New Blip: Astronite

Astronite, from Dume Games Studio, is a lo-fi metroidvania starring an astronaut whose ship has crash landed... but rather than landing on some mysterious alien world, you are on your own home planet. An ancient being known as the Entity resides in the center of your planet, and while the people knew of this being and even studied it, the Entity remained inscrutable. But one day, the Entity commanded an army of nasty critters to the surface, which is now overrun. You must explore, grow your strength, and gain new abilities to take down enemies and bosses. As you explore, you'll be able to make use of a jetpack, swim underwater, and dash in order to reach new areas, and there are plenty of secrets for intrepid explorers to find along the way.

The game is coming to PC, Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox X/S on November 30.
