Get ready to play the deadliest game of pinball — Vodeo Games' first annual release has been revealed as Beast Breaker, a game where you play as a mouse who fights gigantic monsters with the power of pinball. No, really.
In Beast Breaker, you take on the role of a tiny warrior mouse named Skipper. Skipper is charged with protecting people from giant monsters and they do it in a rather unusual way — they yeet themself directly at the creatures, bouncing off of their body parts like a pinball. Check it out in action!
Yes, you're launching yourself at gigantic creatures like a pinball, but there's a little more to this game than it first seems. You'll be able to pick from a variety of different attacks and approaches as you take on these massive monsters threatening the populace.
It looks like there will be more to the game beyond the combat, too. A single screenshot on the game's official website shows a hexagonal map with a crafting button and companions, so it looks like you won't be going into battle alone, either.
Beast Breaker will be the first game from Vodeo Games, a new indie studio that is focusing on annual releases of "small, intimate games that you can curl up with and completely lose yourself in." Notably, the Vodeo Games team includes Asher Vollmer, one of the designers of the smash hit mobile game Threes.
When is the Beast Breaker Release Date?
The Beast Breaker release date will be sometime in the Summer of 2021; unfortunately, no specific release date has been revealed just yet.
For now, you can look forward to playing Beast Breaker on PC via the Epic Games Store and on the Nintendo Switch. You can learn more about it on its official website.
