Microids Unveils a Gameplay Video for Blacksad: Under the Skin!

Paris – October 28, 2019 – Microids, Pendulo Studios and YS Interactive are delighted to unveil gameplay footage for Blacksad: Under the Skin. Discover the incredible film-noir mood and the variety of gameplay mechanics in this exciting 25 minute video.

In Blacksad: Under the Skin, questioning suspects and searching for clues is just the beginning! Check-out the full list of game features below.

Game features

Investigation phases and deduction
As the story progresses, players will be able to explore the game areas (with more or less freedom depending on the situation), in order to find clues and question potential witnesses.  Blacksad must analyze the clues gathered to draw conclusions. This deduction system enables players to link up various elements (clues, observations, etc.) in order to come up with theories and open up new leads. If the association work matches up, the detective will come to a conclusion. If the deduction fails, the clues will remain available for a new attempt.

Multiple choice dialogue
Dialogue scenes offer players the chance to move the conversation in different directions. They will need to choose the options they think will be the most useful to their investigation. These choices will decide Blacksad’s development and relationships, as well as future opportunities. Players will have the option to remain silent during certain exchanges, directly affecting his profile, unique to each player.

Cat senses
Being a cat gives Blacksad several significant advantages. His sharp feline senses like his vision, smell and hearing will help analyze certain situations with more depth. By doing so, players will be able to identify previously inaccessible details.

Quick Time Events
QTEs can be related to various actions or action scenes and must be completed in order to progress through the game (all failed attempts will have to be replayed). Players will face two types of QTE: pressing a given button at the right time or filling a bar by repeatedly pressing a button.

The story

The 50s, New York City: Joe Dunn, owner of a boxing club, is found dead. Meanwhile, rising star Bobby Yale, due to take to the ring for the most important fight of his career, has mysteriously disappeared. Sonia Dunn, Joe’s daughter, takes over the gym and must deal with its financial woes. She hires private detective John Blacksad to investigate Yale’s disappearance. The highly anticipated boxing match of the year is drawing closer and the club’s finances would not survive a no show from Bobby Yale. During its investigation, John Blacksad will find himself swimming with sharks in a universe where corruption is everywhere.

Action Platformer EarthNight Drops Dec 3rd on Nintendo Switch!

PHILADELPHIA – Oct. 28, 2019 – EarthNight, the hand-drawn action platformer set during the dragon apocalypse and featured in Nintendo’s Indie World presentation earlier this year, makes the jump to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam for Windows PC and Mac on Dec. 3, 2019.

Cleaversoft‘s console and PC debut casts Stanley and Sydney as humanity’s last hope. Ever since dragons overtook Earth, mankind has lived in exile on space colonies orbiting the planet. Despite being faced with seemingly insurmountable odds, the unlikely duo—a sword-wielding freelance photographer and a young student blessed with ethereal superpowers—take it upon themselves to reclaim their home by skydiving through Earth’s atmosphere and striking back against the monsters below.

The two heroes approach their dragon-slaying mission with drastically different tactics. Stanley’s powerful legs allow him to make both high jumps and long leaps, while Sydney favors agility by making use of an air dash and double jump ability. Both heroes wield their bespoke skills to overcome hostile environments and push towards the vulnerable heads of their scaled serpentine foes.

Each EarthNight level features procedurally-generated dragons with multiple exits and secrets rewarding exploration. Slaying dragons grants Sydney and Stanley rewards like dragon eggs and other mysterious objects that unlock powerful upgrades. With the right tools, the duo can topple even the toughest opponents while moving through stages at breakneck speeds.

Boasting more than 10,000-plus frames of painstakingly-crafted animation, EarthNight’s hand-drawn visuals come from Paul “Mathattan” Davey. Paul “Chipocrite” Weinstein composed the title’s rocking soundtrack, infusing chiptunes created on Gameboy Hardware with real modern instrumentation. The OST is now available on Bandcamp, Apple Music, and Spotify.

“EarthNight represents seven years of hard work from a collective of talented artists and the final product is something we’re immensely proud to share with everyone,” said Rich Siegel, founder of Cleaversoft. “We hope that Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam players are as excited to hurtle back to Earth and slay dragons as we are to watch them.”

EarthNight launches on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam for Windows PC and Mac on Dec. 3, 2019 for $14.99 / €13.99 / £12.59 / $21.00 AUD. The game is currently available via the Apple Arcade subscription service for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac.
