Polygod shoots to release this August

An Intriguing and stylish, rogue-like shooter.

Indie Studio, Krafted Games, have today announced that its much anticipated minimalist, rogue-like, randomly generated FPS, Polygod which features a brutal difficultly curve, epic boss fights with area-shooter style online multiplayer/co-op and local multiplayer modes, will be launching worldwide for Xbox One, PC on Steam and of course Nintendo Switch on August 17th, 2018. For those who don’t know, Polygod had already been in Early Access since later 2016 but has already attracted a legion of fans with its distinctive, bold visual style and solid gameplay mechanic. However, now poised for launch on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and of course the full launch on Steam for PC, Polygod is ready to challenge even the most refined FPS guru. Additionally, Dominic Obojkovits, co-founder, Lead Designer and Programmer at Krafted Games had this to say about the launch of Polygod.

“It’s been a long road to release and we’re super excited to finally get the game into the hands of our community.We firmly believe PolyGod offers a unique take on the FPS genre and are confident that our ideas and game direction will strike a chord with the hardcore fans of the genre worldwide”.
