Towers extending up to the sky, made of alabaster, with gold filigree. Beautiful statues of gods and angels and heroes and kings. A people who found their deeds on a philosophy of hope. A civilization at the summit of its majesty.
All of it long gone.
The Cold Ruins are all that’s left. Broken towers. Shattered statues. Creeping undead vines grown over beautiful edifices. And the people… ruined. Lastlife is populated only with the undead, husks of what came before clinging to a horrible half-life. Their memories lost and gone. Their past glory, vanished.
In The Cold Ruins of Lastlife, you’ll play an undead remnant of a once-great world. Find your lost memories as you sift through the ashes, or pave a new path, cutting a swath of burning light into a hopeful future, and leave the past—and your memories—behind forever. The Cold Ruins of Lastlife lets you play undead adventurers trying to find something to fight for—the past or the future—in this cold and dreadful world. Hunt for a new flame. Or try to recall why your flame burned bright in the first place. The Cold Ruins of Lastlife is heavily inspired by Dark Souls, along with works such as Mervyn Peake’s Gormenghast series and Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities.
