Thorium Entertainment has announced that it is bringing its action-adventure Ragulike Undermini to the Nintendo Switch next month.
The game has already been downloaded over 600,000 times on Steam and Xbox Game Pass, and puts you in the role of a “silly farmer” who will stop at nothing to find his fortune in a dark and dangerous mine.
This is an interesting premise, and one that is made all the more appealing by the fact that the creators of Undermine apparently pay a small debt to Classic 2D Zelda Series, at least in terms of presentation.
As you can see in the trailer, some characters sport Link-style outfits, performing a familiar pose while collecting important items, blowing up walls with bombs, and even a Falling down the hole sport a similar animation. It’s all done with the tongue Firmly In the cheek, of course, and the presentation in general looks fantastic. The plunder gameplay and the raguelike elements make it stand out from Nintendo’s famous series, even though it shares some technical and visual similarities.
Thorium Entertainment founder Derek Johnson said about this news:
“Ever since we released our first early access version, the question our fans were asking was ‘When is the switch coming?’ Releasing a game on a Nintendo platform is a dream come true, and we look forward to joining new fans this February! “
Underman currently holds a 9/10 rating on Steam, which certainly bites well. Our friends at Eurogamer joined hands with the Steam version and described it as “a distilled version of Zelda on the SNES” … if Zelda were limited to a dungeon. It will launch on Switch on Thursday, February 11, and will cost $ 19.99.
Here is PR:
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – January 28, 2021 – Developer Thorium Entertainment’s mystery-action action-adventure RaguLike Brigade released a release on Nintendo Switch on Thursday, February 16, after which more than 600,000 players enjoyed the game. Via Steam and Xbox Game Pass.
Take control of a foolish farmer when he turns into a mysterious mine in search of untold riches, a pickaxe with hands and bravery in his heart. Fight for life against the dangers waiting in the depths of darkness. Venture through the lowest until the mango has completed its doom, then send the next unfortunate soul to retrieve its gear and plunge into the further caves.
Use bombs to blow up walls and rocks to find the secret passage, collect precious gold before claiming the hideous pillar, and rescue potential allies within the mine. The battle against the crooked dungeon defies all the way to the end of every level where the bosses filling the room stand between the intrepid miner and their objective.
Get creative with each new run, potions with strict ability-granting relics, magical effects, treasure, and other items, hopefully the next run runs more smoothly than the previous. It is difficult for the later dynasty to hoard gold or spend hard earned cash on useful items or helpful upgrades.
Master the mines, then look for new challenges in true Ragulike Otherin starting anew without any upgrades, for an almost endless iteration. Following five major content updates during Early Access, Thorium will continue to expand the operation of the mine with upcoming launch-launch updates on all platforms in the coming months.
