Atomik: RunGunJumpGun getting a physical Switch release
Running to retail
Super Rare Games has teamed up with ThirtyThree and Good Shepherd to get Atomiks and bring you Atomik: RunGunJumpGun, the treacherously simply controlled yet tough-as-nails 2D action platformer, to Switch physically for the very first time.
A total of 4,000 copies will ever be printed. The game will go on sale on March 30th at 6pm BST (10am PDT/1pm EDT) - available worldwide exclusively at superraregames.com.
A standard Super Rare Games release comes with all current content on its cart at the time of printing, a full-color manual, interior artwork, an exclusive sticker, and trading cards. Fans also won’t be waiting for long as Super Rare Games titles ship shortly after release.
With a teeth-rattling, gravity-defying weapon in your hand, a cast of crazed characters, simple but beautifully difficult gameplay, and a pulsing musical score, Atomik: RunGunJumpGun is a loud, trippy mess of twitchy platforming goodness.
The game takes place in the Extax System, a solar system where the Sun has begun to swell and devour planets. With most of the planets already devoured, the remaining worlds have descended into madness and superstition. Each denizen has their own theory on why the sun seems so enraged, but they all hang on one central element: Atomiks, the primary resource in the entire system.
You play as a scavenger, a rogue from outside the Extax System who seems to have only one goal: get Atomiks. What do the Atomiks mean to the scavenger? Does he want to scoop up precious resources for himself, or use them as a way to appease the sun and end the suffering of the system? Or Maybe they’re just shiny pick-ups in a video game to him.
