Sydney based indie developers, Nnooo are today delighted to announce Blast ‘Em Bunnies™, a brand new title that will bounce on to PlayStation®4 (PS4™), PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita) and Nintendo 3DS™ in 2014.
Defend your burrow from a horde of evil bunnies before they take you down! Pick them off using your carrot rifle, pelt their furry hides with your watermelon pip machine gun or wreak havoc with your runner bean rail gun. Want to destroy as many of their colony as possible? Your turnip mortar will do maximum splash damage. These crafty cottontails come in all shapes and sizes. Some of them can even fly, so you’ll need every weapon in your armoury to deal with this barbarous band of bitter bunnies. How they became evil, where they came from and who taught them to fly remains a mystery. But there’s no time to ponder these rabbit riddles, just grab your favourite weapon and… Blast ‘Em Bunnies!
“Blast ‘Em Bunnies is a pick-up-and-play endless shooter…with bunnies,” said Nic Watt, Creative Director of Nnooo. “You have to keep your bunny alive as long as you can. The longer you play, the more difficult survival becomes. But it’s not just your own bunny’s mortality you’re concerned with. You also need to deal with the throat slitter who is holding your baby bunnies hostage. He’ll pop up every now and again with one of your little ‘uns. Kill him quickly and the baby bunny escapes. If you’re not quick enough…well, I really don’t want to talk about it.”
Collect in-game coins to upgrade your weapons and purchase special ammo types such as heat seeking chilli seeds, sticky exploding raspberries and bouncing pumpkin bombs. Shoot crates to activate power-ups and ammo types. Take out the elusive golden bunny to collect a warren-load of cash.
“This game has a very different art style from any other game we’ve made,” said Watt. “We wanted to give it a cartoon feel that would make great use of the power of PlayStation 4. We’re bringing Blast ‘Em Bunnies out initially on PS4, PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS,” said Watt. “We’ll consider other platforms depending on how much evil bunny blood is spilled.”
That’s not all! Nnooo are also pleased to announce that Blast ‘Em Bunnies will be unveiled at this weekend’s EB Expo at Sydney’s Olympic Park, where fans will have the opportunity to get hands on with their latest game for the very first time. Blast ‘Em Bunnies will be playable on PS4 at the PlayStation booth and at Nnooo’s own booth in the Homegrown Gaming area.
Also available to play at Nnooo’s booth will be the 3 Sprockets developed Cubemen 2™ for Wii U™ and ORBITOR™ by Evil Aliens, two upcoming titles Nnooo will be publishing.
