The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild and Wayward Distractions released Space Otter Charlie today on Nintendo Switch, Xbox, PlayStation, and Steam! The game is rated E10 by the ESRB and is priced at $14.99.
Head out into space to find a new home for Charlie and the whole animal kingdom! Charlie and his crew of otternauts need your help to find a planet suitable for all the animals left behind from humanity’s grand exodus. In Space Otter Charlie you’ll shoot, slide, and jetpack your way through all sorts of obstacles – but watch out for ARES! That’s the Anti Rodent Elimination System trying to keep you from scavenging all the parts you need. It’s not all mechanical menaces blocking your way, you’ll need to dodge debris, exposed wiring, and dangerous jets of flame to build up an arsenal worthy of your adventures. Lazors, shark suits, and more are available with the help of your buddy Build Bot – so make sure you grab all the junk you can find!
Here’s what Studio Head Ed Allard of Wayward Distractions had to say about creating Space Otter Charlie:
“While I was playing around with zero-g prototypes, the fluid motion reminded me of Feeding Frenzy, which was the first game I did like a hundred years ago. I’m not the first person to realize this – NASA trains astronauts for spacewalks under water. Anyway I started thinking that sea creatures could probably adapt more quickly to the strangeness of Zero-G than humans could. Blend that realization with a zero-g game prototype and a long time love of sea otters, and you’ve got Space Otter Charlie.”
