Madrid-based development studio Ikigai Gameworks has unveiled information surrounding its very first title Night & Day, a narrative-driven runner game coming to Switch early next year.
The game mixes environments in which day and night collide, containing your usual gameplay elements such as shortcuts, bosses, and mini-bosses, packed into a game system that seems simple at first glance. While the game's mechanics and controls are easy enough to pick up on their own, the game's difficulty is said to be tremendously high, with a devilish level of brutality aiming to please even the elite of runner game players.
Night & Day will test your reflexes with lane changes, jumps, and dashes, with a level of challenge supposedly reminiscent of titles like Celeste, Super Meat Boy and Runner3. You can check out a list of the game's features below.
Simultaneous control of the two main characters, both in single-player and two-player modes.
