In a cardboard world, life is like a box of… well, boxes!
Angoulême, France / Giebelstadt, Germany, November 28th, 2019: Holiday season is upon us. You know what that means right? Exactly. Wishlists and boxes! Piles of them! Ever wondered where those beloved boxes play when you’re away? Then look no further. HandyGames and Seed by Seed will take you on a trip to their cardboard home, where you help the Boxlings to solve fun environmental puzzles alone or co-op with up to four players.
Boxes are lightweight, exceptionally sturdy and you can stack them to reach the size of the Eiffel Tower! Now, take a look inside and become a Boxling to experience family-friendly co-op adventures and unfold mysteries while solving puzzles and quests as a team! Work together and pile your boxes on each other to reach the highest positions as you help your cardboard friends. Explore a colorful world made entirely of cardboard together, as you visit the friendly citizens of sun-baked islands, amber forests, and vibrant caves! Or maybe just kick-back and challenge your friends in action-packed rounds of Boxball, Pile of Dunk or Tic Pile Toe!
Play together, stick together, think together – and Pile Up!
“This was our core intention: the promise of an adventure that you could share with up to four people, a casual game that could gather the whole family, children and parents alike, in a funny, playful and non-violent space.”
Pile Up! is a 3D platformer developed by French Studio Seed by Seed for PC, Xbox® One, PlayStation®4 and Nintendo Switch™ and is scheduled to release in 2020.
