Developed by LOOT Entertainment (The Last Tinker), Fluster Cluck is a couch co-op shooter that will be available for the PlayStation 4 on October 21 in North America and October 22 in Europe. The price will be “reasonable,” with PlayStation Plus members set to receive an additional discount.
After explaining how Fluster Cluck is “a cartoony, pick-up-and-play twin-stick shooter with resource gathering elements,” LOOT talked about the premise:
The universe is driven by applied chikkin technologies, pioneered by the Chikkin Koop corporation. And, predictably, the galaxy’s appetite for chikkin product creates ever greater strain on chikkin resources. To avert wars, resource protests, rolling brownouts, melting glaciers and bad reruns on TV, Chikkin Koop has deployed the ultimate resource collector: the Chikkinizer.
Everything dropped into the Chikkinizer — cows, camels, zombies, treasure chests, coworkers — is instantly transformed into chikkin. And as you start the game as a lowly Chikkin Koop employee, desperately trying to climb the corporate ladder, it is your job to go get those chikkins.
Fluster Cluck includes a single-player and co-op campaign, with the DualShock 4’s speaker also being utilized. As for a PlayStation Vita version, they said, “We could certainly look at a Vita version, but right now we’re completely focused on PS4 for October 21.”
