During the Kinda Funny Showcase at E3 today, Muse Games announced a release date for the upcoming Hamsterdam. The kung fu-inspired beat ’em up is slated to launch on August 1 for Nintendo Switch, PC and iOS and Android devices.

The New York-based developer brought its hamster brawler to Kickstarter in 2018 and successfully raised $15,725 thanks to the help of its 699 backers. (Read More)

Crowdfunding Spotlight - Hamsterdam

September 3rd - via:
In the town of Hamsterdam, the evil chinchilla Marlo has kidnapped people, doped everyone up on booze, and opened casinos & a red-light district. This savagery is bad enough, but the bad guy makes the mistake of kidnapping our hero Pimm’s grandpa. Pimm decides to head into town and kick butts left and right in Muse Games’ newest title on Kickstarter: Hamsterdam. This cutesy little title was one of many games available to play at Play NYC. We checked it out in our Coverage Club series after having played it at E3; our Samuel Guglielmo thought it was “a surprising amount of fun”. The developers are now raising funds to finish up the development of this game before its estimated release date of March 2019. (Read More)
