'Earl vs. the Mutants' Release Date Set For July

by Rainier on May 28, 2024 @ 2:28 p.m. PDT

Earl vs. the Mutants is a post-apocalyptic top-down survival roguelite, where you play as an exterminator on a mission to save humanity from never-ending waves of mutants!

Soon enough, players will be able to strap themselves into their death machines, and plow through all manner of mutant menaces in a post-apocalyptic battle for survival.

Earl vs. the Mutants hurls players into the battered boots of blue-collar mutant assassin, Earl, in the aftermath of a nuclear apocalypse. Putting a unique spin on the traditional roguelite formula, it foregoes dingy dungeon-crawling and steers players towards high-octane action from behind the wheel, as they commandeer an assortment of vehicles to tackle mutant hordes head-on (in many cases heads off). The aim of the game, ultimately, is survival.

Encouraging a more intense, confrontational style of gameplay, Earl vs. the Mutants urges players to throw themselves into waves of formidable foes instead of diligently dodging. Eradicating irradiated baddies will see them unlock randomized upgrades — from mounted weaponry to devastating drones — to help them craft the ultimate car-tastrophe on wheels. Only truly killer rigs will see off the game’s more brutal bosses.

Falling State Inc. is delighted to unveil that Earl vs. the Mutants is speeding its way towards a July 11 launch on Steam.

Following its playable debut at Steam Next Fest earlier this year, the developers have been working hard to overhaul the graphics. With this new lick of paint, the game is now looking and running better than ever before.

Born from longtime fans of action-roguelites, Earl vs. the Mutants promises players all the excitement of the genre, with additional dollops of devastation.

Key Features:

  • QUICK RUNS: Enjoy casual gameplay with runs averaging 10 minutes
  • DYNAMIC BUILDS: Each attempt is different, powered by an expanding list of in-run upgrades
  • PROGRESSION: Make progress across runs via unlocked vehicles and stat-based permanent upgrades
  • VEHICLE COMBAT: Move FAST and crash into mutants head on! Colliding with enemies is half the fun, not something to be avoided
  • 3D ENVIRONMENTS: Navigate the 3D terrains strategically, using the elevation to jump over enemies and hide behind mountains
  • BOSS BATTLES: Survive an onslaught of mutant waves, then face off against their formidable bosses

Earl vs. the Mutants is coming to PC (Steam) on July 11, 2024.
