Future Developments for Gonna Catcha
Description
Soul-harvesting Action. No Quarters Necessary.

Assume the role of Pohena Das and Donum Dono, two canine members of the Psychopomp Envoys. Under the orders of Yama, ruler of the Underworld, their duty is to collect and deliver the spirits of the dead to the Underworld for judgement. Their task is not an easy one, as spirits are generally not very cooperative in this endeavour. To make things worse, base creatures known as pretas (or "Hungry ghosts") have a habit of getting in the way. Inspired by classic arcade games from the early Golden Age of arcade games, Gonna Catcha delivers classic gameplay straight from the old arcades.


Two gameplay styles

Alternate playing as Pohena and Donum. When playing as Pohena, your task is to subdue and capture evil sprits while trying to not harm good spirits. However, when playing as Donum, your task is instead collecting the good spirits while avoiding contact with evil spirits.

Local co-op mode

Team up with a friend! Each player takes the role of one of the two psychopomps and both must work together to reap those spirits.

Designed for the Golden Age

Featuring graphics, audio and gameplay inspired by various arcade titles from the early-1980s.

I see it's yet another game similar to Pacman but is there any skill involved if you can just shoot anything that gets in your way? Also looks a bit slow.

I might not get it fully but it looks to simple, it looks like its to easy to win by the trailer... I didn't look to much into this game because I had the feeling I'd be trying to read a different language as I "studyd" this game. But it looks way to dull either way

Not my thing. Graphics are a bit rough (even for that era, just not up to par) and the concept is a bit dull.
