Shift Happens released on PlayStation 4

By | News | No Comments

MUNICH — Feb. 22, 2017 — The award-winning puzzle platformer Shift Happens has wobbled its way onto PlayStation Store finally (It was released on PC and Xbox One about two weeks ago)! Published by Deck13 and developed by Klonk Games, Shift Happens — best played with a friend or significant other — offers players a hearty challenge through 40 levels and four unique worlds filled with traps and puzzles.

Take control of Bismo and Plom, two jelly blob creatures that were joined together in a freak accident. The duo must use their newly-acquired power — the ability to exchange their size and skills seemingly at will — to survive a strange laboratory, overgrown green forests, dry canyons filled with deadly winds, and bitter cold caves. “Teamwork” is the name of the game: When shifting, both characters change sizes simultaneously in a symbiotic relationship. The bigger blob gets smaller — and the smaller blob gets bigger.

  • The bigger blob can throw the smaller blob across chasms, push heavy crates, survive in shallow water, and activate weight-based triggers.
  • The smaller blob can jump higher/farther, move under small barriers, and be “launched” by the bigger blob

You and your partner can earn coins and other collectibles in every level. However, instead of sharing the wealth, it’s possible to “accidentally” cause each other to die — turning your hard-earned coins into a neat little package that’s up for grabs. Will you trust one another and work together — or will you fight for every scrap?

“With Shift Happens, we wanted to recreate our childhood memories of sitting on the couch eating pizza — and playing co-op games for hours on end,” says Robin Kocaurek, co-founder of Klonk Games. “We hope Shift Happens takes players back to a simpler time, when sibling-on-sibling rivalries and sweet retribution were very much a thing!”

Key Features

  • Test your friendship and skills as partners with true cooperative gameplay.
  • Play with friends in either local or online multiplayer modes.
  • Conquer 40+ levels in co-op mode.
  • Complete 30 single-player levels designed specifically for solo players.
  • Discover extra challenges and rewards while playing.

Pricing & Availability
Shift Happens is now available on PlayStation 4. The game is priced at $14.99. A Xbox One and a PC version were released two weeks ago..

Obliteracers now available for Xbox One

By | News | No Comments

Frankfurt, Germany, 26.8.2016 – The waiting has finally come to an end – Obliteracers, the funracer for hobby maniacs, has just been released on Xbox One at the price of 13.99$!

Obliteracers is an award-winning party racer in which up to 16 players have to prove their skills on one screen. The game is less about speed and more about keeping up with other players, using weapons to knock them out of the race. To destroy or to be destroyed – that’s what it’s about. Compete with friends locally or online against others, with dozens of game modifiers to keep things fresh. Gaming nights in your living room just got a bit cozier…and a whole lot louder.
