‘Bullet-hell fusion’ shoot-em up Grand Brix Shooter Arrives on Nintendo Switch!

SEOUL, South Korea  August 29, 2019 – Grand Brix Shooter, a hyper arcade shootem up from developer and publisher Intragames, is out now for Nintendo Switch and PC Steam global.

Grand Brix Shooter, is a side-scroll bullet-hell fusion shooter that adds various elements for beginners to hard core players. Here is the introduction of the key system for the players of Grand Brix Shooter.

The Key of Fusion Technology, The Brix Core

The Brix Core, said to be controlled only by Prince Brix, is the nucleus of all the aircraft. This is the rhombus-shaped object that shines in the center of the device, and if it is hit, its durability is reduced. All the aircraft have a maximum health gauge of three spaces, and they will be destroyed when the gauge runs out. The only way to recover is by fusing with a new airframe.

The Fusion with Fuselage, The Fusion System

In most shooting games, the aircraft is either fixed or to be chosen to play at start. There is a basic type of brix core in Grand Brix Shooter, and the player will encounter with random aircraft airframe processing the game. The player can use the fusion system to get on a new aircraft. There are various types of fuselage that comes in random after shooting down a specific enemy.

The player can decide to replace the aircraft but once it gets changed, the aircraft level is reset so a careful judgement is required. Since each aircraft has different characteristics and comes in random, it is also important to determine the timing of replacement. In particular, when there is only one health gauge left with a high-performance three-level aircraft, you will have to choose either to replace it with a new one to get maximum health gauge or to just believe in your control and continue playing.

Nucleus Enhancement with a crystal and its Awakening

By shooting down the red enemy fighters, they will drop the crystals and by collecting certain amount of them, the level of the aircraft get upgraded by enhancing its performance. The maximum level of each aircraft is limited to three. The crystals fill the experience gauge and helps the player to be in awakening state where the aircrafts performance will be greatly enhanced over time. If the player grasp the time of the appearance of a strong enemy, using the awakening skill is recommended in a timely manner to play it more easily.

Aim for ranking the first place of leader board

After when the game is over, the scores are recorded on the leaderboard. There are separate leaderboards for Arcade and Challenge Mode. The records on the leaderboard will give the feelings of the greatest accomplishment for players.

The core systems described above are pretty important to play the game, so it would be helpful for the players to be acknowledged in advance before getting into the game.

It is NOT THE END until IT IS OVER

Challenge Mode is a unique mode of Grand Brix Shooter that infinitely push the player until their aircraft is destroyed. Be aware of the score ratio system and achieve top rankings on the leaderboard.

Share HP on the local co-op on the Challenge Mode

Grand Brix Shooter supports co-op mode up to 2 players. Co-op play of shootem up can be good a benefit but also be poison. The 2 players on the local co-op on the Challenge Mode share their HP. This means that if one of the player is damaged, the shared HP will be reduced. On the other hand, the HP will be restored once the player fuses with a new airframe, and this could create an opportunity to escape the crisis momentarily.

The game features English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese language options. On Steam, the game also supports Chinese (both Simplified and Traditional), Japanese, and Korean language support.

Grand Brix Shooter is released digitally on August 29 2019, for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation PC (Steam) for $9.99 NA / 9.99 EU / £8.99 UK.

News editor sim Headliner: NoviNews makes the rounds September 5th on Nintendo Switch!

Seattle, Washington – August 28th, 2019 – This just in: Unbound Creations is bringing its unapologetically politically charged potboiler and news editor sim Headliner: NoviNews to Nintendo Switch on September 5th. Pre-orders are available on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $13.99. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will follow in December through publisher Chorus Worldwide.

Cast in the role of a “Headliner”, you operate as the chief editor of the country’s largest news publication. Acting as the voice of the publication, you must decide what stories to run, meet your quotas, keep your audience engaged, and make enough money to keep food in the dog bowl. Controversy equals clicks, and with the world in conflict, it’s up to you to cultivate the country’s culture through the court of public opinion.

Beyond making executive decisions behind your desk, Headliner: NoviNews also lets you walk the streets as your custom made avatar observes how the stories you ran influenced the public. Which politicians will they support? Will a riot break out? How will you report on said riot? With geopolitical tensions at an all-time high, it’s never an easy decision being the Headliner!

“I’ve been a big fan of the Nintendo Switch since its inception, and felt like there was untapped potential for it to house serious political games,” said Unbound Creations founder and director Jakub Kasztalski. “I’ve always been interested in how media shapes people’s perceptions, which in turn shapes reality. What stories we deem newsworthy, and how we report on those stories, fundamentally changes our entire society. Headliner: NoviNews explores the trials and tribulations of trying to remain unbiased in an inherently biased world.”

Headliner: NoviNews recently won the “Best Overall Game” of Intel Buzz Seattle, 2018, was a finalist for Best Action & Adventure Game at the 2018 TIGA Awards, and it was part of the Official Selection at PAX West 2018’s Indie Megabooth and the same year’s Seattle Indies Expo.
