Digital Innovative Design & Technology Center (DIDTC)’s development team, Quantum Peaks, and DigiPen Game Studios today announced the launch of Bloody Bunny, The Game, a Nintendo Switch™ exclusive title that is now available on the Nintendo eShop.
Bloody Bunny, The Game is a fast-paced hack-and-slash action title where the events from Thailand-based 2Spot Studio’s popular animated web series, Bloody Bunny: The First Blood, come to life. The game is adapted from the animation and reintroduces familiar characters like Bloody Bunny, Mumu, Dark Rabbit, and the Skull Minions. Combining third-person action combat, challenging gameplay, and dynamic weapon upgrading mechanics, players will get to control the titular character and experience the deliciously dark storyline in Bloody Bunny: The First Blood for themselves.
Bloody Bunny, The Game offers two playthrough modes: Story Mode and Endless Mode. In Story Mode, players have to explore and survive the post-apocalyptic world where humans have been turned into dolls by an evil, nameless organization. While all other dolls have lost their memories and identities, Bloody Bunny awakens retaining hers. She is horrified to realize that her little sister, Mumu, has also been turned into a doll, and this drives Bloody Bunny to seek revenge and stop the organization.
Players have to fight their way through seven levels of enemies and nine boss stages in order to help Bloody Bunny get her revenge. After successfully completing a playthrough of Story Mode, players will then unlock Endless Mode, which is a continuous battle arena where they can slash their way through waves of enemies from all the different levels.
“Even though Quantum Peaks is a developer team that was started by a group of students and fresh graduates, we are eager to create games with unique and varied player experiences,” says Mr. Napat Panthongsem, Producer, Quantum Peaks. “This game shows that Thai developers can produce excellent video games the entire world will enjoy!”
“DIDTC is very excited about the launch of Bloody Bunny, The Game. This title was made by a group of 10 students and fresh graduates, and this process of developing a game for the Nintendo Switch™ has been a great learning experience for all of us,” says Mr. Tanat Jiravansirikul, DIDTC Director. “We hope that this will pave the way for more independent games from Thailand to find global success.”
Bloody Bunny, The Game is the first of multiple games that DGS will be publishing with DIDTC for the Nintendo Switch™. There are currently three other games in the pipeline. Mr. Jason Chu, Chief Operating Officer — International, DigiPen Game Studios, says: “We look forward to continuing our strong partnership with DIDTC as we train more Thai students to become skilled game developers for the global digital economy.”
