Get ready for some shadow puppet fighting fun in the form of Shadow Fencer Theatre being developed by ShuddaHaddaLottaFun and due to be released on the PC/ Mac via Steam and Xbox One on June 26th.
If you’re wondering exactly what kind of game this is going to be, take a look at this excerpt from their website;
“Take center stage with a unique cast of characters and make your way to becoming the Grandmaster of the theatre. Perform solo or battle a friend in a veritable variety show of game modes and skits. Whether you are a one-puppet show or sharing the stage, above all else, show the world you are the best performer on the shadowy screen.
Single Player & Local 2 player Fencing Combat:
Story– Find out what it takes to keep a last-of-its-kind shadow puppet theatre in business.
Marathon– Survive the gauntlet and become the Grandmaster.
Improv- Quick play by yourself or with a friend, selecting the cast, stage and direction of the shadowy fight. Direct the Improv fights with a selection of gameplay variations, limits and more.
Skits– a proverbial vaudeville of mini-games set to delight and distract.
Over 16 Selectable characters:
Robots, Giraffes, Pirates and more! An eclectic cast so big we needed a larger dressing room!
8 Unique Stages:
Behold the power of paper cutouts on sticks and string, and their uncanny ability to set the stage and tell a story. The magic of the theatre!
A collection of musical notes that add up to 20 original tracks!”
For those of you interested and able to attend, ShuddaHaddaLottaFun will be at Dreamhack Dallas from Friday 31st May to Sunday 2nd June at Indie Playground booth IZ-07. For more information on their presence at Deamhack Dallas, click here.
