The original inhabitants of this dim underground complex and those who have dared to enter it have either died or have lost their mind. Will you be the exception to the rule?
Procedurally-generated Dungeons - In the underground complex of The Ark, use the environment to your advantage as you fight against enemies in challenging scenarios that change every time you enter the game.
Unlockable Weapons and Items - As you return to the starting camp after death, talk to the different merchant to purchase potent unlockables like new guns and other consumables to help you on your next journey.
Difficulty and Hardcore Play - In the beginning you may die a lot, maybe even "a lot" a lot. Just give Enlightenment and yourself a bit more time and patience and everything's going to be alright.
Smooth, Fast-paced Fighting Experience - As you get through the game, the fluidly-animated action and sense of accomplishment from overcoming what's thrown to you will provide a rewarding experience. Stay wary though, as there are a lot surprises!
Weird, Post-Apocalyptic Story - In Enlightenment, you will obtain scattered information about the world constantly. These jigsaw pieces are hidden in item descriptions, the environment, and through NPC interactions which eventually form a "Big Picture" look about the end of the world and the society, culture, and religion that it left behind.

A roguelike twin-stick shooter with ARPG elements, indie developer Lizard King is punching well above its weight class with Enlightenment. The blending of multiple genres ensures a wide range of tastes will be satisfied with the gameplay. While the heavy use of RNG creates an inconsistent difficulty to each run, the carry over of character progression from one life to the next means every failed run contributes to your advancement.
Enlightenment is a unique game from developer LizardKing. It wears its influences on its sleeve while injecting their own style into the mix. The game doesn’t do much different than you’ve seen before or elsewhere, but you’ll be hard-pressed to put it down. That said, Enlightenment has some issues, most of which can be resolved in patches. There’s a low barrier of entry which makes it easier to get into. If you’re looking for a game that tries something new, does a good job at it, doesn’t break the bank but feels familiar, then check out Enlightenment. So, consider yourself enlightened.
