4J Studios has announced new ports for Manic Mechanics, their wacky cooperative action/party game.
Manic Mechanics is coming to Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on March 7th. The party game was originally released for Switch back in July 2023.
“When Manic Mechanics first arrived on Switch, we were mostly asked two questions… ‘Is it going to be on other platforms?’ and ‘Can you add a competitive mode?’ I’m delighted that I can now answer ‘Yes!’ to both,” says 4J Studios’ Chairman, Chris van der Kuyl. “The new features the team have added have made an amazing game even better and I’m delighted that it will now be available to the widest possible audience.”
Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:
GRAB YOUR TOOLS AND GET SET FOR SOME CO-OP MECHANICAL MAYHEM!
It’s time to dust off your overalls and hitch on your toolbelt in Manic Mechanics – a chaotic couch co-op game where you and up to three fellow grease monkeys serve the car-obsessed residents of Octane Isle.
Your mission? Work your way through Octane Isle’s five neighborhoods, challenging the Master Mechanics that rule each part of town. Repair as many cars, trucks, choppers, tractors, mini-subs (and even UFOs) as possible to prove your worth in this hectic race against the clock.
No two games are the same as you work your way through 25 unique garage levels, each one more challenging than the last. Completing a garage is one thing, but mastering it and beating your team’s best score requires coordination, skill, and determination.
This is couch co-op chaos for you and up to three other players, working as a finely-tuned machine across local, wireless and online play. Track your team’s best scores, unlock new characters and discover hidden secrets as you explore Octane Isle together.
The faster you work, the more chaos is unleashed. Fuel spills ignite, tires explode, robots short-circuit, cows stampede and aliens abduct… just about anything can happen in Octane Isle. But with teamwork, skill – and maybe just a little luck – you’ll earn the right to call yourselves Manic Mechanics!
