Independent developer Pathea Games, the studio behind the award-winning sandbox RPG My Time at Portia, has announced today that its imaginative puzzle platform adventure game, Ever Forward, is out now on PC via Steam for $14.99. The title, which has players unlock the mysteries hidden within a twelve-year-old girl’s subconscious, will be discounted 10% during its debut week.
Those who purchase the game during its first week on Steam will be given the title’s OST, two bonus puzzles no additional charge. The OST will be sold separately for $11.99 after this period, and the bonus puzzles will not be available for purchase soon after this time. Curious fans can try the game for free via a demo.

“Our team has paid careful attention to all the feedback we’ve received since we’ve launched Ever Forward’s demo,” says Bin Yang, Director of Ever Forward. “We added more challenges, improved our tutorial, and optimized the title’s sound quality to make sure that fans are completely immersed in Maya’s vivid universe. We can’t wait to witness people solve our puzzles and share their experiences with one another.”
As Maya, players in Ever Forward will cross two vastly different realities: one filled with idyllic, pastel-colored fields and charming coastal retreats, the other home to all manner of formidable geometric traps and riddles. The secrets stored deep within Maya’s heart will gradually be revealed as fans collect memory fragments, unearth new puzzles, and conquer the girl’s fears.
