We are beyond excited to announce to you the release date for our inaugural Xbox One title. Swimsanity! is a multiplayer underwater shooter with action-packed co-op and versus game modes, all supported by online and local play. You play as our hero Mooba, who uses a variety of unique power ups and weapons to survive in this aquatic world. Whether you’re teaming up with friends to swim into Adventure mode or clashing in competitive matches such as Last Mooba Standing, there’s more than 150+ challenges to complete across 8 action-packed game modes in Swimsanity!
We wanted to make sure that no matter how or where you play Swimsanity!, that you can enjoy it to the fullest. That means Swimsanity! will feature cross-play across all platforms. Which means that you can enjoy this underwater shooter with all your friends. We also have robust online features with matchmaking, custom rooms, parties, and cross platform leaderboards powered by Microsoft Azure PlayFab. All of this fast intuitive gameplay running on predict/rollback netcode to give our online community a seamless experience. Oh, and if you are not looking to play online, we have you covered with 1-4 players local play including support with bots.
For those of you who have not played yet, the game is quite simple. Before entering any match, a player can choose from a range of eye-popping Unleashes, which are essentially your special moves. Unleashes range from a Medic to heal yourself and teammates, all the way to a Shark to devour your opponents. When a Mooba strikes enough damage on their opponents, players have the special ability to “Unleash Swimsanity!” to gain a major advantage in battle. The foundation of Unleashes brings the excitement to battle seamlessly across both versus and co-op game modes.
We’re a huge multiplayer fan of both versus and co-op games, so making sure you could enjoy Swimsanity! in both forms was a huge push for us in development. If you are into online competition jump into Versus modes where you can try out the traditional deathmatch, the elimination style Last Mooba Standing, or the capture the flag-esque Orb Rush. Bump up the tactics and compete 2v2 as well. If you are more of a team player, we have co-op modes for 1-4 players where you can team up with friends in the side scrolling boss battle filled Adventure mode, or see how long you can last in our wave based Survival mode. Do all this across 5 completely different worlds with 150 in game challenges, and you have an ocean filled with extensive content.
Our three-man team has been hard at work, and we will definitely be online competing against and with everyone who plays. We are so excited that all the gamers on Xbox One can pre-order now to unleash Swimsanity! this Summer on August 7.
