A downloadable Elypse for Windows

Every ten years, a sacrifice must be made to protect your people from the Abyss, a mysterious and insatiable force, as worshiped as it is feared… This time YOU were chosen… Nobody has ever returned but perhaps you can achieve the impossible ?

  • A light and handy character. Stand up to traps and dangers with agility!
  • Traverse the abyss with the intuitive dash system.
  • Overcome horrors that lie ahead with a powerful slash system.
  • Take advantage of a variety of unlockable skills and abilities in order to survive the gruelling trials of Elypse.

I just subscribe to itch.io just to leave a comment... I'm not used to play platformer games (unless we talk about Super Mario series on the nes / snes)... And I must tell I'm really impressed with your game. I just finished it and it feels like I would totally have bought a game like that (with some hours of gameplay of course). I hope your game will expand, it has the potential to please a lot of people I think. A fonctionality to change control mapping would be appreciated, though. Keep going anyway, I had a lot of fun playing this ! <3 <3 <3 !!!

Je viens de capter que vous étiez français, alors un petit message en français... Pour vous dire que j'ai refais la démo déjà 3 fois ce soir. J'ai vraiment hâte d'en voir plus, continuez comme ça c'est génial. :)

De toute façon, je ne pouvais pas espérer mieux de la part d'une équipe avec deux Maxime ! (Vous l'aurez probablement deviné, c'est également mon prénom :p)

Bref, encore bravo, je me suis rarement autant amusé sur un jeu de plateforme alors lorsque votre jeu sortira si vous menez le projet à terme, comptez sur moi pour vous faire de la pub ! :)

Oh, et... Lors de la fin de ma dernière partie, j'ai réussi à "glitcher" le jeu, en utilisant la propulsion des tirs + les dashs, j'étais tellement haut que lorsque la cinématique s'est déclenché je suis arrivé dans le trou derrière le côté droit de la plateforme ! :p (je n'arrive plus à le refaire par contre XD)

Hello Maxime, merci beaucoup pour ce feedback qui fait chaud au cœur! Nous allons faire de notre possible pour poursuivre la création d'Elyspe après nos études et tiendrons bien sûr la communauté au courant via twitter (@ElypseG). Une nouvelle version plus complète sera d'ailleurs disponible courant décembre :)

J'ai hâte !Je viendrai régulièrement me tenir au courant de l'avancée. :)

I play platform games ever since I was 10. The visual of this game left a good impression and seems promising. 

*Gently clicking download

Thank's for the feedback! We will post a new version in December :)

I usually never play platformers, but something about the aesthetic of the game got me to give it a try, and I really like the fluidity of motion and challenging gameplay!

Since I'm not that experienced with platformers yet, I haven't gotten too far, but I'm guessing I'll be continuing to try and improve, because it is surprisingly fun :)


Thank you for you message! We are improving the game to release a better demo in december on Steam and Itch.io, we hope you will like what's next ;)

It's really fun with the controller.

I have often died from the beginning, but when you have internalized the controls a bit, it feels like a classic game.
Thank you

Thank you very much for your feedback! We are working on a greater demo for a release on Steam and Itch.io in december, we hope you will like what is to come ;)

I really wanna play but i can't use e (the magnet sphere) and i need that to move on, can you please fix really love the and the game style but the keyboard controls are messed up. and the settings don't work can't click on it


You have to press E into the magnet to get into it. We are still polishing our keyboard controller. Try to play with your controller if you can, we will let you know when a better version is released :)

oh thank you for responding,thats never happened to me before,will do

This game is very fun! I haven't played many metroidvanias but this is my favorite so far

Thank you very much for your feedback! :D We will release a longer more polished demo on Steam and itch.io in december.

If only I could even play the game... looks fun however you can hardly pass the first section on Keyboard and Mouse considering your dash ability only goes the correct direction like a quarter of the time.

I guess I will wait until better support comes out.

Well we are sorry you experimentend these issues, we are still polishing the mouse & keyboard controller. It will get better in future updates :)

One of the best (and hardest) metroidvania I've played for a while but I hope there will be more lore to this new universe.

I'm a student and I would like to know if there is a place for a free&starting developper and if there is a form for that, thanks and good luck for the game.

Hello! Thank you for your feedback we are working on a bigger Demo released on Steam and Itch on December :)

I'm sorry but we also are still students in their last year of study. We will create our company after finishing our studies. We hope you'll find the experience your searching for! :P

Well at least I have a quick answer not the good one but still. So good luck on this game and for the others to come :D

One of the best games I played
Thank you

We are very happy you liked it. We are working on a greater demo for Steam & Itch.io which will be available in december. Thank you for playing Elypse's first demo :)

i die a LOT in this one, but man is it good as a game :D

Thank you very much, we are still working on improving the game for a bigger Demo destined to itch and steam. I hope you will like our next version of the game. Until then cheers and thanks you for the feedback! :)

i tried to play it as it looks really fun and i love the art style, but the A key doesnt work, so i cant go left.


We are happy to tell you that you can now play using a QWERTY or AZERTY keyboard on Elypse 1.2 :)

If you feel so tell us abour your experience about the demo.

once again, art style and gameplay might be good to, but it clearly wasnt made to be played on a keyboard and mouse, most of the times instead of dashing up or down, if my mouse its 1cm too up or down it will go straight, still, artstyle amazing, love these types of games, hope everything works well.


Thank you for your feedback! Yes it was designed for a controller however we are still polishing keyboard controls. We will keep you posted for next updates :)
