SYDNEY – Nov. 25, 2019 – Nine Witches: Family Disruption, the comedic alternate-history occult adventure game from Blowfish Studios and Indiesruption, summons supernatural hijinks to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam for Windows PC in Q2 2020.

Something strange is happening in Sundäe, a rustic village on the northwest coast of Norway. As the fires of World War II rage on, members of the Third Reich’s Okkulte-SS division have descended on the hamlet, harnessing a mystical power to strike a terrible blow against Allied forces. Under direct orders from the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister, Professor Alexei Krakovitz, a quadriplegic Russian expatriate renowned for his research into the occult sciences, and Akiro Kagasawa, the professor’s capable assistant, arrive in Scandinavia to investigate reports of witchcraft and put an end to the Nazi’s hellish machinations.

Explore the community of Sundäe and cross paths with more than 70 quirky and eccentric characters as the duo seek answers to supernatural enigmas. Collect clues and unravel a mystery as these unlikely heroes. Cross from the world of living to the realm of the dead as Professor Krakovitz, whose ability to traverse the Astral Plane allows him to pass through corporeal barriers and possess weak-minded individuals without leaving the confines of his wheelchair. Commune with ghosts to learn about the region’s haunting history as Krakovitz or switch to Kagasawa when situations need a physical touch, like ferrying items to solve puzzles or taking the fight to the Germans and otherworldly entities in side-scrolling action combat.

Soak in Sundäe’s scenery, brought to life with beautiful, retro-inspired pixel art and a comical story dripping with gleefully absurd, dark humor. Prepare for the unexpected as the heroic pair encounters one bizarre situation after the next on their crusade to stop the Third Reich.

Sports Fighter KungFu Kickball Scores 2020 Nintendo Switch Release!

SYDNEY – Aug. 14, 2019 – KungFu Kickball, the team-based sports platform fighter from developer WhaleFood Games and publisher Blowfish Studios, strikes Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam for Windows PC and Mac in Q1 2020.

Square off against friends in a fantasy sport that infuses the action of soccer with martial arts. Unleash a whirlwind of kicks, punches, and magical abilities to take out the opposing team and boot the ball downfield. Score points by overpowering or outmaneuvering rival defenders and send the ball crashing into one of the gigantic bells at either end of the stadium.

KungFu Kickball makes use of minimalistic controls to create an accessible yet competitive experience. Matches are fast-paced tug-of-war-style showdowns where players switch between offensive strikes and defensive stands at the drop of a hat — or the ring of a bell. And with six stages and three player classes to choose between, every match takes on its own character.

Featuring local and online 1v1 and 2v2 multiplayer, KungFu Kickball allows for rivalries to form on the couch or over the Internet. Challenge friends, foes, and strangers alike to see which side can pull off the best maneuvers and ultimately determine who is the KungFu Kickball master.

“KungFu Kickball is a new kind of sports game that injects the high-flying action of martial arts,” said Ben Lee, co-founder, Blowfish Studios. “As fans of both sport and kung fu action, we’re having a lot of fun with this project and look forward to sharing it with everyone early next year.”
