Devolver Digital Announces Ape Out!
Written By: Kenneth Seward Jr.
Devolver Digital and Indie developer Gabe Cuzzillo announced a new title, Ape Out, that’s coming to PC and consoles this summer. Featuring minimalistic yet, stylized visuals and intense combat, the game seems destined for greatness…or at the very least, a second glance from interested gamers!
After watching the announcement trailer (shown below), that are Ape protagonist is trying to escape a labyrinth-like zoo full of rifle carrying guards. He does this by smashing his way through, using his momentum as a weapon; he attacks send his captors flying into each other. He can also grab enemies and use them as human shields.
“Since I was a little boy one of my hobbies has been to secretly set zoo animals free and watch them run rampant, killing their captors in the most violent ways possible,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “Ape Out captures that child-like sense of wonder in a very profound and meaningful way and also adds a drum beat.”
Crazy childhood hobbies aside, Ape Out does look like a fun time. It’s a bit reminiscent of the Hotline Miami series, another from Devolver Digital’s stable. Those of you heading to PAX should check it out at their booth. Going or not, be sure to check back here as we continue to cover this interesting title!
