Get Lit with Gameplay Trailer of The Alliance Alive HD Remastered!

To unite the realms and return the sky from eternal darkness, you’ve got to harness everything you’ve got! In The Alliance Alive HD Remastered, skills and bonds are challenged when overthrowing the Daemons.

Our latest Gameplay Trailer highlights components for success in battle and the greater journey that lies ahead. Below are three critical features in battle:

Awakening – Learn skills at random, though the chances to do so are increased by engaging stronger enemies or using stronger weapons. Additionally, unlocking specific Talents allows one to “awaken” with greater odds.

Ignition – When a character enters this state (from dealing or taking damage), they can utilize their weapon’s Final Strike. Entering further states of Ignition opens up more advantages in battle.

Final Strike – A gambit that gives access to a powerful attack in exchange for breaking the currently equipped weapon.

EarthNight Takes the Dragon Apocalypse to Nintendo Switch in 2019!

PHILADELPHIA – Aug. 19, 2019 – EarthNight, the hand-drawn action platformer set during the dragon apocalypse, leaps and dashes its way to Nintendo Switch in 2019, Nintendo revealed today as part of its Indie World presentation. Developer Cleaversoft also plans to release the title later this year for PlayStation 4 and Windows PC & Mac on Steam.

Dragons have taken over the Earth. Mankind now lives in exile, clinging to life in space colonies orbiting around the planet. Two heroes, the demon-possessed teen Sydney and sword-wielding Stanley, represent humanity’s last hope. Fighting to return to the place they once called home, the duo skydives through the monster-infested atmosphere to eliminate as many of the beasts as possible on the way back down to the planet below.

Racing along the serpentine dragons’ backs, Sydney and Stanley can harness their momentum to elude or dispatch the colorful swarms of enemies looking to trip them up along the way. Each character comes with distinct playstyles, offering sharp double jumps or lone gliding leaps and attacks, that can be manipulated precisely with minimalist but nuanced controls.

Those who master traversing these obstacle courses can vault higher into the sky, chaining jumps into the air where power-ups and other treasures await. At the end of a run, players will want to bring these collectibles back to the Appraiser, who exchanges them for persistent upgrades that can be used in the battles to come.

Even with new weapons and equipment, Sydney and Stanley need to remain on their toes. Each dragon is different from the last, fusing hand-crafted design with procedural elements to shape intricate encounters with near-infinite possibilities. Every moment is intense and layered with intricacy, inviting dragon slayers to come back for one more run in search of larger combo strings, higher scores, new items, secrets, warp zones, and more until they finally liberate Earth.

“EarthNight was inspired by many of the platformers we grew up with in the ‘80s and early ‘90s, so it’s a dream come true to be putting our game on a Nintendo system,” said Rich Siegel, founder, Cleaversoft. “We can’t to wait show off everything we’ve learned from the classics and how we’re pushing the genre forward when EarthNight launches later this year.”

EarthNight is driven by an original soundtrack composed by chiptune musician Paul “Chipocrite” Weinstein and pairs its tunes with surreal, painterly visuals from artist Paul “Mattahan” Davey, who meticulously illustrated the game’s more than 10,000 frames of animation by hand.

New Sparklite Gameplay Trailer Premiered!

Manchester, UK, Aug. 19, 2019 — During Gamescom 2019, Nintendo shined a bright light on the best indie titles coming to the Switch with the Indie World livestream. Sparklite was one such bright star and the new trailer gave gamers a glimpse of what to expect in this charming adventure. For those hoping to learn more, we’ve got a deep dive into the weapons and gadgets that you’ll use when exploring and a dev diary focused on Ada, the hero of Sparklite.

Across Sparklite’s five diverse procedurally generated biomes, an abundance of mystery and challenges lie in wait and it’s dangerous to explore unprepared. With Sparkmaster Rizzle’s trusty Workshop of Wonders open in town, our hero Ada is always only a stone’s throw away from upgrading her arsenal for the enemies and puzzles that lie ahead.

From either harnessing the power of the Boom Balloon which allows Ada to quickly dispatch enemies with remote control precision, to the quick firing bursts of energy from the Spark Slinger, there’s always a weapon on hand to deal with any given situation. With Sparklite upping the ante with several challenging boss battles such as the Lumbering Titan, Timbert and his treacherous gremlins, Ada’s Rocket Boots provide her with short, concentrated bursts of speed to both avoid foes and jump over large gaps to catch that hard to reach chest of loot! Or take it up another level with the powerful Spark Blitzer which harnesses Sparklite to discharge an intense spike of energy with devastating precision!

As well as Ada’s array of high-powered weaponry, she also has a wealth of gadgets at her disposal. From her companion, Wingnut’s enhancing Flare Bang, to Ada’s own handy Multi-Tool WrenchSparklite has enough tools in its box for any budding explorer come release day! These are but a handful of the weapons and tools Ada will utilize when taking on the perilous foes Professor Corwin touched on in detail in last month’s Bestiary of Brutal Baddies.

Whilst you catch up on how you’ll be filling up your armoury in Sparklite, drop by and add the game to your Steam Wishlist where Merge Games is running a Steam wishlist promotion for exclusive content ahead of launch, including a chance to play the game early! We’re energized by our community’s excitement for the game and want to reward the fans as we get closer to the October release.

Sparklite is an action-adventure set in a whimsical and ever-changing land. Battle foes in top-down action using an arsenal of gadgets, guns, and gear. Explore dangerous corners of the procedurally generated world, take down titans of the mining industry, and harness the power of Sparklite!

Full gyro controls make the game incredibly more immersive – you really feel like an action hero, you use your whole body to dodge hails of slow motion bullets. It’s a feeling we worked hard to evoke on PC and other consoles but SUPERHOT on Switch just takes it to an entirely new level.” – Tom Kaczmarczyk, Cofounder

An intense arcade-style arena shooter with a classic 90s FPS aesthetic, Demon Pit tests your reflexes against endless waves of the demon horde in a constantly changing arena. Your goal is a high score on the leaderboard, the price is your soul. Far from God’s light, there is only Hell.

A collaboration between DoomCube and Psychic Software, two developers based in Galway, Republic of Ireland, and with music by composer Thomas O’Boyle, Demon Pit is a throwback to the FPS classics of the 1990s. It combines retro-authentic low poly 3D graphics, with uncompromisingly hardcore skill-based gameplay.

About the game

Inspired by the fast-paced FPS games of the 1990s, Demon Pit is an intense arcade-style arena shooter. Armed with a series of ranged weapons and a soul grapple, you must fight and out maneuver endless waves of demons in a constantly changing environment. How long can you survive before they rip your flesh and claim your soul?

Key features

  • Battle 10 types of hideous hell spawn
  • Repel the demon horde with 7 varied weapons
  • Use your soul grapple to traverse the arena quickly and avoid the oncoming legion
  • Master movement to survive the changing environment and its hazards

Sports Fighter KungFu Kickball Scores 2020 Nintendo Switch Release!

SYDNEY – Aug. 14, 2019 – KungFu Kickball, the team-based sports platform fighter from developer WhaleFood Games and publisher Blowfish Studios, strikes Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam for Windows PC and Mac in Q1 2020.

Square off against friends in a fantasy sport that infuses the action of soccer with martial arts. Unleash a whirlwind of kicks, punches, and magical abilities to take out the opposing team and boot the ball downfield. Score points by overpowering or outmaneuvering rival defenders and send the ball crashing into one of the gigantic bells at either end of the stadium.

KungFu Kickball makes use of minimalistic controls to create an accessible yet competitive experience. Matches are fast-paced tug-of-war-style showdowns where players switch between offensive strikes and defensive stands at the drop of a hat — or the ring of a bell. And with six stages and three player classes to choose between, every match takes on its own character.

Featuring local and online 1v1 and 2v2 multiplayer, KungFu Kickball allows for rivalries to form on the couch or over the Internet. Challenge friends, foes, and strangers alike to see which side can pull off the best maneuvers and ultimately determine who is the KungFu Kickball master.

“KungFu Kickball is a new kind of sports game that injects the high-flying action of martial arts,” said Ben Lee, co-founder, Blowfish Studios. “As fans of both sport and kung fu action, we’re having a lot of fun with this project and look forward to sharing it with everyone early next year.”

KungFu Kickball will feature support for English, Italian, French, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and Simplified Chinese language options. Blowfish Studios will showcase KungFu Kickball at PAX West 2019 in Seattle from Aug. 30 through Sept. 2.

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends Bursts Onto Nintendo Switch This November!

Stuttgart, Germany – August 14, 2019 – After more than 10 years, Nintendo Switch players can look forward to a sequel of the cult 80’s game series Bubble Bobble by TAITO. The new Bubble Bobble 4 Friends was developed by the original studio TAITO Corporation and will include a brand new local 4-player mode. The sequel will be released both digitally and physically exclusively for Nintendo Switch in Europe on November 19, 2019, with the release in the USA to follow in the first quarter of 2020.

As in the previous highly popular series, the thrilling and epic bubble fight starts again!

One night, a child’s room became enfolded by a miraculous light and every object under its rays suddenly came to life – including the child’s most favourite toy, the little dragon called Bub. Full of jealousy, the wicked magician Baron von Blubba challenges the friendly dragon to battle.

In the ’80s and ’90s, the players jumped through the levels either solo or in the two-player mode. In the new part of the popular Bubble Bobble series, a 4-player cooperative mode is integrated, providing even more fun with friends.

“Bubble Bobble is an extremely popular title in Europe, so we decided to implement a pre-sale in Europe in conjunction with ININ Games and Strictly Limited Games. It is also the first internally developed title since Taito has re-entered the consumer market, and the development team is thrilled to be working on this famous IP. I deeply hope that many people will enjoy it” says Hiroshi Uemura, Executive Officer, Division Manager of Development, TAITO CORPORATION.

Collectors can look forward to the Collector’s Edition of Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, distributed exclusively by Strictly Limited Games. The ININ publishing label markets the retail versions and digital releases on the Nintendo eShop.
