October 30th 2018 – 2Awesome Studio is proud to announce its first title as indie publisher with the launch of The Bug Butcher on Nintendo Switch™ on November 8th, with a 10% pre-order discount starting on November 1st!
In partnership with the equally awesome Awfully Nice Studios (they worked on The Avengers and also Blizzard Entertainment, it doesn’t get better than that) , 2Awesome Studio is proud to bring The Bug Butcher to the Nintendo Switch™. Inspired by Super Pang (that’s Super Buster Bros. for you North American folks), The Bug Butcher is a relentless shoot-’em-up with a simple rule; you can only fire straight up. Good thing your helmet comes with a visor!
The Bug Butcher is an action-packed 2D side scrolling shoot em up game where peril comes from above. So in a nutshell, pest control with machine guns in space. Something has gone terribly wrong and the super secret science facility has been infested with nasty bugs which really, really like the poor scientists there (like them for breakfast that is). You are Harry, the best bug exterminator in the galaxy and those scientists better have insurance to cover this because your services aren’t cheap!
Exterminate increasingly crazier waves of bouncing bugs through 30 levels, blasting them into smaller and smaller chunks that somehow keep on bouncing around with beautifully predictable patterns.Customize your gear and upgrade your weapons for those situations when a swarm of guided missiles may come in handy.
Bring in a friend and play in endless co-op mode! Nothing is a better declaration of friendship than burning bugs together with a well targeted superlaser (Magnifying glass? Ants? Childhood memories are the best!). And when that competitive side kicks in smash those very same friends on the online leaderboards! Finally, for the completionists beat each level racking up your combo to earn all the game stars!
And obviously all this comes to the Nintendo Switch™ in the best possible way at an eye-popping razor sharp 1080p resolution with lightning fast 60 FPS. Playable in docked, handheld, tabletop, your sofa and your bed! It also comes with two player support on a single Nintendo Switch™ . Want to feel even more in control? Nintendo Switch™ Pro controller is also supported.
