I am truly grateful to the Android community for helping my unknown game grow. Thank you for all of your support and encouragement. I am a solo indie developer working on BrightRidge and it is a game from my heart. I enjoyed creating this world and I hope you enjoy exploring it:)

EXPLORE AND STORY MODES
Ready for adventure? The Ballad of BrightRidge and Love & Tin are two magical adventures in Story Mode. Or choose Explore mode and experience BrightRidge without quests or enemies. Can you find the ancient whale that swims the oceans? Or the hidden ruins that dot the land?

SHAPE CHANGE POWERS
Unlock the power to change into several species and explore BrightRidge from a new perspective. Soar through the sky as a golden eagle or a winged dragon. Run through the forests and a wily fox or dashing deer. Barge through the land as a towering Tree Ent and flutter peacefully among the flowers as a delicate butterfly (a fan favourite!).

PHOTO MODE
Become a nature photographer and take and save beautiful pictures of this gorgeous and vast landscape. Will you photograph an elusive deer drinking by the river? Or perhaps capture a golden sunset amid ancient ruins? Need help hunting the animals down? Use your Spirit View to magically track animals, each with their own habitat and behavior.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR WORLD
Extensive options let you customize almost anything at anytime. Change time of day, turn on Watercolor mode and experience a living painting, add effects and filters and more. On newer devices you can turn up the detail for an even more beautiful and immersive experience.

LEGENDS AND LORE
Legend Spots dot the land waiting to be discovered. Each one tells a bit about the people, places and history of BrightRidge. Or visit the cozy halls of BrightRidge Inn, sit by the fireplace, dance with the guests, or listen to their stories.

DYNAMIC WEATHER AND DAY/NIGHT CYCLE
It’s all here. Rainstorms, lightning and thunder, light breezes and gusting wind, and quiet snowfalls. Or use the options to change the weather on the fly.

RELAX AND EXPLORE
There’s no rush. Feeling panic, anxiety or stress? Choose Explore Mode, breathe, and explore the wild rivers, valleys and waterfalls of BrightRidge at your own pace.

...AND A PERSONAL THANK YOU
A big thank you to Nullzone, Liam, Curtis, DK_1287 and Jack for helping me test and supporting BrightRidge. A project of this size is a challenge to create on my own, and your support and encouragement have helped me through difficult times.

NOTE: If you experience blue graphics issues, this can often be fixed in the game by choosing OPTIONS > PLAYGROUND > RESOLUTION > FORWARD RENDER. You can also change things like resolution, quality, and more in the Options screens.

If the game closes after the logo, this can usually be fixed by restarting your device.
