Digerati has another one for us – a run ‘n’ gun action game known as Skelly Selest, which has a release date on May 21 (May 22 in EU). Here’s the rundown:
Indie publisher Digerati and developer Caiysware are excited to announce that the fast-paced slash ‘n’ dash and run ‘n’ gun action of Skelly Selest is headed to Nintendo Switch™, Playstation 4, and Xbox One later this month. The PS4 release will be 21/22 May (NA/EU respectively), while the game will be available for both Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on 24 May.
Skelly Selest places players in the battle-hardened bone shoes of a Heavenly Keeper, in a relentless score-attack challenge against waves of Hellion forces.
“Skelly Selest was only intended as a small game jam but the release reaction really blew me away,” says developer Anthony Case. “On Steam it quickly racked up 100 reviews with a 98% positive rating, so I spent time with the Skelly community adding a whole bunch of new stuff to expand it to it’s current deamonica form. It was a real communal effort and a lot of fun, hope you enjoy the spooks!”
