Spit, Spit – Pop!

HANDYGAMES ANNOUNCES ARCADE MULTIPLAYER MAYHEM SPITLINGS FOR PC AND ALL MAJOR CONSOLES.

Cologne and Giebelstadt/Germany, April 3rd, 2019: You know what the problem with multiplayer games is, right? The other players! It’s always THEIR FAULT if you lose! Together with Massive Miniteam, HandyGames is happy to announce the perfect game to blame your friends for their incapability: Spitlings! This action arcade chaos game for up to four players is a modern take on the hardcore classics. You’re in control of a Spitling, a charming rectangular creature with teeth it can spit or use to jump! Makes no sense? Watch the trailer!

Spitlings offers a Story Mode as well as an Arcade Mode with over 100 Levels, each is a unique challenge and playable solo or with up to four players. You win together and you lose together because if one player fails on a level, everyone has to start all over. So you get the cozy feeling of playing with your friends and the outrage of versus multiplayer on top.

“We’re extremely excited about this opportunity! For our first game, we couldn’t have wished for a better publisher than HandyGames. They are nothing but supportive and have the experience to make sure that SPITLINGS reaches the audience it deserves. We got a true co-op partner in them!” Milan Pingel, Founder & Producer at Massive Miniteam.

You can even create your own levels in a unique 4-player Co-Op editor and experience them together! An intuitive, simple editor that can be used without prior experience to make a working level within minutes. Level Editing is almost as fun as playing itself. Spitlings is currently in development for PC, Nintendo Switch™, the PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system and the Xbox® One family of devices, including the Xbox One X. The release is scheduled for later this year.
