‘Creature In The Well’ Gets Early Release On PS4

Creature In The Well arrives on the PlayStation Store ahead of its planned March 31st release date.

Flight School Studio’s hack-and-slash dungeon-crawler Creature in the Well is now available on PS4, days ahead of its originally planned March 31st launch.

Described by the developer as “pinball with swords” due to its main gameplay gimmick, which has players charming up orbs and bouncing them around the environment to strike enemies and activate ancient equipment, the game puts players in control of the last remaining BOT-C unit who must journey inside of a desert mountain to restore power to an ancient facility and save the city of Mirage from a deadly sandstorm. Unlucky for him, the facility is home to a desperate creature that doesn’t take kindly to intrepid little robots stumbling into his lair.

Check out the accolades trailer below to see what others are saying about the game:

 

Here’s a list of key features courtesy of the game’s publisher MWM Interactive:


 

  • Pinball with swords: Charge up energy orbs, then bounce and ricochet them to reactivate dormant machinery and stop the sandstorm.
  • Defeat the Creature: Escape the many challenges set by the Creature and confront it in intricate, skillful battles.
  • Dungeon-crawler: Delve deeper into the mountain as you unlock eight hand-crafted dungeons, each filled with unique gameplay themes, unlockables, and secrets to uncover.
  • Over 20 unique items: Customize your playstyle with upgradeable weapons and clothing that change how you play the game.

 


Creature in the Well is now available on the PlayStation Store for $14.99.
