Digerati have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Straimium Immortaly, a surreal shoot ’em up developed by Caiysware (who previously worked on Skelly Selest). It will be released on December 25th in Europe and North America.
Here’s a trailer, some details, and the list of key features:
The frenetic follow-up to Caiysware’s Skelly Selest, Straimium Immortaly combines the developer’s unique pixel-art aesthetic with a mountain of loot to collect, upgrades to unlock, and weapons to wield. Straimium Immortaly drops players into the Cubicus – a peculiar and perilous procedurally-generated realm of outlandish oddness where they must explore, power-up, loot, and shoot to survive!
Bosses and beasties abound in this bizarre and vibrant roguelite/shump/dungeon crawler hybrid. Armed with a jetpack and a smorgasbord of weapons and power-ups, Straimium Immortaly pits your lone warrior against the forces of the Queeni Emperess. Agility, precision, and loads of loot are your only means of surviving the Cubicus.
- A world like no other: explore the bizarre, butts-hard procedurally generated and monster-filled rooms of the Cubicus
- Otherworldly pixel-art: old-school pixels meet vibrant new-school style
- Fly quickly, carry a big gun: from the Ionic Laser to the lightning-blasting Electra Casta, wield an arsenal of 25+ upgradeable weapons and 50+ items
- Unleash ninja powers: discover and harness a variety of mysterious shinobi abilities
- KO XL baddies: defeat a myriad of huge monstrous bosses in your bid to rid the galaxy of Queeni taint!
- Your fight, your way: unlockable classes, mutators, cheats and hats. Level seeds and size options to customize your run. Boss Rush mode, Incursion mode, and more
- A whole ton of stats: keep track of your progress through leaderboards, achievements, and compendiums of enemies, bosses, weapons, items, and more
