The Austin-based (Texas, the US) indie games publisher Devolver Digital and the London-based (the UK) indie games developer Nerial, today announced with great delight and excitement that their card-themed adventure game “Card Shark” (which is an 18th Century European tale of deception) is coming to PC (via Steam) and the Nintendo Switch (via the Nintendo Eshop) on June 2nd, 2022.
Meanwhile, Doinksoft (Devolver Bootleg) have teamed up with the loose-cannon publisher for the stunning reveal of “Gunbrella“; a noir-punk action-adventure set in a world dependent on a rapidly diminishing natural resource. Kinda like real life but with more rainproof weaponry. Gunbrella will glide onto PC and Nintendo Switch in 2023.
Players take the role of a gruff woodsman on a quest for revenge, armed with the mysterious Gunbrella: a firearm that doubles as an umbrella. His investigation becomes entangled with the inner workings of ghouls and gangsters, cops and cutlists, and the fallout of corporate exploitation.
Engage in side-scrolling action combat while exploring a diverse assortment of locations and interrogating bizarre characters. Use the Gunbrella to glide, swing, dash, and dive, and gather scrap and spare parts to trade for different munitions and upgrades. Investigate cult kidnappings and trash gangs, and uncover the mysteries of the supernatural as wraiths and monstrosities materialise in places where blood has been shed…
