After almost 2 years, Good Shepherd and Developer SuperScarySnakes are finally ready to give Black Future ’88 concrete release date. This game is a synth-punk roguelike, with a dash of action platformer inserted into it. Black Future would be released on November 21 for PC and Digital Switch, with a physical release later in 2020. And if you are curious about what Synth-Punk would be like, the game’s new release trailer below would keep you covered.

The game is set in an alternate timeline in which it is always the neon age, 1988. In Black Future ’88 you would have to pass through dungeons, carve into hordes of cutthroats, homicidal robots, criminals and more in a roaring rampage of revenge – to kill the man who was responsible for this mess. As one of the few survivors of the nuclear war, you would have to climb a procedurally generated tower, crossing all the fire, laser and steels.

The only way to complete your quest before dying is to destroy all the enemies with all the weapons in your arsenal, which contains almost a hundred unique guns, skills, and magic. Pick your character out of a unique roster, each with their own power and arsenal – to hack and slash your way into the top of the world.

You can either try to brave this world alone or cooperate with a friend in local co-op mode. Furthermore, with the introduction of specific daily challenges and Steam Remote Play Together, the replayability of this title can not be questioned.
