Description

Armed and Gelatinous pits friends against one another in fast-paced rounds of couch-competitive warfare! Play as one of four adorable gelatinous blobs in the far reaches of space, gaining firepower by sticking to an endless arsenal of weapons discarded by the future inhabitants of a more peaceful planet Earth. Be Warned! With each weapon collected, the bigger and slower each blob becomes! Agile blobs can charge up their dash attack and let it rip through even the most bloated of blobs! Each round can be customized by pre-selecting weapons and items and players can choose between stock match, time match, or death match! Unlock a variety of team-based sports party games including Blob Soccer, Blob Blitz, and Blob Bombardment!

History

Armed and Gelatinous has been showcased at gaming expos all around the world, from PAX Australia to Gamescom, and PAX East to GDC. The 4-Player party game has consistently proven itself a fan favorite at every event drawing large crowds and lots of laughter. The game was first conceptualized during a 48-hour game jam where the themes provided were Growth, Arms, and Sticky. From there the idea was expanded upon over half a decade and locations across the USA by Rob Howland and Anthony Prusakowski, co-founders of Three Flip Studios. An original soundtrack was scored by eight talented musicians, each adding their own unique vibe to the game. Legendary sound designer Jory Prum (The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Pixar, The Jim Henson Company) truly delivered on the game’s sound effects just before he sadly passed away. We’ve dedicated Armed and Gelatinous to his memory and miss him dearly.
