The Nintendo Switch hasn’t had too many early gory-type games. The Binding of Isaac could be one, for sure. But new eShop exclusive release Butcher makes no bones about its grotesque love-in for violence.
Blood-soaked love letter to cult classics now on the eShop
Sometimes games take themselves too seriously; other times they are utterly bizarre. Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition is most definitely the latter; even the game’s opening screen specifically says that “nothing you are about to see will make any sense”, yet that is probably one of the strongest things it has going for it. Set in a visually attractive, ancient Germanic future (because an ‘ancient future’ is a thing, of course), Lichtspeer is a game full of weird and wonderful enemies and an easy-to-understand gameplay concept. I’m sure there is one thing I’m forgetting, though… Oh yeah, it’s absolutely ruthless.
Double Speer edition confirmed for Switch and releases next week
