Come Elsie how things are shaping up
A new trailer has been released for Elsie that gives us a progress update on the game. In particular, we get to see how things are coming along for the game’s many bosses and biomes. Check out the trailer above to see for yourself.
You play as the android Elsie, embarking on a quest to clean up the world she calls home in this roguelike neon platformer. Start your journey in Sapir Wharf, a haven for all survivors of the attacks on Dr Grey’s city.
From here, players will take the lighthouse teleporter and set out to the staple first location, the Eclipse Skyport, where you’ll encounter your first Guardian: Celestia. Fight through a challenging hoard of enemies, defeat the boss at the end of the biome and you’ll be rewarded with a selection of places to explore. Every playthrough will feature a selection of three biomes to explore, each differing greatly in art style and level design.
Two biomes shared today are The Forgemaster’s Caldero, a volcanic grotto home to Ash, and the Jardin, the lush nature-coated kingdom that the Queen of Thorns Rosalyn calls home. Both of these areas will end with an intense guardian battle, and are but a few of the stopping places you’ll come to expect.
Elsie emphasizes playing the way YOU want to play, leaving progression through this dynamic roguelike platformer firmly in the hands of the player. With a wide assortment of items, augments, and destinations to choose from, no two experiences will truly be the same. This is only a small taste of what is to come in Elsie, and the team is very excited to share this amazing experience with you all.
Choose your playstyle, rock out to a pumping soundtrack and dive into a vibrant world when Elsie launches on Switch!
