Green Man Gaming have announced their first ever game to be published to console with Skybolt Zack set to come to Switch alongside PC later in 2019.
Developed by France’s DEVS MUST DIE, Skybolt Zack is a rhythm platformer first created as part of a student project. It draws inspiration from Japanese rhythm games and a healthy helping of Mega Man meets Sonic.
Here’s the trailer:
David Clark, Managing Director of Green Man Gaming Publishing, had this to say about their first ever console game:
“It has long been an ambition for Green Man Gaming to expand our horizons and extend our reach beyond PC gaming. When we first saw Skybolt Zack it was almost immediately apparent that this was the game for us to make that jump! The work that DEVS MUST DIE have done with Skybolt Zack in a relatively short time have impressed us tremendously.They are incorporating options for players which we’re not seeing in products from much larger, long standing studios and we can’t wait to show more to the community at various events across the summer”.
Green Man Gaming is primarily known as a retailer for PC games, launching its publishing arm back in 2014. Skybolt Zack will be DEVS MUST DIE’s first game and launches in Q3 2019.
