EGX Rezzed 2019 Hands-On: Drink More Glurp

Somewhere in deep space, and alien race detect a signal which turns out to be the 1936 Olympics. They are inspired to create their own games, and years later, things seem to have gone a little awry. This is the premise behind a weird and hilarious game called Drink More Glurp.

Currently being developed by CATASTROPHIC_OVERLOAD, Drink More Glurp is a hot seat, physics based party game. Up to 20 players take turns in playing a variety of events, from simple running and hurdling, to throwing boxes and trying to hit a series of targets with basketballs.

This is made more tricky because you have to do everything using your arms, which are each controlled independently by one of the analogue sticks. The trick with movement is to try and get your arms moving in sync to make more ground quickly.

As if this wasn’t bad enough, the sponsors are in complete control of the game. Drink More Glurp contains numerous different sponsors, each having a different effect on how each round plays. So, for example, in one round, there might be less gravity. Or your athlete will be wearing handcuffs, or have laser arms.

All events and sponsors are randomly generated, so you’ll get a completely different experience each time. Overall, Drink More Glurp was tonnes of fun to play and, with all the different possible combinations, there’s sure to be a tonne of replay value to it. There’s also a challenge mode in the game for people who want to play solo.

Drink More Glurp is currently in development. You can find out more on Steam or on the game’s official website.
