Publisher Firenut Games, along with developer José Manuel Conesa Hernández, today announced Chrysolite. The title is due out on Switch this summer.

Chrysolite is a 2D Metroidvania-inspired platformer “that engages players with its intriguing narrative and simple, yet challenging gameplay and uses hand-drawn illustrations to advance the narrative.” Additional details can be found in the following overview:

A strange knight sat in front of a fire, darkness surrounding him. His sword stuck in the ground, covered in dried blood. He warns you against going any further, but the intrigue of what lies beyond far surpasses the instinct of self-preservation.

Play as a young thief and explore the dangerous ruins of a once-prosperous kingdom. Fight against hordes of terrifying monsters, make your way through challenging platforming sections, and discover the secret that lies at the very bottom of the ruins in this handcrafted experience.

  • Simple, yet challenging gameplay: Jump, attack, and use the potions you may find along the way. It may seem simple at first but the ruins will put your skills to the test.
  • Fight an army of darkness: As you make your way through the ruins, you will have to face an increasingly challenging cohort of monsters, including a few tough bosses. Groovy.
