The Plane Effect

PQube have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: The Plane Effect, a dystopian adventure game developed by Studio Kiku and Innovina Interactive.

No release date yet, but here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots for the game:

It is your last day, it is time to clock out and head home.

But where is ho̷me?
And what is home?
Are you alone, Solo?

The Plane Effect puts you in the shoes of Solo, a lonely office worker on his final day at the office and it is time to return to your beautiful family. You do have a family, don’t you? You think you do. You remember having a wife and child… you’re sure of it. 

Toying with your grip of reality and distorting the balance of time and space, Solo battles adversity as he traverses the abstruse and deeply aesthetic world of The Plane Effect.

Along the dangerous path that Solo walks, you’ll be challenged with untangling impossible series’ of events, getting to grips with the intangible and using logic to overcome the increasingly illogical dystopia around you.

Fallen Knight

Here’s some more details and some screenshots for Fallen Knight:

Fallen Knight is a futuristic knight’s tale that lets gamers play as a descendant of the great Lancelot in King Arthur’s tale. Players will take on the role of Lancelot the 49th in a futuristic setting, facing off against six unique enemy heroes with a dark past of their own. Lancelot must save his city from an evil organization, The Purge, that intends to reveal the ‘truth’ of what is hidden below the city. His journey will not only shine light onto the secrets hidden in the dark but also challenge what it truly means to be a knight.

Next, here’s some details and the list of key features for Galahad’s Path (a major update):

Play as Galahad, an Assassin from the Knights of the Round Table. Players will take an alternative route through the story and help Galahad save Neo Utopia from The Purge. ‘Galahad’s Path’ brings rogue-like gameplay to Fallen Knight, where players only have “one life”. If players fail, they will have to restart from the first stage so be careful!

  • 3 New Stages 
  • Upgraded Enemies

However, some of the challenges in the ‘Boss Rush Mode’ will limit which skills Lancelot can equip. This means players need to adapt to the situation and skill restrictions to pass each challenge.

  • Timed Attack
    • Defeat or Disarm the bosses as fast as possible and prove yourself as the greatest Knight of the Round Table.
  • Trials of Excalibur
    • Defeat or Disarm all 6 Bosses under certain conditions to unlock the Legendary Holy Sword, Excalibur in the store.
      • Handicap Trial
        • Start the boss fight with 3 HP.
      • No Blessing Trial
        • Lancelot will not have access to the Wrath of God meter during the battle. (Cannot heal or use Wrath of God)
