Doetinchem, The Netherlands – Indie developer Joost van Dongen and Engine Software announced that a free demo of Proun+ has gone live on the Nintendo eShop today, so it takes away the single argument anyone could still have to not give playing Proun+ a shot. Furthermore, the game receives a permanent price cut, starting today.
The demo consists of four tracks, all playable in immersive 3D. Levels will use the default relaxed mode which will give players a taste of the game’s visuals and gameplay. Proun+ will drop in price from respectively $6.99 / € 5.99 / £5.39 to the new price-point of $4.99 / €3.99 / £3.50. For pricing info in other territories, please check the local Nintendo eShop.
“With this free demo and price drop we want to lower the barrier of entry for Nintendo 3DS players and let them experience the beauty that is Proun+,” said Ivo Wubbels, CEO of Engine Software. “Both Joost and I are extremely proud of our work and believe that anyone who has seen the game in motion will be instantly hooked.”
Proun+ was launched last year to widespread critical acclaim for its fast paced gameplay, outstanding visuals and jazzy soundtrack. It was voted as one of the top mobile games of 2014 by review aggregator Metacritic. This is what the press had to say about Proun+.
Based on its predecessor, Proun+ is the extended, improved and enriched edition of the famous multi award winning indie hit game Proun. Proun+ has been built from the ground up, featuring all new levels, music and gameplay.
Proun+ is an art-inspired racing game that lets players race a ball on obstacle-filled, tubular tracks. Each course has been inspired by famous works of modern art from artists such as Mondriaan and Kandinsky. The game offers five speed difficulties, making the game suitable for casual and core players alike. The levels are accompanied by catchy jazz-rock music that is especially written for Proun+.
The original Proun for PC, developed by Joost van Dongen, was received with much critical acclaim and scored Dutch Game Awards for “Best Digital Media” and “Best original Game Design”. The game is so highly regarded in Western Europe that it is frequently displayed in modern art galleries alongside works of Mondriaan and Andy Warhol.
