“A Dozen” Games Coming to Switch From OrangePixel

OrangePixel, a one-man game development ‘team,’ has announced plans to launch “a dozen” games on the Switch starting in September. Avid gamers may have encountered OrangePixel titles on other platforms before (non-Nintendo systems, but also including the 3DS), but this will be the first foray onto Switch.

The launch series will begin with Meganoid, a sci-fi themed procedurally-generated platformer. There hasn’t yet been details released about what other titles will be hitting the system, but it’s fair to guess that there will be a blend of older game re-releases and new additions to ongoing series. We’ll have to wait and see!

Here’s the feature list for this first release:

– Levels randomly generated on every game session, based on a set of templates, making the levels unique but instilling a sense of familiarity at the same time.
– Roguelike elements; Consumables, alternate routes, procedural generation, and many devices and gadgets add depth to the challenging gameplay.
– RPG elements; A lot of collectible items that will change the main character’s abilities to navigate the world. Find a jetpack to start flying around, find anti-gravity-boots to perform double jumps, and much more.
– Alternate paths to take. Find hidden bonus area’s to unlock, often providing you with a short-cut or very rare and powerful items to enhance your character.
– A hackable game world. Finding green key-cards allows you to modify how certain elements of the game act and respond to you. Stop rocket-launchers from working, make rockets fly less far, make destroyed robots drop extra lives.
– Unlock the build-in database with info on all the items and enemies you encounter to be better prepared on your next try.

Meganoid will be available on September 8th in the eShop.

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
