Indie publishing label Modus Games and developer Finish Line Games today shared the first look at Skully, the story of a reanimated skull’s second chance at life. The action-adventure platformer that sees Skully on a quest to stop a simmering war between feuding siblings, rolls onto Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Steam, and Xbox One on August 4, 2020.
Summoned by a local deity desperate for peace among his kin, Skully can sculpt new abilities from pools of magical clay found throughout the lush island he has washed up on. Gameplay in Skully’s debut trailer shows just a few ways the headstrong hero’s clay-boosted forms can open up new areas of the unpredictable landscape.
“We’re really excited to share Skully with the world – We think a lot of people will connect with the game and its heroic journey of a seemingly unimposing character destined to accomplish great things.”
Daniel Posner, CEO of Finish Line Games
