I like scholar video games for 2 causes: They’re normally actually cool proofs-of-concept and so they’re normally free. 

So it’s with Witchpunk, a free game that hit Steam this month made by a staff known as 99% Funk on the DigiPen Institute of Know-how. In it, you lay down some sick area fight towards company demons as you shred round in your witchy skateboard whereas bashing robots along with your large, magic hammer and/or spraypaint.

Witch Mollie’s greatest trick is that she offers extra injury as she picks up pace, letting her get actual quick with a view to lay out a extremely huge smash. So, as you may think, doing one thing like grinding down the subway rail, or blasting off a ramp, permits you to splatter enemies with delightfully high-speed hammer assaults.

Here is how the devs describe it: “Witchpunk is a third-person melee area fight game where you play as Mollie, a skateboarding witch who battles towards a tyrannical company looking for to destroy Halloween. Skate across the metropolis and the subway, gaining pace with a view to deal devastating blows to robots of all styles and sizes. Skate quicker to slam more durable, and use your spells to depart enemies shocked and reeling!”

It is type of like a decidedly extra violent Tony Hawk seen by the lens of Jet Set Radio followers. To its credit score, it has some properly comic-inspired visuals that make the most of atypical shading work. It is also stuffed with funky beats to skate and jive to.

You’ll find Witchpunk on Steam without cost. If you happen to’re into scholar video games, go try this Goya-inspired horror game subsequent. If you happen to’re right here for witchiness, this is a game about being a cute witch, one about being a creepy witch, and every little thing we all know concerning the upcoming Witchbrook.
