All In! Games (publishers of Ghostruner, Chernobylite and others) revealed its own internal development studio, Ironbird Creations, along with a teaser for their new IP, Phantom Hellcat.
Touting dynamic perspective changing inspired by Nier, Phantom Hellcat will launch on PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
Players control Jolene, a rebellious young woman who breaks the seal on a cursed theater filled with dangerous dimensions and pompous props. The seal holding back the darkness weakens until the evil trapped inside takes Jolene’s mother hostage. Soon, twisted stories will escape and wreak havoc.
Phantom Hellcat promises visceral combos and laser-sharp platforming controls. By using the powers sealed in mysterious characters masks, Jolene will improve her stats and gain new abilities. These abilities will prove vital as Jolene explores theatrical plays inspired by pop culture, including a Transylvanian bibliotheque where vampires may lurk.
Ironbird Creations promise to produce an action game reminiscent of those seen in the 2010s, rather than the recent trend of ‘souls-like’ and ‘rogue-like’ action games.
Stay tuned for more info in the future.
