We are super excited to announce that our friends over at Happy Badger Studio out of St. Louis, Mo are set to release a new game called SmuggleCraft in Spring of 2016. SmuggleCraft will be released on 4 of the largest platforms PC, Mac, Linux and PS4. From the images and short teaser it looks like the world has a very unique look and feel. I found myself quickly falling in love with the geometric look of the landscape along with the lovely color pallet that is being used and hope that those things make it to the final version of the game.
SmuggleCraft is a quest-based hovercraft game in which players smuggle contraband, improve their hovercraft, and run from the authorities as they discover the incredible stories of the inhabitants of the unforgiving and troubled world Dirah. The game features randomly generated tracks, fully upgradeable hovercrafts with hundreds of combinations, quest-based missions complete with illegal contraband and high-speed chases, and a branching story with alternate endings that change based on player choice.
Any one of the list of features that are set to be in this game would be enough. With all of them together they might have a real hit classic on there hands. The idea of a story that has different endings depending oh the choices you make in game always gets me excited. Check out the full list of features below.
- Randomly generated tracks that provide a unique series of driving conditions for every player
- Fully upgradeable hovercraft with hundreds of combinations
- Quest-based missions, complete with illegal contraband and high-speed chases
- Immersive branching narrative with multiple endings based on player choice
- Stylized abstract 3D environments
- Original Soundtrack by Bravendary merges classical with 80s synth pop
Ready to finally make a game you could sink your teeth into, Happy Badger Studio decided to question what's typically expected of a racing game, and make something totally unique. SmuggleCraft is a racing game that not only feels great to play, but also gives players a greater sense of purpose. SmuggleCraft is set on a politically divided world in which the player must decide who to help in order to get the upgrades they need, even if it means doing a favor for someone with questionable intentions.
Look out for more on SmuggleCraft once we have been able to play it!
