Couch co-op shooter Fluster Cluck coming to PS4 next month

22 2

LOOT Entertainment’s latest promises old-school arcade fun

Made ya look ;) Remember when we were kids, and multiplayer gaming meant physically going to your friend’s house and kicking his ass while mom made nachos? Yeah. That’s Fluster Cluck. It cuts through the blahblah and gets straight to the nachos.

Fluster Cluck is a cartoony pick-up-and-play twin-stick shooter with resource-gathering elements. It has no blood, no gore, no grizzled mercenaries, no princesses who need to be saved, no softcore anime cutscenes, no dialogue trees and no moral dilemmas. It just has chikkin. Lots and lots of chikkin.

At LOOT, we’re bringing you a PS4 game that gets back to basics:

  1. Grab some friends
  2. Turn on the PS4
  3. Start the FLUSTER CLUCK
  4. Pwnage

Fluster Cluck’s premise is very straightforward: the universe is driven by applied chikkin technologies, pioneered by the Chikkin Koop corporation. And, predictably, the galaxy’s appetite for chikkin product creates ever greater strain on chikkin resources. To avert wars, resource protests, rolling brownouts, melting glaciers and bad reruns on TV, Chikkin Koop has deployed the ultimate resource collector: the Chikkinizer. Everything dropped into the Chikkinizer – cows, camels, zombies, treasure chests, coworkers – is instantly transformed into chikkin.

And as you start the game as a lowly Chikkin Koop employee, desperately trying to climb the corporate ladder, it is your job to go get those chikkins.

Why “chikkin” instead of something more mature, refined, and, erm… polygon….ful? Why a colourful throwback art style instead of washed-out olive drab camouflage? Why cartoony explosions instead of photorealism? Because FUN – pure, honest-to-goodness fun – doesn’t always have to require half a billion dollars.

Fluster Cluck takes advantage of the great PS4’s unique features. When you’re down on points, and your best friend sitting next to you on the sofa is gloating about his certain victory, there’s nothing quite so enjoyable as hearing the whoosh from your controller’s speaker as you launch a missile, followed by a BOOM from his controller’s speaker as he blows up. And then you chikkinize his broken and smoldering UFO – complete with some more clucking awesome sound effects – and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat at the buzzer.

Granted, he will then punch you in the face. Sorry about that.

If you’ve been looking for a couch multiplayer party game (which has a single-player and co-op campaign, yeah, but we don’t want to give out any spoilers about the saga of climbing up through the ranks of the Chikkin Koop) that anyone can play, and you don’t mind a game that has UFOs, cows, camels, zombies, treasure chests, missiles, turrets, afterburners, shields, megafields, decoys that go boom – and lots of poultry – then Fluster Cluck is for you. Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of their chikkin!

On the other hand, if you’re not looking for a cartoony couch multiplayer party indie game, then Fluster Cluck cannot really help you with that. Cluck.
