The aptly named Marvelous Europe have sent through a lovely email asking if we would consider telling you lot their retro-styled 2D sci-fi platformer Exile’s End is out today. Well it is, and here is the launch trailer.
Exile’s End is a dark and futuristic 2D side-scroller offering adventure-style puzzles, tightly-controlled platforming, and dangerous extraterrestrials. The game was developed as an homage to early ’90s action-adventure PC games, drawing heavy gameplay inspiration from classics of the genre as well as thematic influence from ’80s sci-fi films and anime. Boasting uniquely stylised cutscenes, multiple endings, and an atmospheric soundtrack by Keiji Yamagishi of Ninja Gaiden and Tecmo Super Bowl fame, Exile’s End will have players investigate a massive, interconnected alien world and experience a story filled with ancient riddles and modern-day hubris.
