Holy Potatoes! We’re In Space?!, the second game in the wacky Holy Potatoes! series, will launch on the PlayStation 4 on January 15, 2019. Publisher Rising Star Games announced the release date this morning and is showing off a brand new trailer, which you can check out above!
Holy Potatoes! We’re In Space?! is a management sim that tasks you with exploring the galaxy in your own fancy spaceship. As you explore new planets, you’ll come across a variety of interesting characters with names and personalities that may remind you of some famous real-world personalities or fictional heroes.
Throughout your journey you’ll need to recruit new crew-members, upgrade your ship, and complete events you’ll unlock by exploring new corners of the galaxy. You’re not going to see eye-to-eye with everyone you meet, and so you’ll have to occasionally engage in some strategic, turn-based combat. It looks wonderfully lighthearted and surprisingly complex.
Here’s a little more info about the Holy Potatoes! We’re In Space?! from this morning’s press release:
- Micro-manage your crew and craft weapons to create the greatest spaceship ever seen.
- Fight enemy ships in turn-based combat – will you show mercy or blast them to tater tots?
- Explore the universe to complete missions and uncover an ever-changing storyline.
- Want stress-free pew-pew action? Try Casual mode and take the pressure off!
- A charming, vegetabulous soundtrack of over 150 tracks by the talented Jeff “Pumodi” Brice will keep you entertained while blasting your foes to bits!
