Humanity had a good run but it was never smart enough to avoid self-defeat. Thankfully the end of humans isn’t the end of the world, and the planet seems to be healthier for it. Lost Ember is an adventure in a post-human world where a sprite can transform into any animal it comes across, using their abilities to travel and find out what befell the people who used to live there. Fish, birds, and land-based creatures are all doing quite well for themselves so there’s no shortage of animals to transform into, but the lush richness of life doesn’t change that, whatever the history of humanity may have been, it ended in tragedy. Maybe the lesson of Lost Ember is it’s best not to dwell on the past? Whatever it may be, at the very least there’s a beautiful world teeming with life waiting to be explored and played as, so it should work out just fine.
Lost Ember revealed its release date of November 22 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One (Switch version coming later) in its new trailer. Give it a look below to see a nice selection of animal abilities at play.
