While not all games have, or need big boss battles they are still a common tradition in gaming. But have you ever wondered what it would be like from a boss’ perspective, crushing those little insignificant bugs that dare to face you. Sand Sailor Studio decided to just show you with their new upcoming game BOSSGARD. They are a Bucharest-based independent game development company founded in 2014 and have previously worked on Black The Fall. With BOSSGARD they are going for a completely different tone and atmosphere, the game being much more comedic.
About the Game
BOSSGARD is a fast-paced asymmetrical multiplayer game where one player is pitted against a group of others. That one person is the big bad Boss, dwarfing his opponents both in size and in style. You get to choose which one of the several ridiculous monstrosities you want to play as. These include a giant six-sided die with mouths and eyes on every side, an immovable fortress with heads that shoot lasers, evil one-eyed bread named Olaf and more.
If you happen to be more of a team player, or it’s someone else’s turn to be the Boss, you can team up with your friends and fight together as a group of valiant vikings. You can choose from a myriad of characters. Some are small, while others big and bulky, all with a different playstyle. Some vikings prefer to get close and whack the giant monstrosity with their weapons or even bare fists, while others go for a more safe approach and keep their distance while firing at the Boss.
To spice things up, there will be different arenas where players can face off on. They will feature different themed traps which you will have to deal with, bringing even more variation to the gameplay. These arenas are just as wacky as the characters, featuring bass-blasting concert stages, giant deadly espresso machines and more. Positioning will be crucial to victory.
The creators of BOSSGARD have a very interesting concept in mind, one that is forming into a very fun-looking game. Being the big bad instead of fighting him would be nice for a change and fighting him is still an option. Like most party games, you just need a few friends and simply just drop-in and clash with each other, no gear, no leveling, no stat calculating. Certainly a promising title and if you are interested you can check it out here.
