Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion releases on October 9

Sir Sniff, Doc Turd, Lord Poop and Friar Krap…these orcs must really stink!

Next week, Casual Brothers Games plans to unleash its gastastic new game, Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion, on XBLA and PSN. A self-proclaimed “cooperative gas-and-slash action game,” Orc Attack mixes things up from previous orc-inspired games by putting the player in charge of these big smellies. Now that the tables have been turned, orcs such as Sir Sniff, Doc Turd, Lord Poop and Friar Krap must fart and burp with reckless abandon in order to defeat the “pollution spreading humans.”

Up to four players, local or online, can unleash “solo flatulent attacks” or team up to “combine farts and belches for crowd-clearing combos.” The game features 16 levels that take place in four different environments. There are also various modes to play, such as Magic and Dirty mode. By the looks of the gameplay trailer, there is a leveling system in the game allowing players to boost their characters’ abilities. The stronger the orc, the easier it will be to earn in-game currency to purchase weapons, gear, power-ups and more.

Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion is set to launch on Xbox Live Arcade on October 9.

Before E3 2013, Spider Studios, whom are previously known for developing Mars: War Logs, announced their latest game in development, Bound by Flame. Published by Focus Home Interactive, Bound by Flame was set to be released on XBLA, PSN, and Steam by the end of 2013. However, based on a press release yesterday, the title has been delayed to early 2014.
