Yes you like it party games on your Nintendo Switch, there’s a newcomer coming to the system later this year that puts a comic twist on a genre that isn’t typically known for its hilarious laughs. If you like games like that Too cooked but they find them missing when it comes to Tommy guns and mythical gods that do destruction and horror, Astrolabe Interactive Sacrifice your Friends it might just be what you’re looking for.
Combining Lovecraftian horror and cartoon styles, Sacrifice Your Friends is described as a 1-4 ‘party brawler’ player who was born on Kickstarter before being picked up by RedDeerGames for Xbox and Switch (the game is already available at Steam Early Access, as well).
If you’re having trouble figuring out this mashup of Lovecraft X Chibi, check out the announcement above and you’ll be up to date. RedDeer says the game will feature Lovecraft locations like Mountain of Madness and the Nameless City, plus local and online modes and a mode for a player where you can explore the world without other people disturbing you. The cross-platform game is also included, so you can play with it all over your PC and Xbox friends, as well.
Here are some of the key features as listed below and PR blurb, plus some screenshots to read:
Lovecraftian. Discover the myth of the legendary author HP Lovevcraft.
Arena mode. Have with your friends in exciting arenas for 2 to 4 players.
Crazy crazy. Embrace madness and unleash devastating powers by transforming yourself into the powerful avatar of a Great Old Man.
Rentals. 16 unique dangerous arenas inspired by Lovecraft’s work.
Fun for everyone. With simple controls and goals, anyone can participate. We know: we had our moms try it.
“Hunt down friends with a huge knife in their hands, murderous tentacles, or the strange crowd of Innsmouth fish …” Why not, really? The game comes ‘later this year’, so if you’ve got enough autosertion on ol ’HP work of art in recent years, this might be worth keeping one or two of your shoggoth eyes.
