Update: It has now been confirmed that Rez Plz, an upcoming puzzle platformer with an intriguing character resurrection mechanic, will launch on Switch on 15th July for $14.99. A brand new gameplay trailer has also been released today (above).
REZ PLZ is a pixel-art puzzle platformer with a new twist on co-op and single player gameplay. Join apprentice wizard brothers Arcan and Zeph as they fight the forces of Dark Arcanum armed with little more than the Resurrection Scroll, a tool they can use to bring each other back to life.
While traversing through platforming challenges and solving puzzles, the brothers will encounter dangerous monsters and traps that require one of them to die in order to advance. But thanks to the magical scroll, the brothers are able to resurrect each other from a multitude of one-hit deaths, ranging from being sliced in half, eaten by creatures, burned alive and more. While progressing through the game, the brothers will unlock new spells that grant them abilities to conquer the increasingly difficult challenges ahead.
