Gosh, we really hope you didn’t buy Dark and Light last week because the title’s price has just been dropped to $17.99. The announcement of the price cut makes it explicit that this is not a sale or a temporary cut but the new permanent price of the title going forward, which Snail Games claims will “better reflect” what players on Steam are looking for. Which is… probably strictly true, insofar as everyone likes paying less for things.
The announcement also claims that the game is moving toward a full release in the near future, although there’s no concurrent announcement about patches or additional content at or following said release. Player reaction seems largely distrustful of the overall trajectory, with a consensus in the comments that this is an attempt to move the game before writing it off altogether. There are promises that players will be less likely to lose gear when the game moves into its full proper release phase, so read into that what you will. Especially in context of the game recently closing down a pile of early access servers.
