On January 14th, 2020, a new 2.5D arcade game will debut on PC – Bug Academy. The game allows the training of flies, fireflies, mosquitoes and bees. The title stands out with its joyfully chaotic gameplay and a charming audiovisual setting. In the first quarter of 2020, Bug Academy will also be released on Nintendo Switch.
Bug Academy is a production of the Polish studio Igrek Games. The publishers are Gaming Factory S.A. and Ultimate Games S.A. At the beginning of 2019, this title successfully completed its funding campaign on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform.
This arcade game created by Igrek Games allows training different insects, including flies, fireflies, mosquitoes and bees. As the game’s creators indicate, it covers various situations of insect life – such as guarding animals in pastures, working in mines, putting out fires, catching ghosts, painting pictures or firing rockets.
“Bug Academy allows you to control insects and even their entire swarm. The goal is to perform tasks the best or the fastest. The gameplay is quick and intense. What is important is that the vast majority of elements are distinguished by their interactivity – they can be destroyed, moved or grabbed. The insects themselves are also diverse because each species has special abilities” says the game’s creator, Jacek Perzanowski.
There are 33 levels/lessons for the players to complete, and each of them with a unique task to perform. Various goals boil down to delivering refrigerators, launching rockets into space or catching ghosts.
“In Bug Academy players are placed in a very interactive world full of charming graphics and an original soundtrack full of insect sounds. All of this is saturated with light humor and a feeling of joyful chaos, which should appeal to both younger and older players” adds Jacek Perzanowski.
