Today, publisher tinyBuild Games and developer Bread Team’s new game, Phantom Trigger, is available on PC and Nintendo Switch, accompanied by a new, official launch trailer.

As you may know, Bread Team is the studio that most recently put out Divide by Sheep.  Phantom Trigger is nothing like Divide by Sheep though; rather it is a hardcore neon slasher with RPG and roguelike elements.

Revealed only earlier this year, Phantom Trigger follows the story of Stan, a whitecollar middle-class worker living an ordinary life that is abruptly disrupted by a mysterious event.

The game notably features five surreal twisted neon-demonic worlds, a branching narrative that leads to four different endings, a robust weapon upgrade system, handcrafted story-driven levels mixed with roguelike-style dungeons, and is estimated to take roughly seven hours to complete.

As for its gameplay, Phantom Trigger is said to merge together the RPG and roguelike genres, featuring “a rich combo system,” and gameplay loops that include trapping, burning, and freezing enemies, herding groups around, and chaining together combos.

Phantom Trigger costs $14.99 USD. It’s currenlty unclear if the developer has any intentions to bring the title to other platforms, such as the PS4 and Xbox One.

Below, you can check out the new, aforementioned launch trailer.
