Welcome back to the universe of Dandara, the unique and award winning 2D metroidvania platformer full of mystical creatures and boundless exploration. To celebrate the game’s second anniversary, Long Hat House and Raw Fury are proud to reveal the upcoming Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition! (Update is on the house! – Cake will not be included)
A world is now on the brink of collapse, those feeling the oppression of a crushing tyranny have their will completely restrained. But resistance offers a ray of freedom, one who scoffs at the laws of physics while battling this overwhelming despotism. Her name is Dandara. Defy gravity as you jump across floors, walls, and ceilings, discovering the mysteries and secrets throughout the world of Salt in your quest to bring freedom and balance to the world.
SO, WHAT’S THE JUICY NEW CONTENT IN TRIALS OF FEAR?
Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition introduces a ton of brand new content, all of which will be free to download to all existing owners of the game!
ENTER THE HIDDEN REALMS – Three new areas to explore, a new big boss, new powers for Dandara, a new ability, new music tracks, a new “secret” ending, as well as many quality of life updates. Whew!
UNCOVER THE SALT – A whole new focus on story, fleshing out the lore of the world of Salt and its inhabitants. Find new descriptions, dialogues and cut-scenes for both new and existing characters and environments!
NEW SOUNDTRACK – 16 new music tracks focus on the gloomy aesthetics that reverberates in all hidden places of the Salt. The music of Trials of Fear was composed specifically to enhance the new area to be discovered. Piano notes that will reverberate on the narrow corridors and mix with the silence presented will set a tone for the Hidden Realms, the new region of the Salt. As we focused a lot on improving the narrative in the whole play-through, music will also contribute when a little extra on emotions will be needed. We hope you enjoy this track we selected for you as a preview of what’s coming!
Last but not least, we remastered the original soundtrack for this new release, as we thought many of you would like to replay Dandara for a fresh experience:
Weight of a Doubt is, without a doubt (sorry), one of the most loved pieces of music in the entire soundtrack and it’s also excellent at demonstrating Dandara’s aesthetics. It has melodies and chords that flow and give weight for a world that is conflicting in the belief of trusting the hopeful Dandara or in the practical and greedy Eldar, so nothing better to hype all of you to this new coming expansion, right? Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition is developed by Brazilian indie game development studio Long Hat House and published by Raw Fury. The new edition is coming soon to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows, MacOS, Linux, iOS and Android.
