Where do we even start? Indie publisher Fantastico Studio has revealed that Rainbows, toilets & unicorns, a bullet hell shoot 'em up, is coming to Switch next week.
Described by its developers as "the most irreverent shooter ever", Rainbows, toilets & unicorns tasks players with making their way through enemy waves, eventually taking on 15 bosses across five crazy worlds. Amazingly, there is actually a plot behind this madness:
Fed up with the world and exhausted by the hot weather – thank you climate change! – you resort to your last hope: your favourite unicorn flavoured ice cream (the recipe? A mystery wrapped in a riddle, inside an enigma). All of a sudden, you are struck by the urge to visit a bathroom (is the ice cream involved? We’ll never know), and the only option to avoid pooping yourself is the chemical toilet down the street. Thus began a bad trip in which you will have to face your greatest fears in a fight to the last splash.
So not exactly The Legend of Zelda-style story writing, then, but exciting all the same.
We also have a feature list and a selection of screenshots for you to check out:
- Fast-paced gameplay with varied weird enemies
