"CITY OF ROTT: STREETS OF ROTT" PRESS RELEASE (Posted: 14 February 2017)
Back in 2010, we had the opportunity to interview independent-animator F. Sudol about his work (you can read that interview here). One of the questions we asked him was if he had thought of a video game version, and now, in 2017, F. Sudol has released CITY OF ROTT: STREETS OF ROTT! The game adaptation of his hit movie and signature style is a sendup to old-school arcade beat-em ups.
Prepare for the fight! CITY OF ROTT: STREETS OF ROTT is now on Steam!
Brawl your way through hordes of decay in the Streets of Rott, an
arcade style, side-scrolling beat ‘em up where destroying the junk
littering the streets, gives you a big edge over your enemy.
Featuring a skull-smashing arsenal of fighting moves, weaponry and
vehicles, play as an old man with a walker, a tough guy with a circular
saw or a mysterious woman, and bring peace to the City of Rott.
One of the biggest new twists in this beat ‘em up, is the ability to demolish the city’s junk piles to destroy your enemy. Or just beat ‘em up! In CITY OF ROTT: STREETS OF ROTT, a brand new, arcade style brawler set for a worldwide February 14, 2017 release on Steam store.steampowered.com/app/580880 from FSudol Art Games and BlackArro Productions, for PC, Mac and Linux.
Based on the gory, animated CITY OF ROTT movies (CITY OF ROTT reached 2006’s Netflix DVD, Blockbuster Video, Hollywood Video, Movie Gallery stores), this post apocalyptic brawler (set in a world after Blockbuster Video, Hollywood Video, Movie Gallery stores) features three unique, playable characters, Fred, Max and Sarah, as well as three separate bonus characters for co-op play, tasked with pummeling their way through endless hordes of Rott over eight intense stages of mayhem.
Enemies range from lowly Rotter goons, brutish thugs, to more dangerous undead, including Tossers, Floaters, Crawlers and Monstrous Bosses. If their numbers aren’t kept down, they quickly fill the streets to overwhelm the hero. So gain the edge by destroying junk cars, rubble, trashcans, vending machines, classic explosive red barrels and more, demolishing the Rotter Hordes as they perish in the aftermath. With a full arsenal of fighting moves, weaponry (hand guns, shotguns, machine guns, explosives, bashing barrels, energy shields, power shots, shovels) and vehicles (clunky cars, revving motorcycles and skidding skateboards), it’s up to our heroes to fight back and bring peace to the Streets of Rott.
