The long-awaited mobile rogue-like Unhappy Raccoon from Big-Cat Studio, which was only announced very recently, has now entered beta testing and will officially launch on October 8th. Having opened up for pre-registration about a week or two ago, it’s nice to see the game moving at a brisk pace and to know we won’t have to wait too long to see the full product.
This interesting little gem is a top-down action roguelike that sees you step into an infinite universe created by the raccoon god. Using a roster of various fluffy anthropomorphic heroes, you enter this world to explore a wide variety of unknown universes, collecting loot and upgrading your characters as you do so.
Along with the basic heroes you’ll play, you can also unlock companions that will boost your stats and skills and unlock even more ways to play. Combine this with the wide variety of skills each character has, and the many paths you can take down those skill trees, and you have a lot of different ways to explore the galaxy at your own leisure.
Of course, there’s also plenty of loot to find and pick up across your adventure, each of which also affects your stats in different ways. Want to be a critical damage focused gunslinger? Go for it! Would you rather be a sword-wielding badass who rips through hordes of robot enemies like paper? Why not?! There are so many different ways to prioritize your skill set for each character, and you’re basically free to play them exactly how you want.
The best news is that all the progress you make during this test will carry over to the full launch, so don’t fear getting too invested just to have your progress wiped. If you’d like to see what all the fuss is about for yourself, you can download the beta via the Testflight link on iOS, which you can get by participating in official disagreement, or that Tap Tap the page alternative to Android. You can also go to one of the links below this article to pre-register! In the meantime, stay tuned to the official Unhappy Raccoon website or the official Twitter account for more updates!
