Frozenbyte has released a video introducing the diverse cast of playable characters of the upcoming blast-em-up game of magic mayhem, Nine Parchments! The cast includes eight wizarding apprentices from various backgrounds, including a surprise appearance by the master of boxes himself from the Trine series, Amadeus!
If you aren’t sure what Nine Parchments is, it’s co-operative blast ’em up game of magical mayhem from Frozenbyte. Runaway apprentice wizards seize the opportunity to complete their spellbooks by going after the lost Nine Parchments. As the would-be wizards rapidly acquire powerful new spells without learning proper safety measures, it’s natural their hasty progress results in plenty of deadly accidents…
Nine Parchments will be playable at gamescom at the Indie Arena Booth, and at the Indie MEGABOOTH at PAX West, and will be shown for the first time ever on Nintendo Switch! The demo will have four player co-op, and includes a boss battle against a dangerous, firebreathing Treasure Mantis.
Frozenbyte CEO Lauri Hyvärinen commented on the playable Nintendo Switch version: “We’re huge fans of Switch here at Frozenbyte and are ecstatic to show a playable version of Nine Parchments! It’s going to be a blast in co-op!”
Nine Parchments is in the final stages of development, and set to launch later this year on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4 and PC, with a more precise launch date still to be announced.
