When you think of hedgehogs and video games, Sonic is typically the first thing that comes to mind. Well, Trip the Ark Fantastic has a hedgehog of a brainier sort — and he can kick off a revolution.
Inspired by the likes of Animal Farm and similar tales, Trip the Ark Fantastic explores a society populated by animals that is on the cusp of changing forever. Just check out this Teaser Trailer to get a feel for the game:
You'll be playing as Charles, the most adorable of scholars. The King asks Charles to find the mysterious Ark, and the forthcoming journey will see you having to make choices between your passion for science and your loyalty to the throne.
Charles can also keep up with the shrewd fox Philippe, the mighty boar (and member of the Royal Guard) André, or King Lav himself. There's a lot more to the game, though!
What you do in Trip the Ark Fantastic
As Charles searches for the legendary Ark, he'll be able to put the scientific method to use. First, he must use scientific equipment to measure things. He might also need to make use of different languages to speak with other animals. Once that's done, he'll need to research to reach a conclusion.
After gathering data, conversing, and researching, it's time to submit a report on your findings. This will go into the Kingdom's newspaper, and whatever you find can and will influence the rest of the Kingdom.
It seems that Trip the Ark Fantastic is mixing a whole bunch of different genres into an entirely new and interesting package. Unfortunately, that's all we know about the game for now; no release date, price, or platforms have been announced. In the meantime, you can keep up with the game by keeping an eye on their official website.
