Updated on October 20th, at 12:08am: If you were wondering how a platformer can be gross and charming at the same time, you can learn now through Eggggg‘s vomit-based platforming.
Its selling point may not be particularly inspiring, but Hyper Games’ upcoming title Eggggg is looking pretty good. Oh, and it’ll be on iOS and Android later this month.
Eggggg is a game about vomit. No, seriously, it’s about vomit. This super gross yet somewhat endearing two-touch platformer is inspired by games such as the Super Mario series, where the worlds are full of secrets to explore and discover.
On their forum page, the developers wrote “Eggggg has lots of hand-crafted levels in several different worlds, each with their own mechanics and visuals. We try to respect the players’ time and want to have fewer levels that all feel unique and interesting, rather than 100s of levels that feel like more of the same.” Whereas some of you guys may not like that idea, it’s definitely a nice touch to pay more attention to the details rather than the amount shoved into the game. Quality over quantity, and all that jazz.
The Spanish illustrators, Brosmind, did a bang-up job with the visuals as they feel almost reminiscent of Adventure Time, finished off nice and cleanly in bright-coloured levels. Well, before it all gets coated in various forms of luminous ‘the morning after’ vomit.
Eggggg is coming to the App Store on October 20th with Google Play’s debut happening on October 27th. We’re still not completely sure whether the game will be free-to-play or premium, but we’ll update you when we know.
