Indie game publisher Nicalis has announced that its tough-as-nails, 8-bit, action-platformer 1001 Spikes is set for release next week on June 3.
The game stars Aban Hawkins as he searches for his estranged, world-famous archaeologist father who mysteriously disappears but leaves behind a map that points to ruins where legendary treasure awaits. Known for its brutal difficulty, 1001 Spikes also features single and multi-player co-op as well as vs. multiplayer. There are also nearly two dozen unlockable, playable characters that have different abilities (such as Curly from Cave Story), over 100 stages to clear, and multiple endings to obtain.
1001 Spikes will be available for purchase on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita (via the PlayStation Store), and Steam (Windows and OSX) for $14.99. Nicalis also confirmed that the game will feature Cross-Play, allowing PS4 and Vita owners to receive both versions for one price. Additionally, there will be a $5 loyalty discount on Steam for anyone who has also bought Cave Story or Night Sky.
