One of the most unique and evocative platforming titles released in 2015 is making its way to consoles! Independent game publisher Abstraction Games and developer Jaywalkers Interactive announced today that Kick & Fennick, released in February of 2015 to the PS Vita to rave reviews, is launching later this year on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, as well as the WiiU system.
Kick & Fennick tells the story of a young boy named Kick who finds himself waking up in a bright and colorful, yet dangerous world. Armed with a giant gun that can be used to shoot down enemy robots, while also allowing him to make huge jumps using the weapon’s powerful recoil, Kick searches for a way to the highest tower in the city to find a new energy core for Fennick, his helpful flying robot friend. Together they must explore this strange, new world, jumping and shooting their way through 45 levels of collapsed skyscrapers, treadmills, bouncypads, magnets, teleporters, and a big guard robot that is never far behind!
“With Kick & Fennick, we tried to create a unique platforming experience. We’ve had fantastic reactions and can’t wait for a wider audience to be able to play through it,” said Vincent Bonefaas, Co-Founder of Jaywalkers Interactive. “Platforming fans looking for a breath of fresh air in the genre should definitely check it out, and we can’t wait to hear their feedback.”
