Another new release for Vita has been announced! This time it’s “Lichtspeer” from German studio Lichthund.
You can find the full press release in the following PS Blog entry:
Hello and welcome everyone, I’m Bartek, half of a mini indie studio called Lichthund. We’re here to announce that our game, Lichtspeer, will be available on PS4 and PS Vita in the coming weeks.
The titular Lichtspeer is an object of tremendous power bestowed upon the player by the mighty Lichtgods. Think of it as a lightsaber turned into a spear. Your objective? Survive with style and expand your powers to fight for the glory and amusement of the almighty gods.
With Lichtspeer’s one-of-a-kind theme, we’re hoping to celebrate the wonderful mix of germanic culture. Nordic mythology? Check. German adjectives? We have those. Penguin Vikings? Yup, they’re here. Great electronic music? Definitely.
The campaign in Lichtspeer will take you from mountain forests through ancient deserts and ruins of futuristic cities, battling gargantuan bosses (each with its own set of challenges) and hordes of their underlings: Elegant Wurst Zombies, Evil Spacedwarfs, Skater Walruses, Mechaturtles, to name a few. And I really mean a few.
Hopefully most of them will bring a smile to your face before murdering you in cold blood, and oh, they will murder you — Lichtspeer is not an easy game. The throwing mechanic might seem simple at first, but with the speed of the game, the number of different enemies, and ever-changing level design, you will be cursing a lot. That being said, we put extra effort into making Lichtspeer hard, but not frustrating — making your progress satisfying and fun.
For all the enemies you kill you’ll get points which you will be able to spend between missions to make your hero more powerful. Turn your spear into a giant hammer, summon a protective wall, or kill off all your enemies with a literal rain of spears. Sounds pretty fun, right?
Did I mention we also have a Rage Quit Mode in case you enjoy crying while playing games? There’s also a New Game Plus mode in case you wanted to get back to that very first flying enemy that always killed you and unleash all your powers on him.
All this action and mayhem will be accompanied by a fantastic soundtrack from Marcin Sonnenberg — an extremely talented Polish producer.
Anyway, we’re really psyched that Lichtspeer is coming to PS4 and PS Vita — if you had any questions about the game please type them in the comments or just reach out to us on our Facebook or Twitter. Thanks for your attention!
Hooray for the Console with No Games!
