The new French indie game studio, Brain in a Vat, has announced their first game – Dump Fever. Dump Fever is a mutiplayer action game that will be released on both PC and Mac. In Dump Fever, the player takes the role of “Super-Dustmen” – an elite force of janitors. The goal of the game is for the player to clean their kingdom at the “Expense of their neighbor.” And as we all know, it is easy to get “The Fever” when cleaning. If the game proves to be as quirky as the description sounds, I just may have to play it!
The first trailer, named “Patriots” was released along with the announcement for the upcoming game. While the trailer does not speak for the gameplay, I am loving the art style. It is a pretty short trailer, only showing us a few of the game’s characters, with music playing in the background. I feel that with that art style and game concept, Dump Fever is filled with potential.
If the concept of a multiplayer cleaning game sounds familiar, you earn a cookie. Here’s hoping Dump Fever will be half as charming as Dust Force, an older game from a different developer, which also had the goal of cleaning.
No release date has been set, but as further information on the game is released you can get your coverage here at Indiegamemag.com.
