Publisher Perp Games and developer Saona Studios will release 2D action roguelite hack-and-slash game Death or Treat for consoles and PC via Steam this spring, the companies announced. Specific consoles were not announced. A special physical release is also planned.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
You will play as Scary, the owner of Ghost Mart, leader in manufacturing candies for Halloween.
Discover a huge world with lots of rooms, explore new maps in every run while you try to survive the hordes of enemies. It’s not an easy task, every world is even more tricky than the other. Starting with Darkchat, the Storyum lab, Riptok, the most used app sede, Deviltube, leaders distributing storyum, and the last but not least FaceBoo!, the ultimate epic frontier.
Will you overcome the challenge and dare to defeat Clark Fackerberg?
Choose Your Combat Style
Combat is one of the fundamental pillars of Death or Treat. Choose your favorite weapon style (fast, heavy or ranged) and face a real horde of enemies in the purest hack’n slash style: fly through the air and attack the crowd with force, move nimbly and look for their weak point.
Collect valuable hidden treasures to unlock new terrifying weapons and spooky skills that will help you in your journey.
Home, Sweet Home: HallowTown
Meet the spooky but friendly neighbours of HallowTown, they are a coffin of surprises!
Each one of the stores that you will find in HallowTown can provide different profit for your enterprise. You can create new weapons at Frank’s Forge, or buy healing potions at DetoxBucks. Our vampire shopkeeper, Joe Bite Them, will help you get new empty slots for your inventory, and the Pumpkin guys will teach you how to craft magic spells. Finally, go to Pumpkin to trade your ingredients for more candies!
A Whole Handpainted World to Explore
Death or Treat is an action hack-and-slash roguelite 2D with traditional animations and handpainted environments.
We work with traditional illustrators and animators, each of them brings their best to create HallowTown in a distinctive style. Each world has its unique look and vibes, so make sure to enjoy every run!
“We put so much effort to create a dynamic combat system where you can choose between a bunch of weapons, each one with a different mechanic,” said Saona Studios CEO Juan Jose Olivares in a press release. “There are also skills and passives that will help you defeat hordes of enemies, which makes every run a unique journey. Working with Perp is a great opportunity to polish and share Death or Treat with the world.”
Perp Games CEO Rob Edwards added, “Death or Treat is a stunning looking game that has so much detail and depth to the gameplay. With double jump and dash right from the start, you are thrown straight into a frantic adventure, fighting multiple enemies right from the off. Fans of games like Hollow Knight and Ori and the Blind Forest are going to adore this.”
