GAME PITCH

Dive into the bizarre world of Epic Loon, a quirky physics platformer for up to 4 players playable in couch co-op or battle mode.

An offbeat tribute to classic movies, players lead a group of aliens to take over Joe’s TV after they are rudely awakened from their home, an old-school cleaning VHS-tape.

« Epic Loon also features an excellent voice-over and original soundtrack along with unique visuals and one of the best, if not the best, menu in the history of video games. In addition to all the solo fun or together in front of a couch, Epic Loon still features specific modes targeted to hardcore platform players as well as speedrunners . Created especially for the generation that grew up with games, Epic Loon is an insane and hilarious game, capable of providing endless hours of fun with friends. » – Read the full review

« Overall I enjoyed my time with Epic Loon. The game deserves a lot of credit for creating a truly unique and engaging experience. The premise of playing as aliens trying to destroy classic films is a great idea that is significantly different than anything else I have seen before. The game’s art style is also great. The gameplay was a little different than I expected and takes some time to adjust to. After you get used to it though it is surprisingly fun. The game works really well as a multiplayer game as well. » – Read the full review

Score : 6.5/10

« With Epic Loon, the French indie studio Macrales Studio manages to create an entertaining game. Although the game quickly repeats, Epic Loon scores especially points because of the hysteria in the co-op mode, but also for the recognition in the levels. The principle is fairly basic, but on the other hand the control is reasonably innovative. » – Read the full review

« The game is really fun with other players. The 90’s universe is well exploited, a little too much for my taste but hey, the theme is respected. Let’s wait and see if the studio will reveal other « themes » in the future, in DLC . It would be really cool! Also, the SpeedRun mode of the four vHS will lengthen the life of the title a little longer. » – Read the full review
