GoNNER, the tough as hell procedurally-generated 2D platformer with roguelike elements shown off during the Nindies Direct, is heading to the Switch eShop next month. It has been spotted on the eShop “Coming Soon” section, so it’s confirmed to release on June 1st in Europe/Australia, and June 8th in North America.
Developed by indie studio Art in Heart, GoNNER was shown for the first time at PAX East last year and came out last year on PC. For the moment we don’t have any more info but we keep our eyes close to publisher Raw Fury’s website in case they announce special features for the Switch version.
GoNNER is a tough as hell procedurally-generated 2D platformer with roguelike elements, following the largely misunderstood and altruistic Ikk on a journey to cheer up his only friend in this world—a giant landbound whale named Sally—by searching for just the right trinket in the deep and dark places nearby.
With Death as his mentor, supplying both a multitude of abilities and arsenal for Ikk to use, Ikk traverses an ever-changing land full of unwieldy creatures who don’t appreciate his trespassing or his friend Sally. Several different environments, arduous bosses, hidden secrets, multiple endings, and more await Ikk on his journey to make one person happy even if it kills him—which it certainly will.
