Developer BitNine Studio and publisher WhisperGames invite players to exploit glorious bugs and glitches in tERRORbane, a comedic adventure that will be released on Nintendo Switch and PC on April 1st (for real though, not an April Fools prank). Dive into quirky and outlandish levels filled with bugs to collect as the Developer berates and pokes players along the way. You can watch the new trailer here!
Thought this would be another run-of-the-mill RPG with all the genre’s tropes (how many princesses have we rescued from castles by now)? Nominated for Best Original Game at the Gamescom 2021 Awards, tERRORbane tasks players with becoming the Terrorbane, savior of the world, and squasher of all bugs and glitches. The Developer (who swears he’s made the best game ever, but the long list of bugs says otherwise), will be there every step of the way, providing a running commentary throughout each level.
Navigate the Developer’s clumsy design by hunting for bugs in levels that pay homage to classics like Final Fantasy, Super Mario Bros, and The Legend of Zelda. From doors that randomly disappear into your inventory to a spontaneous DDR minigame, a variety of bugs are around every corner. Fill up a list of bugs and exploit every loophole possible!
When it comes to hunting bugs, once is never enough. In tERRORbane, the player’s choices shape the world around them. Replaying each level will lead to new characters to meet, areas to find, and even more, bugs to add to the collection. Castles, dungeons, starships, and more are waiting to be explored…with a fourth-wall-breaking plot holding everything together!
- Experience a meta-narrative adventure where you shape the story
- Meet The Developer: a fourth-wall breaking character that acts as both a narrator and an antagonist within the game.
- Discover hilarious bugs and glitches, which can be seen in the bug list menu
- Relive iconic (bug-filled) moments in video game history
- Multiple playthroughs invite you to discover as many bugs as possible and find every branching path.
tERRORbane codes its way on Nintendo Switch and PC on April 1st. Players can wishlist the game on Steam now and experience the hilarious demo.
