A couple of months ago, PlayStation Japan released a trailer that showcased a slew of indie titles that were on their way to the PlayStation platforms. One of those, a crazy twitch platformer called Downwell is set to release on PS4 and PS Vita this month on May 24th.
In a post on the Official PlayStation Blog, the game's creator, Ojiro Fumoto revealed the news as well as a new trailer showcasing Downwell's gameplay (shown above).
Here's the official description of the game.
Downwell is a curious game about a young person venturing down a well in search of untold treasures with only his Gunboots for protection. Make your way further and further down into the darkness filled with nasty creatures and mysterious secrets to collect the spectacular red gems scattered about the rocks. Step into precariously placed shops and buy some helpful items or level up between levels to battle well-dwelling monsters and uncover hidden caves filled with riches and relics. No two trips down the well are ever the same!
Downwell originally released on PC and Mobile, reeling in an impressive set of Metacritic scores in the process (84 and 91 respectively).
