FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

PAX EAST – BOSTON and BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA: Tuesday, March 26, 2019 – Argentina-based independent game studio Team Güazú and Latin American publishing company Inca Games today announced their stealth fighting party game, Shadow Brawlers, has entered Early Access on Steam. This coincides with the PAX East show in Boston, where the game is being featured as part of the Indie MEGABOOTH.

 

A subset of game’s final play modes and features, Shadow Brawlers Early Access is available today for the Early Access price $14.99 USD, with an additional 33% limited time discount. The full version of Shadow Brawlers is slated for release later this year on PC and additional console platforms.

 

Shadow Brawlers is a local multiplayer party or “couch” game in which players control cute, agile ninjas that hide in the shadows. Players surprise their opponents by appearing suddenly from the background, attacking, and then disappearing in this fast-paced award-winning brawler. The game features elements from the classic platformer genre mixed with the chaos of modern party games; a combination that results in players throwing elbows in acts of undisputed sportsmanship.

 

With beautiful, lavish animations, a super stylistic color-blocked design, and hyper-fast gameplay that tests players’ reflexes, Shadow Brawlers has been a darling of the indie game circuit. The game was selected as part of last fall’s Night Games at IndieCade, and was a finalist for the Indie Prize at Casual Connect USA. It was named Best Game of Show by the jury at EVA 2017 in Buenos Aires. Shadow Brawlers was most recently showcased on the Indie MEGABOOTH at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

 

Shadow Brawlers Features include:

·         Fast-paced stealth fighting gameplay

·        5 Play Modes including Single Player, 2-Player vs. 2-Player and 4-Player Head-to-Head

·        Environmental traps to keep players on their toes.

·        Strategic tactics such as color-change camouflage; dead characters can use their souls toreveal a living character’s position.

·         Multiple weapons and play styles to add to the strategy

·         Controller compatibility

Shadow Brawlers Early Access is available today on the game’s Steam page. For additional information, please visit www.shadowbrawlers.com.
