The game is available for $19.99 / €19.99 / £16.99 on all platforms; it is also verified for Steam Deck.

Select from a number of Swordship variants, each with its own unique active power, offering the opportunity to experiment with a variety of approaches to overcome challenging and dangerous levels.

The megacities exchange millions of containers loaded with goods every day while those on the outside scrape what they can together in order to survive. You play as one of the small number of inhabitants prepared to steal those precious containers to deliver vital supplies to those that have been banished to the outside.

Swordship’s procedurally generated levels require the player to bet on their skills,” said Game Designer Sandro Dall’Aglio. “Give it a few runs until it clicks and you will discover an exhilarating and challenging title unlike anything else out there. I can’t wait for everyone to try it on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC.”

Gothenburg, Sweden – September 15th, 2022: In collaboration with the LEGO GroupThunderful are excited to announce that their highly anticipated brick-building adventure, LEGO Bricktales, will be hitting PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on October 12th.

Developed by the team behind the Bridge Constructor series, LEGO Bricktales sees you journeying across 5 beautiful LEGO themed biomes as you search for inspiration to help your grandfather reinvigorate his rundown amusement park. An intuitive new brick-by-brick building mechanic will help you solve the many fun puzzles you encounter on this adventure and bring your solutions to life.

With the power of your imagination, LEGO Bricktales tasks you with putting together cool aesthetic creations, such as market stands and music boxes, as well as testing your building skills with functional physics-based puzzles like building cranes and gyrocopters. You’ll need them to help out the LEGO Minifigures you will meet in each diorama and unlock new skills through your good deeds.

LEGO Bricktales’ adventure will take you through the green foliage of the deepest jungles, the scorching sand of sun-drenched deserts, the hustle and bustle of a city corner, the epic sight of a towering medieval castle and the paradise of tropical Caribbean islands. In each, you will find a variety of construction spots with their own sets of bricks – it’s up to you to figure out a unique build that will work. Whether you’re being asked to put on your designer hat and build a throne fit for a king or testing your engineering skills to build a bridge that will get a digger across a river, how you construct your builds and meet the challenges you’re being offered is up to you!

Swordship Begins in December on Nintendo Switch!

Gothenburg, Sweden – August 26th, 2022 – Thunderful and Digital Kingdom are excited to announce that their anticipated dodge’em up, Swordship, will be ducking and weaving onto PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC in December 2022. Swordship was just revealed in IGN’s Awesome Indies showcase along with a new release window trailer for the thrilling action title, offering players a look at Swordship’s innovative dodge-based gameplay style which flips the switch on traditional arcade shooters.

Swordship is a nail-biting and intense dodging game where placement and precision are everything. As you speed through a post-apocalyptic flooded Earth pursued by hostile forces, you must duck and weave your way between hordes of enemies and their attacks, misleading them into taking each other out with slick and skilful movement.

Swordship is set in an unforgiving post-apocalyptic world where the consequences of global warming have forced the vast majority of humanity to take refuge in three gigantic underwater cities. The megacities exchange millions of containers loaded with goods every day while those on the outside scrape what they can together in order to survive. You play as one of the small number of inhabitants prepared to steal those precious containers to deliver vital supplies to those that have been banished to the outside.

Players are given the freedom of choice in selecting from a number of different Swordship variants, each coming with its own unique active power, offering the opportunity to experiment with a variety of approaches to overcome challenging and dangerous levels. Players can further experiment with their play style by choosing between risking it all and banking stolen containers for massive score boosts or, playing it safe for passive upgrades and extra ships that will fit your own unique style.

Having a streamlined and ultra-fast boat stripped of bulky and heavy weapons is a vital asset for a smuggler trying to get their stolen goods from one place to another as quickly as possible, but leaves you vulnerable to attack. That’s why only the most skilled pilots can hope to survive. Using your movement speed, turning the attacks of enemies against them and mastering the different weather conditions offered by procedurally generated levels is the only way to make it out alive.

Swordship is a game that requires the player to bet on his skills: the only difference between the top of the rankings and a ‘game over’ is too much confidence,” said Game Designer Sandro Dall’Aglio. “We’re so excited for you all to try Swordship out when it launches on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC this December and can’t wait to hear your feedback.”

Cursed to Golf Now Available on Nintendo Switch!

Golfenburg, Sweden – August 18th – Thunderful and Chuhai Labs are delighted to see their heavily anticipated ‘Golf-Like’, Cursed to Golf, drive its way onto PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch today. Cursed to Golf is a genre-twisting 2D roguelite golfer that features outlandish special abilities, diverse biomes, challenging bosses and a soundtrack that slaps harder than any heard in a golf game before.

“We’re so excited that people are finally being let loose on our dungeon-like course today on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC,” said Chuhai Labs’ Game Director Liam Edwards. “Best of luck beating my scores on the online leaderboard!”

“A quote? Dude I dunno, just like… buy it,” said Mark Lentz, Producer at Chuhai Labs. “It’s a Thursday, treat yo’self.”

Step into the (golf) shoes of a would-be golf champion who tragically dies just as he’s about to win a tournament. Instead of making it to heaven (or hell), you find yourself in Golf Purgatory. If you can golf your way through the ever-changing 18 hole course spread across four biomes (Purgatory, The Oasis, The Caverns and Hell), you’ll be able to ascend back to life. Prepare for dungeon-like holes, often with multiple paths to the flag, littered with Grave Grabbers, deadly spikes, explosive TNT boxes and all manner of other traps and hazards.

Fear not, cursed golfer. For all the hazards that stand in your path, consider Chuhai Labs your friendly caddy, handing you a host of helpful tools to give you a chance of overcoming them. Shot Idols are a blessing from the golf god, awarding you extra shots for smashing through them, teleporters will take you closer to the flag, even TNT boxes can sometimes hide shortcuts, should you detonate them properly! On top of that, ACE CARDS offer you awesome single-use abilities that you could never use in real life. Rewind time with a Mulligan, freeze water with the Ice Ball, guide your ball to its target with the Rocket Ball, get out of sticky situations with a Portal and blast your ball into three with the Scattershot. These are just a few of the over 20 power ups you’ll have access to.

In between holes, you’ll be able to drive around the map in your Golf Cart. You might discover some treasure chests, card packs, or come across a totally-not-shady-at-all guy who will meet you at forks in the road and help you choose a path to take. It’s always a good idea to stop by the Eterni-Tee shop to buy card booster packs, switch up your outfit, or store a few special cards in your binder so they can survive in between runs.

Swordship Brings Unique Dodge‘Em Up Action This September To Nintendo Switch!

Gothenburg, Sweden – April 6th, 2022 – Thunderful and Digital Kingdom are pleased to announce that their anticipated dodge’em up, Swordship, will be winging its way onto PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC this September. A new release window trailer for the thrilling action title offers players a look at Swordship’s innovative dodge-based gameplay hook.

Swordship asks the question: what would a shoot’em up look like if you removed the shooting? The answer is an intense dodging game where placement is everything. As you speed through a post-apocalyptic flooded Earth pursued by hostile forces, you must weave your way between enemies and their attacks, tricking them into taking each other out with slick and skillful movement.

Swordship is set in a world where the consequences of global warming have forced the vast majority of humanity to take refuge in three gigantic underwater cities. Those who are expelled from the cities barely survive on the burned lands. Meanwhile, the megacities exchange millions of containers loaded with goods every day. You play as one of the small number of inhabitants prepared to steal those precious containers and deliver vital supplies to the banished.

Having an ultra fast boat stripped of bulky and heavy weapons is an asset for a smuggler trying to get their stolen goods from one place to another as quickly as possible, but leaves you vulnerable to attack. That’s why only the most skilled pilots can survive. Using your movement speed, turning the attacks of enemies against them and mastering the different weather conditions offered by procedurally generated levels is the only way to survive.

Players have the option of selecting from a number of different Swordship variants that each come with their own unique active power, offering the opportunity to experiment with a variety of approaches to overcoming the game’s challenging levels. Players can further tweak their playstyle by spending some of their stolen spoils on passive upgrades that can be accumulated throughout a run to boost their ships abilities and give them a better chance of making it through in one piece.

“We’ve been thrilled by the positive response we’ve had to Swordship since we first unveiled it last year,” said Game Designer Sandro Dall’Aglio. “People really seemed to have grasped the intriguing gameplay potentials our unique ‘dodge’em up’ hook offers right off the bat! I can’t wait for everyone to finally be able to play the game when it launches on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC this September.”
