BUCKLE UP AS ‘EARL VS. THE MUTANTS’ GEARS UP FOR LAUNCH

Your name is Earl. Your job is mowing down mindless mutants attacking humanity. You start this July.

Salt Lake City, United States — May 28, 2024 | Falling State Inc. is delighted to unveil that its chaotic, top-down action-roguelite, Earl vs. the Mutants, is speeding its way towards a July 11 launch on Steam. Soon enough, players will be able to strap themselves into their death machines, and plow through all manner of mutant menaces in a post-apocalyptic battle for survival. 

Earl vs. the Mutants hurls players into the battered boots of blue-collar mutant assassin, Earl, in the aftermath of a nuclear apocalypse. Putting a unique spin on the traditional roguelite formula, it foregoes dingy dungeon-crawling and steers players towards high-octane action from behind the wheel, as they commandeer an assortment of vehicles to tackle mutant hordes head-on (in many cases heads off). The aim of the game, ultimately, is survival.

Encouraging a more intense, confrontational style of gameplay, Earl vs. the Mutants urges players to throw themselves into waves of formidable foes instead of diligently dodging. Eradicating irradiated baddies will see them unlock randomized upgrades — from mounted weaponry to devastating drones — to help them craft the ultimate car-tastrophe on wheels. Only truly killer rigs will see off the game’s more brutal bosses. 

Following its playable debut at Steam Next Fest earlier this year, the developers have been working hard to overhaul the graphics. With this new lick of paint, the game is now looking and running better than ever before. 

Born from longtime fans of action-roguelites, Earl vs. the Mutants promises players all the excitement of the genre, with additional dollops of devastation. July 11 isn’t one that players will want to miss, so be sure to wishlist today on Steam!
