Gamescom is happening throughout the week, and as such gamers can expect a ton of new announcements surrounding highly anticipated titles, as well as new releases from publishers and developers. Nothing beats the excitement surrounding fresh news on upcoming titles, and these are at the center of the five-day major gaming event at the Koelmnesse in Germany. Be sure to stay tuned with us the whole week as we bring you the latest from Gamescom 2019 in the form of the latest trailers, announcements, news and other information drops on all the newest games hitting the market.

An announcement trailer has just been released for 2D platformer EarthNight, developed and published by Cleaversoft. The game will launch for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac in 2019.

Set in a world where Dragons have taken over, it is up to 14-year-old girl Sydney and freelance photographer Stanley to stop these creatures and save the world. The game starts with our protagonists in space because in this reality, humans have been exiled and forced to live in orbit above the planet. With Sydney and Stanley having had enough of this, they decide to skydive back to Earth, taking out as many dragons as they can along the way.

EarthNight is an auto-running platformer that will have players running, jumping, dashing, and sliding across the backs of gigantic dragons, with skydiving pauses in between. The game has more than 35 gameplay-altering powerups that players can acquire by beating and slaying dragons. Water, being a scarce resource in this world, has become the de facto currency. As such, during each run, you collect as many scraps as you can to trade them for water each time you come back to the ship.

EarthNight also guarantees a different experience each time, with procedurally generated levels (and dragons) along the way. Lastly, all this is rendered through 10,000+ frames of hand-painted visuals by artist Mattahan along with an original soundtrack from chiptune musician Chipocrite

EarthNight will launch in Fall 2019. For those whose interests are piqued by the game’s interesting take on the auto-running genre, you can now add EarthNight on your Steam Wishlist.

Be sure to stick around for more news on the latest happenings from Gamescom all throughout the week.
