After an online tease of something big being in the works, Super Rare Games, one of the world’s leading physical games publishers, just announced its brand new, all original publishing label, Super Rare Originals!
They’ll help indie game studios bring their titles to consoles & PC while reaching a market hungry for more incredible titles to play. Alongside the reveal, they already announced five upcoming games that will be wrapped in their warm mantle.
Grapple Dog is an exhilarating 2D pixel-art platformer from pixel art veteran Joseph Gribbin. Use your awesome grappling hook to clear tricky challenges as Pablo, the Grapple Dog! Sail across 6 colourful worlds with a crew of fearless adventurers to stop the robotic overlord Nul from destroying the world!
POST VOID is a challenging arcade-style first-person shooter with one objective: be fast. Move forward and keep your idol filled with liquid by getting kills. Each run will be a little bit different with procedurally generated levels. Keep your head full and reach the end; Kill what you can to see it mend; Get the high score or try again
The Gecko Gods
Explore a mysterious island as a tiny lizard. Complete ancient puzzles, effortlessly climb cliffs and eat bugs as you make your way across an island civilization lost to time. Climb anything, solve ancient contraptions and clamber through the crumbling ruins of a collapsed society – all as a little lizard on a mission to save their friend.
From the creator of Hell is Other Demons comes Lone Ruin, a spell-based roguelike twin-stick shooter with tons of replayability. Play as an explorer who seeks a mysterious ancient power in an old ruin, built atop a source of magical goop used by olden mages to power and transform themselves. Dive deeper and deeper, battling your way through twisted creatures, utilising your very own magic abilities to ultimately reach the bottom of the Lone Ruin.
Completely Stretchy is a short, first-person surreal and cartoony experience. Explore the vibrant Grombi Isles using your newfound floppy abilities such as your stretchy arm, sticky fingers, and more! Talk to the eccentric inhabitants and participate in their playful activities. You may even piece together the story of The Grombi Isles.
They have more titles in the pipeline but they are keeping those announcements for a later date when it will make more sense.
