Funcom's Conan Chop Chop game may have started off as an April's Fools' joke, but nobody's laughing now. Okay, we sort of are, but it's just because of how adorable Conan looks in this rendition. The full game launches in February 2020.
Conan Chop Chop was announced on 1 April 2018 and it was one of those jokes that everyone suddenly wanted to be true. Funcom and Mighty Kingdom weren't kidding though, and the game soon got an announcement as well as a delay so the dev can add online co-op. Now it's got a date, though, and it's 25 February 2020.
The game is a 1-4 player action-adventure with rogue-like elements, where players get to choose among a "diverse cast of badass warrior gods", including the Barbarian. It offers local and online co-op, which really looks like a blast.
"The treacherous wizard Thoth-Amon has devised a plan to resurrect the ancient evil that is Xaltotun. If he succeeds, he will condemn the world to an eternity of darkness and enslavement. Only you can stop him, but in order to do so you must use all your cunning. All your guile. You must summon all your courage and swordsmanship. You must … Chop Chop!"
Conan Chop Chop comes with a generous assortment of weapons, trinkets and legendary items, all of which will help you tailor your character to your playstyle. Funcom and Mighty Kingdom promise infinite replayability, thanks to randomly generated maps, with plenty of unlockables to make you next playthrough a bit different.
Conan Chop Chop will let players perform different combos as well, which should come in handy against some of the bosses like The Giant Sand Worm of Koth and The Frost Giant of Vanaheim.
All in all, the game looks like a heap of fun. Not to mention that characters' tiny feet have us in stitches over here. You can check out more screenshots in our gallery below.
