Emberlight is a true roguelike dungeon crawler, set in a world where the Gods have given you a great gift - and a great curse. Explore procedurally generated dungeons as a Knight of the Ember Order. Conquer the quests set out before your party, and uncover the lore of the land. Grow your strength by absorbing the abilities of your slain enemies and collecting the powerful traits of dungeon bosses. Become strong, become quick, become immortal - but be warned - as you fight using unstable Ember powers, they will begin to corrupt and twist your very soul. Every gift of power has its sacrifice; every ability has its cost. As the Gods fight for control of their creations, you must decide what is good, and what is evil. To protect your people against the dangers of Ember power, you must use its power to your advantage. Will you conquer the dark, or will you lose yourself to corruption?


Emberlight is the first spin-off from the Imagine Nations "fusion" genre concept, where we are focusing on the RPG/dungeon crawler elements in a more simple concept that plays well both on mobile as well as PC. Emberlight also lays the foundation for interconnectivity between players while playing single player which will be expanded upon in game two as we connect into the "Trinity" concept.


  • You have the ability to absorb the abilities used by your enemies.
  • Every absorbed ability will corrupt your soul which expresses itself in unstable corruption traits.
  • After completing the quest, the most corrupted will kill off his former allies in an epic battle.
  • For every corrupted boss, a stronger party is required to defeat them. And the cycle repeats......forever?

About Quarter Onion Games

Quarter Onion Games is an indie game studio focused on breaking the barriers between both genres and platforms.  This will be accomplished through addictive and fun games combined with platforms that preserve the single player charm while allowing the community to come together and accomplish larger goals within the connected games.  Our target platforms will initially be mobile and PC, with expansion into console when the games best supports it. Our first game is Emberlight, a roguelike dungeon crawler that incorporates absorbing enemy abilities in a race against their corruption.  Two other projects are in conceptual stages that will build off of Emberlight and provide the framework for interaction between all 3 games in exciting new ways.  A fourth mobile game, Warkeep, is temporarily on hiatus as a potential sponsorship deal is in the works.  Development will continue once it is finalized.
