Actos Games, creator of their new Wii U exclusive title, psyscrolr, (pronounced “Sy-Scroller”) have announced their game will be launching this week, specifically April 2nd, 2015, on Nintendo’s eShop service.
In releasing the game to the public, Actos Games’ CEO, Jonathan Meyer had these words to say: “We really want the players to connect with the world of psyscrolr. We’ve engineered a fantastic soundtrack put together by a joint team of composers, Mauro Zocco and Scott Hitchcock, both two up-and-coming video game music maestros.” Meyer added, “In particular, we have a sunset level as an homage to Donkey Kong Country: Returns and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze where the entire level is shadowed by the sun. This level is enhanced by Zocco’s lazy summer track with an added cicada noise to get the player into the mood. We think you’ll really love it.”
The game will be adding additional DLC over time after its initial release. “We feel the story of psyscrolr serves itself better updated over time. A more episodic feel invites players to want to come back to the world, continue their save, and find more,” Jonathan Meyer stated. “An example are the letters strewn throughout certain levels of the game. There are more secrets we plan to add in a further update, as well as hidden mini-games added to the game to enhance replayability with leaderboards and Miiverse features planned.”
