Cute ‘Em Up B.ARK Launches Animal Astronauts On Nintendo Switch in Q4 2020!

BURBANK, Calif. – Sept. 14, 2020 – B.ARK, the interstellar animal adventure cute ’em up for the whole family from Tic Toc Games featured in a Nintendo Showcase earlier this year, blasts into space for fun, challenging adventures Q4 2020 as a timed-exclusive on Nintendo Switch.

Carefully crafted by some of the minds behind Shovel Knight, Contra 4, and A Boy and His Blob, B.ARK feels like a Saturday-morning cartoon for the whole family. When a cybernetic army of sea creatures known as the Dark Tide threatens the universe, humanity’s only hope is Team Bio-Interstellar ARK (B.ARK), an awesome crew of animal pilots!

Assemble for a family game night and join B.ARK’s four furry heroes on their journey to save the Solar System. Barker the Dog, Felicity the Cat, Lucio the Bear, and Marv the Rabbit all possess Super-Duper abilities to help turn the…tide…against the Dark Tide. Barker temporarily turns baddies into goodies while Felicity can double her bullets for extra damage. Create a powerful barrier for the whole team as Lucio, or slow down every on-screen enemy with Marv.

Coordinate with up to four local pilots to activate Super Fusion Combos that can take down even the most powerful revenge-seeking sealife. Though B.ARK soars through space in top-of-the-line ships, their fishy enemies put up quite the fight. When they take too much damage, crew members can attach to friendly ships in Side-Car Mode to stay in the fight. But a bit of friendly competition never hurt anyone — tally the results at the end of levels to see who played best.

Journey through our corner of the Milky Way discovering animated friends and foes while visiting colorful planets. Battle sea creatures like Guppies, Hammerheads, and Crush-taceans piloting powerful mechs. And what sort of cute ‘em up would be complete without tough bosses?

B.ARK invites families and friends to reconnect for a night of fast-paced fun. Charming hand-drawn animation, epic space-faring music that keeps the action lighthearted, and an all-ages setting means anyone can pick up the game, start playing, and start smiling in mere minutes.

“With B.ARK, we’ve created a seamless story experience from the opening cinematic to the menus, and into gameplay,” said Marc Gomez, director, Tic Toc Games. “We hope players and their teammates find themselves immersed in the colorful world we’ve presented to them and fall in love with the different animal heroes of the B.ARK team!”

B.ARK releases on Nintendo Switch as a timed-exclusive in North America, Europe, Great Britain, and Russia in English for $9.99.

Glide through the air and slip through small chasms as 1-bit Pip, leap off walls, climb ledges, and punch baddies as 8-bit Pip, then cut down enemies and obstacles as the sword-wielding 16-bit Pip.

Search high and low for secrets, including 108 kidnapped villagers hidden throughout the world.Along the way, gather Gems held by enemies and hidden in treasure chests for powerful upgrades.

BURBANK, Calif. – August 6, 2020 – Adventures of Pip, the charming retro-inspired platformer where a single pixel evolves (and devolves!) between three forms to become a hero from Tic Toc Games, spreads nostalgic cheer on the Nintendo Switch™ system Thursday, September 10. The Nintendo Switch version of Adventures of Pip improves on previous editions with new features, optimizations, and quality-of-life improvements.

Embark on a rollicking platforming adventure through Pixelonia, a kingdom where those rendered with more pixels lead more luxurious lives. When the evil Queen DeRezzia from a rival empire steals the kingdom’s pixels and princess, the King and Queen of Pixelonia tell the 1-bit Pip to find someone who can help. Pip soon learns he is a prophesied hero able to connect with the Bitstream and evolve into higher-res forms.

Shift between 1-, 8-, and 16-bit to find the perfect form for defeating each type of enemy, unleashing abilities appropriate for different challenges. Move through tight spaces as 1-bit Pip, whose light frame glides through the skies. Gracefully jump off walls, slam the ground, cling to ledges, and punch and kick as the more acrobatically-inclined 8-bit Pip. Slice through foes and obstacles as 16-bit Pip, a sword-wielding form whose power matches his noble frame.

Learn to weave back-and-forth between the three forms in seamless combos to soar through five themed worlds ranging from lush forests to murky swamps. Travel from stage to stage on a gorgeous overworld, then return to Pip’s home town to purchase new abilities and consumables unlocked by rescuing 108 wayward residents.
