Metroidvania Catmaze is coming to Switch

Cats, Slavic myths and RPG mechanics in a metroidvania, starting next week on Nintendo Switch, with the arrival of the game Catmaze.

Released in May 2018 on PC, this game is developed by one man, the creator of the Redblack Spade studio, Slava Gris. Not being a professional programmer, he learned the basics of development with the internet. It's a great achievement to see his game arrive on the Nintendo Switch and other consoles from September 9 with a port published by the Spaniards of Ratalaika Games ( Ten rooms, ten seconds ).
Play as the young witch Alesta in this metroidvania mixing RPG mechanics and a story based on Slavic myths. Accompanied by loyal cat companions, embark on an adventure that holds secrets in magical forests and dense thickets that harbor Kikimora (Russian goddess), boggarts (malicious dwarfs) and mermaids.

Here are the main features:
  • - Ancient tales come to life in a grand maze of gloomy swamps, Slavic villages and century-old forests.
  • - Help Alesta defeat ferocious mythical beasts with familiars that have served wizards since the dawn of time. Choose from a variety of pets with unique abilities.
  • - The world is full of characters whose destiny depends on you. Completion of side quests will determine how the adventure ends.
  • - Thanks to the essence of metroidvania, retrace your steps in search of new hidden paths and acquire new skills. The difficulty of the adventure is increased by the possibility of saving only at certain points.
  • - Fascinating boss fights that come from Slavic mythology
  • - RPG mechanics allowing you to customize Alesta's characteristics for a unique style of play.
For fans of metroidvania, it is perhaps one more independent nugget that has been added to the Switch catalog, for the modest sum of €9.99. To test it out, head to the eShop on September 9.
