After seeing a release on Nintendo Switch earlier this year, Sunnyside Games and Noodlecake Studios have launched Towaga: Among Shadows on PC via Steam. The game is available for $14.99 USD/£11.39 GBP/€12.49. The game is also expected to release on PS4 later this year.
Players take on the role of Chimù who needs to harness the power of light to save his island from the nefarious Metnal the Voidmonger and his Legion of Darkness.
Towaga: Among Shadows plays out in a unique take on the twin-stick shooter genre where ground-based combat sees you planted in a fixed position, aiming an endless beam of light to destroy oncoming enemies. Once in your in the skies, you’ll have full control over Chimu as you fly between opponents.
Explore an enchanted land with graphics and cinematics inspired by animation great Genndy Tartakovsky, all the while enjoying an immersive soundtrack accompanying your every move in this mystical world where defeat is simply not an option.
The game features more than 70 unique levels where players can unlock new spells, gear, outfits and lore diaries. AS you progress through the game, you’ll earn XP which will increase your damage, magic and expand your HP.
Towaga: Among Shadows includes a handful of single-player game modes: Story Mode, Trial challenges, and Endless Mode. With over 60 unlockables, 50 Achievements, and online leaderboards.
