Developer Pixadome and publisher Zordix are excited to announce that Hayfever is launching today—February 25th—on PC via Steam (with a 15% launch discount), PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Check out the trailer below or Dodger’s Twitch VOD for allergy-fueled action, cartoon antics and some huge boss fights not to be sneezed at.
Available now for $14.99/14.99€/£11.99, Hayfever is a frantic 2D platformer with a runny nose and tongue firmly in cheek. Postman Thomas is hopping, bounding and sneezing his way across 140 dangerous levels, delivering packages and recovering 240 lost letters, scattered by an unfortunate sneezing fit, from unlikely locations hidden around each stage.

Adorably tough, Hayfever is designed to be replayed and mastered. Just completing all four seasons is tricky enough, but delivering every lost letter calls for a true postmaster. Diligent deliverers might even find something new waiting on the other side of a full mailbag. Hayfever is built for speed – the best players will barely have time to touch the ground – with an official speedrun timer mode planned for a post-launch update.
