16-bit top-down twin-stick shooter, Tower 57 is heading to Windows 10 PC and Xbox One with Play Anywhere support.
11bit Studios describe the game as
Now, imagine being lost in a steampunk-themed tower-like fortress full of threats straight from campy sci-fi stories. Some of these enemies have tentacles, others with cutting-edge lasers, but all share the same agenda: putting an end to your existence. Now think of the same situation, but with a Tesla gun in your hand, plenty of ammo at your disposal, and a friend who’s got your back. Sounds like a much different, more explosive story doesn’t it?
Tower 57 was Kickstarted after reaching 51,504€ of its 45,000€ goal. It fell short of its 71,000€ stretch goal which would have seen PlayStation 4, Wii U and Xbox One ports being made. It seems that while it didn’t make that goal, the decision to release on Xbox One was made easier thanks to Play Anywhere.
There is currently no set release date for Tower 57 but 11bit Studios has promised that they will be sharing more “in the coming months.” For more, check out 11bit Studios’ Twitter account.
