Tuesday, 1st October 2019 – Team17 has today confirmed a brand new partnership with Seattle-based Aggro Crab Games, which will see the studio’s upcoming title, Going Under, released under Team17’s award-winning games label.
Scheduled for a 2020 release on PC and console platforms, Going Under is a fast-paced, satirical, dungeon crawler set among the ruins of failed and poorly conceived tech startups. Following the adventures of Jackie, an intern at carbonated drinks startup Fizzle, players will venture into the dystopian and chaotic depths of the dungeons below the bright and bubbly campus building, utilising the junk found from fallen companies to battle a variety of monsters and epic bosses.
Caelan Pollock, Co-Founder, Aggro Crab Games, said:
“We’re thrilled to finally announce our partnership with Team17. Our first game out of college, Treadnauts, was heavily inspired by the Worms franchise, so to have signed with Team17’s games label for our sophomore title is a perfect fit. Going Under is an offbeat and chaotic dungeon crawler that’ll feel extremely relevant in today’s fast-paced, high-tech world, and we’re looking forward to sharing more of the game in the months ahead.”
Debbie Bestwick MBE, Chief Executive Officer, Team17 Digital, said:
“The aim of Team17’s games label is to nurture the very best indie developers around the world and help them bring their games to market. Aggro Crab Games immediately caught our eye with Going Under, a satirical take on failed tech startups crossed with dungeon crawler gameplay. We’re excited to start eradicating destructive company cultures and redefining the meaning of boss fights next year!”
Today’s announcement is the latest in a series of recent partnerships signed by Team17 that continue to expand the games label’s portfolio of titles into next year and beyond. Going Under will be released on PC and consoles in 2020.
