Never Give Up is a death-defying, twitch-based platformer that lets you see what you’re made of — in more ways than one — with vicious traps and hazards designed to turn you into goo. The biggest instalment in the franchise yet, Never Give Up features over 150 stages of buzzsaws, guided missiles, giant rhino mechs, and huge boss battles.
Success only ups the challenge — every time you beat a level, another element is layered in to make it even harder. Its treacherous platforming may make you rage, but with a “Give Up” button to save you, even death is a blast.
It’s packed with stuff speedrunners will love, including built-in leaderboards, ghost racing, and splits timers for tracking and perfecting your route with each iteration. There are also tons of costumes, collectibles, secrets, and jokes to discover, made even better with the voice talent of Game Grumps’ Egoraptor (Arin Hanson) and colorful carnage illustrated by Jimp.
Never Give Up is rated T (Teen) by the ESRB. For more information, visit https://armorgamesstudios.com/games/never-give-up. The game will be available for $14.99 through the Nintendo eShop, Steam, and GOG.com.

No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It’s just the player, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing weapons off fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and manoeuvre through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.
With its stylised graphics, the game finally adds something new to the FPS genre. Superhot’s polished, minimalist visual language helps players focus on what’s most important – the fluid gameplay and the cinematic beauty of the fight.
The game took thirty months to make, meaning thousands of hours were put into development and design. From its humble origins in the 7 Day FPS game jam, through a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, to an array of awards and nominations from industry experts, Superhot is a labour of love by its independent, dedicated team and thousands of backers from all around the globe.
It has the following features:
• Endless Mode – how long can you last against unyielding waves of enemies?
• Challenge Mode – take on Superhot with your bare hands, no restarts, timed runs, and more.
• Extras – delve further into Superhot with mini-games, ASCII art, and [redacted].
The game is available now on the Nintendo Switch eShop for R150.
