Polish game studio Reikon Games has just announced that their first title called RUINER will be released on Xbox One and Windows 10 this summer with Xbox Play Anywhere support. The game has been in production since January 2015 and is a top-down action shooter set in a cyberpunk environment.
Following an official announcement last year for PC, Mac and Linux, the developer explained on Xbox Wire that "most of the comments and messages we’ve received about Ruiner were about a console release." By teaming up with published Devolver Digital, the game studio settled for an ambitious debut project. "Our fourfecta is exciting gameplay, compelling storyline, amazing graphics, and sound that immerses you in the experience," explained Reikon Games' Magdalena Tomkowicz.
Here is the game's official description:
RUINER is a top-down action shooter created in the spirit of cult cyberpunk anime and game classics. RUINER is quick and brutal but sophisticated gameplay, original world with mature storyline and unique visual style. It was born out of passion for great games but also for pushing the boundaries. RUINER is our own take on cyberpunk motifs but we we're not making a pure cyberpunk game. Our main inspiration is the world we live in. Because the future's already here.
We're pleased to see that more and more developers are embracing Microsoft's Xbox Play Anywhere initiative this year. This is great for consumers, but this also helps the Windows Store to become an increasingly interesting option for PC gamers.
