FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

SEATTLE, WA – August 16, 2019

The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild, the creator of the award-winning titles 'The Bridge' and 'Tumblestone,' is announcing their third third-party title. Next Friday, August 23rd, QAG is bringing 'Gurgamoth' to the Nintendo Switch. ‘Gurgamoth’ is a flying fighting game where the level is your weapon. Each match is lightning quick and focuses on intense flying combat and getting in your opponent's head. The controls are simple, but the mechanics and interesting levels bring out the game’s depth.  

'Gurgamoth' is releasing internationally on August 23rd, on Nintendo Switch. The price will be $9.99 USD. 

Full game details and features:

‘Gurgamoth’ is the perfect mix of party chaos and competitive strategy, ideal for sitting around on the couch with a couple of friends. 

Your only weapon is the level itself: a shifting battlefield with different hazards. ‘Gurgamoth’ is fast, relying on quick timing, but also your ability to read your opponent. Will they dodge your attack and send you flying into a spinning saw blade? Will they spend their attacks on a power-up, leaving them temporarily vulnerable? Will they anticipate your attack and stun you while you're recovering?

Get inside their minds and earn the honor of awakening Gurgamoth.

   

•Unique levels, each with their own dangers

•Game-changing power-ups

•Tight flying mechanics

•Fantastic visual design

•Fast, party-friendly matches

•The most fun you'll have summoning an elder god
