Igrek Games along with their publisher’s Ultimate Games and Gaming Factory have set a January 2020 release date for the whimsical insect school Bug Academy.
Imagine an insect based moving company. What would that look like? Well Bug Academy did and so much more. At Bug Academy players control a swarm of insects to perform various tasks. With the simple gameplay concept comes crazy and often comical fun.
Players will be tasked to control their swarm of flies, fireflies, mosquitoes, or bees to pass through various challenges laid out at the academy. Each bug type has 7 levels. There are 4 hidden bonus levels and a final exam level. These levels take place across 10 different graphical environments that includes forests, cities, caves, and space.
Challenges or tasks consist of things like herding cattle back into their pin or delivering appliances such as refrigerators to their destination. Other times it might be pulling off a jewel heist, building some type of a structure, or painting a masterpiece. Just be sure to wake up the sleepy insects.
In addition the release will contain 28 hats to unlock and 32 achievements alongside a Steam leaderboard for each of the levels. There are 15 songs to go along with the goofy fun that are made of squeaks, buzzes, and other insect noises.
Bug Academy’s release date is schedule for January, 14, 2020 and will be available on Steam. According to Update #11 posted on the game’s Kickstarter page, a free demo is coming in a few days that will be available to everyone. In addition backers will be receiving their keys some point before January 14.
