The French-developed Samurai Riot is now available for PC via Steam.
The game is a 2D side scrolling beat’em up, that presents 2D arcade gameplay with original co-op that features a multi-branching, moral decision making, storyline leading to eight different endings. Players take on the role of Sukane, an enigmatic Ninja who fights alongside with Azu, the fox - who can transform into weapons; or Tsurumaru, a loyal samurai with a katana and a bunch of grenades, and set off on an adventure in a hand-painted 2D universe between Japanese mythology and cyberpunk.
“We are massive fans of cooperative games, especially arcade style and Samurai Riot really focus on the co-op features.," says Kevin Buchet, Game Designer at Wako Factory "For example, if you protect your partner’s back or hit together the same enemy, you’ll be rewarded and unlock a deadly cooperative attack. Even the story involves both players equally, you’ll have to make team-based choices, or enter a PVP fight against your partner to win the lead.”
Wako Factory was established in 2014, and became an official Indie Game Studio in early 2015.
