Get your Arabica beans ready, because Mega Cat Studios has announced that it will bring its side-scrolling brawler Coffee Crisis to PC and Xbox One later this month. The expanded versions of the game will include new features such as a random difficulty Death Metal Mode and some new heavy metal music by Mitch Foster and AJ NOE.
From the game’s official Steam page:
Coffee Crisis is an arcade-style beat ’em up that pays homage to the nineties era of classic arcade and 16-bit brawlers. Play solo or join up with a friend to fight across eight unique locations ranging from your Coffee House HQ to the far reaches of outer space. Go up against an army of wild alien enemies, and the humans that have been taken over by them using weapons, special moves, suplexes, and coffee!
The Smurglian race has come to Earth and they’re not leaving until they steal our four most prized commodities: our metal music, the best coffee, cat videos, and all of the WiFi. Challenge them through unique and innovative levels inspired by real-life areas. Originally released on a retro platform that needs new games like Earthlings need WiFi, you can now take the fight to your PC. Join Black Forge Coffeehouse baristas Nick and Ashley, two galaxy gladiators called to arms to stop this madness and remove the Smurglian threat from Earth.
The Smurgliens can have all of the Rap Metal and Country Pop that they want… but if you don’t help our heroes fend off against the alien-assimilated elderly, bros, cowgirls, and meat head bouncers, they might end up going after good music!
Originally a Kickstarter project that was released on the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, the team at Mega Cat Studios will finally release a modern-day version of a retro modern day creation of… well, it’s complicated, but you can still purchase the original Genesis cartridge on the Mega Cat Studios website. We’re super excited to see what these dedicated baristas can brew to shut these aliens up! Stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
