Developer Reikon Games and publisher Devolver Digital are excited to announce that RUINER has arrived on the Nintendo Switch. The game is already acclaimed on other platforms, with its stylish, action-filled, cyberpunk style. It brings very challenging twin-stick shootouts. Not only is it out now on the Switch, but according to the press release, a physical edition is coming soon from Special Reserve Games (specialreservegames.com). The game is available on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $19.99, and it has received an ESRB rating of “M for Mature”. Here’s the Switch trailer:

 

RUINER is a brutal story of vengance that is set in 2091 amongst the backdrop of a dangerous metropolis called Rengkok. It was inspired by cult cyberpunk anime. In order to uncover the truth and get back his kidnapped brother, a psychopath unleashes his wrath as he lashes out at the corrupt system. All the while, he is being guided by a friend of his who happens to be a naturally secretive hacker. If you are to take down the corporate titans that control everything, you’ll need your augmented tools, weapons from your defeated foes, and your reflexes. You can find out more about RUINER at the game’s official website, ruinergame.com.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
