Epic Loon Brings Back Beloved Couch Co-Op
Here are a few takeaways surrounding the premise and mechanics of the upcoming indie title:
- Teaming up with up to four players in local co-op, players will take on the role of the vile alien species born from the coveted VHS cleaner tape determined to wipe out the collection of quirky renditions of VHS classics, such as Nosferatu, Jurassic Park and Godzilla.
- Two separate gameplay modes will have players either teaming up for a co-op adventure or duking it out in competitive ‘Battle Mode’ across various classic film settings.
- Revitalizing the local couch co-op experience brings forth a vintage style of gameplay to help match the retro ambience.
- With over 350 levels to master and unique game modes like Hardcore difficulty and Speedrun settings, players will find themselves amidst a bizarre action platformer overflowing with content.
Epic Loon will come crashing down on the classic VHS scene after the start of summer on June 28th, 2018. The Switch, Xbox One and PS4 are all seeing console releases of the alien swarming co-op platformer, as well as a launch on PC.
Stay tuned for more on the classic film destroying couch co-op title, Epic Loon, as we near the official release next month.
