Anthropomorphic Adventure Button City Arrives on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac Aug. 10
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – July 14, 2021 – Button City, an adorably colorful narrative-driven adventure about friendship and community from Subliminal Gaming, will bring the fight against evil corporations to PlayStation 5™, Xbox Series X|S™, Nintendo Switch™ and Steam on Tuesday, Aug. 10, 2021 in partnership with WINGS Interactive. As revealed in the Wholesome Games showcase, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are also in development.
Meet Fennel, a young fox and the newest kit in town. After arriving in the charming Button City with his mom, Fennel begins exploring his new home — especially the local arcade frequented by the town’s welcoming anthropomorphic youths.
Help Fennel fall in with the Fluff Squad, a crew of arcade-loving kids, as they spend a memorable week competing against rival teams while also hatching schemes to save their beloved hangout from Peppermint Pepperbottom, a greedy fat cat who puts profits over people.
Embark on a narrative-driven experience following Fennel’s journey from shy fox to arcade whiz as the Fluff Squad work to keep the lights on in Button City’s only arcade. Compete in Gobabots, a 4v4 action game that rewards the top team with a spectacular prize. Enjoy your time in town playing arcade minigames including rhythm and racing titles. Solve puzzles for locals and forge long-lasting friendships, collecting cute new outfits along the way.
Button City features vibrant low-poly aesthetics, quirky characters, and a whimsical atmosphere to enjoy alongside puzzles and quests that speak to the timeless experiences of growing up and fighting for what’s important.
“In Button City, you might be trying to save the day, but the characters’ bonds are the real star of the show,” said Ryan Woodward, Lead Programmer, Subliminal Gaming. “We’re thrilled to welcome visitors to Button City and introduce them to its colorful inhabitants when Button City comes to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and Steam this August.”
Subliminal Gaming counts among the first batch of titles selected for funding by WINGS Interactive, an investment fund focused on indie games from studios with women and marginalized genders as prominent members of development teams.
Button City will come to Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and Steam worldwide on Aug. 10 as well as PlayStation 5 everywhere except Japan, which will still receive the game in Q3 2021 on a date to be announced later. It supports the English, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese languages.
