SAN FRANCISCO - MARCH 20, 2019 - Flight School Studio announced their brand new game via this morning’s Nintendo Switch Nindies Showcase Spring 2019 : Creature in the Well, an adventure in which players must unlock the power of an ancient facility and face the ominous all-seeing Creature. This unique top down, pinball-inspired hack & slash dungeon crawler comes from Flight School Studio’s brand new Montreal studio and will be coming to the Nintendo Switch and PC this summer.

The game will be playable at GDC from Wednesday through Friday in the Indie MEGABOOTH. Attending PAX East? You can book a demo appointment here and be one of the first to experience the game again, as part of the Indie MEGABOOTH.

Creature in the Well is a top down pinball inspired hack and slash dungeon crawler. As the last remaining BOT-C unit, venture deep into a desert mountain to restore power to an ancient facility, haunted by a desperate Creature. Uncover and upgrade powerful gear in order to save the city of Mirage from a deadly sandstorm.

  • Defeat the Creature: Escape the many challenges set by the Creature and get face-to-face with it in impressive confrontations.
  • Dungeon-crawler: Delve deeper into the mountain as you unlock each of the eight dungeons, each filled with unique gameplay themes, unlockables, and secrets to uncover.
  • Pinball with swords: Charge up energy orbs and have them bounce around and ricochet in order to reactivate dormant machinery.
  • Over 20 unique items: Customize your playstyle with upgradeable weapons and clothing that change how you play the game.
