One of our favorite indie games near the Nintendo Switch launch was Graceful Explosion Machine from Vertex Pop. Now the team is busy working on a new game called Super Crush KO. It combines a brawler with a shoot’em up where you try to chain together attacks for big combos. The game features highly stylized visuals and will no doubt have a kicking soundtrack! Check out the first trailer as we begin the long wait until its release sometime in 2019.
Toronto indie developer Vertex Pop today announced Super Crush KO, a fast-paced mix between beat ‘em up and shoot ‘em up, coming to Nintendo Switch and Steam in 2019. The game was announced as part of this year’s Indie Megabooth titles at PAX West, and will be playable for the first time at the Seattle event.
Super Crush KO is a fast-paced brawler / shoot-em-up hybrid set in a vibrant, near-future city. Take control of a neon-wearing, robot-stomping, stylish-as-heck hero and save humanity from an AI apocalypse!
Punch your way through waves of bots, launch them into the air and blast them out of the sky, all chained together in massive, awesome combos.
