Description

Drink More Glurp is a wacky, physics based, sports(ish), hot-seat, party game. A race of aliens detect a signal from outer space, which turns out to be the 1936 Olympic Games... now, some years later, having created their own games we see that the aliens may have the wrong end of the stick. In creating their version of the games, the sporting events take a backseat to the sponsors, who twist the events to fit their agenda. With sponsors such as “Gravitol” bringing strange low gravity effects to the games and “Gamma Whey” giving the players super strong arm mutations – the sponsors create havoc for the athletes. Along with a massive collection of sponsor mutators there is also a huge range of events, each with multiple variations, which creates an almost endless combination for added replay-ability. Just when you think you are getting the hang of an event a sponsor will appear and give you laser hands! 
Amongst the sponsor mutators are sticky hands, crab arms, handcuffs, blob body, bomb rain, short arms, rocket hands, wings and many more! Each time you play you will see something different. A fun but challenging game, Drink More Glurp is the perfect local play party game to enjoy with friends or at public events. With hot seat style play not only do we support up to 20 players, all with one controller, but you also get players bringing their own unique play style to the table making for a great spectator game – expect lots of shouting and cheering! Players move the ‘athletes’ using their long noodle arms. Players control the arms independently with the analogue sticks. Along with the bumpers / triggers players can grab and throw using the arms. Players often develop their own ‘unique’ techniques when it came to moving the ‘athletes’ – there is no 'correct' way to play – which also adds another layer of entertainment. Glurp has compelling single player features such as Challenge Mode, where players can compete for high scores, and Playground where players can interact with objects in the physics driven environment to hone their skills ready for the next tournament!

The reveal trailer for Drink More Glurp caught our attention with the sheer number of modifiers on offer, which will hopefully add lots of replay value"
