Karlsruhe, Germany, April 3rd, 2013 - TopWare Interactive and Chasing Carrots announced today the release of the new arcade action racer "Pressure" for retail PC across Europe and as a digital download on TopWare Direct and Steam worldwide. Chasing Carrots’ debut is a true labor of love, combining a fun arcade-style shooter with fast paced racing in a colorful, comic style steam-punk world.
No one can dispute that water is a precious resource, but in the world of "Pressure", it’s taken to a whole new level! All technology in the world of "Pressure" operates literally on pressure created from steam; from factories to vehicles, you name it, steam runs it. Obviously, no water=no steam. So when our hero, Morgan, attempts to take his morning swim in the river, he is shocked and horrified to discover that it has completely dried up! Morgan leaps into his buggy and roars into town to get some answers.
Morgan quickly realizes that the culprit behind the nefarious water theft is none other than the dreaded Count Soap, a slimy businessman who steals towns’ water supplies and funnels it into his “wellness spas”, effectively killing the town while lining his own pockets. Luckily, Morgan isn’t the type of guy who’ll sit back and watch his town crumble into dust without a fight. Firing up his steam buggy, he embarks on an epic quest to reclaim his town’s water supply, and kick the Count to the curb!
Morgan quickly realizes that the Count isn’t going down without a fight, as he unleashes his evil henchmen to stop Morgan in his tracks. From run of the mill thugs, to massive boss battles, Morgan must blast his way through over 30 levels of intense arcade racing, until he can confront the Count himself. The odds are as stacked as they get, but luckily our young hero has access to shops along the way, allowing him to upgrade his armor, pick up special weapons, and even purchase new buggies on his quest for hydro satisfaction.
As with previous games, TopWare interactive provides optional steam activation. This means that "Pressure" can be played either online via Steam, or offline without a Steam connection. Visit www.pressure-game.com to get more information on "Pressure", from screen shots to videos, and even a (280 MB) demo for PC, with four playable levels.
"Pressure" is available now for PC for the price of 14,99 Euro / USD, through both TopWare
Direct and Steam. The console versions of the game are coming, stay tuned for an exact release date which will be announced soon!
