About Umbraclaw

Ahead of this weekend’s Indie Live Expo 2023, held May 20th and 21st, INTI CREATES announced today that development has begun on their newest project, Umbraclaw.

In the 2D side-scrolling action game, players take control of Kuon, a cat on a perilous journey through the afterlife known as the Soulplane. Kuon must brave the afterlife in order to return home to his master.

Taking the helm of development on Umbraclaw, Blaster Master Zero director Satoru Nishizawa will show that cats are not just cute, but cool heroes as well. The game also features an enchanting, art-book graphical style with a hint of darkness that reflects its story.

Will Kuon be able to break through the Boundary to return home safely…?

The “Anima Revive” system will grant Kuon abilities from various animals.

These abilities granted by Anima Revive will be key to overcoming the obstacles Kuon will face on his journey.
