APE OUT BREAKING OUT OF THE ZOO THIS SUMMER
- Coming to PC and Console, Play the Trailer Today (No, You Can Actually Play It)
Brooklyn - Independent developer Gabe Cuzzillo and primal game label Devolver Digital have announced Ape Out, hitting PC and consoles this summer. Fans of video games and apes and video game apes can actually play the Ape Out reveal trailer – a playable trailer, if you will – via Steam by visiting http://www.apeoutgame.com starting …now.
Ape Out is a wildly intense and colorfully stylized smash ‘em up about primal escape, rhythmic violence and frenetic jazz. Build up nearly unstoppable momentum and use your captors as both weapons and shields to crush everyone on your procedurally generated path to freedom.
“Since I was a little boy one of my hobbies has been to secretly set zoo animals free and watch them run rampant, killing their captors in the most violent ways possible,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “Ape Out captures that child-like sense of wonder in a very profound and meaningful way and also adds a drum beat.”
Ape Out is playable – the game, not the trailer – at PAX East this weekend in the Devolver Digital booth if you can survive the harsh cold that is Boston. For more information, visit apeoutgame.com and follow developer Gabe Cuzzillo the clever handle @GabeCuzzillo on Twitter.
I liked the first one. The cover system works okay in elimination deathmatch. I'm not a fan of sticky cover as a rule though. Especially now that many games have done contextual auto cover that works. (30 minutes ago)
I guess so? It's been a long time since I played one to be fair (39 minutes ago)
Yea.. that's what Gears of War is. (1 Hour ago)
also GOW looked interesting from some of the competitive matches I saw. But lots of weird sticky cover play (1 Hour ago)
just started playing the Forest today and sunk too much time with my buddy. WOOF that game is fun (2 Hours ago)
New enemy types, namely the Snatchers, Pouncers, and Carriers were aggressively unfun to fight. Still a good game, not a great game by any means. 7/10 (3 Hours ago)
The new characters mostly uninteresting and their chatter during the game annoying at times. Marcus/Cole/Baird was very fun. Giant robots super fun. Wind mechanic way overused. (3 Hours ago)
