15th October 2013 - The Midlands, UK. The Bumpkin Brothers continue to show off their latest game, Space Farmers, A 3D cooperative action game with gadgets, gizmos,electro shotguns and lots more!
Space Farmers tells the story of two ordinary farmers who get abducted by aliens and must now attempt to escape from the nefarious clutches of their captors.
The game will be demonstrated at the following events this year:
Game City 8, Nottingham
Insomnia 50, Telford
Come along and play an awesome preview of our fresh two player experience that is focused on cooperative play but that also contains plenty of things to shoot at together.
In the final game each play through will take up to 20 minutes to complete and will consist of a random set of 5 areas to beat, providing thousands of ship layouts to explore.
Each area will have it’s own unique puzzles and challenges to overcome. You might need to use a Hover Backpack to fly through space or you might be using Anti Grav Gloves to carry a space pig to a safe location. There are Magic Goggles to see hidden obstacles, huge waste-disposal grinders to avoid, Space Scooters to ride and much, much more.
Many of these features can be seen in the latest game play trailer available on YouTube:
Today the Bumpkin Bumpkin Brothers are simultaneously launching their Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight campaigns.
Help our heroes Steve and Thomas gain their freedom by supporting these campaigns.
About The Bumpkin Brothers
Rich and Andy met while going for the same job at a local software company. Andy got the job! However Rich was also hired in a separate department and within 6 months Rich was Andy’s boss.
Luckily they soon both realised they shared a love of creating games (as well as playing them) and after playing far too much Team Fortress 2 together and finding they made a great team, they decided to form Bumpkin Brothers in 2009.
Since then they have released several great games such as The Machine, The Tribloos, The Tribloos 2 and When Ian Fell In The Machine. However the dream was always to make Space Farmers, something they were planning and acting out in the break room for years. Bananas make great pretend laser guns.
