Welcome to Summer Catchers! Today marks the first day of your epic road trip as Chu, a young girl from northern lands who has never seen summer. She dreams of the oceans, mountains and the wondrous world to discover. With her trusty wooden car, you must travel to distant lands full of mystery and complete your quest of finally seeing summer.
But before we head out, let’s make sure we have everything we need!
First things first, we need to take a look at where we are going. There are lots of sights to see along the way so you better check out this new launch trailer to make sure you don’t miss anything!
Next we need to stock up on supplies. Each level in Summer Catchers is “endless” in a sense, where you traverse the terrain using various tools for your car like battering rams, speed boosters, and more to go as long as you can. If you crash, you can repair your car and try again until you complete all the goals for that mission. During these wild rides you will not only be tasked with various missions but might have random encounters with strange creatures who can both aid or hinder your quest. Spend the mushrooms you collect in the various shops to stockpile your car add ons because each item is a one time use only.
Of course any road trip is better with a friend and in Summer Catchers you can team up with a friend in the local co-op mode. It can be activated at anytime as your friend can take control of Chu’s little brother, Lil Bro, and his trusty side car. In the main gameplay mode each player must take turns using tools and while Chu is working on her car, Lil Bro is free to explore the world. Lil Bro can interact with NPCs and the environment in a way Chu cannot in order to find secrets, uncover stashes of mushrooms, as well as find the secret chewing gum in each stage and unleash its hidden power.
Finally the rule of any road trip is put together an epic soundtrack for your journey. Summer Catchers is no exception with its thumping OST from Geek Pilot Soundworks. Available to purchase on Steam or to stream on your platform of choice, you can bop and rock along to your favourite jams from this charming adventure.
