While some would have readily embraced the growing trend of only major video game releases receiving physical distribution given the ready availability of online distribution platforms, there are still some publishers, developers and distribution houses offering limited print runs of smaller and indie titles. PM Studios and acttil are one such example with their upcoming release of futuristic open-world parkour game Hover for the Nintendo Switch.
Ahead of the game’s March 9 2020 release, it was confirmed that 5,000 physical units of Hover will be made available exclusively through the PM Studios Online Store. Preordering the physical edition will also nab customers a $5 USD discount, taking the price from $29.99 USD down to $24.99 USD.
“Hover” lets you experience the thrills of a fast-paced parkour game, either alone or with friends. Join the Rebellion to take on the security forces of an anti-leisure tyranny, and rise up to the many challenges of a futuristic open world. Assemble your team, strap on your gear, and tear through the world using incredible tricks and combos. The game takes place in ECP17 (also known as Hover City by its residents), a high-tech metropolis located on a distant planet.
The Great Admin has cut all communication with the Galactic Union and established an overwhelming dictatorship. Having fun has become illegal and all forms of entertainment have been banished. You’re the leader of a group of young rebels known as the Gamers, fighting against the new anti-leisure laws oppressing the city. Equipped with high-tech gear allowing for incredible speed and heights, they roam the city sabotaging tools of propaganda, helping citizens, and ultimately searching for a way to reach the Orbital Station in order to get word to the Galactic Union and put an end to the oppression.
