Anarcute, a riot simulator will be arriving on the PC (Steam) and Xbox One Summer 2016, according to by French student creators Anarteam, who have won multiple awards during the development of Anarcute. In addition to announcing the release window, the developers have also released a new trailer for the game, seen below.
In Anarcute, players will lead their adorable band of rioters against the oppressive forces of the corrupt Brainwash Patrol in a glorious Kawaii-style setting. The single-player action game features a campaign across locations such as Tokyo and Paris, where players will need to build a rampaging force big enough to rescue friends, solve intricate puzzles and defeat the many enemies send their way.
The game is set to have a number of features, including:
- Grow your one-man army to a powerful mob, and unlock new powers as you do
Throw objects and take down whole buildings while rioting your way through the city
Face special units including snipers and giant helicopters from the dark forces of the Brainwash Patrol
Lead the riot across 40 levels in a single-player campaign through cities such as Tokyo, Paris, Miami and Reykjavik
Mathieu Leclercq, game designer at Anarteam, spoke about the game, saying:
“With Anarcute we really wanted to create something special and bring a crazy, colorful world of fun and chaos together with tactical gameplay. When we won the first award, we didn’t know what an amazing journey we would go on but it’s been great to realize our vision of city-wide adorable destruction.”
The game is being created based on the team’s original entry into Microsoft’s Imagine Cup 2014, winning the top prize in France and competing in the World Finals. A collective of five talented students at the French video game school Supinfogame, Anarteam has been developing Anarcute in their spare time during weekends and summer holidays. The title has been part of the ID@XBOX Program for Indie Developers and has won multiple awards during its development including Unity’s Award 2015 “Best Student Game” and “Best of Show for Action/Combat” at the Paris Games Week 2015.
