Lichtspeer - a laser-fueled spear-thrower is out on Switch with an all-new co-op mode

A refined Double Speer Edition of the one-and-only game from Ancient Germanic Future is out now on Nintendo Switch.

Warsaw, Poland, September 7th, 2017: Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition is a laser-fueled lightspear throwing simulator infused with an exclusive brand-new co-op mode, available now, only on Nintendo Switch.

In Lichtspeer players' goal is to fight for glory and the amusement of the almighty gods by surviving with style, expanding their powers, and defeating the weirdest enemies you ever heard of, including Wurst Zombies, Hipster Ice Giants and Skater Walruses.

The original game was positively covered by many major gaming portals (Kotaku, RPS, PC Gamer, The Escapist) and some of the biggest content creators (Markiplier, Nerd Cubed, Yahtzee Corshaw and The Co-Optional Podcast).

The Switch exclusive Double Speer Edition introduces an all-new drop-in drop-out co-op mode for 2 players where gamers can summon a space-dog ( das Wunder Hund!) to fight beside them. The refined version of the game also includes a new save system, major tweaks to the original game difficulty level and tons of small gameplay improvements.

Main game features:

- THUNDEROUS DROP-IN DROP-OUT CO-OP

- AN ANCIENT GERMANIC FUTURE IS HERE

- SHOW OF YOUR LIGHTSPEAR-THROWING SKILLS

- WUNDERBAR BOSS BATTLES

The team consists of 2 developers – Rafal Zaremba and Bartek Pieczonka, who always enjoyed fast, action packed arcade games with simple design and instant gratification. For their first game, they decided to merge the challenge and wonder of old-school arcade games with modern day art and music. That's how the idea of a game about a space warrior throwing a Germanic spear came to life.
