If funded, Bloomylight Studio will release Lynn and the Spirits of Inao on PC and Steam, with aims to eventually release the title on consoles if stretch goals are met. Named platforms include Sony’s PlayStation 4, Nintendo’s Wii U, Microsoft’s XBox One, and Mac computers.

Lynn and the Spirit of Inao Visual 001 - 20160503Lynn and the Spirits of Inao is set on the fictional island of Inao, where apprentice priestess Lynn sets out on a pilgrimage to quell the island’s tormented souls. The studio describes the plot as:

Gods and spirits have always lived in harmony with humans on the island of Inao, but one day, for reasons unknown, spirits began attacking the island’s inhabitants. The High Priestess of the village, with the help of her disciple Lynn, attempted a mysterious ritual in order to send the lost souls back to the other world. However, something went wrong, leaving the Priestess gravely injured and the ceremony incomplete, revealing a far greater danger…

Now entrusted with protecting the village, the young and clumsy Lynn sought to discover the origin of this evil, and in doing so crossed paths with Aku, a demon-like spirit. Through this twist of fate they became unwilling travel companions, leaving the future of Inao and its inhabitants in the hands of an apprentice Priestess and a saucy demon.

The title will draw visual inspiration from the works of Studio Ghibli, and other “Asian Style animation movies.”
