Here’s a trailer, some details, and the list of key features for the game:

Reed failed, the old supercomputer is powered down, the only way to save the virtual world is to find the Developer to save what remains of it! Join Reed on another quest to save the virtual world!

Reed awakens… to the memories of the old supercomputer… Reed failed. The reboot failed and now the digital world is once again breaking down. Before the old supercomputer malfunctioned, it gave Reed backup files that must be delivered to the Developer. Collect information cubes once again in a desolate version of the last remnants of the digital world. Dodge floor spikes, razor blades, enemies, and wall arrows to reach the next stage! Find hidden survivors trying to escape from the new horrors of the corruption.

The virtual world is now doomed, can you get to the Developer?

Breakpoint

The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Breakpoint, a stylized twin-stick arcade game developed by Studio Aesthesia. It will be released later this year in Europe and North America.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and the list of key features for the game:

Defeat waves of enemies with melee weapons that EXPLODE after reaching their breaking point, dealing devastating damage across the blast zone. ‘Breakpoint’ is inspired by early 2000s arcade titles like ‘Geometry Wars,’ where action and mayhem go hand in hand. Grab hold of a hammer, double-sided ax – even a katana! – and other weapons to conquer waves of enemies.

  • Unlike traditional twin-stick titles, ‘Breakpoint’ uses melee combat
  • Destroying enemies gains XP for the weapon, not the player
  • Many layers of discovery, including evolution trees for each weapon
  • Maxed out weapons become powerful AOE attack opportunities
