Gun Media and SuperSoul are proud to announce their first title for PS4: Speakeasy, an engaging, local-multiplayer party game that blends rock-paper-scissors with the styles and sounds of 1920’s Roarin’ America! What makes Speakeasy so great is that it will bring you and up to 15 of your friends together in a party game that keeps you engaged from the moment you pick it up.
While it might look like a fighter on the outside, Speakeasy is an incredibly simple to learn, but difficult to master game that will require you to match wits with your opponent, who happens to be standing right next to you. Each player will take on the role of a fighter vying for the Fisticuffs League Champion crown! The rules are simple: land one punch to win, but be warned, you only get one punch, one block and one fake each round. And with each round lasting only 10 seconds, you must choose your moves wisely.
To liven things up, you will be able to choose from multiple fighters vying for the championship. From characters inspired by famous celebrities and personalities of the 1920s, each fighter will also come with multiple costumes, props, and unlockables that will personalize each fighter to every player’s desire. Duke it out as the Bare-Knuckle Brawler Richard Slugging or the High-Flying Amelia Airborne! Astound and amaze your opponents as the Electrifying Nikola Volt or chop your opponents asunder as the Temperate Carrie Hatchet. Play it smooth as the Jazz Legend Barrelhouse Jones, or relax a while as the Melancholy Charlie the Tramp.
Though the fight may seem simple from the get-go, the challenge gets a bit tougher when you switch up the game modes; Speakeasy will have 2’s and 3’s, which allows each player to use each move two or three times each match. Keep in mind though; it only takes one successful punch to win. Switching things up even more, Tag Team will pit teams of fighters against one another with a variety of settings that will keep things lively. King of the Hill will allow for up to four players to duke it out at the same time! You’ll have to be quick on your toes to remain King of the Hill though, as matches will continue on without interruption until the timer runs out.
Not content with just a few friends? Speakeasy will also feature tournament support, allowing up to 16 competitors in a variety of settings. Each and every player will also be able to customize each fighter with a slew of costumes, props, and gizmos to make each fighter their own.
Speakeasy isn’t all that it seems, though… Gameplay and trophies will lead to tons of unlockables for your bouts; crazy antics, tons of droppable items, and even gameplay altering effects will be yours to customize and explore to bring a whole new experience to the game.
