A new Rhythm and Platform Game release - Skybolt Zack

Green Man Gaming has revealed a partnership with DEVS MUST DIE, French developer, to publish its first console release. The game is titled Skybolt Zack and is inspired by a variety of genres. The game will attract all the gamers worldwide this year with a new take on platform action, reflex testing and high speed.

Skybotl Zach is a fast-paced game

Initially, the game is based on the imagination of a student project from ISART Digital Paris, a video game college located in Paris. Drawing inspirations from classic Japanese rhythm games such as Pop’n Music and platformers, Skybolt Zack combines them like no other game before. The game looks like a frenetic mix of fast-paced gameplay with the marks of the best platformers from the 90s.

The lead Game Designer, Ugo Rosini shared that the first question they asked themselves when made this game was “Why hasn’t anyone made a game like this before?”

The game will come out this year

The developer and chairman of DEVS MUST DIE added, "I've always been a huge fan of arcade gaming and especially love rhythm games and platformers so I'd always wanted to add the satisfying feeling and peculiar flow of rhythm games to other genres."

The game will push your reflexes to the very limit – as a hero - Zack, you dash and punch your way through enemies. By using different moves such as rocket punch, charge attacks, and air dash, players will guide the character through more and more difficult levels.

Players can look forward to Skybolt Zack on PC and Nintendo.

Skybolt Zack is the first full release of DEVS MUST DIE and the first step of Green Man Gaming into the console market.  The developer made a promise to launch on Nintendo Switch and PC later this year.

David Clark of Green Man Gaming Publishing had nothing but kind words about the partnership: “The work that DEVS MUST DIE have done with Skybolt Zack in a relatively short time have impressed us tremendously. They are incorporating options for players which we’re not seeing in products from much larger, long-standing studios and we can’t wait to show more to the community at various events across the summer.”

We can look forward to Skybolt Zack later in 2019 for both versions on PC and Nintendo. For the latest information, please follow Skybolt Zack on Facebook and Twitter or heading over to the Green Man Gaming website.
