Mighty Honkin’ Feathered Stranger!
It’s always a great day when something you’ve been following for months gets a release date announced. That particular game is none other than Mighty Goose. An old school, run and gun platformer with style to spare. And when the titular hero is none other than a goose in a mech suit? All the better.
But perhaps you’ve not as familiar with Mighty Goose. Then buckle up, cause you’re in for a treat! It’s the first title by Blastmode, and it’s also being published by the good folks at Playism. Better yet, Mighty Goose is slated to release on pretty much everything – PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5 and Xbox One. As for the release date, it’s set for June 5th, 2021.
Below are some more details for the upcoming action adventure:
In this epic adventure, Mighty Goose brings the fight to the Void King. Gun your way through hordes of minions and mechanized machines under the evil conquerer’s command. Free Commander Vark and friends to form your own little squad in the fight to free the galaxy.
Our goose hero might not win a footrace, but his accuracy and wide arsenal of weapons send his enemies packing for the south. Preen invasive space creatures from high-security prisons, dangerous deserts, and ancient civilizations all designed in high-quality pixel art by Richard Lems (KUNAI) with inspiration from classic and beloved run-and-gun games. A high-energy soundtrack by Dominic Ninmark (Blazing Chrome) complements the egg-splosive action.
“Combining the goose character with something as action-packed as Metal Slug seemed like a really funny idea.” said Richard Lems, founder of Blastmode. “Mighty Goose is a modern take on the throwback run-and-gun of the 90’s, combining funny characters and crazy encounters with solid gameplay and fluidity of a modern game.”
I think Mighty Goose looks delightfully absurd and fondly frenetic. Be sure to stay tuned to HPP for more indie game news, and be sure to check out the trailer below!
