Developer Massive Monster (The Adventure Pals) and publisher Armor Games Studios have announced they will release Never Give Up on Nintendo Switch. This brutally hardcore platformer that lets you see what you’re made of — in more ways than one — will launch on Switch through the Nintendo eShop, as well as Windows PC and Mac via Steam and GOG.com, on August 13.
The next generation of the hit Give Up game series, Never Give Up is a death-defying, twitch-based platformer packed full of vicious traps and hazards designed to turn you into bloody goo — but the only way out is through! Never Give Up is the biggest installment in the franchise yet, with over 150 bite-sized stages of buzzsaws, guided missiles, giant rhino mechs, huge boss battles and more.
Success only ups the challenge: every time you beat a level, another element is layered in to make it even harder. With even a single misstep spelling doom, Never Give Up may make you rage, but with treacherous platforming to master and a “Give Up” button to circumvent failure — even death is a blast.
Never Give Up is made for speedrunners with built-in leaderboards, ghost racing and splits timers for tracking and perfecting your route with each iteration. There are also tons of costumes, collectibles, secrets and humor to discover, made even better with the voice talent of Game Grumps’ Egoraptor (Arin Hanson) and colorful carnage illustrated by Jimp.
