The last animals have died and it's down to you to rescue each of their souls to bring them back to Mother’s Ark. You glide, jump, and dash through the world to evade deadly traps and chasms. As you go you use your power to clear the oil that consumes the world, face hungry Devourers, and break souls free.
As you progress you discover a huge world filled with surreal imagery of a long-lost human past. The forests have died and the cities have crumbled. You must find a way through these spaces, the dry seas and polluted skies to find the animals you can save. Along the way, you spread life and beauty on her path.
The result is a story of contrasts. It's a sombre look at a world decimated by human impact. The low view of humanity may not be to everyone's taste, but before the game is done we discover that our part in the story is not only as agents of extinction, but also of progress, love, and hope.
