Today, Muse Games announced that its upcoming beat-em-up Hamsterdam is up on Kickstarter today. The campaign will run until late September with a funding goal of $8,000. If funded, there will be a tentative release date of March 2019 for the Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation Vita, and mobile devices.
The once peaceful town of Hamsterdam is in danger! The vile chinchilla Marlo and his Rodent Gang are wreaking havoc and terrorizing the town. Enter our hamster hero, Pimm, who must harness his mightiest martial arts powers and kick tail through district after district, on a heart-pounding journey to take down the Rodent Gang, save his grandfather, and restore peace to Hamsterdam.
Hamsterdam is a game where rhythm and precision meets some good old fashioned button mashing. With classic arcade brawling mechanics, and swing, tap and swipe martial arts combos, the power of Hamster-fu is in your paws!
“To craft the vision of Hamsterdam, the team at Muse Games are continually inspired by 80’s kung-fu movies, the ground-breaking perspectives of The Wire, the satirical depiction of Amsterdam in the famed Pulp Fiction scene, and the beautiful visuals and humour of Ratatouille.” said Derek Chow from Muse Games “As you can probably guess we’re having a lot of fun with Hamsterdam, and are looking forward to getting it out into the world for players to enjoy too!”
The Kickstarter has multiple tiers, of which $10 will net you a copy of the game (with a limited $8 early bird tier available as well). Check out the trailer above, and stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
