Introducing Lichtspeer, a game developed by an indie studio by the name of Lichthund that aims to celebrate a varied mix of Germanic culture. Lichtspeer places you in a land filled with Penguin Vikings, Wurst Zombies, and Hipster Ice Giants where your main objective is to fight and survive, all for the amusement of the gods.
If that isn’t interesting enough there’s more. Your hero is bestowed with incredible powers and his weapon of choice is the god powered Lichtspeer, which is basically a light saber turned into a spear. Color me curious.
Co-founder of Lichthund Studios, Bartek Pieczonka warns us via PlayStation Blog that this is not an easy game by any means; “The throwing mechanic might seem simple at first, but with the speed of the game, the number of different enemies, and ever-changing level design, you will be cursing a lot. That being said, we put extra effort into making Lichtspeer hard, but not frustrating — making your progress satisfying and fun.”
I for one am very intrigued by this game and can’t wait to take down some Ice Giants with my mighty Lichtspeer. Lichtspeer is coming to a PC, PS4, and Vita near you this September. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think about the almighty Lichtspeer in the comments section.
