Kaet Must Die! Nintendo Switch Announced & Detailed [FOOTAGE]

 

Independent developer Strength in Numbers Studios is proud to announce that Kaet Must Die! will be ready to make players around the world scream, when the scariest and hardest new game on Steam launches on April 5, 2018, with Nintendo Switch™ and Microsoft® Xbox One versions soon to follow. Players can get a taste of the uncompromising challenge of Kaet Must Die! at this year’s Game Developer’s Conference (GDC), as Strength in Numbers will be on-hand and available for playable demos, live streams and developer interviews at GDC Booth Number PL 4255.

Designed to be the most brutal, unforgiving game ever made with plenty of jump scares and unlimited deaths thrown in for good measure, Kaet Must Die! is a first-person, horror puzzle game that finds players taking on the role of Kaetheran, a powerful psionicist who has woken up alone in a dark sewer. Stripped of her powers, and surrounded by an army of unholy creatures who have one mission – to kill her – players must help Kaetheran survive through exploration and deciphering clues to solve puzzles, gain new abilities, and unravel the mystery as to why literally everyone and everything wants her to die.

Available to play publicly for the first time at the Games Developers Conference in San Francisco from March 21 through March 23, Kaet Must Die! will be ready to accept all who think they can avoid the constant threat of death. In the meantime, all are welcome to try their hand at the Kaet Must Die! demo on Steam, featuring an early build of the title’s first level.

“Be prepared to die. A lot,” says Strength in Numbers CEO, Scott Rescheke. “Kaet Must Die! was designed to punish players with its over-the-top difficulty and to appeal to those hungry for a true challenge. We’re looking forward to seeing lots of games journalists die, and die again when we show off the game at this year’s GDC.”

 

 

You are Kaetheran, an extremely powerful psionicist with a flair for cyberpunk style. You have awoken in a dank-AF sewer without your mind powers. You must figure out how to escape the sewer without losing your life while the blood witch Annalinnia tries to make you insane.

Super Mario Odyssey’s DLC “Luigi’s Balloon World” Launches New Gameplay & Outfits

Here’s the official explanation of the new modes:

Once players download the free update and complete the main story, Balloon World will become available, and players just have to find Luigi in each Kingdom and speak with him to get started. In “Hide It” mode, players have a limited amount of time to hide a balloon, while in “Find It” mode, players have the same period of time to locate balloons hidden by other players from around the world. Creative use of captures is key to success! Whether players are hiding balloons or finding them, their Rank will go up based on their high score. While playing Balloon World, the atmosphere will change for each kingdom: for example, it might be raining in New Donk City, or the sun might be setting in Tostarena.”

Licensing Source Book Europe Leaks Crash Bandicoot Trilogy Switch Port [DETAILS]

 

 

DHX’s 2018 Spring Licensing Source Book Europe published an outline set forth by Activision pacing a 5 year development focus on the series carrying the IP to other consoles through the year 2022. See Below:

 

 

It might seem strange seeing Crash Bandicoot focusing on a rival of Sony platforms rather than continued effort on the platform in which it came since now porting over Nintendo Switch. It should be interpreted easily as the wisest target audience to penetrate with the series as the demographic seems more fitting and encourages greater revenue as result. Sony has never held any first party rights to the series itself despite how aggressive the mascot marketing appeared to consumers in past generations. While Insomniac developed Spyro, Naughty Dog developed Crash, and Universal Interactive Studios published both IP licensed at Sony. The IP became property of Vivendi following their purchase of UIS, and Activision has since acquired Vivendi and thus now controls where to focus the series moving forward.
