In Earth Night, players will be tasked to take back the Earth from a dragon invasion. You’ll take on the role of at least two playable characters, a 14-year-old high school girl and a photographer as they run and jump their way across procedurally created levels to save the world. Earth night looks like it combines features from gamers favorite auto-runners like Super Meat Boy and Bit.Trip.Runner and looks to add some rogue-like elements as well.
