Stand your ground! A beam of light is your only salvation!

Saskatchewan, Canada – June 16th, 2020 – Sunnyside Games and Noodlecake Studios are proud to reveal the Steam release of Towaga: Among Shadows is getting a demo from June 16th-22nd as part of the Steam Game Festival. During this time you’ll be able to play through the game’s first chapter, experiencing Towaga: Among Shadows‘ unique blend of twin-stick shooting and frantic defensive gameplay.

In Towaga: Among Shadows players take on the role of Chimù who needs to harness the power of light to save his island from the nefarious Metnal the Voidmonger and his Legion of Darkness. This plays out in a unique take on the twin-stick shooter where ground-based combat sees you planted in a fixed position, aiming an endless beam of light to vaporize your opponents. Take to the skies, however, and you’ll have full control over Chimu as you fly between opponents.

Explore an enchanted land with graphics and cinematics inspired by animation great Genndy Tartakovsky, all the while enjoying an immersive soundtrack accompanying your every move in this mystical world where defeat is simply not an option.

As you battle through more than 70 unique stages you’ll unlock new spells, gear, outfits and lore diaries. Gain XP to to deal more damage, increase your magic potency, and expand your HP. Towaga: Among Shadows includes four single-player game modes, including the narrative-based Story Mode, bite-sized Trial challenges, and Endless Mode where you survive as long as you can to attain a high high-score. With over 60 unlockables, 50 Achievements, and online leaderboards, there’s always something to come back to in Towaga: Among Shadows. Will you be the one to vanquish the shadows and return peace to the island?

“We wanted to make a fluid arcade action game that made players feel simultaneously powerful and vulnerable,” said Ryan Granville, Producer at Sunnyside Games. “Towaga: Among Shadows‘ unique blend of giving you an all powerful superweapon, but then locking you into position with it, captured that feeling of an epic last stand. We then implemented the free-wheeling flight sections to give players a sense of variety and freedom as they switch between these modes. You’ll get a taste for all of it when you try this demo.”
