Twilight,, definitely an old school first person shooter from 2018 gets an even older teacher who riffs on classic puzzle games like The Chip Challenge and Sokoban. And no, this is not a joke, although the first word about its existence fell on April 1.
Twilight ’82 has everything you would expect from a Twilight game – guns, cultists, explosions – except that it is now based on playing at a snail’s pace compared to the incredible speed of the original game. As such, the demo is less focused on flicker, Earthquake-Inspired shooting and more for strategic bullet avoidance, pushing blocks and solving puzzles.
What else, Twilight ’82 will come with a level editor that allows you to create your own puzzles full of dangers from scratch. Players can then trade these levels by exchanging simple text strings. The game will also include support for Steam Workshop, which allows even more sharing and customization.
As mentioned, Twilight creator David Szymanski initially released the word for his new puzzle on April 1 and let everyone continue to believe it was a joke. But not! Here we are a week later and the real puzzle is now included on Steam. This is the best possible hit.
Twilight ’82 there is currently no release date, but Szymanski said it should be ready “in a few months”.
