Cartoon-Inspired Co-Op Shmup B.ARK’s New Trailer and Launch Date Debuted at GameSpot’s Play For All
Suit up solo or in teams of up to four in couch co-op on Nintendo Switch™ and PC via Steam
BURBANK, Calif. – June 19, 2021 – B.ARK, the interstellar animal adventure retro shoot ‘em up from Tic Toc Games featured in a Nintendo™ Showcase early last year, launches into space on Nintendo Switch™ and PC via Steam July 29. Play B.ARK’s new demo today via Steam.
Join the ferocious members of Team B.ARK, a squad of animal pilots and Earth’s only hope against the Dark Tide, a menacing armada of cybernetic sea creatures. Soar across the Solar System as one of four formidable pilots: Barker the Dog, Felicity the Cat, Lucio the Bear, and Marv the Rabbit. Master each character’s unique ship, all equipped with their own weapon types and Super abilities.
Combine forces in 4-player couch co-op and unleash Super abilities to create Fusion Combos capable of destroying whole waves of enemies. Power up and battle aquatic mechanical menaces like the ruthless Crush-taceans, the steel-plated Metal Head sharks, and survive the spinning auto-firing onslaught of StarShip 2000!
Face off against impressive screen-filling bosses with the risk-taking attitude of a daredevil dogfighter. Downed players can be picked up by teammates’ ships to enable Side-Car Mode, allowing downed friends to stay in the game. Fly like a team, but don’t forget about the end level tally that compares each pilot’s performance!
Inspired by action-packed Saturday morning cartoons, B.ARK’s gorgeous hand-drawn animations and jovial score make for fast-paced, approachable fun. Play solo or set up a night with friends and explore a charming, nostalgic universe.
“We grew up loving co-op games and space shooters,” said Abraham Morales, co-director, Tic Toc Games. “We want to deliver both an accessible yet frenetic shooter gameplay with characters you’ll love.”
B.ARK releases on Nintendo Switch™ and PC via Steam in North America, Europe, Great Britain, and Russia in English for $9.99. For more information on B.ARK, visit the official website, follow Tic Toc Games on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook.
