Over the weekend, the INDIE Live Expo 2020 took place featuring the likes of Toby Fox (Undertale), ZUN (Touhou), and a wealth of other developers. The event was broadcasted from Japan and it featured announcements from indie developers from all over. Most of the games revealed were for PC and Nintendo Switch but there were also a few mobile announcements. Blingame’s HAAK is an upcoming metroidvania with a retro look and an apocalyptic theme. The developers are aiming to have fluid movement and unique weapons with a faster pace than usual action games. The hook is an important aspect of the game. Watch the trailer for HAAK below that showcases some of the gameplay:
Your aim in HAAK is to look for the light of hope as you make your way across the wasteland. There are also many side quests that will provide more context for the story. HAAK from Blingame is in development for iOS, Android, Nintendo Switch, and PC. A release date or release window hasn’t been announced as of this writing. The screenshots on the official website and the trailer above look really nice.
