Derby, 13th June 2021.
The indie games publisher/developer Playtonic Games and indie games developer Fabraz today announced with great delight and excitement that their exceptional 3D/2D platformer “Demon Turf” is coming to the PS5 and PS4 this year (2021).
When you think about zany, energetic platform games names like Crash Bandicoot and Ratchet & Clank probably spring to mind so it’s only natural that Fabraz; the team behind the exceptional Slime San; and Playtonic Friends should revealed over the weekend their next collaboration; Demon Turf; will be launching across the PlayStation family of consoles.
Demon Turf brings a truly fresh take on the platform genre with it’s hybrid 2D/3D art style, a world chock-full of humor and style, punky attitude and incredible focus on replayability & ever-evolving challenge.
But don’t take our word for it – go try it right now!
Every week, the team at Fabraz introduces a brand new “demo” of the game on Steam. Except it’s not a demo in the usual sense – Demon Turf Trials throws down a new challenge and presents a fresh leaderboard for players to climb. Make it to the top of the board and be immortalised with a personal portrait in the main game (plus a winners only, limited edition T-shirt)!
Trials also offers a full tutorial and two complete main levels of the full game. All free to play!
“When we first saw what Fabraz had created in Demon Turf we instantly thought it looked and felt like an old school Sony platformer with it’s humour and attitude” commented Gavin Price, CEO of Playtonic Games & Playtonic Friends
“so we knew that we had to do everything we could to help the team bring it to Sony platforms as well as all the other formats we’d already announced”
Demon Turf will launch on PC (Steam and Epic Games Store), Nintendo Switch and Xbox Series S/X AND PlayStation 4/ 5 in 2021 – check out the latest Demon Turf Trials challenge every Thursday and join in the conversation on the official channels
