Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) today announced Struggling, Frontier Foundry’s debut third-party published title, developed by the Montreal-based studio Chasing Rats Games and arriving… Well, now! Struggling makes a shock entrance into the gaming world and is available for purchase on Steam and Nintendo Switch.

Struggling is the physics-based co-op platformer where up to two players, control the arms of our fleshy hero, Troy, as he sets out on an outrageous adventure. Outrun ravenous rats, joyride a dirt bike, and vault over pools of unmentionable waste, all on your epic quest to unlock Troy’s full potential.

But don’t let Struggling’s unsightly appearance fool you. The keen-eyed among you might recognize its slimy awesomeness from last year’s various industry events. There, Struggling earned high praise including Best in Show, Best Art Direction, Best Audio Design and Public’s Favourite at Montreal Independent Game Awards, IGN’s Top 4 Co-op Game at Pax East and PC Gamer’s E3 Hidden Gem, to name but a few.

Struggling’s attention-grabbing art style combines elements of comedy and horror to submerge players in a hilarious but unsettling world. Our squishy protagonist will need to solve challenging physics-based puzzles using momentum and inertia to swing itself through four visually unique worlds, including horrific labs, perilous canyons, and even feverish hyper-dreams.

As is the case with any self-respecting lab experiment, Troy is an ever-mutating character. Players unlock a range of game-changing powers as they as they navigate increasingly tricky environments. These new skills include time-slowing to dodge fast-moving hazards, detachable arms Troy can make crawl around creepily, and the ability to graft its appendage onto the environment (don’t worry, they grow back). Struggling is out now on Steam and Nintendo Switch.
