Kongregate is announcing a series of limited-time PC exclusive titles coming to its Kartridge game platform. Kartridge has partnered with Armor Games Studios, Analgesic Productions, Damp Gnat, and Cuddle Monster Games to publish titles starting in the second quarter.
The first batch of games include Anodyne 2: Return to Dust, Hell is Other Demons, and Swords & Souls: Neverseen. Also, Kongregate is partnering with Damp Gnat to announce the sequel to the indie hit Wonderputt.
“We’re excited and honored to be the launch partner for these very talented developers and their fantastic games,” said Anthony Pecorella, the director of Kartridge content, in a statement. “With nods both to our Flash game roots and our indie origins, these games are perfect matches for Kartridge.”
Anodyne 2 is the sequel to the critically-acclaimed role-playing game, and this time players will explore its surreal world in both two and three dimensions. Hell is Other Demons is a challenging action-platformer whose symphony of bullets is as mesmerizing as it is deadly. Turn-based RPG Swords & Souls: Neverseen is a sequel to the highest-rated game on both Kongregate.com and ArmorGames.com.
And the untitled Wonderputt sequel is a mind-bending minigolf adventure from Reece Millidge.
Anodyne 2: Return to Dust
You play as Nova, the Nano Cleaner, who is tasked with collecting dangerous Nano Dust growing throughout New Theland, which then must be returned for recycling to a mysterious entity, only known as the Center. Walk or ride across a lush, moody world in full 3D. Discover strange characters and places. Shrink into characters and collect Nano Dust through 2D, Zelda-like gameplay, reminiscent of the original Anodyne.
Developed by Analgesic Productions, Anodyne 2: Return to Dust is coming to Kartridge in Q2 2019.
Hell is Other Demons
Jump into the hooves of a demon out to kill a bunch of other demons as you progress through an extensive campaign and dominate wonderfully over-the-top bosses. This bullet hell platformer is accentuated by lightning-fast action and big pixels.
It has a heavy synthwave soundtrack composed by Rémi Gallego, of The Algorithm, and retro sound effects by Magnus Pålsson, composer of the VVVVVV OST.
Developed by Cuddle Monster Games and published by Kongregate, Hell is Other Demons is coming to Kartridge and Nintendo Switch in Q2 2019.
Swords & Souls: Neverseen
It’s your hero. Your legend. Craft your own unique hero and go out into the dangerous world of Neverseen, where great riches, mysterious secrets, and powerful treasures await you, if you can defeat the monsters standing in your way.
The follow-up to the browser-game hit blends combat where you must block, dodge, and attack in real-time with classic RPG mechanics and unique minigames. Developed by SoulGame Studio and published by Armor Games Studios, Swords & Souls: Neverseen is coming to Kartridge in Q2 2019.
Developed by Damp Gnat, this sequel to Wonderputt is in active development and will be coming exclusively to PC on Kartridge. It is a shape-shifting minigolf adventure.
