Header - The Game.jpg




To Light: Ex Umbra is a fantasy RPG that takes cues from many of the classics in terms of aesthetics and play style. The game is very story driven, with deep and engaging characters that each in their own way, help the heroes find their way to light.


The thing that sets To Light: Ex Umbra apart from other fantasy RPGs is that the story is one that edifies Christ. Branch Games, the studio behind the game, is a gaming company made up of believers in Christ who know that in all we do, we are to glorify Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.


At its core, To Light: Ex Umbra is an allegory. It tells the story about darkness. How it enters into us, grows, and consumes us. How it causes us pain, and ultimately costs us our lives. And yet, in the midst of that darkness, there is one who brings light.


Header - Story.jpg


The Kingdom of Ecclesia is close to collapse. The King is missing, presumed dead. The Queen, while once gentle and kind, has turned into a ruthless tyrant. But the real danger? The Princess is plagued by darkness. Physical, tangible darkness that destroys everything it touches.  When she runs from home to try to escape the pain, and to protect those around her, she meets a young man who sees her…the real her. But as the darkness begins to turn on her new friends, it becomes clear that the only way to protect them is to find the source of the darkness, and extinguish it for good. They must travel to the furthest reaches of the world to discover the means to defeat the darkness. They must journey to Light.

@aliensalmon Thanks! The character artist (who is only 15 by the way) is insanely talented! I am so lucky to have him working on this project!


@definite_lee Of course! I am making the game on a Mac, so I will most definitely export a version for both platforms!

Have you figured out a way to make your Deployment file a single file?


When I deploy my game, you can open it in RPG Maker MV and mess with it if you were a Player.


Even able to mess with the files.

Those character portraits are to die for! ^-^ I love the art style too.


I'd be interested to see how you implement it all.

Hey guys! Just wanted to give a quick update!


First of all, To Light is officially on Kickstarter! Go check out the project page for yourself!


< LINK IN SIGNATURE >


Secondly, I am still going to be releasing a demo soon. Our character artist is almost done with a few more character portraits, which will make for a more cohesive playing experience, so I will release the demo as soon as he finishes work on those!


JUST ADDED THE DEMO! BOTH MAC AND PC VERSIONS! LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK :D

Been averaging 2-3 hours sleep for almost a month now. Starting to space out all the time ^^;
tfw, after your game being intensively played by many people, after 5 years, patch after patch released, suddenly an innocent person reported another bug.

OMFG. I had typed \fiPhilosophia Hermetica\fi in a forum post and didn't notice it for AN HOUR.

(Anyone else ever catch themselves doing this?)
