After a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the project, French independent developer Hibernian Workshop today revealed that its rogue-lite 2D platform game Astral Ascent will be released for the Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, a launch window is a mystery. Hopefully, it will not take much time, but since the game but since it just got funds for keeping the development, we believe that it still is on early stage.
Astral Ascent is a rogue-lite 2D game with platform gameplay that happens in a world that mixes a modern world full of fantasy elements. You will pick any of 4 characters, each with its own personality, and will need to escape from the Garden. It’s an Astral Prison where twelve guardians have total domain. These bosses are powerful and terrific and carry the title of “Zodiacs”.
A beautiful roguelite game with pixel-artistic graphics
Fighting against fate alone isn’t an easy task. For that reason, Astral Ascent allows you to invite a friend for a local or online coop session. You can join your friends to fight the myriad of monsters and surpass obstacles through your path.
Besides the Nintendo hybrid console, Astral Ascent is also coming for the PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam. It has beautiful pixel-art graphics and the soundtrack, based on the video, seems to be awesome. Hopefully, it will not take much longer to reach the stores.
