Launched in February on PC and Switch, KUNAI is an explosive mix of action, adventure and metroidvania set against the backdrop of a robot revolt. Publisher The Arcade Crew and developer TurtleBlaze now offer a free demo on Steam to players who have not yet plunged into the adventure. A demo for Nintendo Switch is also planned to arrive on the eShop at a later time. To celebrate spring, the game is available with a 30% discount on Steam and the eShop which will end on April 13 and 19 respectively.
KUNAI received positive reviews from international press for its engaging gameplay and unique art style when it launched on PC and Switch. Fans can now get a free look at the various weaponry and moves that will be at their disposal as they slice and stab their way through a hellish but aesthetically pleasing warscape.
An adventure best explored through ninja-tier parkour and best survived with razor sharp combat reflexes, KUNAI is a warrior’s delight, where right off the bat players have ample opportunities to reduce enemies to scrap metal while swinging on ropes across chasms, dashing up walls to lofty goals, and dropping in on unsuspecting targets.
In KUNAI, players dish out swift death as Tabby, an emotive, tablet-powered hero infused with an ancient warrior’s soul. Tabby is resuscitated and rebooted in the midst of a futuristic war between AI robots gone wrong. Humanity is on the brink of extinction thanks to a famed inventor’s botched AI creation, and Tabby sets out to solve things as any handheld consumer electronic warrior hybrid would: with heaps of violence.
With vertical and horizontal level design aimed at keeping you on your toes, navigating the fast-paced world in KUNAI is engaging, challenging and immensely rewarding. Slicing baddies and soaring through KUNAI’s sprawling world with Tabby is a joyous escape, and toppling the land’s merciless bosses in all-out showdowns is immensely satisfying.
