Chongqing, China, May 28, 2020 — Developer Pathea Games, the studio behind the award-winning sandbox RPG My Time at Portia, has announced today that they have released a free demo on Steam for its new imaginative puzzle platform adventure title Ever Forward, scheduled for launch this summer on PC. 

In Ever Forward players impersonate Maya; a twelve-year-old girl lost on the edge of dreams and reality. As they unveil the mysteries of her subconscious, the players will unlock her memories step-by-step and progressively face her fears and sorrows. By facing challenging puzzles and exploring breathtaking environments, they will slowly reveal the secrets buried in Maya’s heart. 

The Ever Forward demo will let fans experience nearly 40% of the entire game content, challenging them with eight intricately designed puzzles. At the same time, players will be able to immerse themselves with the game’s dual environments and dive into the main characters (Maya) memories and secrets. 

Check out Ever Forward’s demo trailer below: 

“Our development team spent more than three years designing challenges with the ultimate puzzle adventure fans in mind,” says Bin Yang, Director of Ever Forward. “We can’t wait for players to immerse themselves in our dream world and unlock the mystery surrounding Maya’s past.”

Maya’s journey of self-discovery will see her explore idyllic, pastel-colored fields, charming seaside coasts, and futuristic neon environments where stealth and careful observation are key. Fans will be able to complete puzzles in a variety of different ways thanks to mechanics that include teleportation, gravity manipulation, and more. This world between fiction and reality will open up as players collect memory fragments, unearth new puzzles, and shed light on the dark secrets hidden within Maya’s consciousness.

Ever Forward Key Features


For more than three years, our designers racked their brains, designing puzzles with the "puzzle gamer" in mind. Players will feel deeply challenged and motivated to solve each puzzle, and some puzzles have multiple ways of being completed to fit different kinds of thinkers and logical processes.

The Art

A color pallet of soothing pastels and futuristic tones designed to simulate the absurd nature of the dream world.


Players can collect fragments of memories in the world to unlock new areas and new puzzles.


Mechanics range from simple movement and jump to teleportation and gravity control; the player must use stealth and observational skills to navigate each puzzle.

Ever Forward will launch this summer on Steam for $14.99.  A free demo is available today. The title will arrive on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch in late winter.
