Tanuki Sunset Coming to Nintendo Switch!

25 OCTOBER, 2022 – Be a zoomy raccoony in Tanuki Sunset, the chill longboarding game with a breezy, retro vibe coming soon to consoles courtesy of publisher Digerati. Tanuki Sunset will launch 2nd November on PlayStation, and 4th November for Xbox.

A Nintendo Switch version is being self-published by developer Rewind Games and will be released at a later date (still TBC).

The debut title from Vancouver based studio, Rewind Games, Tanuki Sunset reflects the two man team’s shared love of listening to music while cruising on their longboards. It started to take shape as a game concept when they noticed a gap in the market, as co-creators Adir Fakiro and Jose Maria Leon explain:

“After stumbling upon videos of downhill longboard sessions, we came to realize there aren’t many games based on the sport. We instantly started imagining a raccoon grinding his paws on tarmac trying to drift down a windy road at high speeds. Who doesn’t love raccoons? They’re little daredevils and trouble makers.”

Tanuki Sunset is already available on PC and currently has a ‘Very Positive’ user rating on Steam, with 94% positive reviews.

About the game

Tanuki Sunset is a fun, arcade-style longboarding game starring a radical, thrill-seeking raccoon! Get into a flow state and master the art of drifting as you speed downhill – dodging traffic, catching air, and nailing tricks – in a bid to become the first raccoon to complete Sunset Island’s legendary longboard trail!

Key Features

  • Race the trail, with stages set across Sunset Peaks, Midnight City, and Sunrise Beach
  • Friendly control scheme makes it easy to pick up, play, and get in the zone
  • Try multiple modes, including story mode, endless mode, score, and time trials
  • Collect Tanuki Bits as you race, and spend them on new gear at Bob’s Skate Shop
  • Enjoy a colorful, retro art style and a laid-back sun-kissed soundtrack

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.

The Outbound Ghost Materializing Later This Year on Nintendo Switch!

24 MARCH, 2022 – Indie publisher Digerati is delighted to confirm the news that it’s bringing The Outbound Ghost, a hauntingly adorable RPG, to PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S later this year (Q4 2022).

In development since 2020 at Swiss studio Conradical Games (aka solo dev Conrad Grindheim),The Outbound Ghost combines quests, exploration, turn-based combat, and crafting. A story-driven adventure, players take control of an amnesiac spook with no memory of who they are or how they died.

Arriving in Outbound, a small village with its own mysterious and tragic past, the spectral protagonist finds it haunted by former residents unable to pass over to the other side. The player must help the ghostly inhabitants resolve their unfinished earthly business and find peace, allowing the restless souls to ascend to the afterlife.

The Outbound Ghost is the third game developed by Conradical Games, following the previously released Lootbox Lyfe and Girabox. Collaborating on the game with programmer, designer, and project lead Conrad Grindheim are composer Kimmo Savilampi (Aria Disconnect) and character artist Clayton Chowaniec (Rog & Roll).

Publishing partner Digerati is also working with Conradical Games to help the developer bring its vision for the game to fruition, as Grindheim explains:

“Due to budget restraints, early iterations of The Outbound Ghost lacked combat and important gameplay features. However, with Digerati supporting development, the game is now shaping up to become more aligned with what I’ve always wanted it to be.”

“The aim is to create a compelling story that seamlessly integrates with original gameplay. That’s something I’ve prioritized since day one. We still have work to do, but I’m already very happy with the narrative design. I don’t want to elaborate and give too much away, but there are multiple ‘paradigm shifts’ in the game that I hope will make for unforgettable story beats.”

About the game

The Outbound Ghost is an adventure RPG about helping ghosts ascend to the afterlife. The town of Outbound is, quite literally, a ghost town – a home to troubled spooks with unresolved earthly issues, condemning them to an eternity haunting their old *ahem* haunts.
