Snow Battle Princess Sayuki Limited Edition Pre-Orders Begin Oct 2nd!

Stuttgart, Germany – September 28th 2022 – Strictly Limited Games, in partnership with Mebius & Starfish-SD are proud to announce that Snow Battle Princess Sayuki will receive an exclusive, limited physical release. This Run and Gun shares the gameplay legacy with its spiritual predecessor Pocky & Rocky and will be available for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. Preorders for the Limited Edition and Special Limited Edition are kicking off on Sunday, October 2nd at 12 AM CET (midnight), only at https://www.strictlylimitedgames.com/.

About the game:

The snow goddess Sayuki is in love with a mortal boy who has fallen under a grave illness. Therefore, you go on a journey to find a remedy for his condition and gain the trust of the villagers, who are wary of the goddesses. If only the forces of evil wouldn’t get in the way.

With your trusty bunny Toto at your side, use different types of snow magic, upgrade them and blast your way through the hordes of yokai and other monsters standing in your way! Battle Princess Sayuki rewards an aggressive playstyle!

Snow Battle Princess Sayuki can also be played with a friend who takes the role of Sayuki’s sister Koyuki. Playing in 2-player couch co-op mode will turn the game into a competition. Who will have the highest score at the end?

Snow Battle Princess Sayuki originally was planned to be a part of the Pocky and Rocky/Kiki Kaikai series. The game changed its appearance due to TAITO being acquired by Square Enix in the fall of 2005.

Instead of scrapping the whole game, developer Starfish took their hard work and transformed the Pocky & Rocky exterior and narrative into Snow Battle Princess Sayuki. Combining the cuteness of Cute ’em Ups and the intense action of isometric fast-paced scrolling shooters, the game turned out to be a true fan-favorite within a small but passionate following and was released for the PS2 and Wii back in 2008.

Features:

  • The spiritual successor of Pocky and Rocky with the familiar gameplay and a combo meter twist!
  • Single and two-player modes
  • Fresh setting using elements from Japanese and Western myths
  • Hand-drawn meets pixel art for a unique style

Caffeine: Victoria’s Legacy Begins Sept 30th on Nintendo Switch!

September 23rd, 2022 – Indie publisher Ratalaika Games, together with Indie developer Kikai Digital, join forces and announce the up and coming release of Caffeine: Victoria’s Legacy, a choice rich, fantasy visual novel, set in a punk cyber victorian alternative reality, where coffee is all that matters!

Out on the 30th September for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Microsoft Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch, priced at €17.99 / $17.99, this is one to check out!

Setting the scene

The backdrop story and focus to Caffeine: Victoria’s Legacy is about Taka, who, while trying to investigate the whereabouts of his mother, is mysteriously sent to a parallel world where caffeine has magical powers and technological advancement is set still at the age of steam. Taka has lost all memories of his past and his only memory is a little coffee house in the corner of an alley, where his parents happily brewed coffee and served customers from all walks of life. Whilst on a plane journey to his mum’s homeland, he mysteriously falls off the plane and finds himself in the city of Victoria, staring at a coffee house named ‘Taka Coffee House’, the same coffee house that he remembered so fondly during his childhood…

Caffeine: Victoria’s Legacy is an exciting visual novel where you have to make choices along the way to uncover the true mystery behind Taka’s history and the workings of this world. Depending on the choices you make throughout the game, you may reach the individual good and bad endings for each of the 4 romanceable characters. After completing their routes, the true ending will unlock which goes on to uncover the secrets behind the whole story. With its unique story full of plot twists and intricate world building, those who stay till the end of the journey will be rewarded handsomely.

When caffeine is consumed, it gives the drinker powers which they call ‘Caffeine’. This makes coffee beans and other caffeinated products like tea a valuable commodity, making the city which Taka ends up in one of the richest in the world. But as the story progresses, it’s also pointed out that with new technological advancements coming up, the appeal of caffeine will diminish and thus there is a danger that those who rely on caffeine powers will become irrelevant.

We won’t spoil things by giving too much detail so delve into this enticing story and see for yourself!

Super Buff HD Heading to Nintendo Switch in 2023!

20 SEPTEMBER, 2022 – Indie publisher Digerati is pumped to share the news of a brand new signing for its 2023 roster – Super Buff HD will launch next year (exact date TBC) for PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Digerati’s partnership with the game’s developer, Buffcorp, was announced with a debut trailer during the highly prestigious Realms Deep showcase over the weekend. The trailer is available to watch below.

A skate-surf-FPS designed with high-mobility and low-expectation in mind, Super Buff HD is the creation of Egypt-based developer, Buffcorp, aka Omar Samir. Lead programmer and self-proclaimed supreme leader on the project, Super Buff HD is Samir’s first ‘mostly solo’ game, having worked previously as a contract dev on what he describes as “dirty deeds done dirt cheap.”

Helping Samir on Super Buff HD are two associates he currently regards as “good friends” – Cayden, who handles all the sounds in the game and occassionally helps out with “some art and level stuff,” and Christian, who Samir describes as “a programming prodigy” and “basically the next John Carmack.”

Asked to provide a few words for this press release about why he wants to make Super Buff HD, the inspirations behind it and so on, Samir promised “I’ll come up with something after a few rounds of Halo.” But he never did.

About the game

Super Buff HD is a fast-paced skate-surf-FPS.

The year is 202020. It’s wild. All the buff dudes have turned on society. STOP THEM.

Dash, bounce, grind, blast, shred, shoot, and soar through a fever dream world of unhinged weirdness. Defeat all the buff dudes. Get a high score. Be a winner. Home for dinner.

Key Features

  • MOBILITY TO MAKE YOU FEEL SUPER POWERED: Levels are playgrounds you can jump, shred, and bounce all over. Grind between rails. Body-surf on enemies. Use water jets, trampolines, poop fountains and pretty much anything to launch yourself heavenwards for huge air.
  • MIGHTY WEAPONS TO KEEP THE BUFF AT BAY: Choose from a modest armory of killy toys, each with dual firing modes and unique functionality. From a trusty hammer that always makes its way back to you no matter how far you throw it, to a revolving potato cannon with backup basketball bombs.
  • A WORLD OF POOP AND PURE IMAGINATION: Your battle against the buff takes place across 20+ levels of strangeness. Levels are variously and hilariously themed, such as mushroom, street, dinosaur-cowboy, sci-fi, mall, and sewage (don’t fall in the brown stuff).
  • HIGH SCORES FOR SELF-GRATIFICATION: Measure the success of your buff-battering performances by racking up ker-azy high scores. Build and keep your multiplier going for even higher scores. Pull on your big boy pants and put some thunder in your number.
  • TOTALLY NUTS, OVER BUFFED BOSSES: Face off against a freakshow of good and pumped boss dudes. Topple a tower block with bulging biceps. Smack down a sword-wielding trashcan titan. Make mincemeat out of a belly-flopping mushroom king.
