Come by Booth #114 at PAX West to Experience 4 of Our Upcoming Titles
LONDON, UK – 19 August 2016 – We’re super happy to announce that we’ll be coming to PAX for the second time this year, and this time to the west! We have 4 new titles in the arsenal to incite rapture this year at Penny Arcade Expo West in Seattle! From 2-5 September, we welcome PAX West attendees to navigate their way over to our booth at #114 in the North Hall on the main exhibit floor, and bask in the PAX debut of four awesome titles pulled straight from the upcoming lineup. The games to be featured are: Conga Master, the ultimate dance-off experience; 88 Heroes, a game filled with an insane selection of crazy playable characters; Brut@l, a modern-take on the classic ASCII dungeon crawler on PC; and Earth’s Dawn, a frenetic side-scrolling action-brawler with eye-popping visuals.
PAX West gamers can get hands-on with the following titles at Rising Star Games’ Booth #114:
Conga Master – Undercoders (Platforms: PC, Consoles):
Travelling through different nightclub locales during a night to remember, players will find all manner of dancers with different styles and personalities. And with great conga comes great responsibility – the longer the conga, the harder it will be to maintain momentum and avoid disco downers, like the crotchety custodians or the pigs in disguise who will try to stink up your party vibe. Conga Master features extensive local co-op and competitive multiplayer modes for up to four players, as well as a crazy single-player campaign.
88 Heroes – Bitmap Bureau (Platforms: PC, consoles):
From the creators of Super House of Dead Ninjas, 88 Heroes is a chaotic 2D platformer that is as fun to watch as it is to play, where each level completed or untimely death brings a new uniquely skilled hero into the action. With just 88 minutes to complete all 88 levels, you’ll need every one of the 88 heroes to stop the dastardly Dr. H8 destroying the Earth! Are you up to the challenge?
Brut@l – Stormcloud Games (Platform: PC):
Brut@l is a modern re-imagining of the classic ASCII dungeon crawler with roguelike elements. Players choose their hero: Ranger, Mage, Warrior or Amazon then descend into a procedurally generated world constructed entirely from ASCII. With weapon crafting, potion brewing and an onslaught of enemies to face, it is guaranteed to be Brut@l.
Earth’s Dawn – OneorEight (Platforms: Consoles, PC):
After decades of peace, the Earth was decimated by an invasion from an alien race known to humans as E.B.E. Ahead of the impending annihilation a breakthrough was made – the E.B.E. was susceptible to damage by weaponry designed using its very own technology. The power to fight back was now in the hands of an elite fighting force and in Earth’s Dawn, players will experience a huge amount of depth with a layered combat system that will appeal to both rookies and hardened players.
We can’t wait to see everybody there!
