Nine Witches: Family Disruption from Blowfish Studios and Indiesruption is summoning supernatural hijinks to PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam in Q2 2020.
Something strange is happening in Sundäe, a rustic village on the northwest coast of Norway. As the fires of World War II rage on, members of the Third Reich’s Okkulte-SS division have descended on the hamlet, harnessing a mystical power to strike a terrible blow against Allied forces. Under direct orders from the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister, Professor Alexei Krakovitz, a quadriplegic Russian expatriate renowned for his research into the occult sciences, and Akiro Kagasawa, the professor’s capable assistant, arrive in Scandinavia to investigate reports of witchcraft and put an end to the Nazi’s hellish machinations.
Explore Sundäe and meet more than 70 eccentric and quirky characters as the duo seeks answers to supernatural enigmas. Along the way you will collect clues to unravel the mysteries. As Professor Krakovitz players will cross from the world of the living to the realm of the dead, who can traverse the Astral Plane, passing through corporeal barriers and possessing weak-minded individuals without having to leave his wheelchair. When situations need a physical touch switch to Kagasawa who can ferry items to solve puzzles, or take the fight to the Germans and otherworldly entities in the side-scrolling action combat.
Soak in the scenery of Sundäe which is brought to life with retro-inspired pixel art, accompanied by a comical story that drips with gleefully absurd and dark humour. Players had better prepare for the unexpected as the heroic duo encounters one bizarre encounter after the next on their path to stop the Third Reich, and help them to save the world from the Okkulte-SS’s evil schemes.
