Target Acquired: Outbuddies

Outbuddies, from Julian Laufer, is a retro-style metroidvania. The game stars Nikolay Bernstein, an explorer and archaeologist who becomes shipwrecked and finds himself in a set of caverns 36,000 feet below the surface. He is awakened by a robotic companion - or buddy - who aids him on his journey by scouting out the area around him and manipulating certain objects and enemies. On his journey, Bernstein gains new weapons and abilities that allow him to explore the expansive subterranean world, which is filled with hostile creatures, hulking bosses, and a friendly race known as the Wozan, who seek his help.

The game is available for PC via Steam, GOG, and Humble Store, and it is coming to Switch, PS4, and Xbox One in 2020. Check our coverage here.
