Annapurna Interactive is a publisher that constantly puts out video games that are the equivalent of arthouse movies, and we mean that in the best way. If you’re looking for the cinematic, the strange, and the downright kooky, Annapurna’s catalogue is where you’ll find it. They’re the Devolver Digital of games about everything, and nothing, you know?
After having published LA-based developer Ben Esposito’s Donut County, it seems like they’ve snapped up his next game, too: Neon White, a first-person action game where you play an assassin from Hell, tasked with killing demons in Heaven. Talk about a mood change!
The team features Aevee Bee and Ryann Shannon on writing, previously of We Know The Devil and Cartoon Network show OK KO! respectively.
With inspirations from “Y2K-era anime and cult-classic character action games,” according to Esposito, it’s sure to be an instant favourite for some. “It’s a campy anime speedrunning game made for freaks, by freaks.”
Annapurna says the game is “coming soon”, but that’s all we know. Wishlist it here.
