Speed Brawl, a fast-paced action title that mixes racing and fighting game elements, will be headed to PC and consoles in the Summer of 2018 according to publisher Kongregate.
In the late 1800s, invaders from the moon very nearly took over the world. Mankind managed to beat them back, and this new race of moon monsters quickly became a worker class for British society. Unfortunately, the greater number of alien workers meant that people had an awful lot of free time. The middle and lower classes were getting a bit rambunctious, to say the least, and this gave rise to the ultimate in bug-stomping bloodsports: the Speed Brawl! Have a look at the game's teaser trailer to get a feel for the setting:
Speed Brawl will be part fighting game, part racing game, and part platformer, all wrapped up into one neat little package. Momentum is key to staying alive and building up your combat power, so the player who stays on the move is the player who will do the most damage! Players can choose from one of six unique brawlers and work their way through the campaign by themselves or with a friend in both online and split-screen multiplayer. If you'd like to get a bit more competitive with your buddies, you can battle it out in the game's leaderboards with over 50 different events and races to complete.
If Speed Brawl sounds like your kind of jam, you won't have to wait too long to get your hands on it - it will be heading to PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and publisher Kongregate's new Kartridge platform sometime in the Summer of 2018. In the meantime, you can head on over to the game's Steam Store page and add it to your Wishlist. Be sure to check out the game's official website, too!
