Kasedo Games and developer Beard Envy (great name) have announced that roguelite spaceship repair simulator, Uncle Chop’s Rocket Shop, will land on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch in 2024. Previously announced for PC only during the heady IGN indies showcase, this is a hilarious repair sim with ultra-tactile mechanics and a roguelite format that challenges you to fix spaceships on an asteroid-bound service station. Just take a look at the trailer below and I challenge you not to lmao.
From the *kiss* from your demon overlord Uncle Chop, to the tingling nipples, I laughed out loud multiple times watching this for the first time. It’s easy to see why it’s been compared to TV shows such as Rick & Morty and Adventure Time for its dark humour as well as that chunky, quirky art style.
From the press release – You play as Wilbur, a vest-wearing Fox, who carves out a paltry living as a mechanic, repairing as many ships as he can to afford the ever-rising rent payments to his tyrannical boss, Uncle Chop.
With a range of tools, diagnostic devices, parts and workshop appliances, Wilbur will need to correct faults in the modules of procedurally generated spaceships, based on brand-specific manuals which will be acquired along the way. From simple refuel jobs to total mechanical overhauls, you will need to frantically fumble, slice, loosen, tighten, grab and drop and try to complete as many jobs as possible within each daily time limit. Clock in, think fast, work faster and pay the ever-escalating bills forcing you to take on more audacious and risky jobs from a diverse range of oddballs.
Uncle Chop’s Rocket Shop will launch on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2024.
