MADRID, SPAIN – May 10, 2018 – Immortal Redneck, the Egyptian-themed first-person shooter with roguelike elements from developer Crema, is available now on Nintendo Switch with new gyro aiming controls.
After dying in a dune buggy wreck in the sands of Egypt, a Redneck resurrects as a mummy hellbent on finding out who wrapped him up. His quest for revenge and answers leads him to three constantly shifting pyramids full of monsters once thought of as legends. With a wild mix of weaponry, blessings from ancient gods, and good-’ol-fashioned FPS skills, the Redneck may just be able to find what he seeks.
These procedurally-generated pyramids serve as proving grounds that test players’ proficiency at old-school FPS techniques like circle-strafing and bunny-hopping. The Redneck is better at dodging bullets than taking them, so fast, evasive play is as important as a quick trigger finger. Zip around vibrant hand-crafted rooms with a graphical style inspired by classic Nintendo games while gunning down malicious monsters who want a tasty, country-fried Redneck for a snack.
More than 50 weapons of the conventional, futuristic, and mystical varieties means there’s always something fun in the Redneck’s future. 100 game-changing scrolls significantly alter playthroughs, but watch out when picking them up. Scrolls range from helpful (more weapon damage!) to harmful (lose current weapon) to just plain bizarre (lower gravity, anyone?).
Dying isn’t the end in Immortal Redneck. Though the pyramids’ layouts change, money gained while inside buys permanent stat upgrades, level modifiers, and new player classes called favors of the gods. These favors each have their own active and passive abilities so everyone can earn something that suits them.
“We’ve been dying (and resurrecting again and again…) to bring Immortal Redneck to the Switch,” said Guillermo Andrades, Co-Founder, Crema. “We know players want more shooters on the system, and we think ours will make them very happy.”
Immortal Redneck is now available on Nintendo Switch in English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Polish, and Korean for $19.99 USD / €19.99 / £17.99. Crema’s first-person shooter is also available on Steam, the PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live.

MADRID, SPAIN – April 17, 2018 – Immortal Redneck, the Egyptian-themed first-person shooter with roguelike elements from developer Crema, will be available on Nintendo Switch on May 10, 2018.
When the titular Redneck crashes his dune buggy in Egypt, he awakens as a mummy with guns in his hands and questions on his mind. By using classic FPS techniques like circle-strafing and bunny-hopping he will shoot his way through mythological monsters in the pyramids and discover who the heck wrapped him up.
Player will run-and-gun through three procedurally-generated pyramids and find more than 50 powerful weapons and game-changing scrolls, ensuring no two playthroughs are the same. With more than 50 weapons, 100 game-changing scrolls that help or hinder a run, and nine different player classes, the redneck has plenty of options for avenging his untimely demise.
With each death, the Redneck rises anew. Between runs, he can spend money accrued while plundering the ancient temples on stat upgrades, new classes with both active and passive abilities, and scrolls that modify the next run.
Scrolls are risky and come in positive and negative flavors, adding fun permutations. The Troll’s Foot scroll can be a blessing since it provided immunity to standing in lava and acid, but draw a negative scroll like Caution, Wet Floor, and the Redneck will continuously slide everywhere forever unable to stop.
“Immortal Redneck’s scrolls ensure that each run keeps players on their toes, which is perfect for the Nintendo Switch system’s pick-up-and-play nature,” said Guillermo Andrades, Co-Founder, Crema. “As one of the first retro-style first-person shooters on Nintendo Switch, we hope to soon see people blasting and bunny-hopping in public!”
Immortal Redneck will be available on Nintendo Switch in English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Polish, and Korean for $19.99 USD / €19.99 / £17.99. The game will be available for preview on April 19. Crema’s first-person shooter is currently available on Steam, the PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live.
