Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption Slashes Today onto Nintendo Switch!

HONG KONG – Oct. 18, 2018 – Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption, the boss battler from publisher Another Indie and the senior AAA veterans at developer Dark Star Game Studios, is available for purchase now on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in addition to the recently launched Discord store. Sinner is also available via Xbox Game Pass starting today, and PlayStation 4 fans can redeem themselves at a 10% discount for a limited time.

Join Adam on a journey through a macabre world set to a cinematic and haunting soundtrack to confront his sins in the form of monstrous entities from his past. Each of these bosses holds a powerful grudge and redemption comes at the cost of Adam’s strength, health and weapons as he must sacrifice some of his vitality or equipment in order to enter each boss’ arena.

Besting the specters of his former life requires as much strategy as it does skill, and mastering the game is no easy feat. The bosses can be confronted in any order, but with each fight the challenge grows and only the most adept will vanquish the manifestations of the seven deadly sins and open the way to the final boss.

A New Game+ mode adds replayability through unlockable equipment and a variety of game modes. Take on foes with only no weapon, dealing less damage and giving up the ability to parry, or wail on them with twin hammers to see all the endings more quickly. Up the ante in Nightmare Mode, a boss rush featuring all the monstrosities in rapid succession for the ultimate test of skill.

“Our aim with Sinner was to provide a blend of difficulty and fairness that will satisfy hardcore gamers whether they have time to play for long sessions or only in smaller chunks,” says Iain Garner, director of developer relations, Another Indie. “The gameplay additions in New Game+ give the game vast replayability through greater choices so people can customize the challenge to be exactly as hard as they want.”

Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is now available for $18.99 in English, Spanish, German, French, Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Russian via Discord.

Winter is Coming in Norse Action-Adventure Fimbul on Switch in Early 2019!

MUNICH/COPENHAGEN – 18 October 2018 – Fimbul, the Norse Comic-Action-Adventure from Publisher EuroVideo and developer Zaxis Games, releases on PlayStation 4 and PC November 29, with a Switch release planned for early 2019.

The Fimbulwinter – a season shrouded in legend, said to be the harbinger of the coming Ragnarök – has engulfed the high north. An old berserker named Kveldulver dies during an assault on his village, but destiny isn’t finished with him. Revived by the Norns, the sisters of fate, Kveldulver is chosen by the gods to fight the Jotun, a race of trolls, to prevent Ragnarök and the destruction of the world.

Fimbul’s comic book style provides a gorgeous backdrop for players as they forge their own story. The “Lifestring” feature empowers Kveldulver, allowing him to return to earlier points in the story and walk different fated paths. During his adventure, he’ll meet many characters, some of whom are like-minded and willing to support him on his journey. Hidden areas, encounters, and stories provide multiple incentives to see all possible outcomes.

Fimbul’s combat is simple to learn but hard to master. To prevail against enemy vikings, wolfs, monsters, and the giant Jotun, the protagonist has to collect special skills, items, and a variety of weapons.
