Steampunk Dungeon Crawler Vaporum Coming to Nintendo Switch This April!

Bratislava, Slovakia, March 8, 2019 – Fatbot Games and Merge Games are pleased to announce the unique steampunk dungeon crawler Vaporum is on its way to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Arriving April 9th thru 11th, depending on platform, Vaporum is an award-winning grid-based, single-player dungeon crawler game that uses a first-person perspective in an original steampunk setting. The game is inspired by old-school games like Dungeon Master I and II, the Eye of the Beholder series and the more recent Legend of Grimrock I and II.

Prepare to fight – you’ll encounter many enemies along your path. Each type has a distinctive set of strengths, weaknesses, and attack and defense mechanisms, so you’ll have to employ different tactics to beat them. Choose wisely when equipping yourself with gear; weapons differ from one another not only by damage levels and appearance, but also in terms of their unique bonuses or behaviors.

Use a wide range of skills thanks to the gadget-based RPG system: direct attacks, area attacks, offensive and defensive buffs, etc. But be careful, because while they are powerful, they also drain your energy. Remember that some enemies are immune to certain types of attack, so you will have to figure out the best way to deal with every encounter the game throws at you.

Solve intriguing puzzles and level-wide objectives where you will need to use both your wits and reflexes. While most riddles are contained in a single room, progression objectives can span entire levels, or even multiple ones.

Instead of increasing the abilities of your human character, improve your exoskeleton. Equip yourself with various items and define your own playstyle. Change your loadout at any time to adapt to all kinds of unexpected situations. As your exoskeleton becomes more powerful by absorbing a special substance – fumium – from defeated enemies, you will be able to unlock useful areas of the exo-rig, gaining significant permanent attribute bonuses and passive skills. Simply put – prepare for tonnes of customization.

VAPORUM – MAIN FEATURES:

  • Fight in real time – First-person real-time combat with deadly foes with varied abilities and behaviors
  • Be tactical – Use various attacks and read your opponents – each enemy has a different set of strengths and weaknesses
  • Fully voiced main characters – Find out what happened to the inhabitants of the tower with fully voiced phono-diaries kept by the main story’s protagonists
  • Tons of customization options  The gadget-based RPG system allows you to evolve your exoskeleton and define your own playstyle
  • Absorb fumium from defeated enemies – Unlock additional circuits in your exoskeleton and gain new bonuses and skills
  • Keep your wits about you – Solve level-wide objectives and puzzles that vary in difficulty
  • Explore and loot – Look for optional passages filled with additional challenges and rewards
  • What happened in the mysterious tower? – A storyline full of dark secrets and unexpected twists
  • Immersive steampunk setting – Beautiful graphics, stunning sound design and an atmosphere that makes you aware of the constant danger lurking around every corner

Vaporum will be released on the following dates/ formats:

  • Nintendo Switch: April 11th, 2019 ($24.99 / €24.99 / £19.99)
  •  Xbox One: April 10th, 2019 ($24.99 / €24.99 / £19.99)
  • PlayStation 4 EU: April 10th, 2019 (€24.99 / £19.99)
  • PlayStation 4 NA: April 9th, 2019 ($24.99)
