Devolver Announces Ape Out Launching for Switch & PC on Feb 7

Independent developer Gabe Cuzzillo and untamed game label Devolver Digital have announced that the primal thrill ride Ape Out will release on Nintendo Switch and PC February 7 [].

Developed by Gabe Cuzzillo with sound by Matt Boch and art by Bennett Foddy, Ape Out is a wildly intense and colorfully stylized smash ‘em up about primal escape, rhythmic violence, and frenetic jazz. Build up nearly unstoppable momentum and use your captors as both weapons and shields to crush everyone on your procedurally generated path to freedom.

“Our team is pleased to finally announce a release date; for one of our most anticipated titles ever in Ape Out.  Frankly, it was a lot harder to motion capture an ape than we had originally thought; and recording primates ripping human corpses apart is generally frowned upon in most countries.”

said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.

It slams its hairy fist onto Nintendo Switch and PC on February 7; and we swear to The Almighty Primate God; it’s the most intense fucking thing you’ve ever played.
