Struggling is a co-op platformer with wacky physics. It is coming to consoles next month.
Struggling comes from publisher Frontier Foundry in collaboration with the Montreal-based developer Chasing Rats Games.
An outrageous platformer
Struggling may be played single-player, but the experience sought by the game’s developers, Chasing Rats Games, is to play the game in co-op mode, where both players can control the game. Our meaty hero, Troy, embarks on an amazing journey to locate legendary Abomination Gods. You’ll have to outrun voracious rats, ride a dirt bike, and vault over pools of unmentionable filth.
In local co-op mode, use a partner’s squishy appendages to take on the ultimate challenge, or take entire control over Troy’s limbs with your own two hands. In any case, be prepared to put your coordination abilities to the test as you solve puzzles in more strange scenarios.
A really bizarre art style
Struggling‘s eye-catching graphical design blends elements of humor and horror to immerse players in a funny but frightening environment. Our lanky hero has to solve progressively difficult physics-based puzzles utilizing momentum and inertia to swing across four aesthetically distinct realms. Explore terrifying labs, dangerous canyons, and even delirious hyper-dreams.
Troy, like every self-respecting scientific experiment, is a constantly evolving character. As they go through more difficult situations, players gain access to a variety of game-changing abilities. These additional abilities include the capacity to slow time in order to avoid fast-moving dangers, detachable limbs that Troy may use to creepily crawl about, and the ability to graft its appendages onto the surroundings.
Struggling is already available on PC via Steam and Nintendo Switch. It’s coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 8, 2021. It is backward compatible with PS5 and Xbox Series X.
