Paris – Independent developer Le Cartel and tight-gripped game label Devolver Digital have launched the physics-based local multiplayer game Heave Ho on Nintendo Switch and PC. Heave Ho has been hailed as the leading contender for 2019’s LMPGOTY [Local Multiplayer Game of the Year] by nearly everyone, except for that one dude Leonard who – honestly – sucks at games anyway.
Heave Ho tasks up to four players with a simple goal – don’t fall to your death! Players will use their own two hands and the outstretched grip of their friends to grapple across each level on their way to victory. Grab one another’s hands, climb across dangling bodies, and swing your pals to safety in a wobbly, dangly mass of limbs. Customize your character with all manner of stylish accessories and zany accoutrement in a vain attempt to remember who you are and which of your hands is the only thing between you and the plummet of doom.
Heave Ho is playable at PAX West all weekend on a 20-foot 4K screen and at the launch party in Paris that, well, you weren’t invited to anyway. Awkward. Follow @LeCartelStudio on Twitter to catch the latest on Heave Ho and maybe make a friend along the way too.
