on September 28, 2017 1:30 PM

Originally release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Wired Productions Vostok Inc. brings all the retro-bullet hell gameplay to the Nintendo Switch for some on-the-go twin-stick action in 2017.

In the game, players have been appointed the CEO of Vostok Inc. with the mindset to become rich. Players will pilot their own ships, while exploring over 40 planets across six different solar systems.

Upon arriving at a planet, players will begin colonizing and building factories to export the planet’s natural resources and sell it sell for profit. As the player gains funds they’ll be able to upgrade their ship, which includes adding new weapons and various augmentations. Players will find ways to increase their profits by recruiting capable managers, consultants, and executives met throughout the galaxy.

Andreas Firnigl, Managing Director and designer at Nosebleed Interactive commented. “Vostok Inc. is a game suited to Nintendo Switch, like nothing we’ve played so far. It’s the only console capable of satiating your wonton disregard for the wellbeing of others in search of intergalactic fortune.”

Leo Zullo, Managing Director, Wired Productions continued, “We loved Vostok Inc. from the moment we played it, and we’re delighted we have the chance to bring the game to a new audience. Nintendo Switch is the perfect home for Vostok Inc.

However, Vostok Inc. isn’t all about managing your ever increasing wallet. While traveling through space, players will encounter many twin-stick shooting dog fights against other ships reminiscent to retro games like Asteroids. 

Additionally, the game features 13 other mini-games that will remind players of retro titles and also allow  players to unlock special weapon upgrades for their ships.
