Wiesbaden, Germany September 23rd, 2021.
The Germany-based indie games publisher/developer Assemble Entertainment and indie games developer Robot Pumpkin Games, today announced with great excitement and delight that their sci-fi comedy adventure game “Plan B From Outer Space: A Bavarian Odyssey” is coming to PC (via Steam) and mobile (iOS and Android devices) on Ocotober 28th this year (2021).
In the game, players will hop into the space-boots of a shipwrecked shapeshifter as they experience Bavarian hospitality first-hand — or tentacle — and try to repair their ship and get the heck off the planet before the cockpit permanently smells of lager and pretzels.
Set in the style of an interactive book — similar to previous RobotPumpkin games like the popular The Innsmouth Case — Plan B From Outer Space: A Bavarian Odyssey is a classic tale of culture shock between two very different demographics. The game will see players designing their very own custom space creature who will attempt to navigate this strange, archaic land filled with lederhosen and lager where every decision can change the outcome of the story! Inspired by old-school science fiction stories and with a hefty dose of poking fun at German village life, players can look forward to beautiful, hand-drawn art, endearing characters and hilarious encounters, along with19 different endings — the tiny Bavarian town of “Unter-Hinterobersdorf” is waiting!
Key Features of Plan B From Outer Space: A Bavarian Adventure:
“Basic” Bavarians Meet “Extra” Terrestrials: Design your very own cute, cuddly, and conniving space creature with unique features and a touching backstory
Make the Right (or Funniest) Decision: With 19 possible endings, every choice matters, which means plenty of trial and error with comedic results
Big Brain Blobs: Use those alien wits to solve fun, challenging mini-games and discover handy (or tentacle-y) items to help you escape the savage backwater of Southern Germany
Handmade German Craftsmanship: Dozens of beautifully illustrated backgrounds and animated characters breathe life and personality into this perfectly blended sci-fi comedy experience
