Good Shepherd Entertainment and independent developer SuperScarySnakes have announced that Black Future ‘88 will launch digitally on Nintendo Switch and Windows PC via Steam on 21st November, 2019. The game is described as a 2D synth-punk roguelike action shooter that is constantly evolving to try to kill you. A special physical release of Black Future ’88 on the Nintendo Switch will be available in retail stores in 2020.

Black Future ‘88 is set in a grim alternate history where it’s always 1988. Players are put 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.

Watch the Black Future `88 release date trailer below:

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.

Players can attempt to survive this nightmarish neon-lit retro dystopia alone or with a friend in two-player local co-op. Global leaderbords will then let you measure your mettle against other players by taking on special daily challenges. 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.
