Zorya: The Celestial Sisters is an award-winning cooperative puzzle game that takes place in a desolate world where the sun never sets. Players will embark on a puzzle-filled adventure where they must prove that they can communicate and collaborate. Players can choose to play as one of two sisters: Aysu, the night goddess who must stay within the shadows and can summon Wind Power, or Solveig, the all-powerful sun goddess who controls time and can harness Solar Energy. To succeed in the game, players must help reunite the sisters by safely navigating the shadows to solve increasingly complex puzzles and restore balance to the world.

One unique aspect of the game is that it capitalizes on the trend of "Cross-Play," where players can play against one another on the platform they choose. Players in Zorya: The Celestial Sisters depend on each other to progress through the storyline. This collaborative experience creates a unique publishing opportunity and TLM Partners embraces the challenge to allow play across available platforms.

Gameplay Features

  • Players can connect across available platforms in Online Co-Op or side by side in Split Screen Co-Op.
  • Communication and Collaboration are key to solving the increasingly complex puzzles in Zorya: The Celestial Sisters
    • Experience a celestial perspective as Solveig, use her powers to shift the time of the day by moving the sun across the sky to alter the shadows on the ground, and harness Solar Energy to vanquish enemies and activate puzzle elements.
    • As Aysu, safely navigate the shadows cast by Solveig and summon Wind Power to interact with the world and its inhabitants.
  • An immersive experience exploring the magical world of Vyraj, with its beautiful and whimsical scenery, along with a deep and soothing atmospheric music.
  • Discover the rich history of the world and its previous inhabitants, that is, if the player is attentive enough to find the ancient lore hidden and scattered throughout the levels.

Jacob Hawley, CEO of TLM Partners states of the publication: "Our focus is on bringing gamers together through innovative Cross-Play experiences and to deliver innovative content as an independent publisher of games in the middle market [primarily PC and console]."

The publishing of Zorya: The Celestial Sisters begins TLM's focus on publishing and kickstarts the strategy of working with indie game developers to deliver innovative, cross-play enabled experiences to market.

Jacob Hawley also shares more detail regarding the game discovery. "One of our designers was a part of the team that won the grand prize at ESAC Student Video Game Competition and Ubisoft Montreal's Game Lab Competition for Best Prototype, Best Creativity and Integration of the Theme, and Audience award in 2017."

He elaborates: "The MadLife team has been working on the PC title in their spare time ever since. We loved the concept and style. By TLM adding our cross-platform technology and building out the Console versions, we were able to align on a common vision for Zorya to fit with our publishing goals and mission to invest in the next generation of video game developers."
