Endling – Extinction is Forever Starts 2021 on Nintendo Switch!

Barcelona, Spain / Giebelstadt, Germany, September 24th 2019: Are you aware, that according to a recent study, published by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, about 27% – or in numbers: more than 28.000 – of animal species on our planet Earth are threatened with irreversible extinction? That’s thousands of species such as Rhinos, Lions, Tigers, Seals, and Bears, jeopardized by pollution, hunting and the ever increasing loss of their natural habitats.

Imagine now, mankind, in its neverending effort to ravage the planet, has brought even the beautiful and cunning foxes – one of the most adaptable creatures of the animal kingdom – close to extinction. It will be your mission to safely guide a fox mother, the last of her kind, and her three vulnerable cubs through the dystopian future of an exploited Earth, where there is barely enough room or food for them to survive. On her journey to find the last safe haven, the vixen has to be sly to avoid hunters, find and gather food for her family, and overcome all dangers that lie ahead.

While leading the skulk to safety, the pups will grow (level up), learn new helpful skills and get stronger. As your challenges increase, so will the stakes of your decisions of how to protect your younglings from looming perma-death. Can you give this Endling a last glimmer of hope?

“We are truly and deeply worried about climate change and natural disasters caused by humans. This game aims to help raise awareness about real environmental issues.”

Endling – Extinction is Forever is a sidescrolling 3D survival adventure developed by Spanish Herobeat Studios for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch and scheduled to release in 2021. The game is powered by Unreal Engine 4.

Townsmen out now on Nintendo Switch!

Giebelstadt, Germany, November 9th: Hear ye, hear ye! Important news for all of you who own a Nintendo Switch! Townsmen is out now, so all budding architects and town-planners can begin designing the medieval metropolis of their dreams. Whether it’s from the comfort of your own home or out and about, Townsmen is the must-have city-builder on Nintendo Switch.

Townsmen (Switch) is based on the long-lasting Townsmen series and comes with a carriage-load of content: players can pick between 26 different scenarios – such as protecting a city under siege from bandits or making sure the King’s birthday party is a huge success – or play one of 24 sandbox maps and build a thrilling town from scratch. It’s up to you as a wise ruler and careful planner to fulfill the needs of your beloved Townies, who follow individual daily routines.

In Townsmen Switch players can research up to 75 different technologies, 45 production buildings and 129 other structures, all of which need to be considered if you want to succeed: Townies appreciate short commutes to work and love to enjoy food or relax in nearby parks when off the clock. But with so many different elements to consider, including the elements themselves (seasons and weather strongly impact planning – Townies consume way more water during summer, for instance), crafting the perfect home won’t be simple.

Townsmen is available now for Nintendo Switch with an SRP of 19,99 € / 19,99 $. The game is developed and published by HandyGames.
