Publisher Playism and developer Nocras have announced a release date for Tasomachi: Behind the Twilight. The 3D platformer will launch on April 14 on Steam and GOG.

In Tasomachi, explorer Yukumo traverses the world in her airship. But when it breaks down near a city, she finds all the inhabitants have mysteriously disappeared.

Tasomachi is a relaxing 3D platformer with no enemies or life gauges to worry about. Yukumo can double jump, dash, and airdrop through the tunnels, temples, and grand sights of the city, inspired by the art and geography of East Asia and the gameplay of late 90s platformers.

While exploring Yukumo  will receive requests from the cat-like Nezu Tribe to collect various resources to repair the ship, earn new outfits, and decorate Yukumo’s home among the Nezu.

“I enjoy making 2D and 3D art for myself and others, but I felt a need to express myself and the beauty of the world, which I could only do properly through a video game of my own,” said Nocras, the sole developer of Tasomachi. “It also feels like the world unfairly abandoned the collect-a-thon platformer, and I want to bring that genre back with beautiful visuals that create the same sense of melancholy and joy that I originally felt in my youth.”

Tasomachi: Behind the Twilight will launch on April 14 on PC.
