Get ready to run… erm, jog with Space Mace and Graffiti Games’ newest party title Joggernauts, as the game will be released on Steam and Nintendo Switch on October 11. The game will retail at $14.99 digitally as players will have to take turns jogging as a team of alien athletes across a multitude of different obstacles.
In Joggernauts players must switch the corresponding color auto-running jogger to the front of the line of characters in order to match the color of enemies, obstacles, prizes and pickups in the level. Failure to do so can result in death, which reduces the overall shared number of lives for the team. In order to finish the level and collect all the trophies for victory, teams must work together and time their jumps and switches perfectly. Players can also take on the challenges individually with the uniquely designed single-player mode, where one player simultaneously controls two different colored characters.
“Players succeed or fail as a group, either successfully crossing the finish line, or failing and restarting together,” said Zachary Johnson, Co-Founder of Space Mace. “The key is communication and paying attention. Do this well and players can not only finish a level together, or by themselves, but also collect all the trophies to unlock bonus levels.”
