Roguelike Deck-builder Nitro Kid Deals Kung Fu Blows on PC

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Oct. 18, 2022
Nitro Kid, a roguelike deck-builder from developer Wildboy Studios and publisher tinyBuild squares up on PC via Steam today.

Enter a crispy pixelated world reminiscent of 80’s Miami flair, accenting the neon aesthetic of the time. Nitro Kid offers a throwback arcade feeling combined with a turn-based combat system and modern mechanics for a smooth gameplay experience. An electric synthwave soundtrack brings the world and story to life with more than 30 tracks created exclusively for the game by composers LudoWic (Katana Zero, Second Extinction), Tonebox, Laird Kruger, and Jules Reves.

After winning a bid to clean up a meteorite-leveled city in New Mexico, grubby megacorp INFINITY arrives on scene. Claiming no signs of life, the corrupt company begins experimenting on the missing children to create a generation of super soldiers dubbed as NITRO KIDs. Who will save the adolescent captives and expose INFINITY’s crimes against humanity?

Infiltrate the secret lab as agents L33, J4X, and K31, the only heroes aware of the NITRO KIDs. Engage in grid-based combat to take down groups of more than 50 enemies including guards, robots, and mutants, using a deck-building system to deliver attacks. Lay down a card to drop a flurry of jabs to surrounding enemies or play a full metal jacket to defend against a devastating blow. Carefully craft a variety of different decks with over 250 cards to choose from, able to accommodate dozens of play styles.

“Nitro Kid is a tribute to the classic action movies of the 80ss with our own take on the beloved roguelike deck-building genre,” said Patric Corletto, CEO at Wildboy Studio. “The over the top kung fu action will instantly feel familiar, but the story and gameplay will take players on a wild ride like no other .”

Nitro Kid is available on Windows PC via Steam today for USD $19.99. It will support English, French, German, Spanish (Europe), Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Korean, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese languages.
