Gamersky, one of China’s most popular and powerful companies in the gaming industry, has just revealed that Gamersky Games will globally publish the indie EON Fighter. Developed by Square Wheel, EON Fighter features spaceship action and resource acquisition.
The release window for a full launch has not been confirmed. However, EON Fighter has been available in Early Access on PC since last November, and you can also download a demo. The official Steam page states that the dev expects EON Fighter to remain in Early Access for “around six months”.
Here’s the full statement from Gamersky on their new publishing announcement for EON Fighter:
EON Fighter has a lot of potential, so it’s great to see such an industry titan recognize that. Square Wheel has gradually released a series teasers and updates about their game, all of which looks very promising. Players who have invested time in the demo and Early Access version have also been pleased. You can review a recent gameplay trailer from Square Wheel’s official YouTube channel:
EON Fighter’s bullet hell action is made accessible by a very compelling art design. The enemies, effects, and environments have a classic arcade facade. But they also have hazy tints, vibrant colors, and well-defined personalities.
Also, the sound effects are absolutely glorious. Each and every action in the game has a creative accompanying tune, and the soundtrack certainly helps.
Even in its Early Access state, EON Fighter perfectly balances modern sensibilities with arcade nostalgia. The UI and mechanics are fresh and neat, distinguishing this from many comparable titles.
The Steam page reveals that Square Wheel is more interested in refining quality instead of adding much more content, but EON Fighter doesn’t really need new content anyway.
