Get ready for a wild first day back at school with the launch of Kraken Academy!!, out now!Join forces with a magical kraken to manipulate time and save the world in this colorful and comedic anime-inspired adventure
Today developer Happy Broccoli Games and publisher Fellow Traveller launched Kraken Academy!! across Steam, Humble and GOG stores. Kraken Academy!! is available for $17.99 USD and currently features a 20% discount for the next seven days.
Developed by a team of just three people, Kraken Academy!! sees players join forces with a magical Kraken to uncover the Traitor, a malevolent mastermind, who could be anyone at their new high school.
Inspired by 90s comedy anime, the light-hearted narrative features a melting pot of wacky personalities. In the Music Club alone you will meet pretty boy and lead vocalist, Vladimir, who struggles with keeping his hysterical fangirls at bay; ill-tempered bassist, Simona, always seen in her giraffe hoodie, who hates everyone (including you); and Broccoli Girl, the drummer, who just can’t get over her ex. Don’t like the music club? That’s alright, you’ll be able to jump into the Arts, Sports or Drama clubs the next time you run a time loop.
While saving the world is an important part of Kraken Academy!!, there's a whole range of other activities to dive into. Learn teachers’ and students’ routines as you explore every corner of the campus during the game’s three-day loop. Attend a costume party, become a detective, and help the school's janitor bring down a crime syndicate. Don’t like where things are going? Just zip back in time to relive the last 72 hours and change the world’s fate!
Kraken Academy!! has already received numerous accolades, including Tiny Teams selections in 2020 and 2021, a Tokyo Games Show selection in 2020, and a nominee at Amaze 2020.
Kraken Academy!! is available in English, French, German, Simplified Chinese, Russian and Japanese languages.
