Steamburg Out NOW On Switch

 

 

San Francisco, CA, November 22nd, in the year of our Lord 2018: Indie game publisher Monster Couch is proud to announce the worldwide release of Steamburg, available today on the Nintendo® Switch. Produced by Steampunk-specialists, Telehorse, Steamburg is an award-winning puzzle adventure exploration game, offering a combination of unique gameplay and compelling steampunk visuals. The game was recently awarded Best Upcoming Game @ IMGA in San Francisco, March 2017.

Steamburg challenges you to play the role of Professor Vincent Cornelius Moore. Unarmed, you must fight the robots that invaded the city of Steamburg. Your only available weapon are small electro-bombs that lure the robots and stall their progress, but only temporarily. With clever strategy you may trick the robots chasing you to collide with a Tesla coil, ultimately destroying them. While the premise of the gameplay sounds simple, it quickly becomes insanely addictive as robots appear in larger numbers and at a much quicker pace!

Narrative elements are of great importance. In 2016, Steamburg won an award for Best Storytelling at White Nights in Helsinki. Dialogues reveal Vincent to be a scientist responsible for testing a new weapon in Steamburg. At the same time, he is searching for his fiancée who was reported to be in Steamburg when the robots attacked. Some narrative elements are connected directly with the gameplay. Players can also find many letters and photos and discover the love story of Vincent and his fiancée.

KEY FEATURES
• 32 atmospheric Steampunk levels
• Hidden locations to discover
• Dozens of narrative objects to be explored
• Original score by Silver Rocket
• Outstanding American and British voice actors including Bruce Glover (known for Diamonds Are Forever and Chinatown)
