Children of the Sun Now Available

A sniper x puzzle game by René Rother, publisher Devolver Digital has released Children of the Sun on Steam.

Described as a tactical third-person puzzle-shooter, Children of the Sun will have players taking control of THE GIRL as they take on THE CULT – and eventually THE LEADER.

As players set off on their mission, they’ll guide a single bullet through increasingly complex and challenging levels. Cultists, traps, and even the environment will come into play, with a scoring system that rewards accuracy and efficiency, encouraging masterful play. Online leaderboards have also been included.

Featuring the song “Holly” by Sleigh Bells, be sure to check out the Children of the Sun launch trailer below:

René Rother had to say the following:

“Hey everyone!

I spent a few years working on this and now it comes to an end. I’m nervous. I’m excited. It feels strange. This is my first game and I’m incredibly grateful for this experience. Being able to make this game with the help of such wonderful people. Personally, just making this game already feels like a huge success.

A big thank you to everyone who supported me!

While this journey is about to end for me, yours is about to start. I really hope you will enjoy this experience! I’m looking forward to see you playing it and I will read all your feedback.

Thank you so much for your time!

P.S. In case you missed it, and you want to know more, here’s my recent interview with Paste Magazine where I talk about what it’s like being a solo dev, and what inspired me to create Children of the Sun.”
