Get your retro moneybags ready, as Devolver Digital has recently announced that Mega Cat Studios’ newest simulation title Fork Parker’s Crunch Out is available now on a shiny new Super Nintendo cartridge. In addition, only 500 units are available for purchase, with 100% of Digital Devolver’s profits going to Take This, a gaming-centered charity focused on tackling issues of mental health within communities.
Devolver Digital CFO, Fork Parker, enjoyed a life of luxury and spent his days watching the profits roll in from the lucrative indie game publishing industry. However, an upstart new publishing label threatens to take his beloved market share, forcing the handsome executive to take matters into his own hands and start ‘motivating’ his game developers by any means necessary. Meaningless elements like “artistic integrity” and “engaging gameplay” are out the window as efficiency and deadlines now dictate the studio’s every move – welcome to crunch time.
- Furious task management and questionable motivation tactics are your tools. Coffee, discipline, and shock treatment are all in play if your team slips off their production schedule.
- Spend your profits from each game wisely – do you invest in a new espresso machine to keep the your dev team happy, or buy some winged wingtips to help you zip around the office?
- Deploy strategic power-ups, like unpaid interns working for exposure and mandatory overtime to stay on track and hit that release date.
- Take executive action in exciting and intense mini-games to keep the office in order. When the internet drops out or your beloved wife calls in, only Fork and his pet piggy bank, Pork Farker, can save the game and the bottom line.
Devolver Digital is donating 100% of their profits from sales to Take This to support their ongoing efforts to raise awareness and combat mental health issues.
