Lichthund’s action arcade lightspeer-tossing simulator will launch on Steam and PS4 on September 27th. The PS Vita version will follow a month later.
Lichtspeer is a mixture of pulp science fiction, German sci-fi comics, VHS retro cassettes, Nordic mythology and space-age fantasy. In the actual game, you play as a guy or a girl from a Germanic spacetime with the mission to kill and die for the amusement of the evil Lichtgods, armed only with your mighty lightspear.
The basic gameplay is simple, yet challenging and rewarding at the same time – players don’t actually move and the single way to interact with the game is with the use of their weapon, a spear made of light. It’s the environment that constantly changes – literally every stage of the game is different in its level design, its puzzles and its enemy types. Fighting gigantic bosses makes the level progression engaging and interesting, and killing enemies with style and finesse will be rewarded by unlocking mighty power-ups and upgrades.
