OAKLAND & AMSTERDAM – February 20th, 2019 – Good Shepherd Entertainment and independent developer SuperScarySnakes have announced that “Black Future ‘88“, the 2D synth-punk roguelike action shooter, will launch on Nintendo Switch™ in 2019 as a console exclusive.
Set in a grim alternate history where it’s always 1988, Black Future ‘88 puts players on a non-stop dungeon-crawling ascent against homicidal robots, cutthroats, bosses and more to exact revenge on the man who destroyed the world.
Black Future ‘88 is constantly evolving to try to kill you. As one of the last remaining survivors of nuclear cataclysm, you’ll climb a procedurally generated tower through a merciless onslaught of fire, lasers and steel.
The only way to kill your mark before your heart explodes is strategically choosing and combining dozens of unique buffs and curses.
Choose from several characters with a huge arsenal of weapons and powers as you shoot, slash and dash through anything standing between you and the top of the world.
Survive this nightmarish neon-lit retro dystopia alone or with a friend in two-player local co-op, then measure your mettle against other players by taking on special daily challenges to scale the global leaderboard.
Black Future ‘88 will also arrive on Windows PC later this year. For more information, visit www.BlackFuture88.com, and follow Good Shepherd Entertainment and SuperScarySnakes on Twitter @GoodShepherdEnt and @SuperScarySnake.
