Action Rescue Platformer Firegirl Announced, Launches Fall 2021


Thunderful Publishing and Dejima Games have announced action rescue platformer Firegirl during the Guerrilla Collective showcase.

As stated in the press release (via email), players control a young fire rescue officer of a rundown fire station. Using your axe and high-pressure hose (doubling as a jetpack), save all the civilians in three minutes from buildings that are ablaze. You can extend your time with feats of bravery and other methods.

Douse flames and pyro-monsters, hack through obstacles, save the city, and uncover the mystery of who is sparking these disasters. At the firehouse you can upgrade your gear; possibly the rougelite elements mentioned in the press release.

Hire more staff, play your bills, and listen to your fan-base. The game also boasts fusing pixel art and 3D visuals, and using next-gen rendering techniques such as dynamic lighting.

“Firefighting is such a thrilling setup to create our vision of an action rescue platformer,” said Dejima founder Julien Ribassin. “We wanted to capture the sense of imminent danger that comes facing this natural disaster and translate it into a whimsical arcade adventure.”

“Although the players will come face to face roaring blazes and fire-monsters, the goal is rescuing and helping survivors. Firegirl was designed with both newcomers and veterans to the genre of action platformers in mind, and we can’t wait for people to try it out for themselves when it launches this Fall.”

“We’re always on the lookout for new, exciting games at Thunderful and Firegirl is right up our alley,” said Thunderful’s Head of Publishing, Dieter Schoeller. “It takes the seemingly simple concept of fighting fires and makes it utterly captivating. It’s the perfect pick up and play title, offering a zippy arcade twist on rescuing people from an environmental disaster.”
