Details of each game below, but if you’re attending EGX 2019 at London’s Excel between the 17th-20th October 2019 – as we will be – you’ll certainly want to check out these indie additions. They’ll be found in the Rezzed Zone.
- Streets of Rage 4 – Co-developed alongside Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games, Streets of Rage 4 brings the iconic series back with a masterful tribute to and revitalisation of the classic action fans adore. Amongst the best beat’em up series ever created, this latest instalment of Streets of Rage features jammin’ ‘90s beats from the original series composers, new playable characters and a fluid, exaggerated art style. The game’s hand-drawn animation adds a burst of flair to every pummelling while still encompassing the gritty aesthetic perfected within the original trilogy.
- Windjammers 2 channels the original arcade classic’s infectious attitude in beautiful hand-drawn animations, bursts of colour and totally fly visual effects that bring the series’ signature flair to life. Combining everything fans love about the classic title, Windjammers 2 will bring new stages and characters, surprising and amazing new power moves and enhanced gameplay mechanics
- KUNAI – Fighting through KUNAI’s visually enrapturing world is a warrior’s delight, where right off the bat players have ample opportunities to reduce enemies to scrap metal while swinging on ropes across chasms, dashing up walls to lofty goals, and dropping in on unsuspecting targets. KUNAI’s journey is dialled to 11 from the start, with every badass fight, supremely lethal upgrade and unearthed secret sending the adventure further off the charts. Bursts of action pop boldly across KUNAI’s distinct art direction with sharp splashes of colour accentuating attacks, making each battle an engrossing, thrilling spectacle.
- Young Souls – a co-operative action RPG in which a pair of loner teens stumble upon a looming threat to humanity emerging from an alternate dimension, welcomes players into its charming world and beast-ridden dungeons in early 2020. Jenn and Tristan are two teenagers who find themselves suddenly abandoned and without a family until a good-hearted scientist adopts and brings them into his home settled within a small port town. Life in Portsbourgh for Jenn and Tristan proves uneventful. Uneventful, that is, until they uncover a portal to another world which threatens the very existence of life on Earth as we know it.
