GOOD SHEPHERD ENTERTAINMENT AND SUPERSCARYSNAKES’ BLACK FUTURE ‘88 COMING TO NINTENDO SWITCH AND STEAM NOVEMBER 21

Get revenge before the world kills you in this new synth-punk roguelike action shooter

OAKLAND, Calif., and AMSTERDAM – October 31, 2019 – 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.

The only way to kill your mark before your heart explodes is strategically choosing and combining dozens of unique guns, buffs and curses. Choose from several characters with a huge arsenal of weapons and powers as you shoot, slash and dash through anything standing between you and the top of the world.

Survive this nightmarish neon-lit retro dystopia alone or with a friend in two-player local co-op, then measure your mettle against other players by taking on special daily challenges to scale the global leaderboard. PC Players can also join a friend’s game online without needing to own a copy themselves, as Black Future ’88 will fully support Steam’s new Remote Play Together Feature at launch.
