Composer Celeste Reveals New Shmup RPG ‘ANOTHEREAL’

Celeste Composer and game developer Lena Raine has revealed her latest project OTHERA shmup RPG that combines exploration, puzzle solving, and intense combat.

While a Switch release hasn’t been confirmed at the time of writing, we’re hopeful that an eventual Steam release will pave the way for more platform launches (and maybe our enthusiasm will give publisher Radical Dreamland a little boost!). Likewise, a release date has not been set yet so we may have to wait a bit.

The game sees you controlling Astra, who after receiving contact from her sister to reconnect, finds herself navigating both the world and her inner demons as she comes into ‘existence’. The trailer showcases some lovely pixel art with some interesting encounters typical of the shmup genre. It looks great and we sincerely hope it comes to Switch at some point.

Let’s check out the main features:

– Explore the world inside and outside of Astra’s childhood home, filled with puzzles, mysteries and oddities
– Meet new friends to help Astra navigate Real
– Shoot, dodge, absorb and retaliate in shmup-style encounters
– Customize Astra’s loadout with meaningful objects, experiences, companions, and parts of Herself
– Receive and use items?? Why is this a bullet point?
– Original story, art, and music by award-winning composer Lena Raine

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on ANOTHEREAL and its possible Switch launch in the coming weeks and months.

In the meantime, let us know what you think of the trailer in the comments section below. Are you like us hoping the game comes to Switch?
