So, you never got around to playing Immortal Redneck because you are a Nintendo Switch only gamer, no worries, the Egyptian-themed first-person shooter with roguelike elements from developer Crema, will be available on Nintendo Switch on May 10, 2018. As the preface to the story goes, when the titular Redneck crashes his dune buggy in Egypt, he awakens as a mummy with guns in
his hands and questions on his mind.
By using classic FPS techniques like circle-strafing and bunny-hopping he will shoot his way through mythological monsters in the pyramids and discover who the heck wrapped him up. Player will
run-and-gun through three procedurally-generated pyramids and find more than 50 powerful weapons and game-changing scrolls, ensuring no two playthroughs are the same. With more than 50 weapons, 100 game-changing scrolls that help or hinder a run, and nine different player classes, the redneck has plenty of options for avenging his untimely demise. With each death, the Redneck rises anew. Between runs, he can spend money accrued while plundering the ancient temples on stat upgrades, new classes with both active and passive abilities, and scrolls that modify the next run.
Scrolls are risky and come in positive and negative flavors, adding fun permutations. The Troll’s Foot scroll can be a blessing since it provided immunity to standing in lava and acid, but draw a negative scroll like Caution, Wet Floor, and the Redneck will continuously slide everywhere forever unable to stop. Immortal Redneck, which is currently available available on Steam, the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live will be available on Nintendo Switch in English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Polish, and Korean for $19.99 USD / €19.99 / £17.99 – The game will be available for preview on April 19.
