HEAVE HO Starts Ruining Relationships on August 29
- Warm Up Your Grip with Free Party Demo on Steam -
Paris – Independent developer Le Cartel and tight-gripped game label Devolver Digital have announced physics-based local multiplayer adventure Heave Ho swings onto Nintendo Switch and PC on August 29. The next great couch co-op game also has a free Heave Ho ‘Party Demo’ available starting today on Steam - perfect for any meetups, events, and game nights heavehogame.com.
Heave Ho tasks up to four players with a simple goal – don’t fall to your death! Players will use their own two hands and the outstretched grip of their friends to grapple across each level on their way to victory. Grab one another’s hands, climb across dangling bodies, and swing your pals to safety in a wobbly, dangly mass of limbs. Customize your character with all manner of stylish accessories and zany accoutrement in a vain attempt to remember who you are and which of your hands is the only thing between you and the plummet of doom.
Devolver Digital and LeCartel spent the spring and summer touring Heave Ho around at every major game event around the world where it was met with rave reviews and uproarious laughter. Heave Ho will launch at PAX West 2019 in Seattle where it will also be playable on a 15 foot LED wall at the Devolver Digital booth.

Gladiatorial VR Sim 'GORN' Leaves the Shackles of Early Access
Blood, Dirt, and Nipples in Glorious VR
SOUTH AFRICA – Independent developer Free Lives (Broforce, Genital Jousting) and virtual game publisher Devolver Digital (also Broforce, Genital Jousting) have announced that VR sensation GORN has smashed out of Early Access and launched as GORN v1.0 on SteamVR and Oculus!
GORN is a ludicrously violent VR gladiator simulator featuring a unique, fully physics driven combat engine where combatants creatively execute their most violent colosseum fantasies in virtual reality. The acclaimed VR game entered Early Access in 2017 to high praise and huge success despite players propensity to smash screens and tear down light fixtures in the heat of battle. One player even dislocated their knee cap. Damage to personal property notwithstanding, GORN went on to become one of the top ten VR games in sales and one of the top three in user reviews on Steam during Early Access.
Free Lives spent the past two years adding in everything from new weapons and opponents to local cooperative modes and even a custom language within the GORN universe. That last one is a joke that frankly just got out of hand until they had a full language and a five-track hip-hop EP in said language. The final update in Early Access brings an ultimate showdown with a longtime nemesis, a new weapon, and more alongside SteamVR Index support and slew of fixes and tweaks.
“Our team couldn’t be more pleased to see the continuation of Free Lives’ unbelievable streak of turning weird ass ideas into commercially and critically successful games,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.
