BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA: Friday, December 13, 2019 – Argentina-based independent game studio Team Güazú and Latin American publishing company Inca Games announced their stealth fighting party game, Shadow Brawlers, has launched for PC. The game is available on Steam starting today and will be available through December 20th at a special discount of 33% off the regular $14.99 price.

 

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.

 

Shadow Brawlers Features include:

·   Fast-paced stealth fighting gameplay

·   Strategic tactics such as color-change camouflage - hide in the shadows! And dead characters can use their souls to reveal a living character’s position

·   4 Multiplayer Play Modes including 2-Player vs. 2-Player and 4-Player Head-to-Head

·   A Single Player Challenge Mode with 26 unique levels

·   Crazy cast of characters, with various fighting styles

·   26 arenas in 6 different worlds and 15 unique skins

·   Reactive physics and environmental traps players on their toes.

·   6 Power-ups, 7 diverse weapons, and various play styles to add to the strategy

·   Instant replays capture all the action

·   Configurable game modes, and LOTS of eye-catching palettes

·   Controller compatibility

 

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. This year Shadow Brawlers has been showcased on the Indie MegaBooth at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco and PAX East in Boston, as well as the Indie Festival at DreamHack in Atlanta

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