The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild and Studio Aesthesia are releasing Breakpoint September 24, 2020 for Nintendo Switch and Steam. The game is rated ESRB E/PEGI 3 and will be available for $4.99USD.
Welcome to Breakpoint, a twin-stick slasher that provides all the hectic action of a bullet hell with the crunchy satisfaction of melee combat. Unlike other twin stick games, there are zero ranged attacks in Breakpoint. You have to control the battlefield with a variety of physical attacks. Slice, smash, and crush your way through waves of enemies to defeat the swarm. Move and groove your way through each weapon skill tree building up to powerful AOE attacks to truly level the playing field. Reach new levels of digital carnage with the upgradable lethality of your weapons – become the ultimate champion and claim the high score by trying different combos and patterns. You can also check out the highest scoring runs instantly from their position on the leaderboard, anywhere in the world! Keep an eye on how your weapons are doing because once they break, the explosion can be a major tactical advantage.
“With Breakpoint, we wanted to make a game that feels intensely satisfying to play. We love games with great moment-to-moment gameplay; we’re unabashedly influenced by titles with great game-feel like Nuclear Throne from Vlambeer, and we’re highly influenced by games like Geometry Wars or Devil Daggers, where the player can turn a tense predicament into a huge comeback with knowledge and skill. We really enjoy those moments, and we think players will too.” – Ed Lu from Studio Aesthesia
If you’re a big fan of the neon vaporwave aesthetic, take Breakpoint to a new level with the iCUE RGB integration from Corsair.
