22.11.2021: Today, Indie publisher Ratalaika Games, together with BUG-Studio the developer, is pleased to announce the digital release date for 6Souls, an exciting saga coming on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Microsoft Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch set for 3rd December 2021.

Retro fans can delight and be immersed in this creative and retro styled puzzle jaunt to fight monsters, defeat bosses, untangle a web of very tricky confrontations and brain teasing events that unfold in what is a long, charming and eventful journey.

A bridge too far? 
Jack and his faithful dog Butch are big adventure lovers and one day come across a map in which they find details of an abandoned castle of the Clifford family, so they eagerly make their way in search of possible treasure.

It soon becomes apparent that actually getting into the castle may not be that straightforward. As they make their way to the castle's bridge, it collapses and they have to get out of the abyss through the castle's basement, in which they find the first soul (the soul of the palace), who asks for help…………..

The story in 6Souls is presented in an interesting and inventive way with its tangle of events that unwind the further you proceed. 6Souls presents 10 main chapters, with more than 80 levels in the normal game mode, and more than 120 levels in the difficult mode, complete with bosses, this delightful presentation offers many hidden surprises that draw you deeper into the story. 

Clever!
The interaction between Jack and his dog adapts throughout the story. There are parts of the levels where Jack cannot squeeze through, since the passages are very narrow, but Butch can do it. Jack carries his dog Butch in a backpack.  Butch gets out of the backpack and crawls into the slot on the level, after which the player gets control for Butch. Butch is faster, more agile and also has a double jump. Butch will bring Jack the keys to complete the level. There will also be a part of the game in which the player will ONLY need to play AS BUTCH, and this will have "Stealth" mechanics. SPOILER: According to the plot, Jack is captured and Butch goes in search of Jack to save him. The player will need to hide behind the boxes from the orcs so as not to get caught by them.

Plenty to see
  • 8 different locations with their own unique features and challenges 
  • Each location has its own characteristics
  • Forest, Castle Dungeon, Castle, library, laboratory and more!
Plenty to Do - Amazing Surprises
6Souls offers more than meets the eye with situations that unfold and challenge in a number of ways - Poisonous gas pipes in the laboratory,  gusts of wind in the balconies - which will either help the player or prevent the player from completing the levels by fighting bosses galore. There are even spiders that hang on a web from the ceiling, as well as magical bookshelves that move by themselves.

Something new and interesting.
