Godstrike Unleashes Boss Rush Bullet Hell Today on Nintendo Switch!

MADRID – April 15, 2021 – Godstrike, the boss rush bullet-hell shooter where time is everything from publisher Freedom Games and developer OverPowered Team, is now available on Nintendo Switch and Steam for Windows PC.

In a realm where remnants of a fallen divine power spend eternity fighting amongst one another, hope for the future is a thing of the past. Until the forgotten splinter of divinity, Talaal, emerges from obscurity with its Herald Yissia to stand against Talaal’s siblings and their eternal war.

Harness Talaal’s unfathomable powers and duel against twisted creatures and strange beings in multi-staged boss battles. Move quickly and strike true as the Herald Yissia, weaving through incoming enemy fire while blasting back and unleashing god-granted powers to alter the flow of each battle. Make every second of each battle count — because in Godstrike, time functions as Yissia’s health bar and currency.

With each hit taken, Yissia and Talaal lose health and valuable seconds off the clock, making trading blows a dangerous proposition. And to complicate matters, each skill used drains the clock and the duo’s health, adding additional depth to each battle’s ballet of bullets. Outfit the Herald with an ever-expanding roster of skills and abilities in the form of blessings and occult boons that expand their powers at a cost.

Overcome Talaal’s trials in the Campaign Mode, where new skill unlocks are earned by defeating other Heralds. Combine skills and abilities to create surprising synergies that turn Yissia into a whirling force of destruction. Fire off True Shot, a curving homing attack with the bullet-clearing Astral Shield to strike foes without consequence. Experiment with the Herald’s myriad abilities to defeat Talaal’s wicked siblings.

Master Heraldic powers in Arcade Mode where every ability is already unlocked or attempt to overcome the ultimate ordeal in a Challenge Mode with randomized boss orders and strange new blessings earned from each fight. Outplay the Godstrike community by taking on Daily Challenge runs with wickedly randomized modifiers or broadcast your journey to slay the Heralds on Twitch, with full-featured chat integration that allows viewers to impact the action by voting on status effects and more.

“Like Talaal and Yissia, we’ve been watching the clock with each passing day,” said Pablo Monroy, Art Director, OverPowered Team. “We are thrilled to bring Godstrike to Nintendo Switch and Steam today!”

Godstrike is now available on Nintendo Switch and Windows PC for $14.99 with an additional 20% launch discount on both platforms. The game includes full gamepad functionality as well as support for English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Korean, and Japanese language options.

Aztech Forgotten Gods Coming to Nintendo Switch in 2021!

Chihuahua, Mexico — April 14, 2021 — Aztech Forgotten Gods, the Latinx-Futurism cyberstone colossus fighter from award-winning Mulaka developers Lienzo, debuted today at Nintendo’s latest Indie World. Aztech Forgotten Gods will launch on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One + Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 + 5, and PC later this year.

In Aztech’s alternate history, European powers never arrived on the shores of ancient Mesoamerica. The Aztec Empire’s capital Tenochtitlan has thrived for centuries as a stone metropolis, technologically advanced yet heavily rooted in the ways of those indigenous to the land. Yet the gods of their past, like the feathered serpent deity Quetzalcoatl or Mictlantechutli, Lord of the Underworld, faded into distant memories. Until now.

Soon-to-be heroine Achtli joins her archeologist mother Nantsin on an unsanctioned dig. While searching for ancient knowledge that could help all of society, they inadvertently cause an explosion and awaken stone colossi hellbent on destroying the city. Achtli crawls out of the rubble to discover two new things: her prosthetic arm’s been replaced with a stone artifact, and there’s someone in her head named Tez claiming his own divinity.

Join the unlikely duo on their quest to crush colossi and discover why the gods disappeared so long ago. Battle massive bosses while wielding Achtli’s new gauntlet as a makeshift jetpack and devastating weapon all in one. Soar through the sky, run on walls, grind on rails, and bring the pantheon to their knees with stone-crushing strikes. Upgrade the gauntlet with Nantsin’s help to earn new abilities from plasma-based projectiles to energy shields.

Explore Tenochtitlan with Achtli’s incredible newfound agility and strength. Encounter optional side stories, unlock new outfits, and upgrade passive abilities by completing secondary challenges in the hub-world. Become the city’s savior with an adrenaline-fueled soundtrack that fuses metal with traditional Aztec instruments. Aztech Forgotten Gods’ emotional journey took inspiration from anime and superhero comics and has a vibrant, Saturday morning cartoon aesthetic to match.

“Lienzo’s proud to be fleshing out a Mexican story with a Mexican team,” said Guillermo Vizcaino, Head of PR and Marketing and Lead Writer. “There’s such a rich history behind the Aztecs, and merging that with an anime-inspired story gave us the chance to make something really special.”

Aztech Forgotten Gods will be available in English and Spanish on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One + Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 + 5, and PC in 2021.
