First presented at Nintendos Nindies Showcase during PAX West, the award-winning retro style side-scrolling shooter is now available for your Nintendo Switch!
In Earth Atlantis, mankind’s main capitals are destroyed and lay deep down at the bottom of the sea as ruins of steel and stone. The machines have found their place in this new environment and now roam the seas as terrifying hybrids of creatures and machines.
Earth Atlantis features the style of old sketches, reminiscing a time, where sea exploration commenced and the sea was believed to be inhabited by fantastic as well as dangerous creatures. Now, once again, the world has to be discovered. Board one of four individual submarines, each with different advantages and weaponry, and hunt down huge bosses in fierce battles.
Rediscover humankind’s sunken world and dive now into the new ancient world of Earth Atlantis.
“The Great Climate Shift” struck at end of the 21st century. Ninety-six percent of the earth’s surface is underwater. Human civilization has fallen. Machines have adopted the shape and form of marine animals.
The ocean is full of creature-machine hybrid monsters. You are a “Hunter” and the new journey begins…
