Point ‘N Click/Beat ‘Em Up Hybrid “Scrap Riders” Releasing in January for Switch, Steam PC

Never thought I’d write a headline quite like that…

Microids Indie has announced the release date for Scrap Riders on Nintendo Switch and Steam PC.

It’s 9 January.

Developed by Games for Tutti, Scrap Riders features both point ‘n click and arcade brawler mechanics, all wrapped up in a pixel art visual aesthetic.

You can check out the full breakdown of Scrap Riders below, followed by the release announcement trailer:

Scrap Riders is a pixel art beat’em up adventure game set in a cyberpunk future, developed by Spanish studio Games for Tutti. You play as Rast, a member of the outlaw bikers gang Scrap Riders, and make your way through the wastelands as well as a big metropolis controlled by corporations. Act as a smuggler with caustic humor to survive in this post-apocalyptic world.

Fight your way through this 2D beat them up using your fists and guns, but beware: the wastelands are not for the faint of heart. There, violence is always the answer, but it won’t be enough! Without your wits you won’t last long. Talk to the right people, gather clues, and kick bad guys’ butts!

Key features:

  • A unique gameplay mix: Scrap Riders offers an original combination of Beat ’em up gameplay and old-school Point’n Click adventure puzzles & dialogs. Fight, point & click your way through the story!
  • A retro art style: Embrace a unique retro vibe with lovely pixel art visuals and a 16-bit soundtrack!
  • Crazy humor and references: Have some laughs with zany dialogs from quirky characters and try to identify all the meta jokes and pop culture references hidden throughout the game!
  • A fascinating cyberpunk world to explore: Wander through the diverse environments of this post-apocalyptic universe, from wastelands to a big neo-punk metropolis controlled by corporations.

Scrap Riders is currently scheduled to release on 9 January 2023 for Nintendo Switch and Steam PC.
