Aeon Drive

2Awesome Studio have announced their second original game: Aeon Drive, an action platformer game set in a cyberpunk version of Barcelona.

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

Aeon Drive is set in the same universe as Dimension Drive and continues the exploits of its hero, interstellar pilot Jackelyne, but the gameplay is radically different. This time Jack will leave her spaceship behind to explore a twisted, cyberpunk version of funky Barcelona to face her worst enemy – time. Jack will jump, slash, teleport and warp time in her tense race against the clock.

 

Teleport your way through time itself! Instead of using the usual try/die/repeat loop of most videogames, Aeon Drive features a unique time-warping system that saves players the frustration of repetition and keeps the challenge fresh. Is this level too hard? No problem, just recharge your timer before you run out of time and get those few seconds you need to beat the level. Run out of time-warping crystals and you will be on your own. Obstacles, enemies, and falls are your worst enemy, as time is always slipping away…

Aeon Drive is an action platformer game set in a cyberpunk version of Barcelona. The player controls Jack, a stranded space pilot on a quest to retrieve faulty pieces of dimension-bending machinery in order to preserve the space-time fabric of the universe. Jack will have to overcome a myriad obstacles using her sword, her teleportation dagger, and her unique skill to control time.

  • Speed-running platformer mechanics.
  • Eye-catching quality synthwave pixel art style.
  • Enjoy a sweet and shooty holiday in a cyberpunk version of tourist darling Barcelona.
  • Advanced scoring system that enables long term replayability.
  • Real-time difficulty adjustment – collect time-warping devices and use them strategically!
  • Compete against friends and Ashajuls through Discord integration.
  • Streaming mode to share your exploits with the rest of the galaxy.

They Bleed Pixels

Spooky Squid Games have announced that they are bringing They Bleed Pixels to the Nintendo Switch later this year.

As an anonymous student of the Lafcadio Academy for Troubled Young Ladies, you must battle through your nightmares to defeat a curse that’s slowly transforming your body into a clawed demonic form. Originally released for PC in 2012, They Bleed Pixels balances a perfect mix of fast-paced acrobatic platforming and fierce, one-button, slash’em up combat. By suppressing their urge to button mash in favour of focusing on stylish and smart kills, players are rewarded with a checkpoint they can choose when to place for safety… or try their luck by holding onto it for extra bonus points.

  • Hardcore original difficulty, plus an easier novice mode, to match a wide range of skills.
  • Striking art style mixes low-fi pixel art with organic ink and paper textures. 
  • Lush gothic-cute motion comics tell the story of a young girl haunted by eldritch nightmares.
