Remember Edge of Twilight? No? A quick refresher then: Edge of Twilight is a steampunk fantasy game first announced way back in 2008. Subsequently, in 2009, development ceased and FuzzyEyes, the studio behind the project, laid off the majority of its staff. Now, it appears that both Edge of Twilight and FuzzyEyes – in some capacity – have returned from the brink, with the developer announcing that the game will finally be released in the summer of 2013 on Xbox and PS3. Though it was originally announced for PC as well, there is no mention of the platform in today's press release.
Furthermore, a new game entitled Edge of Twilight - Horizon will be released for free via Apple's App Store (presumably on iOS). Horizon will serve as a prequel of sorts, pitting protagonist Lex against "an important enemy who will later appear in the console versions of Edge of Twilight."
Edge of Twilight takes place in a steampunk fantasy world in which day and night are inhabited by completely different civilizations. Lex is able to switch between both day and night, changing up the gameplay and Lex's appearance. Our own Tokyo Game Show 2008 impressions likened the game to a combination of Soul Reaver and God of War. Check out a 2009 trailer above.

About EDGE OF TWILIGHT
The Edge of Twilight series is a multiplatform, diverse-genre series of steampunk titles, all taking place in the same world, one in which night and day exist as separate realms. The series will not commit to a set genre, but instead focus on a set world, flushing out the characters, world, and story throughout the series. The first title, which is set for release in late 2012, will carry the name of the series itself, EDGE OF TWILIGHT, and will focus around Lex, a half-breed who can bridge the gap between the realms of darkness and light. This forthcoming title will be an action/adventure game with heavy focus on gameplay, story, and puzzles.
