Press release:
New York City, United States – October 3rd, 2018 – New York-based independent studio, snowhydra games has released a developer walkthrough demonstrating both the competitive multiplayer and solo story campaign in “Zarvot“, a whimsical game about cubes that sometimes love and sometimes hate each other.

Launching exclusively on Nintendo Switch this October, Zarvot features four-player local multiplayer as players assume the role of anthropomorphic cubes that are tasked with blowing each other to pieces. Inspired by titles like Bomberman and TowerFall, Zarvot features easy to learn controls that still allow for a lot of depth and flexibility.

Set in a series of destructible combat arenas across five game modes, you’ll have to master the minutiae of rapid fire, charge shots, evades, and area attacks if you want to best your buds at this gloriously upbeat competitive arcade affair. There’s also an asymmetrical multiplayer mode called Joy-Vot, wherein one player spawns in enemies to fight their friends.

Additionally, Zarvot features an entire story-driven single-player campaign, as players assume the role of Charcoal and their pal Mustard, a pair of affable cubes determined to cheer up their friend Red on their birthday. This heartwarming journey will take players through nine different zones, featuring fully realized dioramas of an abstract world that operates not unlike our own.

These comical, cosmopolitan cubes still need to go to flower shops, ride the metro, and sleep in their beds. In Zarvot, snowhydra takes the most humdrum of inanimate objects, and turns them into some of the most well-realized animated characters you’re likely to find.

“I wanted to make a game that boils down what I love about the medium to its essentials,” said Snowhydra Games founder Sam Eng. “Tight, responsive controls; interactive, tactile objects; moving character drama; and the opportunity for emergent multiplayer hijinks. Zarvot is a celebration of everything that makes video games special!”

What Critics Are Saying:

“It takes a lot for a new four-player battler to get our attention, but this one has some serious secret sauce.”Ars Technica

“This delightful, all-ages arcade shooter is both cute and competitive.”Nerdist

“Zarvot is a party game with incredibly aggressive cubes”Bleeding Cool
