SEATTLE, WA – February 25, 2021 – The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild and Wayward Distractions are releasing Space Otter Charlie on March 18, 2021 on Nintendo Switch, Xbox, PlayStation, and Steam! The game is rated E10 by the ESRB and is priced at $14.99. Review copies and previews are available upon request.
In a galaxy left wrecked by humankind, it’s up to some optimistic sea mammals to head out into… otter space! Join Charlie and his ragtag crew of critters on a daring mission through the galaxy as they search for a new planet to call home. Explore derelict space stations, battle unhinged robots, and enjoy some otterly terrific puns as you jump, float, and fly through over a dozen levels of furry fun.
Here’s what Studio Head Ed Allard of Wayward Distractions had to say about creating Space Otter Charlie:
“While I was playing around with zero-g prototypes, the fluid motion reminded me of Feeding Frenzy, which was the first game I did like a hundred years ago. I’m not the first person to realize this – NASA trains astronauts for spacewalks under water. Anyway I started thinking that sea creatures could probably adapt more quickly to the strangeness of Zero-G than humans could. Blend that realization with a zero-g game prototype and an Otter Space T-shirt, and you’ve got Space Otter Charlie.”
