The battle for fame and fortune just got a whole lot more festive! After launching into Steam Early Access last week, the action rogue-lite bullet hell game, The Crackpet Show, is already receiving its first update! Developer Vixa Games and publisher Ravenage Games were overcome with the holiday spirit, and wanted to give their players the gift of new content! This update features a new boss, item, perk, and playable character, alongside a few minor bug fixes. The New Update Includes:
New Perk — Healing Combo: When healing, this perk has a chance of dropping an additional healing heart. It’s a one-two punch of medical care!
New Boss — Host Parrot: The host of the show renegotiated their contract so they could have more screen time. Going talon-to-talon with the competitors wasn’t exactly what they had in mind, but hey, that’s show biz!
New Special Item — Magic Trick: Upon use, this item creates a wave that expands from the player outward in every direction, eliminating all enemy projectiles. A bullet-less bullet hell? Now THAT’S a magic trick!
New Character — Evil Goat: Horns? Check. Beard? Check. Hooves? Check. An insatiable thirst for blood? Check. Yep, that’s an Evil Goat.
A Festive Coat of Paint: The blood-stained rooms of The Crackpet Show will be adorned with Christmas decorations throughout the holiday season.
The Crackpet Show is now available in Early Access via Steam, with a 15% discount for a limited time. The game will be regularly updated with more additional content throughout the Steam Early Access period, including new characters, bosses, weapons, and more, leading up to a full launch on PC and consoles in 2022.
