Dusk 2Today we bring you back five years to 2012 and submerge you in the ephemeral, haunting world of Dusk in its sequel, plainly named Dusk 2. And really, what genre could fit the bill better than a platformer combined with time travel? In case you don't remember the original, you lead a lonely square character through an empty world. The intentionally vague and short slivers of story superimposed on the background and through signage masterfully impose the aura of mystery, yet leave the details malleable to interpretation by the mind of the viewer. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, we can safely conclude NTFusion was very flattered by the original - it takes a discerning eye to see that these games were crafted by two different authors.

Controls are explained further in the game, but left and right arrow keys (or [A] and [D]) navigate through this side-scroller, up (or [W]) jumps, [CTRL] switches levers, and holding [S] reverses time. The game consists of sequential levels and is short, so take time to explore and smell the roses. There is nothing here should challenge seasoned players of platform games, especially as erasing a mistake is as simple as reversing time a little while - hold [S] if you get stuck. You may have to be in the mood to fully enjoy leading your square character through this mysterious world, but sit back and surrender yourself to the wistfully enchanting music. I'm sure the goosebumps on your skin are telling you something.

Play Dusk 2
