Space Mace and Graffiti Games have announced that Joggernauts will release on Nintendo Switch next week.
In this chaotic colour-coded auto-runner party game, players must take turns to lead a jogging team of alien athletes as they brave deceptively difficult colour-coded platforming levels.
That will challenge you to do your best to avoid smacking straight into the obstacles that litter their path.
While much of the experience has been geared around jogging cooperatively with up to four players, you can choose to jog solo in a separate single-player mode where one player must control two characters that have different colours.
Teamwork is required to succeed, as, while jogging, players must switch the character at the front of the line to match the colour of the enemies, obstacles, prizes and pickups that they come across in every level. Mistakes reduce the team’s shared number of lives, and players will always succeed or fail as a group.
“Players succeed or fail as a group, either successfully crossing the finish line, or failing and restarting together,” explains Space Mace co-founder Zachary Johnson.
“The key is communication and paying attention. Do this well and players can not only finish a level together, or by themselves, but also collect all the trophies to unlock bonus levels.”
Joggernauts will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on October 11th, priced at $14.99.
