Most people don’t want to get old, but if it involves “pimped up” scooters and creating havoc, it can’t be all bad, right? Well, that’s until the Grim Reaper shows up and tries to ruin the party. In Coffin Dodgers, players take on the role of retirement village residents who are trying to race their way to a few more years on Earth. Battle the Grim Reaper and his zombie army in the hopes of surviving for a few more nights.
The retirement village just got a little bit larger. Originally launched on Steam for PC and Mac, Coffin Dodgers is now making its way onto PlayStation 4 and Xbox One systems. Milky Tea Studio, the original creator of Coffin Dodgers, has teamed up with Wales Interactive to get the game on consoles. Jon Holmes, the founder of Milky Tea Studio, says that they believe the game’s “natural home is on console and [that] is why we have been searching for the right partner who is passionate about this game as much as we are.” They found that partner in Wales Interactive, who has worked on multiple games for varying consoles.
Coffin Dodgers has multiple game modes including a story mode, time trial, open world, and a multiplayer mode with over thirteen racetracks upon which to compete. With some darker comedy in-game, players can use varying “wacky” weapons to combat each other. Knock fellow players off their scooters and cause some big crashes; getting old certainly doesn’t have to be boring.
Coffin Dodgers is slated for release on Xbox One and PS4 in early 2016. For more information on Coffin Dodgers, check out the game’s official website as well as the websites for Milky Tea Studio and Wales Interactive. For those who just don’t want to wait to race against the Reaper, Coffin Dodgers is available on Steam for PC and Mac for $10.99 USD.
