MADRID – April 15, 2021.
The video game publisher Freedom Games and Spain-based indie games developer OverPowered Team, are today very pleased and happy to announce t hat their boss rush/Bullet Hell Shooter “Godstrike”, is now available for PC (via Steam) and the Nintendo Switch (via the Nintendo Eshop).
In a realm where remnants of a fallen divine power spend eternity fighting amongst one another, hope for the future is a thing of the past. Until the forgotten splinter of divinity, Talaal, emerges from obscurity with its Herald Yissia to stand against Talaal’s siblings and their eternal war.
Harness Talaal’s unfathomable powers and duel against twisted creatures and strange beings in multi-staged boss battles. Move quickly and strike true as the Herald Yissia, weaving through incoming enemy fire while blasting back and unleashing god-granted powers to alter the flow of each battle. Make every second of each battle count — because in Godstrike, time functions as Yissia’s health bar and currency.
With each hit taken, Yissia and Talaal lose health and valuable seconds off the clock, making trading blows a dangerous proposition. And to complicate matters, each skill used drains the clock and the duo’s health, adding additional depth to each battle’s ballet of bullets. Outfit the Herald with an ever-expanding roster of skills and abilities in the form of blessings and occult boons that expand their powers at a cost.
Overcome Talaal’s trials in the Campaign Mode, where new skill unlocks are earned by defeating other Heralds. Combine skills and abilities to create surprising synergies that turn Yissia into a whirling force of destruction. Fire off True Shot, a curving homing attack with the bullet-clearing Astral Shield to strike foes without consequence. Experiment with the Herald’s myriad abilities to defeat Talaal’s wicked siblings.
Master Heraldic powers in Arcade Mode where every ability is already unlocked or attempt to overcome the ultimate ordeal in a Challenge Mode with randomized boss orders and strange new blessings earned from each fight. Outplay the Godstrike community by taking on Daily Challenge runs with wickedly randomized modifiers or broadcast your journey to slay the Heralds on Twitch, with full-featured chat integration that allows viewers to impact the action by voting on status effects and more.
“Like Talaal and Yissia, we’ve been watching the clock with each passing day,” said Pablo Monroy, Art Director, OverPowered Team. “We are thrilled to bring Godstrike to Nintendo Switch and Steam today!”
Godstrike is now available on Nintendo Switch and Windows PC for $14.99 with an additional 20% launch discount on both platforms. The game includes full gamepad functionality as well as support for English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Korean, and Japanese language options.
