B.ARK In Triumph This July
I’ve been eagerly waiting to share today’s news for quite some time. B.ARK, the colorful multiplayer SHMUP developed by Tic Toc Games, finally has a release date. It’s slated to release on PC and Switch this July 29th. It had originally been supposed to release a few months earlier, but the devs took the time they needed to deliver the most polished product.
If you’re not familiar with B.ARK, I recently demoed it during E3. Not only is it adorable and colorful, but it allows players to enjoy the game single player or with friends. Mix in various difficulty options and challenging bosses, and I think Tic Toc has a winner on their hands here. Though I may be biased, since I had previously backed their first game, Adventures of Pip.
Those eager for more details can find those below. And stick around til the end to watch the launch date trailer!
Join the ferocious members of Team B.ARK, a squad of animal pilots and Earth’s only hope against the Dark Tide, a menacing armada of cybernetic sea creatures. Soar across the Solar System as one of four formidable pilots: Barker the Dog, Felicity the Cat, Lucio the Bear, and Marv the Rabbit. Master each character’s unique ship, all equipped with their own weapon types and Super abilities.
Combine forces in 4-player couch co-op and unleash Super abilities to create Fusion Combos capable of destroying whole waves of enemies. Power up and battle aquatic mechanical menaces like the ruthless Crush-taceans, the steel-plated Metal Head sharks, and survive the spinning auto-firing onslaught of StarShip 2000!
Face off against impressive screen-filling bosses with the risk-taking attitude of a daredevil dogfighter. Downed players can be picked up by teammates’ ships to enable Side-Car Mode, allowing downed friends to stay in the game. Fly like a team, but don’t forget about the end level tally that compares each pilot’s performance!
Inspired by action-packed Saturday morning cartoons, B.ARK’s gorgeous hand-drawn animations and jovial score make for fast-paced, approachable fun. Play solo or set up a night with friends and explore a charming, nostalgic universe.
