With a title like Epic Loon
, you wouldn't be expecting a game that takes itself too seriously, and you'd be right. The first trailer to be released for Macrales Studio's upcoming title shows players exactly what they can expect from the 2D couch co-op platformer.
The trailer tries to encompass everything by even giving players a look at the game's load-in and main menu functionality. It allows us to get out first glimpse of Joe, a nerd with an impressive VHS collection. The problem is that he's awakened aliens and they're out to get revenge by invading his film collection. We get a glimpse at some of those movies — Nosteracula, Jurassik Land, Grojira: King of the Mobs and Alien: The Hitchhiker — before finally heading into nearly 50 seconds of gameplay where players take on the role of the aliens in their attempt to avoid the wrath of Joe.
The wacky title will be appearing in Q1 2018 for Xbox One.
