Gastronomic puzzle-platformer Organic Panic comes to PS4 in March

Last Limb’s labour of love promises chaotic, ‘anything-goes’ fun

When my brother, Anatole, and I first hatched the plan to make a game independently, we never imagined where it would take us.

We started off thinking about the kinds of games we grew up with and how much fun playing games together has always been. We love old-school action-platformers and games that let you experiment creatively with how you solve problems, so combining those ideas was essential. It’s fair to say we’re influenced by classics like Chaos, Lemmings, Worms, Gears, and LittleBigPlanet, but we wanted to push it further with totally destructible environments and fluid dynamics!

What came from that vision is our debut title, Organic Panic, which we’re beyond excited to announce is coming to PS4 this March!

Organic Panic is a physics-based puzzle-platformer that pits the main food groups against each other in a chaotically fun and lighthearted battle royale extravaganza!

What brings all the madness together is the incredible D.A.F.T – Destructible and Fluid Technology – Engine. Anything goes, because nearly every environmental element (characters, platforms, enemies, weapons, etc.) can be controlled and manipulated in some clever way.

Earth can be smashed through, wood floats and burns, lightning conducts, ice slips and melts, water flows and douses fire, rubber bounces, acid disintegrates, and the list goes on! Basically you’re left to your own devices as to how to use all the powers and physics at your disposal.

It’s a seriously big game with over 200 highly refined and totally destructible levels of action and puzzles, but we keep it fresh with new worlds and game modes to explore. The single-player quest is driven by a comedic story, but we’ve also got local couch co-op and versus modes for up to four! The controls are straightforward enough that you can easily pull newcomers in, but there are still enough tools for hardcore players to discover their own unique strategies to go for gold on the leaderboards.

We’ve had quite the adventure with Organic Panic, from our successful Kickstarter to shows like PAX Prime, PAX East, and IndieCade. We’ll be at PAX East with the game again this year, so feel free to drop by to say hi or play a quick match – we’ve got lots of freebies left over from our Kickstarter to dish out!

Watching people play the final product is always so cool for us. We designed most of the levels with multiple ways to solve them, so we still see people figure things out in ways we hadn’t even imagined. I watch my son play it and he rips through them in crazy ways (he’s six now, though he’s been testing the game for three years already – child services should have really been knocking at my door a long time ago for that much child labour!).

This type of genuine freedom to brainstorm your own solution to any problem is the backbone of Organic Panic, and it’s why we can’t wait to get the final product in the PlayStation community’s hands.

You can join the food fight when Organic Panic arrives on PlayStation Store for PS4 in March!

Looks fun

Any idea on a price? (dunno if developers are still allowed to mention it)

It’s hard to tell wirh just screenshots to go on but it sems to have a Worms kinda vibe going on (which would be no bad thing). Is that a fair comparison or is that just my own false impression?

The screenshots are a tad misleading in that regard. After watching the video the action is very fluid – I got a Smash Bros vibe but I don’t know how it controls.

Think Worms meets Angry Birds after you’ve taken an ecstasy tablet and gone bunjee jumping! this looks insane, cant wait to get my hands on a copy to review and make some videos on youtube!

hook me up developers!

Don’t forget to give your KS-backers an update, too. Was kinda surprised to read the info here first and not on Kickstarter. Still I’m glad that I will finally be able to try out Organic Panic. BTW: #TeamCheese ;)
