A new pixel art adventure puzzle-platformer is on its way to the Nintendo Switch next year!
Publisher Graffiti Games and developer Long Neck Games’ REZ PLZ has been confirmed coming to the hybrid platform, as well, along with a release on other platforms.
A playable demo will be available during the PAX West 2019 event which will be held at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, from August 30 to September 2.
Check out the trailer and game details below:
REZ PLZ is a pixel art puzzle platformer where one-to-two players control two wizard brothers, Arcan and Zeph, who possess the power of resurrection. While traversing through platforming challenges and solving puzzles, players will encounter dangerous monsters and traps that require them to KILL one of the wizard brothers to advance. But thanks to a magical scroll, the brothers are able to resurrect each other from a multitude of one-hit deaths, ranging from being sliced in half, eaten by creatures, burned alive and more. As players progress, they will unlock new spells that grant them abilities to conquer the increasingly difficult challenges ahead.
About This Game
In the five evil wizard’s keeps of the Dark Arcanum, death and dismemberment isn’t just a consequence – it’s a part of the adventure! Control two wizard brothers, in single-player or local co-op, as they do their very best (bless‘em) to defeat the evil of this world.
Featuring traditional 2D platforming as well as complex puzzles in which sacrificing one of the brothers is often the only way to proceed, REZ PLZ harks back to the good old days of one-hit kills and no health bars. Fortunately, the brothers know the spell for resurrection. It’s just a shame it’s the only spell they know…
The brothers must rely on cunning, skill, and each other to overcome the Dark Arcanum’s many challenges.
Who knows… maybe they’ll learn something along the way? There’s always hope…
