From Press Release:
Monday, 15th August 2022 – Team17 and Fika Productions have announced that bombastic solo or two-player co-op roguelite, Ship of Fools, will launch on 22nd November. Set among the islands and outcrops of the Archipelago, Ship of Fools follows a group of plucky sailors – The Fools – as they set out across the choppy waters of their watery world, combat creatures from the deep, and attempt to thwart The Everlasting Storm and the Aquapocalypse! Along the way, the Fools will have to work together and master the cannons, repair their ship – Stormstrider – from damage caused by monstrous boarding parties and missile lobbing leviathans, and tread an unlikely path to victory!
Disembarking on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, Ship of Fools and its cast of characters – each with their own special abilities to help steer the crew to success – will encounter varied roguelite runs through the Archipelago. Each time they start a new voyage they’ll find something new to experience, whether that’s some of the 100+ unique trinkets to find and collect (and to combine as part of a winning strategy) or strange new islands to explore.
Ship of Fools key features include:
- Bombastic combat – Frantic ship-based combat against colossal leviathans and horrifying creatures from across the deep, dark waters of the Archipelago
- Frantic co-op experience – Designed from the keel up for co-op play, manage ship repairs in the heat of battle, reload and re-manoeuvre cannons, and use paddles to strike enemies as they board the Stormstrider
- Endless replayability – Upgrade your crew and unlock items and additional Fools to take on the ever-changing seas, with multiple runs needed to avert the Aquapocalypse.
Ship of Fools will be available to play on the Team17 consumer booth (Hall 7.1/B-040) at next week’s Gamescom in Cologne, and can be wishlisted on Steam right now!
