Glitches are *probably* intentional
Developer BitNine Studio and publisher WhisperGames have launched tERRORbane, a JRPG-inspired fourth-wall breaking adventure for PC and Nintendo Switch. Check out the launch trailer above and the full press release below for more details.
Forli, Italy - April 1st, 2022 - Exploit glorious glitches and dive into nostalgia-packed levels in tERRORbane, available now on Nintendo Switch and PC! Nominated for Best Original Game at the Gamescom 2021 Awards, tERRORbane tasks players with playtesting a JRPG inspired game from The Developer, who swears his game is the greatest of all time (we’ll break the news to him later).
Italian indie developer BitNine Studio and publisher WhisperGames invite fellow playtesters to become the mighty Terrorbane, destroyer of all bugs and glitches. Complete levels that pay homage to old school Final Fantasy and Zelda games, along with modern classics like Undertale and There is No Game: Wrong Dimension. From a DDR inspired minigame, tabletop card battling, and Pokemon Red and Blue-esque encounters, tERRORbane pokes fun at classic RPG tropes as The Developer provides hilarious commentary along the way.
Navigate The Developer’s clumsy level design by discovering bugs in each level and keeping track of them in the handy bug list. Playing each level once barely scratches the surface. Replay levels multiple times to discover new bugs which will lead to new areas and characters to interact with. Quaint JRPG towns, decrepit caves, and starships are waiting to be explored…with a fourth wall breaking plot holding everything together!
“We’re really excited to finally bring tERRORbane to all of its players,” says Andrea Leoni, co-founder and story writer at BitNine Studio. To us, making this game was an incredible journey and we hope that our love for the media of video gaming shines through to our audience, every step of the way they decide to take with us. tERRORbane truly is a labor of passion and we urge you to never believe the Developer when he tells you what to do or how you should do it. To us BitNine Studio, there is no incorrect way to enjoy our game, except maybe not having fun with it. So ‘GO FORTH, HEROES’ and enjoy some glitchy madness!”
tERRORbane is available now on Nintendo Switch and Steam for $15.99 USD with a 10% launch week discount.
