Apt Games have revealed that TERROR SQUID is in development for Nintendo Switch.
This easy-to-understand but difficult to master arcade game promises to be a “score-attack synth nightmare,” in which every enemy projectile is emitted by you.
Set around a doomed planet you are the TERROR SQUID, a cosmic chaos entity that spins around the world unloading hazardous inky projectiles to create an “unholy vector graphics apocalypse.”
You must weave through a bullet hell of your own making, surviving as long as possible without getting hit by your own projectiles. Survive for long enough and you can unleash a “primordial blast of dark energy” that detonates your projectiles in chain reactions.
“It’s such a simple premise, but we fine-tuned it to have plenty of tactical, score-chasing depth, and playthroughs are brief and tense enough to feel like an epic odyssey in the span of a minute,” explains TERROR SQUID creative director Syver Lauritzsen. “The true terror is how much time you’ll procrastinate on work playing the damn thing!”
TERROR SQUID will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Spring 2020.
