SYDNEY – Dec. 4, 2020 – Nine Witches: Family Disruption, the comedic alternate-history occult adventure game from developer Indiesruption and publisher Blowfish Studios, manifests today on Nintendo SwitchTM, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC via Steam and GOG. Beep Company and DMM Games will also distribute the IndieCade-nominated Nine Witches: Family Disruption for Nintendo SwitchTM and PlayStation 4 in Japan this winter.
Something strange is happening in the remote Norwegian village of Sundäe, best known for its delicious, three-testicled salmon. As World War II rages on, Sundäe finds itself an unlikely home to the Third Reich’s Okkulte-55 Division. These devious belligerents seek to harness the region’s supernatural energy to secure Germany’s victory in the global conflict.
As the Okkulte-55 spreads through the once-sleepy hamlet, paranormal researcher Professor Alexei Krakovitz and his trusty assistant Akiro Kagasawa arrive at the Allies’ behest. Guide the pair on an investigation transcending the mortal realm, commune with spirits, chat with colorful locals, and fight back against the Third Reich as they attempt to raise literal Hell.
Switch between characters to harness their innate abilities. Astral project as the Professor to uncover otherworldly information and hold court with Sundäe’s departed souls to aid the duo’s investigation. Chat with locals and scour for clues as Akiro, solving puzzles and piecing together the town’s mysteries, and prepare to flex Akiro’s muscles during combat if the Okkulte-55 catches wind of the duo’s operation.
Prepare for surprises, shocking revelations, and hearty laughs as Krakovitz and Kagasawa explore Sundäe while interacting with more than 50 characters. Experience a story steeped in paranormal activity and absurdist humor set against the backdrop of one of history’s darkest hours. Soak in Sundäe’s charms and quirks, brought to life with retro-inspired pixel art.
“Throughout my life, I’ve been fascinated by the intersection of the otherworldly and human history,” said Diego Cánepa, designer, Indiesruption. “Nine Witches: Family Disruption is my chance to share my interests and sense of humor with the gaming world.”
Nine Witches: Family Disruption is now available on Nintendo SwitchTM, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam and GOG for Windows PC for $19.99 USD / 17.99 / £15.99. It features English, Spanish, German, French, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional) language support with Japanese coming alongside the Japanese release.
