Developers Pewter Games and LoPoly are currently hosting an online multiplayer playtest for their co-operative physics-based heist shooter Filthy Animals: Heist Simulator. The playtest is available on Steam and sign-ups are available now on the game’s page.
Filthy Animals: Heist Simulator appears to have combined the physics of a title like Gang Beasts and the heisting of something like Pay Day into a quirky package that includes mutant animals taking down a variety of scores. One to four players can take on increasingly challenging heists ranging from your basic convenience stores to more complex capers such as secret military bases. You’ll take on a plethora of enemies and environmental hazards along the way, and if you get clipped on a job have no fear – your fellow heisters just need to flush you down a toilet to revive you. It’s bonkers stuff and I am totally here for it.
Filthy Animals launches later this quarter (so by the end of March) on PC via Steam. I’ll be keeping my eye out for a console port from Pewter Games and LoPoly, who also shared a new playtest announcement trailer:
