Independent developer Triple Scale Games has announced that party animals can pre-order its upcoming eight-player couchplay and online game Save Your Nuts for Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam today. Squirrels, dogs and everyone in between can try the title right now via a free demo available on each platform, except for the Nintendo Switch (April 16). Save Your Nuts will bust out April 16 for $14.99 USD/£11.99 GBP.
Save Your Nuts’ free demo for Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam features a tutorial teaching newcomers how to play solo with bots or with a group of up to eight local frenemies. It also allows fans to check out two of the game’s exciting arenas, the park and the garden, and the title’s Capture the Nuts mode, where an acorn is dropped and critters fight to nipple on it.
The full release of Save Your Nuts will see up to eight players compete locally, online or against challenging AI opponents across three modes and 10 different arenas ranging from soccer fields, basketball courts, waterfalls and ice lakes to castles, train stations, ships and outer space. Apart from Capture the Nuts, the game will include Thieves, a war to steal multiple enemy’s nuts while protecting your own team’s, and Battle, a fight to determine who will be the last animal to keep their nuts intact. Maps will be filled with hazards and power-ups that can change the tide of battle faster than fans can crack open a nut.
Don’t let Save Your Nuts’ cute cast fool you: the game will be accessible and easy to enjoy, but hard to master. Challenging AI and shifting environments will ensure that no real-life get-together is ever boring. Fans will even be able to take the party online via Steam’s Remote Play Together feature, which will allow up to seven friends who don’t own the game to join the fun from their own abode. That’s right: everyone you know could become a fellow nut-buster simply by selecting the Remote Play Together option on your friend list.
Solo players won’t be left out, as each of Save Your Nuts’ three unique modes will be endlessly replayable. That’s not to mention that there’ll be a ton of outfits to dress up your squirrels, dogs, racoons, beavers and more.
