As expected, many developers announced games for the Nintendo Switch after the Nintendo Switch Presentation on Friday. And that’s exactly what Raw Fury did, when they announced not one, but two games for the Nintendo Switch: GoNNER and Kingdom!
GoNNER is is a ‘tough as hell score-based procedurally-generated platformer with roguelike elements’ (now that’s a mouthful!), which features a story about friendship between Ikk, Death, and a space whale named Sally. According to the developers, the game is extremely hard, and you’d better prepare yourself to die a lot (though never due to something unfair).
Here’s the trailer and some screenshots for GoNNER:
Here’s the main features of the game:
- UNLOCKS! You’ll be able to choose from a variety of passive and active abilities at the beginning of each run so be sure to experiment with all of them and find the play style that best suits you.
- SECRETS! Secret areas exist in the world of GoNNER, and these areas will get you different items that you can then always use from the beginning of each run. We’re not going to tell you how you get to these areas or what the criteria is for even finding them because secrets, duh.
- SOUNDS! It has them!
- LEADERBOARDS! Kill creatures, get combos, score points, and brag to your friends how much better you are than them.
- MUSIC! It’s really freaking good.
Kingdom is a “2D sidescrolling strategy/resource management hybrid with a minimalist feel wrapped in a beautiful, modern pixel art aesthetic”. Here’s a trailer, to give you an idea of what the game is like:
But that’s not all: Raw Fury also has other games for the Nintendo Switch, but those will be revealed at a later date. More details will be revealed at the Game Developer Conference, in March!
