Godstrike

Freedom Games have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Godstrike, a boss rush bullet-hell shooter developed by OverPowered Games. It will be released on April 15th in Europe and North America for $14.99 with a 20% off launch discount. It will be playable in the following languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Korean, and Japanese.

Here’s some footage, some details, and some screenshots for the game:

Centuries after a divine power divided itself between seven mysterious masks, chaos reigns. Now inhabiting vessels called Heralds, these seven entities spend eternity fighting each other as the world decays around them. That is, all but one. Talaal, the forgotten seventh mask, and its new Herald Yissia stand alone. Only together can they stop their siblings’ apocalyptic war. 

Don the mask of Talaal and duel against devilish monstrosities in multi-stage boss battles with breakneck speed. Go in guns blazing, weaving through oncoming fire, and unleashing a torrent of heavenly abilities to overcome adversaries as quickly as possible. Time is of the essence, because in Godstrike as the seconds count down, so too does our hero’s health bar.

Time is both life and a currency. Talaal and Yissia lose valuable seconds needed to complete their mission for every hit they take. So the pair must make calculated moves before each showdown, shuffling between an ever-expanding stockpile of skills to help defend against their foes’ strengths while taking advantage of weaknesses. 

Every second counts in the fight against the Heralds, but running out of time is never the end. Progress through the Campaign Mode, unlocking and setting skills with each Herald defeated while Talaal’s tale unfolds. Experiment with more than 20 skills like Spark, a flashy move making the seventh mask impervious to harm while inflicting damage of its own upon contact. Mix and match powers, experimenting with synergies and strategies, on the road to victory.

Utilize every ability in the arsenal in Arcade Mode or dare to take on the celestial beasts in Challenge mode with randomized boss orders and mysterious blessings bestowed after each fight. Strive to become the champion in Daily Challenge runs, devious randomized crusades that shift and change every 24 hours. For those feeling social, built-in Twitch features allow livestream viewers to impact the action, deciding battles’ status effects by popular vote.

Fire Tonight

Here’s some footage for Fire Tonight, along with some more details:

Inspired by the song Fire Tonight from the synth-pop band Information Society’s 1990 album Hack, the game follows a couple’s journey to reconnect in a burning city.

Meet Maya and Devin, Fire Tonight’s dual protagonists. When an inferno engulfs their metropolis in the early-90s, the young couple must find safety amidst the fearsome flames, overcome their personal hang-ups, and ultimately reunite without the help of modern tools we take for granted like cell phones.

Help Maya avoid the heat! Dodge flames and the fuzz by solving puzzles to move through the city. Can Maya evade the danger all around her and find her way back to Devin?  Calm Devin’s nerves as he paces around his apartment awaiting Maya’s return. Interact with objects in the apartment to learn more about the couple’s past.
