Thunderful and Dejima have unveiled a new deluxe version of roguelite indie firefighter, Firegirl: Hack ‘n Splash Rescue DX. The game is making its way onto consoles on 22nd June, 2022. The PC version of the game will be updated to the DX version on the same day.

Firegirl: Hack ‘n Splash Rescue DX is a roguelite platformer. Players take on the role of a young fire rescue officer breathing new life into her rundown local fire station. Armed with your axe and high-pressure fire hose that also doubles as a jetpack, you must respond to emergency calls, bringing you to dangerous procedurally generated blazes across the city.

When Firegirl arrives on the scene she has three minutes to save all the civilians caught in the blaze. You must extinguish fire monsters to buy more time as you battle to get the job done.

Thanks to these tweaks, a play style focused on extinguishing enemies is now more viable. Players will receiving more additional time for extinguishing fiery foes. Exits are also easier to discover, and water refills will be more readily available.

Between missions you can hang out at the Firehouse. Here, you can upgrade your equipment and hire new staff to make you more effective. You’ll need all the help you can get to survive in this fun, thrilling and tricky roguelite!

“The original release of Firegirl on PC gave us invaluable feedback on how we could improve the experience significantly ahead of a console release. With the completely reworked and rebalanced version of the game that is Firegirl: Hack ‘n Splash Rescue DX, we’ve kept everything that was great about the original version and reworked the wrinkles to provide a definitive version of the game. Look forward to it on June 22nd.”
