Hard as nails, Meat-Boy-esque platformer launches next week.
The very definition of a hardcore platformer, BOB WAS HUNGRY demands the utmost precision from players looking to help bobs in their interplanetary search for food. If you watched the trailer (above), you probably noticed that the game is harder than 99% of the platformers out there :)
Developed by Shorebound Studios, Bob Was Hungry launches Wednesday, August 19 on Steam (Windows only for now).
In Bob Was Hungry, players take on the role of a particularly hungry bob -- and it’s up to them to find the meal that will finally satisfy their bob’s insatiable appetite.
They will need to scale plateaus, dive into caves, explore the Arctic, island hop -- you name it -- in search of yummy food. Traversing environments may require dealing with spinning saw blades, climbing spiked walls, jumping through laser grids, and traveling through gravity wells without being being torn to pieces (and thus making a beeline back to the beginning of the map). Collecting each level’s condiment makes bobs happy, and it also allows players to record their time and unlock each map’s insanely harder counterpart. (Disclaimer: Not for the faint of heart!)
A single-player mode is available, but Bob Was Hungry also supports up to eight players in each of the game’s four frantic multiplayer modes
FYI, we have no idea what Bob actually is. Check out the video, this one could be a sleeper...
