Traxmaster Software has announced that Exception will release on Nintendo Switch this summer.

After an old lady’s computer is taken over by Titan – a totalitarian virus that will destroy the operating system – you set out the vanquish the malicious invader before the system crashes.

The timed byte-sized levels rotate and move in this unique combat platformer, which challenges you to overcome enemies and obstacles as quickly as possible to score a place on the online leaderboards.

Whether you want to evade your enemies or leap straight into combat, you will enjoy two-dimensional action in a three-dimensional world – with the chance to uncover secret pathways and collectibles.

“As a hardcore NES nerd, I feel inspired by games like Ninja-Gaiden and Castlevania and feel like simplicity is the key to a great gaming experience,” explains Traxmaster Software founder Will Traxler.

“Exception has this old school vibe with a modern rotating twist that takes advantage of today’s 3D technology. It’s a game which is easy to pick up and play and will bring joy for a novice gamer just as much as it will for a professional speedrunner.”

Exception will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide this summer.
