Follow a young girl on a journey of hope & horror in this inventive take on the boss-rush genre.
23 MARCH 2020 – Glass Revolver and publisher, Armor Games Studios are delighted to announce that ITTA will be releasing on PC and Nintendo Switch simultaneously on 22nd April 2020.
To accompany the announcement, launch date trailers for both formats have been made available. The trailers feature a first look at the beautiful but twisted world of ITTA and the frenetic bullet-hell inspired gameplay featured within.
ITTA is a boss-rush style adventure about loss, grief and hope. Players take control of a young girl, the titular heroine, armed with her father’s revolver, who finds herself in a strange and threatening landscape, guided by the ghostly form of her cat.
To help Itta find a way home, players will need to seek out a host of hostile eldritch beings scattered throughout a seemingly serene overworld. The only way past them is through them, but it won’t be easy, as each malevolent being will require a unique strategy to beat. ITTA is a creation based on developer Jacob Williams’ lived experiences, and began life during Williams’ stay at a psychiatric facility, where development on the game was started. In spite of its bleak beginnings, the game invites players to fight for survival in a world where themes of despair live alongside those of hope, beauty, and compassion.
Williams says “ITTA has been my entire life for the past 3 years and my life is better for it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.”
ITTA launches on both PC and Nintendo Switch on 22nd April 2020.
ITTA is a bullet-hell adventure set in a world filled with monstrous bosses. When Itta wakes up and finds herself surrounded by her dead family, her only guide is a strange spirit that takes the form of the family cat who gifts her a glowing revolver for protection. As Itta, players must seek out the powerful beings locked away beneath this seemingly peaceful world and go toe-to-toe against them in harrowing battles. From hulking ancient golems to toothy horrors, Itta’s journey will push both you and her past their limits. Luckily, you can change up your combat style by finding weapons with unique attack styles, and if the going gets too tough, toggle on invincibility or player damage multipliers at any time. ITTA is a game inspired by themes of personal struggle. If there is light, there must be darkness. The important thing is to keep going… no matter what you endure along the way.
