Nicalis' 2D action platformer 1001 Spikes will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and through Steam for Mac and Windows PC this upcoming Tuesday, June 3, the developer announced today.
The game will cost $14.99 on all platforms and will be cross-buy compatible on PS4 and Vita, allowing users to pay once for both Sony platform versions. Steam users that already own one of two other Nicalis games, platform adventure Cave Story or physics-based puzzler Night Sky, can buy 1001 Spikes at a $5 loyalty discount.
In 1001 Spikes, players begin as explorer Aban Hawkins searching for his missing archeologist father and the treasure of Ukampa in South America. Players will run through the temple ruins, avoiding deadly traps and triggers and of course, spikes.
1001 Spikes, which the developer notes is "tough-as-nails" difficult, can be played single-player or with up to four players in co-op and versus modes. The game includes more than 100 stages, two dozen unlockable characters and multiple endings.

Nicalis confirmed with Polygon that 1001 Spikes is also slated to launch for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U as well as Xbox One "shortly" after the PlayStation and Steam versions.
