Press release:
QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC (JANUARY 10, 2019) – Chainsawesome Games, the Quebec-based Indie game studio behind Knight Squad — and a judges pick in the 2018 Ubisoft Indie Challenge, today launched their strategic 3v3 team-based shooter “Aftercharge” for Windows PC via Steam and Xbox One and Xbox One X through Xbox Live.

Through online cross-platform play between the Windows PC and Xbox One versions, and three-way cross-platform play with the upcoming Nintendo Switch version, players can put their skills to the test in electrifyingly fast-paced matches that pit invisible robots against an onslaught of invincible security enforcers, regardless of platform.

“I can’t begin to describe how excited all of us at Chainsawesome Games are to see Aftercharge at the finish line,” said Laurent Mercure, Communications Officer at Chainsawesome Games.

“Today, after close to three years, our passion project will finally be in the hands of gamers. We feel like Aftercharge is a breath of fresh air in the competitive shooter genre and we can’t wait to see players making it theirs and teaching us a lesson at our own game!”

Players can get acquainted with the unique mechanics of Aftercharge before jumping in by watching the all-new Invisible Robots 101 gameplay trailer. This crash course video focuses on the best tactics the offensive team — the invisible workinics robots — can use to overthrow their invulnerable, gun-toting oppressors.

Stranded and isolated for decades by the very corporation they were built to serve, the discarded robot workers — the workonics — are ready to exact revenge upon their

oppressors, the power-hungry Aftercharge Corporation. Harnessing their power of invisibility, they must work together to overthrow their invincible former masters.

Suited for multiple play styles, players can choose one of ten unique class-based characters, from either the workonics robots or deadly Aftercharge Corp. security enforcers.

Teams of three must either destroy or defend the coveted energy extractors scattered across the various maps available in Aftercharge — moving invisibly, creating distractions,

or going into full “seek and destroy” mode by unloading on foes with hard-hitting weaponry. Quick competitive rounds that require careful planning and strategy to achieve success will keep players’ blood pumping!

Key Features Include:

Unique Blend of Gameplay Mechanics: As the invisible robots, coordinate covert attacks, use unique abilities, and spend power charges to save fallen allies. As an enforcer,utilize diverse weapons and special attacks to mount a strong defense.

Bite-Size Competitive Matches: The teams are small, maps arena-sized, and the rounds short, yet the action is fast-paced and never stops.

Asymmetrical Characters: Choose from a character pool of ten classes — three per match on each side — each with widely different abilities and roles to vary your tactical style of play and your team’s overarching strategy.

Online Multiplayer and Matchmaking: Team up with players anywhere around the world and face-off against opponents of similar skill level thanks to Windows PC, Xbox One, and — launching soon — Nintendo Switch cross-platform play.

Aftercharge is available on Windows PC via Steam and on Xbox Live for Xbox One and Xbox One X starting today, for $19.99, and will release soon on Nintendo Switch — enabling

three-way cross-platform play between all supported platforms. In partnership with Microsoft, Aftercharge is now also available through the Xbox Game Pass subscription service for no additional charge.
