Exophobia physical

PM Studios is planning a physical release for Exophobia on Switch, the company officially announced today. We’ll be seeing it on July 23, 2024.

Only a standard version is planned. However, each copy will include stickers and a standee as bonuses.

Exophobia is a retro inspired sci-fi FPS with modern metroidvania progression, mixing crisp colorful pixel art with intense electronic music for a unique stylish aesthetic!

You find yourself alone in a human spaceship taken over by hostile alien soldiers. Explore and fight your way to find the last human survivors, while you uncover piece by piece the backstory of the spaceship crew, leading to this high-stakes moment at the red planet. Evolve your alien weapon and shoot, slide, stun your enemies and more, in your journey to escape out alive!

Key Features

  • Experience FPS gameplay where quick reflexes and clever positioning are vital to survive. Learn each enemy behavior and use your weapon, movement options and surroundings to eliminate diverse groups of alien armies in fast paced action filled combat.
  • Discover a spaceship with multiple floors, each featuring a unique hostile environment. From worm infested laboratories to the mechanical inner workings of the spaceship engine, with plenty of secrets for the curious explorers!
  • Improve your weapon with a new ability every time you reach a specialized weapon laboratory. In metroidvania fashion, these abilities drastically empower you in combat and also unlock previously inaccessible areas required to progress.
  • Challenge yourself with unforgiving but fair difficulty in diverse battle situations with ruthless enemies possessing unique attack patterns, including menacing boss fights, each with their own defeating strategy. Don’t forget to save your progress in checkpoints!

We’re actually still waiting to see Exophobia on Switch in any form. It was last delayed to April 2022, but the launch didn’t happen and there’s been no news since.
