This is a rather strange game, it’s about otters that are stuck in a sort of battle. It’s titled “The Otterman Empire” and it’ll be available on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch or PC platforms. In this game you’ll be able to pick an otter, select various customizable options and then get into play.
There are local multiplayer battles, or structured single player campaign missions where you’re attempting to hit certain goals. It’s odd to note that, as this does allow two player local campaign coop as well. I was sent a small demo to check out, it was minimal yet I got a bit of a grasp as to what the game is presenting. It provided a tutorial, and then a mission to play to get a feel for it.
This has some wild action, featuring high shooting jetpacks and weird blasters. You’ll also use strange mechanics such as diving into the water to charge and then thrusting out to shoot out enemies. The areas have unique structures, with lots of wild action. There are things to shoot, hazards to watch out for and enemies to eliminate.
Again, I didn’t get a lot to try out here and it was more of a taste. I used the Xbox controller and it handled quite well with fast paced movement. It also promises splitscreen action for up to four players as you have local skirmishes. I thought the variety in customization was well done, and the visuals are impressive. I’m looking forward to seeing the full release to cover that in the future. You can read about our thoughts on Bee Simulator below, or general hubs for additional coverage.
