Developer Sunwolf Entertainment and publisher Fireshine Games have announced that their 2D action platformer Imp of the Sun is coming to Switch. The game is set to be releasing soon on the platform.
Imp of the Sun is a 2D action platformer that draws strongly from Peruvian culture. In it, you control a sun Imp called Nin who must restore the world by preventing an Eternal Eclipse using his unique fire-based abilities. The game is being crafted with fluid movement and exploration in mind, with satisfying combo-based combat being a particular focus.
Here’s some more information on what Imp of the Sun has to offer:
End the Eternal Eclipse
Stolen by the Four Keepers centuries ago and hidden in the distant corners of the Empire, life cannot go on without the Sun’s power. With its dying spark the Sun creates Nin, sending him on an adventure to bring back the light and restore balance to the Empire.
Use your Inner Fire
As a creature of the Sun, you have the power of its flame at your fingertips. Refine your skills in streamlined gameplay built for fluid movement and combo-based combat and discover new abilities to become more powerful as you venture across the Sun’s Empire to defeat the Four Keepers.
Explore, Collect and Learn
Our ancestors recorded their history through artefacts known as ‘Quipus’. Collect Quipus to unveil the story behind the Eternal Eclipse, and find unique hidden items based on real relics from the Andean cultures. Explore the Sun’s Empire and defeat unique, punishing bosses in any order you choose; each with their own complex mechanics and backstory.
A Stunning Peruvian-Inspired World
Discover the four corners of the Empire, from the bright peaks of the Andean mountains and dense Amazonian jungles, to dry, blistering deserts and the dark depths of the underworld. Every land and creature are lovingly hand-drawn and crafted with detail, celebrating the civilizations that once roamed and ruled Peru.
