It’s time to grab your trusty bible and get to work again! Publisher Headup and developer MorbidWare today announced that their exceptionally fun mix between bullet hell and typing, The Textorcist: The Story of Ray Bibbia, was just expanded with a new DLC called The Village.
In The Textorcist: The Village, you follow the private exorcist Ray Bibbia 10 years in the past, proving yourself in an adventure set in a pastoral village where religion is considered only a relic of bygone days. Dodge bullets while typing exorcisms to unveil the mystery that lurks in Castel di Vania and get ready to face ancient demons with only the help of your bible and your typing skills.
The Village DLC is available now on Steam, GOG and the Epic Games Store for $2.99 / €2.99 / £2,69, featuring three new chapters, three devilish bosses and six new tunes to blast through your speakers – composed by the great synthwave artist Carbon Killer.

Alternatively, you can get the “Amen Bundle” for $22.46 / €22.46 / £18.32, which includes the base game, The Textorcist soundtrack, The Village DLC and the full DLC soundtrack, including the fantastic new tracks from Carbon Killer.

hunderful, Mixtvision & Monokel are pleased to announce that cinematic puzzle platformer White Shadows is out now on PS5 (NA / EU), Xbox Series X|S and PC for $19,99 / €19.99 / £16.99. Step into a rich and atmospheric world where you play as a little Ravengirl trying to escape a brutal dystopia founded on propaganda that puts her at the bottom of its hierarchical social ladder.
White Shadows’ striking architectural forms and stunning monochrome art style combine to create a world of tragic beauty. It’s a world where the lies of the elite are plastered across its walls, where twisted forms of entertainment are used to keep everyone in their place, and where hope seems in short supply.
Composed of a vast network of towers rising from the void of post-catastrophe darkness into the sky above, the city our young heroine seeks to escape is a dangerous place to be. She will have to find ways to avoid the teeth of machinery primed to grind her into dust, leap across rickety infrastructure that bridges the cavernous darkness all around and avoid the watchful eyes of guards ready to gun her down. She will travel to the city’s brightest highs and delve to its darkest depths on her journey, discovering her destiny among the last free people alive.
“It’s been a long road to get to this point and we couldn’t be more happy that people are finally going to be able to get to play the game we’ve been working so hard on,” said Daniel Wagner, creative director and co-founder at Monokel. “We can’t wait to see what people make of White Shadows and how they connect with the impactful experience we are trying to deliver.”
Headup & The Bitfather are delighted to announce that 80s-inspired roguelike/RPG, Pixel Heroes: Mega Byte & Magic, is out today (15 PM CEST Europe/ 9AM PST America) on Nintendo Switch for 14.99 USD/14.99 EUR/11.99 GBP, with a 15% discount in the US, bringing with it an exclusive mode, a new campaign and new heroes.
Pixel Heroes draws on retro-inspirations to deliver a mix of RPG and roguelike gameplay backed by a retro-pixel art style, an 8-bit soundtrack, or, new to the Switch version, the option of an orchestral soundtrack changing on the fly. The game features 33 unique hero classes to unlock, each with their own individual skills and attributes, four unlockable campaigns, including the new “The Legend of Hack Hammerson'' campaign, each with its own final dungeon and boss, and heaps of procedurally generated axes, spears, spells, crossbows and more to add to your arsenal.
In the new Arena mode, exclusive to Switch, players can freely choose a party from the entire hero pool and take them into a series of infinite battles that get harder as you progress. Special bonus effects can be selected to modify the next battle, making it easier, or more rewarding.
Aside from the deadly dungeons, expect plenty of fun, lots of irreverence, and tons of jokes in a world of weird NPCs and hilarious events. Be careful though! This is a roguelike, so it’s got permadeath! At least if you do bite the dust, you can visit a detailed graveyard to mourn your lost heroes and compare their statistics.
You can get a feel for the humour on offer in this classically-style adventure in the game’s tongue-in-cheek making of trailer (which seems to have been made on a VCR), where you will get a look at the “Unity Engine” like you’ve never seen before, as well as the studio’s innovative use of the “brand new” NES to help make the game’s 8-bit soundtrack.
“We’re delighted that Pixel Heroes is finally out on Nintendo Switch,” said lead designer Tom Hirsch. “The Switch has proved to be a fantastic platform for indie games and we think players are going to have a lot of fun with our retro RPG and roguelike mechanics”.
You will find the game now on the Nintendo eShop (Europe / America)!
