Reunite your family in a world shattered by dark wars
A conflict between light and shadow
Pentaquin: Deeds Of Twilight is an action-packed 2D platformer that combines carefully hand-drawn graphics with an epic soundtrack and a deep storyline.
The world is falling to pieces
The world of Pentaquin is changing: The Creator God has split his mind into five aspects, sealing the main source of energy of all magic and technologies based on it. Nothing is working the way it used to. In the shadows of the twilight new and to some extent fanatical magic circles form and dangerous civil wars start to burgeon.

A musical outlook on the gaming experience
An atmospheric background music that matches the spirit of the game is crucial to us. That’s why we’re very proud of our Pentaquin soundtrack which emphasizes the gameplay and storyline using orchestral and atmospheric soundscapes giving the 2D platformer a thrilling touch. It’s more than worth listening to: Our piece ” Traces Of The Past” has already been released on the ‘Game On NRW – The Sounds’ compilation Vol. 2 thus appearing on vinyl!
In ‘Pentaquin: Deeds Of Twilight’ you control the protagonist through the course of three acts, each of which contains five levels. At the end of each act, you’ll be put to the test by a challenging boss. The total of 15 bosses vary in their fighting style and require you to get creative and adapt your tactics from fight to fight.
Travel to the different locations in the Pentaquin Universe using an interactive world map. Individual levels within the area can be selected and played in any order and frequency. Within the unique acts, you will make your way utilizing different customizable skills.
Insights into the game
Take a look into the game world of Pentaquin! The following screenshots correspond to the status of our current demo version, which we exhibited at gamescom 2022 and show one of the first levels: An enchanted forest full of vicious nature elementals and dogged bandits.
The Game World & Story
Since the split, when the spirit of the Creator God was divided into five individuals, humanity has faced a great challenge. The Arcana magic is fading – and the technology powered by it is gradually failing. The Ter’ozar people fall into a bloody civil war. Followers of the newborn aspect gods carry their personal views and goals all over the world. Many people are simply trying to survive in these hard times.
In Pentaquin: Deeds Of Twilight you slip into the role of the son of a convinced magician from the circle of light. The Light Circle has set itself the goal of freeing people from everything that could oppress them in any way. Your sister wants to continue her father’s work after his death and free people at all costs – whether it is in their interest or not. She sets out and tries to purify the world by force of arms. In order to protect his family from the impending disaster of losing another member, the brother sets off. He follows the trail of chaos left behind by his sister.
Five learnable skills
Master your magic
In the fractured crumbling world of Pentaquin there is only one way to survive: using your skills deftly. The Arcana magic is fading – you have to adapt and learn new spells to survive against all evils.
Protect yourself from enemies or climb high areas
Build bridges, create new paths through low caves
Save yourself from damage from enemy attacks or traps
Distract your opponents by creating a doppelganger
Escape from crushing battles in a flash or move faster
A dangerous structure
Five self-sufficient aspects have formed within the consciousness of the Creator God, each pursuing different goals for the world order. In doing so, they tear at the sanity of the Creator God. To protect the world from his impending madness he split up his soul into five new gods.
Now his aspects no longer threaten his mind but world balance instead. The new divine beings are trying to gain supporters. Cultists form magic circles and terrorize non-believers or those of other faiths. To make matters worse, once controllable elementals become feral and become constant danger to the people.
Your journey through a shattered world
On your journey, you will get to know different areas of the Pentaquin Universe – a mystical world put to the test by the consequences of the creator god dividing his soul. The planet Pentaquin, orbited by five moons, holds plenty of secrets and dangerous enemies. Travel to ruined regions and fallen cities like the former metropolis of Terovania and embark on a journey following the footsteps of your missing sister through a path of devastation to at least restore peace within your own family in a world sinking into war.
Face the dangers awaiting you in the rugged world of Pentaquin. Ruthless bandits, mad forest elementals and fanatical followers of the mage circles are just a few of the numerous enemies you’ll have to confront. From giant hornets to the dragons guarding the mana stream of the world, to the former guardians of creation – powerful, four-armed and five-headed “Tero’zar” – you will continually encounter new challenges in the 2D platformer Pentaquin: Deeds Of Twilight .
At the end of each act exciting and challenging boss fights await you, putting your skills to the test.
