Cross-Platform Arcade Game to Feature Solo, Competitive and Co-Op Modes
Düsseldorf, December 27, 2018 — Hive Interactive today announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign for The Cow Game. The original cross-platform game is scheduled for release on iOS®, Android™, Apple TV®, Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One™, and will support browser play.
The Cow Game promises fast-paced side-scrolling arcade action for gamers of all ages. Players take on the role of a space cow on a mission to rescue her Earth-bound sisters and bring them back to her moooooonbase. In addition to a single-player story campaign, The Cow Game will also feature competitive online modes, social challenges, a co-op adventure, deep customization, and player housing.
“We’re beyond excited to finally reveal our game to the Kickstarter community and the world,” said Vasily Fotin, CEO and founder of Hive Interactive. “In the time we’ve worked on this game, we’ve already attracted top talent worldwide including industry veterans from Ubisoft and Wargaming.net. We hope the gaming community will like what they see and support our efforts to bring this amazing game to life.”
The Kickstarter campaign offers players the opportunity to get in at the ground level, with rewards including exclusive player titles, skins, housing items and avatars, as well as exclusive real-world rewards. Hive Interactive seeks to raise a minimum of €40,000 EUR through social financing, with stretch goals including support for web browsers, Apple TV and all current consoles.
Gamers can pledge their support on Kickstarter for as low as €1 for the Calf tier. An early-bird pledge of €16 or more guarantees a campaign mode license.
