Publisher Thermite Games and developer O.T.K. Games have announced a release date for Detained: Too Good for School.
Their buxom beat ’em up game is finally launching for Windows PC (via Steam) sometime in 2024. The game will support English, Japanese, Chinese, and various other languages.
Console ports for the game on Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation are planned as per the game’s Kickstarter campaign, but they weren’t given a release date today.
“What we kept hearing from thousands of fans of our last title The Vagrant was that they loved the combat, but wanted more options and things to do,” said Canlin Liu, Producer at O.T.K. Games in a press release. “So we took the combat engine from The Vagrant and made it feel even better, with more creative ways to pummel enemies and even more reasons to do so in the expansive world.”
Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:
You’ve been a bad girl. Now it’s time to become even worse.
After being released from a juvenile detainment facility, you set out on a dangerous mission to avenge your brother’s murder. Your journey will see you making valuable allies and powerful enemies, exploring a decaying urban jungle ruled by gangs that all want you dead, and customizing your skills and equipment to become the ultimate force of vengeance—all while uncovering a vast conspiracy that could alter the course of the city’s future.Features
Play as a badass schoolgirl able to hold her own against hordes of violent foes. Based on an enhanced version of the celebrated combat engine from The Vagrant, fights in Detained: Too Good for School are fast-paced, hard-hitting, and intensely satisfying. More than ninety upgradeable skills and an armory of weapons to collect will give you the edge needed to leave the streets littered with the bodies of those who stand in your way.
