Today, developer Super Awesome Hyper Dimensional Mega Team and publisher Adult Swim Games action platformer Rise & Shine — which is set to release January 13th on Xbox One and PC — is available to preorder for $14.99 USD on the Xbox One starting today.
Never heard of Rise & Shine? No problem, here’s an overview from the developer itself:
Combining elements of arcade shooters, bullet hells, and puzzle-platformers, Rise & Shine is a skill-testing tribute to everything we love about video games, injected with just the right amount of humor.
To save Gamearth, Rise must work closely with his new partner Shine, whose add-ons, special bullets, and loud-mouthing are key to getting them both safely across each meticulously hand-drawn level. Pack your strategy and timing enhancing gear, and get ready to repel the Nexgen invaders to bring the fun back to Gamearth!
Personally, I may have passed on Rise & Shine if it didn’t have Adult Swim Games publishing behind it. But mostly everything the new publisher has been involved with — like Headlander and Small Radios Big Television — I’ve really enjoyed, and so I think come the 13th I will take a leap of faith and download this. The art style just also looks really good. And I’m a sucker for a good art style.
A new trailer to accompany the preorder announcement was also released — you can check it out below:
