Meet Action Henk – a new kind of hero and a new type of game, preparing to burst onto PlayStation, Xbox One and Wii U this summer thanks to RageSquid and Curve Digital.
Action Henk is a blistering race through a toybox world, where a cast of classic action figure inspired characters compete to see who is the fastest toy in town. The game challenges players to shave milliseconds off their times by running, jumping and butt-sliding across over 70 challenging levels in a game which revels in almost sonic speeds.
It’s a pure, unadulterated joy at a constantly eye-watering pace as tracks and courses offer multiple routes to the goal. Collect bronze, silver, gold or even rainbow medals to unlock new worlds and greater challenges as wild and whacky characters emerge to provide greater opposition. And if that’s not enough: tackle awesome boss races in order to unlock mind-boggling bonus levels.
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the reaction to Action Henk on PC,” says Roel Ezendam, co-founder of RageSquid, “but it’s always a game we wanted to see in the hands of console players, so the decision to work with Curve Digital – with their reputation and experience – was a simple one. We’ve got some big plans for the console versions and can’t wait to see PlayStation, Xbox One and Wii U players racing up the leaderboards.”
“We’ve long admired RageSquid for their ability to create games that bring joy – and Action Henk shows the team are at the top of their game,” adds Jason Perkins, managing director, Curve Digital. “As someone who – how can we say – has been in the games industry for a while, Action Henk brings back very fond memories of some of the most revered platformers and we’re hugely privileged to be playing a part in bringing it to consoles.”
Action Henk will be available for Xbox One, Wii U and PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita (cross buy) this summer. More information will be released soon.
