Go to Bullet Hell on April 18th When HELL IS OTHER DEMONS Launches on Nintendo Switch!

San Francisco (April 12th, 2019) – Demons? Heavy armaments? Synthwave? Welcome to hell, which also conveniently doubles as a fast-paced bullet hell platformer! Hell is Other Demons, developed by Cuddle Monster Games and published by Kongregate, officially launches on PC + Mac (via Kartridge), and Nintendo Switch on April 18th, 2019, with a Steam launch following on May 20th. Get ready to put your reflexes and arcade shooting to the test!

The concept here is nice and simple. You’re a demon. You don’t like other demons. Too bad hell is full of them. Grab the closest rocket launcher, sword, or laser gun and fight your way through the hellish masses. All of this is tied together with an instantly-striking aesthetic, mixing chunky pixels with bold color schemes to ensure you always know exactly what you’re dealing with, even if it’s a giant, saw-wielding skeleton bearing down on you.

Hell is Other Demons features an extensive campaign and upgrade system that will test your mettle against hordes of bullet fodder and giant, over-the-top bosses, as well as an endless cycle of demonic invasion in the procedurally generated Arcade Mode. The name of the game here is speed and precision, as you achieve that satisfying, zen-like state of being, air-dodging and weaving through more pixelated bullets than you can shake a floating skull at.

Couple this with a thumping synthwave soundtrack by Rémi Gallego (The Algorithm) and deliciously retro sound design by Magnus Pålsson (VVVVVV), and Hell is Other Demons will transport you into the bowels of hell. But like, with more bleeps and bloops.

Hell is Other Demons launches on April 18, 2019, with availability on PC and Mac (Kartridge), as well as Nintendo Switch. The game will then launch on Steam on May 20, 2019.

2D Combat Racer Speed Brawl Launches Today on Nintendo Switch!

San Francisco (Sept. 18th, 2018) – Independent developers Double Stallion and Kongregate, a leading publisher of console, mobile, PC, and web games, today announced the launch of Speed Brawl, the stylish, anime-inspired 2D combat-racer. Gear up and get ready to tear through an otherworldly gauntlet in Speed Brawl, available now* on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Steam, and GOG.

Set in Victorian-era London, the world has been dramatically changed by a war with the insect-like lunar invaders called Selenites. After claiming victory, humanity created a vicious bloodsport, “Speed Brawl,” which has attracted would-be brawlers from across the world to compete for fame and fortune. After forming a tag-team of two, combatants run the gauntlet against an onslaught of Selenites and bad-tempered human enforcers. The faster the brawlers are, the better their rewards… and the bigger the roar of the massive crowds of fans and spectators.

Players will need to find what tag-team combination works best for them in every challenge that the world of Speed Brawl will offer. Build out each brawler’s skills, equip the best accessories and double down on determination for the fastest and most furious fight of their lives.

These formidable fighters are ready to rumble on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Steam, and GOG. *European launch dates will be available in the coming weeks.

Story

Speed Brawl is set in a dystopic Victorian era London. After a decade of war with the Lunar invaders named the Selenites, the British Empire finally vanquished the insect-like menace; following the war, the Selenites became the new workforce of our industrial revolution, ushering in a new era of progress and prosperity. However, listlessness and disobedience rampaged throughout the middle and working classes. In order to satiate the masses, the ultimate entertainment, Speed Brawl, was created; an elite sport where only the bravest, the fastest, and the most worthy warriors could wage a petty war against the Selenite hordes. To prove your worth in this chaotic world filled with colour and calamity you’ve gotta fight, for your right… to… Speed Brawl!

Speed Brawl is releasing this September on Kartridge, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Steam.
