Surely, you can trust these mechanics
4J Studios is excited to throw the covers off Manic Mechanics, an accelerated, mechanically-minded reinvention to chaotic couch co-op. Crashing onto Nintendo Switch on July 13, this high-octane party game with local and online co-op is the first game to be both developed and published by 4J Studios, the team that brought the gaming phenomenon Minecraft to consoles.
In Manic Mechanics, up to four players pull on their overalls and head to the gear-obsessed Octane Isle, looking to make a name for themselves as travelling mechanics. Players challenge the Master Mechanics who rule the island to prove their crew is worthy of joining the mechanics guild.
The aim of the game is to fix as many cars (or trucks, choppers, tractors, mini-subs, UFOs…) as possible before time runs out. This may sound easy, but the faster the mechanics work, the more chaos is unleashed. Intricate mechanical processes are hindered by fuel spills, exploding tires, short-circuiting robots, stampeding cows and even alien abductions, with hilariously chaotic consequences.
With five different neighborhoods on Octane Isle to experience, this won’t be an easy ride. So, grab your toolbelt, round up your friends and see if you have what it takes to become Master Mechanics.
