Four years after their debut game Pressure (PC), the Stuttgart-based studio Chasing Carrots is rolling out a completely overhauled sequel to follow up on their high-octane arcade game. Pressure Overdrive takes players on a wild ride as they fight against the evil Count Soap, who has stolen the water from all surrounding rivers to fill his gigantic ‘Uber-Spa’. As the pilot of a steam-powered and heavily armed buggy, players have to ram and shoot their way through hordes of crazy enemies, including a series of powerful bosses. In between missions, they get to pimp their ride with a variety of upgrades and customization options.
When Chasing Carrots launched the original Pressure in 2013, they knew they had created a unique action-arcade game. Their follow-up game Pressure Overdrive improves on the original concept and appeals to a broad audience with its entertaining blend of arcade action and four-wheeled shoot ‘em up. On top of the new twin stick control scheme, the game offers additional weapons, new upgrade paths, an endless mode and couch co-op for playing with your friends. Plus a new tutorial level that will help players get into the game.
“We have put a lot of time and energy into developing Pressure Overdrive. The result is a game that will appeal to all sorts of players and let everyone have a great time, regardless of their genre preferences. We are very proud of that”, says Josef Vorbeck, Producer at Chasing Carrots. In order to appeal to a wider audience on a technical level as well, Pressure Overdrive will be available for consoles (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One). Pressure Overdrive launches July 25th on Steam (Windows, MacOS, Linux) and PlayStation and is priced at $12.99. The game will launch on Xbox One on July 26th.
