Dutch developer 2Awesome Studio has lifted the lid on an upcoming 2D platformer by the title of Aeon Drive. Revealed in an ‘alpha’ state within the trailer above, the sport hasn’t been confirmed for Swap simply but however its predecessor Dimension Drive launched on Nintendo’s console again in 2017 and given the sport’s pixel aesthetic and indie flavour, we might eat our headwear if this is not deliberate to your favorite hybrid handheld.
Set in the identical universe as shmup Dimension Drive (and to not be confused with Neon Drive), Aeon Drive is the developer’s second venture and is scheduled for launch someday later in 2020. You end up crash-landed in an alternate-universe model of Barcelona. Enjoying as house pilot Jackelyne, you may be teleporting concerning the streets of New Barna battling time itself as you acquire a bunch of MacGuffins as a way to save (and escape from) the planet.
With its pretty pixel artwork and steamy environments, it looks like 2Awesome is trying to mix the spirit of cinematic platforms with the exact controls of one thing extra twitchy and responsive. Listed below are a listing of the options from the official press launch in addition to some screenshots:
– Pace-running platformer mechanics.
– Top quality synthwave pixel artwork model
– Compete in distopian model of Barcelona in a twisted cyberpunk world.
– Superior scoring system that allows long run replayability.
– Actual-time problem adjustment on the arms of the participant.
– Compete towards pals by Discord integration.
– Streaming mode.
Whereas there is definitely no scarcity of beautiful platform video games on Swap of all flavours, there’s at all times room for extra and hopefully we’ll be seeing Aeon Drive confirmed for the system within the close to future. We fairly favored Dimension Drive, saying that it is “as rewarding and as it’s demanding” in our evaluation, so it’s going to be attention-grabbing to see what the developer can do in a distinct style.
