'Cranked Up' Also Coming to Nintendo Switch, New Co-op Modes Unveiled

Cranked Up is a challenging and adventurous platformer where animal donuts have rockets and try to save their favorite cup of coffee - Mr. Mug.

An evil Hawaiian pizza has taken over, captured your favorite cup of coffee and threatens to cover all the world's food with pineapple. Your mission will be to save the cup (and the world at the same time).

Yup - it’s not supposed to make much sense...

Featuring a full single-player campaign and even more fun with friends in the 4-player co-op mode (both online and offline), players can expect hours of rocket-boosted fun as they traverse a variety of zany environments and challenges. Cranked Up is set to surprise with a set of unusual and engaging characters and in an offbeat universe that no one really understands (not even the developers).

Currently available through Steam Early Access, Cranked Up is coming to Nintendo Switch at the end of 2020.

The French indie developer BBlack Studio also lifted the veil on three new cooperative modes for the zany donut-themed game. Gamers can solve puzzles with the help of a buddy in the new 2 player mode, or test the bonds of their friendship - literally - in the two tethered coop formats for 2-4 players. It’s as crazy as it looks! 

There is more! Cranked Up features a single-player Adventure campaign, as well as 4-player Versus mode, Time Trial and the Floor is Lava. Gamers can expect hours of rocket-boosted fun as they traverse a variety of wacky environments and challenges.

The Steam Early Access version includes 50 levels, hidden collectibles, secret levels, and unlockable exclusive characters. 

Key Features:

  • Roll, jump, bounce and maneuver a rocket-boosted donut to discover and explore increasingly more challenging levels across two different zany worlds - 50 levels in total! Finish each level by dunking in a cup of coffee.
  • Save Mr. Mug - everyone’s favorite cup of coffee - thwart a pineapple, and find out who is controlling the world in a complete single-player campaign. Revisit levels to collect6 hidden donuts, collecting all sugar boosts and discover secret levels.
  • Play with up to four friends cooperatively in a completely offbeat universe, filled with sugared power-ups, evil pizza slices, and other bizarro elements. It’s not supposed to make any sense! 
  • Race each other in Versus Mode, go head-to-head and break a pal’s time record in Time Trial or avoid the ground in The Floor is Lava. See who gets to the top of the leaderboard! 
  • Unlock all 10 glazed donut characters, and customize your own gang of sweetened ring-shaped fried dough. Yummy! 

Cranked Up is available through Steam Early Access for $14.99 USD.
