Team17 and Fika Productions have today launched zany seafaring cooperative roguelite, Ship of Fools, on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam for PC. Set sail on an adventure to counter The Everlasting Storm and the Aquapocalypse, and join the plucky eponymous and anthropomorphic Fools as they fight against monstrous leviathans from the deep and protect their valiant ship, Stormstrider.
As they chart new courses throughout the rocky outcrops that make up their threatened homeland Archipelago, the Fools – either adventuring solo or with a fellow Fool via online or local multiplayer – will face ship boardings from enemies, have to manoeuvre cannons on deck and defend themselves from attack, and conduct multiple runs through choppy waters to avert the end of their world. Each of the Fools treasure their very own heirloom that imbue them with a passive abilities, such as Shelbie’s soothing shell that increases fire rates and projectile speed, or Finley’s handy hat that unlocks a random reward every time they repair Stormstrider!
