Conan Chop Chop, the upcoming fantasy stick figure sim from Funcom, is pushing back its release date until Q2 2020.
Developers Mighty Kingdom are still busily working away on straightening those sticks and drawing out more figures for this hack and slash set in the Conan The Barbarian universe. Originally something of a joke, the tongue in cheek trailer that appeared in 2019 now needs more time to make the game as awesome as possible for launch. The title was due to hit PC and Consoles on the 25 February but this delay doesn’t mean that there is anything to worry about.
“We are almost at the finish line. The additional time is to ensure that the game is optimized for online multiplayer and to give us a chance to add some polish here and there. It’s basically all about getting that final Chop in place,” says Mighty Kingdom CEO Philip Mayes, adding that, “This isn’t merely a one-chop game. This is Conan Chop Chop, and that necessitates extra attention to detail.”
While the original concept for Conan Chop Chop was an April fool’s joke, you can check out the trailer here, the game that arrived at E3 2019 was something else entirely. This roguelite co-op hack and slash allows up to 4 players to simultaneously enter the barbaric world of Conan. While there, they can slash and swipe their way through hordes of enemies, all while dressed up in a cute chibi style animated front. The reception was so positive that players on PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch are due to get a chance to jump into the action.
We don’t have all the details yet for Conan Chop Chop release date but we do know that this adorable action game is on our chopping list for the year. If you don’t want to see this hack make any more puns like this then head over to the Conan Chop Chop Steam Store page to find out more about the adorable carnage.
