Content Warning: Flashing images, characters getting lost in the forest, being chased by monsters, potentially claustrophobic situations.

Fade Away is a 2 player asymmetric couch co-op puzzle adventure game for Mac and PC about two friends trying to escape a magical forest before they fade away forever. Players will punch monsters, channel magic, and push around rocks in 5 unique levels as they search for a way out! Fade Away supports both keyboard controls and Joy-Con controls, and it features accessibility settings to accommodate players.

Sit down with a friend and set out into the forest as Willow and Amber. Willow's newfound magical powers help them conjure new paths forward through the woods and freeze monsters in their tracks, while Amber's bravery and strength make her great at moving even the heaviest boulders and punching apart monsters. Use your asymmetric abilities to the fullest and play to each other's strengths! But beware, this forest is not safe, and as you stray away from each other, you'll fade out of existence with every passing second. Solve puzzles, fight off monsters, and find your way out of the fog, before it's too late!

Fade Away provides approximately 30 minutes of content, though this will vary since some puzzles can take multiple tries, or you could feasibly speed run the whole game in about half the time.

To make sure more people can enjoy this game, Fade Away features accessibility options in its Assist Mode. Players may choose to automatically succeed quick-time events, and they may choose to fade away more slowly.

Fade Away was created by Violet Fairy and Yi Xin Tan, with music from the amazing Andrea Mendoza, Jun Matoba, Adam Greis, and William Perry, and usability testing thanks to the incredible Yunrui "Billy" Wang and Justin Korn! Thank you so much to everyone who made this game possible!

To connect Joy-Con controllers, first turn on Bluetooth on your computer. Next, disconnect your Joy-Cons from your Switch. Finally, hold down the sync button (a small round button between the SL and SR buttons) on each Joy-Con until the LED lights start flashing. This works for both Mac and PC.

--- Update 1.1 Notes! ---

In the second to last level, the final solo sokoban puzzle has haunted my dreams for weeks like a grim, inescapable phantom. But its tyranny ends today! With this first ever update to Fade Away, we hope to make this second to last level a bit smoother. The aforementioned puzzle has been updated to be a little bit easier for both players, and the hint for the puzzle is much easier to find. We hope this puzzle still provides a challenge but feels a little less oppressive now. We also updated some of the ground throughout this level to make it more visually interesting and to act as a more helpful guide at the start of the level. Enjoy!
