Headup Games announces Earth Atlantis, coming to Nintendo Switch and playable at PAX West

From Press Release:

Headup Games and Pixel Perfex announce Earth Atlantis, coming this fall. The new action-filled title for Nintendo Switch is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a climate shift has struck the earth and marked civilization’s downfall. With most of the land now being completely flooded, life is only possible beneath the ocean.

Mankind’s main capitals are destroyed and lay at the bottom of the sea as ruins of steel and stone. The machines have found their place in this new environment and now roam the seas as terrifying hybrids of creatures and machines.

Earth Atlantis features the style of old sketches, reminiscing a time, where sea exploration commenced and the sea was believed to be inhabited by fantastic as well as dangerous creatures. Now, once again, the world has to be discovered. Board one of four individual submarines, each with different advantages and weaponry. Hunt down huge bosses in an intense retro style side-scrolling shooter. Rediscover humankind’s sunken world.

Dive now into the new ancient world of Earth Atlantis. If you’re at PAX, take the chance and play it at the Nintendo booth now.
