Eyes Beyond the Torchlight is a new fantasy RPG from Workhorse RPG Studio.
The game was released via DriveThruRPG in October and received an update this week. I’ve not yet had a chance to get it out as fantasy RPGs are released several times a week.
But, Eyes Beyond the Torchlight is already different from other fantasy RPGs released in recent weeks. You can buy it in paperback or hardback from Amazon, for example.

If it feels early for Eyes Beyond the Torchlight to have a third-party license, you might be surprised to know it was an early request from buyers in the DriveThruRPG comment section.
