About Chiaroscuro

Chiaroscuro is a 2D adventure platformer with metroidvania elements. Explore a world that has fallen into darkness and discover the Lights to illuminate your forgotten past.

In a world where 95% of the population has suddenly forgotten pieces of their past, take the role of Rose, a mysterious amnesiac and go on an adventure to seek out the Lights: magical objects that have been rumored to restore the memories of those who find them.

Rose is not the only one seeking out these powerful Lights. Using quick and responsive combat, battle your way through dangerous situations by swinging your trusty thorn and casting a plethora of elemental spells.

Throughout your adventure in search of the Lights, you will gain a wide range of abilities that will assist you in furthering your quest through over a dozen unique environments, in addition to backtracking through locations you’ve already explored using tight and satisfying platforming.


  • A riveting and interactive storyline.
  • Challenging combat and platforming.
  • Tight and satisfying gameplay.
  • A variety of gameplay mechanics through the use of elemental casting.
  • Uncover the mysterious history of Chiaroscuro through optional side-quests and be rewarded for exploration.
