Good Shepherd Entertainment and independent developer SuperScarySnakes have announced that Black Future ‘88, the 2D synth-punk roguelike action shooter that is constantly evolving to try to kill you, will launch digitally on Nintendo Switch and Windows PC via Steam on November 21, 2019. A special physical release of Black Future ’88 on the Nintendo Switch will be available in retail stores in 2020.
Set in a grim alternate history where it’s always 1988, Black Future ‘88 puts players on a non-stop dungeon-crawling ascent against homicidal robots, cutthroats, bosses and more to exact revenge on the man who destroyed the world. As one of the last remaining survivors of a nuclear cataclysm, you’ll climb a procedurally generated tower through a merciless onslaught of fire, lasers and steel.
