From developer Igrek Games and publishers Gaming Factory S.A. and Ultimate Games S.A. comes a 2.5D arcade bug training experience in Bug Academy.
After a successful Kickstarter funding campaign in January of 2019, Bug Academy is now ready for release. In the game, different insects including flies, fireflies, mosquitoes, and bees are trained to do different tasks. Covering various situations of insect life, the game puts insects to work guarding animals in pastures, working in mines, putting out fires, catching ghosts, painting pictures, and firing rockets into space.
Bug Academy allows you to control insects and even their entire swarm. The goal is to perform tasks the best or the fastest. The gameplay is quick and intense. What is important is that the vast majority of elements are distinguished by their interactivity – they can be destroyed, moved or grabbed. The insects themselves are also diverse because each species has special abilities.Jacek Perzanowsk, Igrek Games Founder and Bug Academy Creator
