BUCK, an award-winning animation house, has unveiled their first original game title, Let’s! Revolution!, during The MIX Direct online showcase. The game is a unique combination of deductive tile-flipping, similar to Minesweeper, and tactical turn-based strategy. Players will have the opportunity to play as one of six characters, each with their own twist on the basic game mechanics. Let’s! Revolution! takes place in the Kingdom of Beebom, a land plagued by a vain and despotic King.
Players will have to embark on a perilous journey through the lands of Beebom, hunting down the repugnant King, and gearing up along the way with powerful items and abilities for a final showdown in Beebom City.
The playable characters in Let’s! Revolution! come from various regions in Beebom, each facing unique challenges caused by the odious King. The game’s design and mechanics reflect the culture of each hero, giving players an immersive experience. Creative Director Michael Highland stated that they aimed to create a game that would satisfy both BUCK’s animation fans and players who love depth in their games. BUCK is known for delivering outstanding animations for clients such as Riot Games, EA, Apple, and Microsoft. Let’s! Revolution! is their first original game, and they have put meticulous attention to detail and visual design, bringing the world of Beebom to life with charming hand-drawn animations and an evocative score.
Art Director Emily Suvanvej drew inspiration from colorful and bright concepts with a playful twist, creating a style reminiscent of Katamari Damacy, Studio Ghibli, and Moebius. The game’s design, from the squishy character animations to the UI and sound design, exudes playfulness and charm.
Let’s! Revolution! is set to release on PC and Mac via Steam and Steam Deck in Summer 2023. To learn more, visit www.letsrevolution.com, and follow Let’s! Revolution! on Twitter and Instagram for the latest updates.
