In case you have missed the great Nintendo Nindies Showcase: Publisher Headup Games and the Pixel Perfex team, in close collaboration with Nintendo, recently announced that Earth Atlantis is going to be released this fall on Nintendo Switch.
Rediscover humankind’s sunken world
Players will dive into a new, yet familiar post-apocalyptic world, as huge parts of the earth and most major cities have been flooded. They’ll explore sunken ruins of humankind in four different submarines, each equipped with individual weapons and each with different advantages.
Gameplay for this intense retro style side-scrolling shooter features hunting down monsters which inhabit the deep sea and were only known in fairy tales and as rumors among sailors, but now roam freely through the aquatic world.
Centuries-old art style
Earth Atlantis features a unique art style reminiscent of old explorers’ sketchbooks from the 14th century, a time when the seas were yet to be explored fully. During this time the sea was considered a dangerous place full of monster.
Earth Atlantis won the “Vermilion Gate” Award (Best in Show) during the 5th BitSummit 2017 in Kyoto, as well as the “Excellence in Art” Award during BIC Festival 2016 in Busan.
Many more details are sure to come, as well as a release date to be revealed in the weeks to follow.
