Madrid, April 27th, 2022. Mansion Games announces today that the Kickstarter campaign for its upcoming 2D run 'n' gun Operation Highjump: The Fall of Berlin has reached its funding goal on Kickstarter in just six hours. Operation Highjump: The Fall of Berlin is a story-driven 2D run 'n' gun that fuses the frenetic and platforming sections of the genre's classics while adding puzzles and tactical missions that will be released on PlayStation®4, though one of the goals of the campaign is to also release it on PlayStation®5 and Steam. Ot has been developed under the PlayStation ®Talents program, an initiative by Sony Interactive Entertainment España (SIE España) aimed at promoting the Spanish indie video game scene by giving the studios access to mentoring, marketing tools as well as dev kits. Operation Highjump: The Fall of Berlin will also have a physical edition that will be published by Meridiem Games.


Operation Highjump: The Fall of Berlin is Mansion Games debut title, a small indie studio based in Mallorca (Spain) that wanted to merge all its heavy influences into a game that pays tribute to the old arcade days.
