Earlier this month, Crunching Koalas announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: tERRORbane, a bug-riddled RPG developed by BitNine Studios. If the announcement trailer wasn’t enough for you, and you want to see more of the game in action, you’re in luck! The developers have uploaded the full recording of their Steam Next Fest 2021 on YouTube.
Here’s the recording, offering about 1h of gameplay:
tERRORbane (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet.
A passion project and a cheeky love letter to iconic games of several generations, tERRORbane tears down the 4th wall and offers a unique take on the process of video game development. The game Developer’s snarky commentary will guide the player through exploration of unknown landscapes, turn-based fights and classic mechanics turned upside down.
Choose your own g̷̻͘l̴̗͐í̷̧ẗ̴̟c̵̎͜ḫ̶́ adventure! In tERRORbane the player explores scores of wacky errors and witty glitches, sprinkled with a dash of video game culture references. Help (or challenge) the Developer in his quest to fix his own game and collect all the bugs through multiple, unique playthroughs to become the bane of errors!
At first sight, a familiar, classic jRPG – tERRORbane offers more than exploration of quaint towns and spooky dungeons. Behind every corner and under each stone lies a callback to gaming history’s greats or an unexpected twist on classic mechanics. Hunting down every silly and quirky bug in the game will require a keen eye and several playthroughs, but each one will reward the player with a right laugh, or at the very least a nostalgic smirk.
