I mean... who doesn't want a brawler starring a hamster?


News by Matt S.

Let's chalk this one up as the quirky game announcement of the week. Hamsterdam, by Muse Games, is one of the new Kickstarter titles. Looking to raise a modest $US8,000, and already clearly deep into development, this is an arcade brawler where you get to play as a highly customisable hamster.

Yep, it's brutal hamster combat plus dress-ups, and that seems to be resonating with players. At time of writing, the campaign has just launched and is already a third of the way to its target. And with good reason, too. Who doesn't want to lay the beat-down with hamsters?

There's plenty more details on the Kickstarter page, as well as a list of the delightful rewards backers can get. This is the developer behind Guns of Icarus, so it knows how to deliver a project, and as the trailer (below) shows, it really is a long way along already.


The game's currently slated for a March 2019 release, across Nintendo Switch, PlayStation Vita (yes!), PC, iOS and Android. Clearly this is being pitched as a bit of portable fun.
