Wacky physics platformer Struggling has been quietly brewing in the background for a little while now and gamescom Opening Night Live had a big surprise: this brand-new game is available to play right now on PC and Nintendo Switch!

This new game from Chasing Rats Games and Frontier Foundry has you trying to control a weird mutant abomination named Troy in an even weirder world. You'll have to outrun enemies, vault over obstacles, and make your way to the end of some seriously devious levels. It won't be easy, though — Troy isn't exactly what we'd call normal.

Take a look at the Struggling Launch Trailer to see this super-strange game in motion:

Play the New Struggling Game By Yourself — or With a Friend

Some of these tasks you see in the trailer might be too tough for you to complete, but it's not all bad news — you'll be able to unlock new powers as you progress through the game including slowing time, detaching your arms, and more.

Even better, you won't have to play Struggling alone, either. You can bring a friend along to play this game in co-op with a somewhat strange system: each player takes control of one of the fleshy arms of Troy. You'll have to be able to move in sync with your friend to complete some of the trickier challenges before you.

If Struggling seems like your kind of jam, you can buy it for PC via Steam and for the Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo eShop right now at the price of $14.99 or your regional equivalent.
