Who would have thought a game about being a pest of a goose could be so charming?
Delightful co-op abomination Push Me Pull You is coming to PC, Mac and Linux on 14th July.
Last year I wrote about Push Me Pull You, a simultaneously horrifying and hilarious game about two conjoined man-worms, each played by two players, competing in a ball game. Now that game is confirmed for PS4 with Sony helping produce it through its Pub Fund program.
You see, each creature in Push Me Pull You is a snake-like figure with a head and arms on both ends. Each player controls a different end of the creature and they expand and compress by working in unison with one another. From there, your goal is to keep the ball on your side of the court while the other horrifying worm-person tries to do the same for their half of the playing field.
Developer House House has expanded Push Me Pull You quite a lot since I saw it a year and half ago at GDC. As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, it's adding new modes to the game including Knockout, a variant in which each team has a ball that they're trying to defend while knocking the enemies' ball out of the ring.
In April I wrote about Push Me, Pull You, a bizarre, horrifying co-op wrestling game about conjoined worm-people competing with one another to keep a ball in their court. Now, developer House House has released some alpha footage depicting an entire round of the nightmare fuel.
As you can see, the four-player game is based around competitive multiplayer in which two teams each occupy the body of one creature. One person controls the head and arms, while the other controls the... other head and arms at their rear. Just go with it.
Every "sportsmonster" can expand and retract, but the longer you are, the less force you exert upon the ball. So you'll have to decide as a team, on the fly, between focusing on length or girth.
Imagine if Noby Noby Boy, The Human Centipede, and QWOP had a baby. And then that baby was taken by a mad scientist and attached to another baby at the rear. And this horrifying monstrosity was forced to compete in feats of strength with another dual-baby abomination. That's basically Push Me, Pull You in a nutshell. Needless to say, it's incredible!
