Chihuahua, Mexico — Jan. 25, 2022.
The Mexico-based indie games developer/publisher Lienzo today announced with great delight and excitement that their Latin-futurism cyberstone colossus fighter “Aztech Forgotten Gods” is coming to PC (via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store), PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch on March 10th, 2022.
Guide Achtli, a cybernetically enhanced warrior, on a quest to save Tenochtitlan, her home and the crown of the Aztec Empire. For centuries, the Aztec people and their city have thrived away from European interference, leading to unprecedented technological advancements. Now, something strange stirs, and the awakening of an unfamiliar enemy threatens the very survival of the Mesoamerican metropolis.
Armed with Lightkeeper, a powerful prosthetic arm powered by a mysterious energy, Achtli must stand tall against fearsome foes. Harness Lightkeeper’s latent abilities to leap into action, delivering shattering blows to gods seeking to wipe out her beloved city. Use Lightkeeper to propel Achtli across Tenochtitlan, zooming past floating buildings, grinding brightly lit railings, and bringing her close to pummel colossi standing in her way before hammering them with rocket-powered strikes.
Engage in action-packed combat blending mobility and precision timing during intense showdowns. Master aerial maneuvers to out-position, flank, and strike critical weaknesses to turn the tide of combat in Achtli’s favor. Embrace the power of Lightkeeper to become a guardian of Tenochtitlan and the Aztec people.
“Aztech Forgotten Gods is a celebration of our cultural heritage that combines action, heart, and more,” said Guillermo Vizcaino, Head of PR & Marketing and Lead Writer, Lienzo.
“Bringing Tenochtitlan and Achtli’s story to life has been our studio’s most rewarding project and we cannot wait to share Aztech Forgotten Gods with the world on March 10, 2022!”
Aztech Forgotten Gods will launch on Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on March 10, 2022, with English, Spanish, French, Italian, German and Russian language support.
