Armor Games Studios and Glass Revolver have revealed that ITTA is in development for Nintendo Switch.
ITTA has been created from solo developer Jacob Williams’ own life experiences and invites players to fight for survival in a world where a theme of despair exists alongside hope, beauty, and compassion.
It is “a boss-rush style bullet hell title” that traces a young girl who is armed with her father’s revolver and guided by a ghostly cat.
You will have the chance to explore a strange world inhabited by powerful cosmic beings, searching for answers and peace.
That will challenge you to seek out and defeat the powerful beings that have been locked away beneath the world, which promises to push you to your limits.
“I started designing ITTA in late December 2016 while staying in a psych ward. I was at the lowest point of my life. ‘Itta’ is Japanese for ‘gone’. It was to be a bleak, depressing game, with no hint of levity or hope,” Williams explains.
“Then, near the end of my stay, an older woman around 60 who had been there for the better part of a year approached me and gave me a goodbye present – a papercraft she had made earlier that day.
“As a reminder to myself I made her papercraft a prominent symbol in the game, dotted around the world. And as my outlook on life slowly began to change, so too did the game: I didn’t want ITTA to be devoid of light any more.”
ITTA will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2020.
