello all, I've posted an update on underbliss.com, going into a bit of detail about what's been going on with me. I apologize for the extreme wait on this project and plan to update much more frequently until it's finally done.

Thank you very much for the kind and encouraging comments <3

(+3)(-1)

still nothing :( not even an update

(+6)

Any official updates (besides discord)? There hasn't been any recent activity on tumblr or the main website. 

(+5)

Is this still being made?

(+3)

Yes, it still is. You can always join the discord channel and chat with the Author and get earlier updates. 

(+4)(-3)

To be honest I hope that Calipoa is a potential love interest.

Same, was disappointed when she didn't have a heart on her portrait.

I'm in LOVE with the demo!!!! A brilliant job! Thank you for creating it!
