Thunderful Publishing and Dejima Games have announced Firegirl for Switch and other platforms.
Firegirl is described as an “action rescue platformer” where players take the role of a firefighter rescuing trapped civilians from deadly blazes. The game has an interesting “2.5D” style of pixel sprites in 3D environments. It is scheduled to launch sometime in Fall 2021 for Switch, PC and other consoles.
Check out the reveal trailer below, along with additional details via Thunderful Publishing:
In Firegirl you take on the role of a young fire rescue officer breathing new life into her rundown local fire station. Armed with your trusty axe and high-pressure fire hose that doubles as a jetpack, you’ll respond to emergency calls across a procedurally generated city.
When Firegirl arrives on the scene, she has three minutes to save all civilians caught in the blaze! Feats of bravery and other gameplay features can be leveraged to extend your rescue time, ensuring you complete your mission. Uncover the truth of why these fires have engulfed the city, in a mystery that goes all the way to the top!
Douse roaring flames, chop through obstacles, extinguish dastardly pyro-monsters, and use your hose to boost your jumps and reach high places to find all sorts of extra goodies. Hang out at the Firehouse between missions to upgrade your equipment, hire new staff, pay any bills you’ve accrued, and hear from your ever-growing fanbase after your heroic exploits. Working at a top fire rescue station isn’t a cake walk, and you’ll need all the help you can get to prepare for the next fires about to break out!
Firegirl fuses retro and modern sensibilities, mixing pixel art with 3D visuals and next-gen rendering techniques like dynamic lighting to create a wholly unique look and feel.
