Clunky Hero developer Chaosmonger Studio has announced its next project Schizollama, which is confirmed for release on Switch. Launch timing hasn’t been determined.

If you’ve heard about Schizollama previously, you might be aware of it through Kickstarter. The bad news is that the campaign didn’t end up with successful funding, but Chaosmonger Studio decided to move forward with the project using its own funds.

Schizollama is a run-and-gun platformer with procedurally generated levels. It features “pixel art to achieve a retro-arcade look (think late 80s / early 90s games), promises to entertain different generations of players, with tons of funny splatterish elements, fast-paced action, humor, and randomized levels.”

Here’s some additional information:

You will fight by choosing one of the three llamas mercenaries, hired by a corporation for a single objective: to once and for all end the feud with the alpacas. How? By exterminating them all, of course.

The game’s visuals are created using pixel art to achieve a retro-arcade look (think late 80s / early 90s games). Overall, the game is inspired by both classic titles such as Metal Slug and Turrican, as well as modern games like Broforce and Pizza Tower.

Filled with tons of funny splatterish elements, fast-paced action, various upgrades, weapons, and a lot of humor, the game promises to entertain all generations of gamers.

A group of highly-trained mercenaries is hired by a wise old llama to join an almost impossible mission. The aim of which is to exterminate every alpaca out there. The reason? Well, first of all, they are disgusting beasts, second, they are often confused with llamas, therefore is better for everybody if only one species survives. Aboard a drilling-machine, the llamas will travel a bizarre journey all around the world, digging their way out, collecting funky substances, and fighting an army of alpacas and their beastie allies.
