Arrow Heads is a chaotic multiplayer brawl for up to four players, brought to you by indie-developers OddBird. This isometric game pits your ‘odd birds’ against each other in archery-based mayhem with two game modes, Arena and Arcade. You can go to battle against your friends, locally and online, or buddy up to survive in co-op. If firing arrows in crazy environments as a fearsome flock wasn’t quite enough, there are some unlockable projectiles you can fire at your feathered friends, such as…Unicorns?!
“When we started developing Arrow Heads, our goal was to create a game that allowed its players to experience the classic fun and competitiveness of local multiplayer games,” said Benjamin Scott, Co-founder of OddBird. “We couldn’t be more excited that what began as a passion project will soon be available for everyone to play. We think people of all ages will really enjoy this silly but engaging game.”
Arrow Heads began as a submission for the Level Up Showcase, the first event of its kind in Canada that showcases the most talented students in game design, animation and computer science programs from colleges and universities across Ontario. With its unique shooting mechanic, fun design and exciting level of competition, Arrow Heads won Best Overall Game and Artistic Achievement at the 2016 Level Up Showcase competition. Arrow Heads was also the winner of the 2016 ESAC Student Game Competition and was named a semifinalist for the 2016 Adobe Design Achievement Awards.
Arrow Heads will be available on September 21, 2017 for Windows PC via Steam for $14.99. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will follow in early 2018. For more information, visit the official site, like on Facebook or follow on Twitter.
