Award-winning Indie Reveals New Gameplay, Mixing Pulpy Filmmaking with Time-Bending Puzzle Platforming

LYON, France (August 9, 2023)—Today developer Chanko Studios and publisher AMC Games announced that It’s a Wrap! will be arriving later this summer on PC, followed soon after by a touch screen-enhanced version on the Nintendo Switch eShop. The 80s-cinema-inspired puzzle platformer has been selected for Gamescom’s Indie Arena Booth, where the team will exhibit their latest demo from August 23-27.

Watch the It’s a Wrap! Nintendo Switch Trailer, showcasing never-before-seen gameplay and Hollywood-esque movie sets filled with a variety of brain-teasing puzzles and platforming problems to solve: 

It’s a Wrap! is part puzzle, part 2D platforming, but one-hundred-and-ten percent 80s nostalgia inducing. Players take up the roles of director and actor, designing the scenes with a unique “timeline editing” mechanic, then jumping into the action as a movie star… to somewhat disastrous consequences. Talk about a double threat! 

No need to queue up the play-off music—Chanko Studios has perfected the art of acceptance speeches while winning awards from festivals around the globe. The game won the Critic’s Choice Award at Indie Game Fest 2023, Excellence in Design from BitSummit 2022, Most Innovative Newcomer at the Creative Gaming Awards 2022, and the award for Most Fun at Indie X 2022.

More details on the game’s release will be revealed during the Future Games Show at Gamescom on August 23, 2023; set a reminder here. For puzzle connoisseurs itching to test their wits with its one-of-a-kind game mechanic, It’s a Wrap! has a playable Steam demo available now.
