“Armed and Gelatinous: Couch Edition” Dashes to Victory on PlayStation 5|4, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and Steam 2 May

Plop down on the couch and blast blobs with buddies in arcadey multiplayer party shooter

LOS ANGELES – 4 April, 2024 – Armed and Gelatinous: Couch Edition, the frenzied multiplayer arcade space shooter from Three Flip Studios featuring a multitude of blob-based minigames, blows away the competition on PlayStation 5|4, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and Steam on Thursday, 2 May, 2024.

Go trigger-happy in all-out blob warfare as one of four adorable gelatinous blobs. Absorb an arsenal of 16 lethal weapons including laser rifles, rocket launchers, and melee blades to gain mass, increase health, and become Unblobable. Customize each battle mode with modified loadouts and more in Death Match, Time Match, Stock Match, and the new crowd favorite, Combo King. 

Keep in mind bigger does not always mean better! Smaller wobbly blob bodies move with unmatched agility and can launch supercharged dash attacks that deal a lethal blow to even the bulkiest of blobs. Amongst the carnage, look out for scrumptious space tacos to heal up and head back into battle. Size and wits matter in this fun-filled cosmic showdown of epic proportions.

Dart around in zero gravity with a host of hectic party game modes. Gobble galactic tacos as quickly as you can in Food Fight to reign supreme or sharpen your skills in the Blob Dojo, a chaotic sandbox mode for 1-4 players. Feeling sporty? Team up and throw down in a plethora of sports mini-games including Blob Soccer, Dodgeball, and Football. With such a vast array of game modes, there’s truly something for everyone.

Players will be delighted as they unlock new weapons, items, game modes, and additional rulesets. Plus, every weapon and item can be toggled on or off for even more personalization. Kick the party into full gear with a round of RPGs only or go full Pirate Mode with just swords and cannons. The possibilities are endless! No friends? No problem! Players can test their skills and find out if they have what it takes to defeat the AI with 5 CPU difficulties to choose from. Some extra secret surprises await discovery. 

Armed and Gelatinous: Couch Edition features the voice talent of Brian Sommer (Diablo III and League of Legends) as well as the work of legendary sound designer Jory Prum (The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Among the Sleep). Beyond recording the game’s SFX, Jory also fully mastered the game’s more than 20 eclectic jazz and retro music tracks in collaboration with some truly stellar musicians including Chris Huelsbeck (R-Type, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron), Paul O’Rourke (Psychonauts 2, Broken Age), and Zac Zinger (Street Fighter V, Final Fantasy XV).

“We’re beyond stoked to be releasing our game on consoles after many years spent in development and over a hundred-thousand quarters spent in the arcade,” said Rob Howland, co-founder of Three Flip Studios. “It was hugely fulfilling for Anthony and I to build our own cabs and watch our game take off in arcade bars across the country and we’re absolutely thrilled to be bringing the magic home for families to enjoy together on the couch.”

Armed and Gelatinous: Couch Edition drops on PlayStation 5|4, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and Steam on Thursday, 2 May, 2024, for $14.99 USD. The game will support English, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Spanish, French, German and Italian languages.
