Classic Shmup Jamestown+ Launches on Nintendo Switch and PC Today
PHILADELPHIA — Dec. 12, 2019 — Jamestown+, the beloved top-down four-player retro shooter set on British Colonial Mars from Final Form Games, lands on Nintendo Switch™ and PC via Steam and the Humble Store today, with a free update to the PlayStation®4 version arriving at a later date.
Return to Jamestown, the absolutely historically-accurate adaptation of that time when Britain colonized Mars. Bask in two new
Join the legendary Sir Walter Raleigh on his quest for absolution as he journeys to the colonies on Mars. Discover forgotten truths hidden from the annals of history, including the disappearance of Roanoke. Take the fight to a power-crazed Conquistador before he can harvest Mars’ terrible secrets for his own destructive devices. Do this all from atop a variety of Conveyances, rocket-sleds capable of both fight and flight.
And how better to brush up the days of yore than with a flight crew? Up to four players can weave through an onslaught of beautiful bullets thanks to local co-op built to accommodate varying skill levels. Learn the three buttons — Fire, Special Attack, and Vaunt, a shield that absorbs attacks and amplifies score — and become unstoppable. Coordinate Special Attacks by choosing complimentary Conveyances. Defend the colonies with screen-filling energy beams, swarms of missiles, and even swords.
“Working on Jamestown+ has been a long and wonderful journey,” said Tim Ambrogi, co-founder of Final Form Games. “It really represents Jamestown’s final form: a complete experience that's accessible to both veterans and first-timers alike.”
Jamestown+ is available on Nintendo Switch via the eShop and PC via Steam and the Humble Store today at a 17% launch discount, taking it from $17.99 to just under $15. Those who own the original Jamestown on Humble or Steam can purchase Jamestown+ for a mere $5 for one week after its release. The PlayStation 4 version will receive the same updates available on the Switch and PC versions at a later date.
