The Crackpet Show is a new 2D Roguelike Bullet-Hell title with plenty of chaotic mayhem involved, pitting players in the fur or fins of several different characters including; Bunny, Cowie, Rusty and Sharky
Bunny walks through a hooded and broken city like a typical junkie and lacks the cash like a typical junkie, but notices a retirement home advertisement on the wall that he is looking for employees. He gets the job and drugs all the old pets, for which he gets kicked out and goes back to the street. Then it passes the banner with “The Crackpet Show”. Rest is obviously obvious.
Cowie from an early age showed above average intelligence (by putting block in a hole), then, genius learned how to put more blocks in holes. “The Crackpet Show” banner shown her new challenge. Not only is she one of the few that can give it all, but now also wondering how many holes she can make with a block…
Rusty is classic veteran soldier who has flashes of light, struggles with bouts of aggression and a constant urge for adrenaline. During one of his tantrums, in search for some decent amount of adrenaline he breaks a hole in the wall and sees the “The Crackpet Show” banner through it. Now this adrenaline junkie is one of the participants!
Sharky is a typical idiot nerd. He surrounds himself with the same idiot nerds tho the most nerdy thing about him is counting the blood stains on his body. Just walked by the “The Crackpet Show” banner and one thought appears! “How many blood stains will I be able to count?” – he is lost after 3 but now he is a bloody member of the Crackpets!
Champions known as The Crackpets take part in deadly arena matches to satisfy the urges of cruelty, greed, and carnage – basic pandemonium of wickedness which in the new dictionary is the definition of fun. Victory is only secondary here, what matters is to become the ultimate hero of the masses. The number one is chosen by the spectrum of fame, likes, approval, skills, tricks, uncontrollable wickedness, and ability to round up the masses thanks to the non-controlled bloodshed.
Up to four champions can enter the arena and cooperate to survive enemies and bosses like DJ Horse, Hugger, Junk Queen and that’s just the start! Get through each of the seasons in the most roguelike bullet-hell way possible, oh and obviously don’t forget about mayhem… Get the full recognition from watching psycho-brains by creating epic carnage!
The main inspiration for the game has been the “Happy Tree Friends” cartoon. The gore and graphics are a reflection of the characters’ lust for blood and their craziness. Amongst many others titles like Archero, Enter the Dungeon we hope that these resemblances are there.
The Crackpet Show is expected to release this Summer 2021 for PC, the game is also said to be releasing on Nintendo Switch, Playstation and XBox but at a later date.
