Roguelite platformer FALLING OUT announced for console, PC – Gematsu


Publisher Firestoke and developer PolyCrunch Games have announced roguelite platformer FALLING OUT for console and PC (Steam). A demo is now available for PC.
FALLING OUT was inspired by the charmingly colorful 16-bit era of gaming, the challenging and rewarding nature of classic roguelikes but with the aim to bring it to a wider audience,” said PolyCrunch Games founder Neville Attard in a press release. “Firestoke was the perfect partner for my vision due to their desire to make accessible games that everyone can enjoy. That’s what we’re building and I can’t wait for everyone to try the demo!”
Firestoke founder and CEO Paul Farley added, “We’re delighted to have partnered with PolyCrunch Games to bring FALLING OUT to a global audience. Our aim is to deliver compact, accessible, social and—most importantly—joyful games for console and PC. FALLING OUT is all of those things and much more! The game is currently scheduled to be our first release and we can’t wait to share it with players later in 2022.”
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
FALLING OUT is a charming, light-hearted and accessible 2D roguelite adventure.
Take control of two accidental adventurers, as you explore ancient kingdoms, discover treasures (be careful of the traps!) and bump into the equally lost shopkeeper, Azar. Collect items to craft weird weapons and useful objects that will help you traverse the world in this unplanned escapade.
It was supposed to be a relaxing vacation but ditch the itinerary because you’ll now need to choose your own path. Navigate through procedurally generated levels that offer the perfect balance of risk and reward. Help Giorgio and Felicie overcome their differences and work as a team in single-player or co-op. However you play, you’ll need to work together to conquer the unique obstacles and challenges scattered throughout each world.
