Tate Multimedia has announced that it will release a demo Of Kao the Kangaroo on the occasion of the Steam Next FestPC event starting on February 21 and ending on February 28, 2022.
The game is a reboot of the franchise, of which a gameplay trailer was recently shown, in development for PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series S and X.
The demo will include one level, the Dark Forest, for approximately 40 minutes of gameplay. In this way we will be able to verify firsthand whether it was worth waiting for Kao to return to our screens or not.
Let’s read the official description of the game:
Kao the Kangaroo is a 3D platformer created by Tate Multimedia, a veteran studio of this genre, whose protagonist is the fearless, sometimes cheeky, but always nice kangaroo Kao (as the title suggests!) Who launches himself on a mission to search for the truth about his father’s disappearance.
During his journey Kao will have the opportunity to explore a variety of finely detailed settings and landscapes, each with secrets to be discovered. Kao will encounter new challenges at every turn, having to draw on her skills and learn new ones … Although not all of them originate in the world she lives in! As it is often said: it is not the destination that matters, but the journey.
Drawing inspiration from the 3D platformers of the golden age, to coincide with Kao’s 21st anniversary, Kao the Kangaroo will not fail to give emotions by dint of jumps, crashes, puzzles and collectibles. A new and engaging adventure that retains all the charm not only of the genre, but also of Kao himself!
Kao’s colorful and joyful world is teeming with lively characters just waiting to be met and, in some cases, defeated (it costs nothing to try). From wise mentors and quirky inventors, to the usual bullies, Kao the Kangaroo’s characters are as memorable as they are expansive!
It goes without saying that Kao’s arduous journey will lead him to face many hostile characters: agile and quick enemies, awkward and slow beasts and so on and so forth. Kao will have to draw on all the teachings he has received to be able to defeat those who will hinder his path.
The mysterious and hypnotic gloves Kao found, long hidden, exude a power not fully unleashed. They will accompany the protagonist all the time, helping him to overcome enemies and cross both worlds. Will the secret of their enormous power be revealed? It is Kao’s intention to do so.
Explore a wide variety of interactive worlds, all distinct and enchanting, teeming with challenges, enemies, puzzles and secrets! Jump, climb, jump, and glide through highly detailed environments as you help Kao complete his journey!
