Publisher Gravity Game Arise and Italian indie developer duo Kid Onion Studio have announced the early access release date of their upcoming title River Tails: Stronger Together. River Tails: Stronger Together is an upcoming 3D co-op adventure game that tells the story of two unlikely friends, a cat called Furple and a fish called Finn. Journeying through beautiful natural-world environments, Furple and Finn will learn to work together in order to keep the things they love with them.
Slated for release in Early Access, River Tails: Stronger Together will feature two game worlds at launch and each of these game worlds will feature three levels and a final boss level. Apart from these two game worlds, players will also be able to discover the Beaver Resort. Additionally, the developer also states that bonus levels and several CG cutscenes may also be available in the early access version at launch however they are not confirmed at this point. The first world is the River Forest while the second world is the Temple of the Frogs. Progress in these levels and you will take a raft ride to the Beaver Resort where you can complete some challenges.
While River Tails: Stronger Together is being developed as a co-op game in mind since there are two main characters in the story, the game features a Lone Wolf mode as well where you will be able to play the game solo as well. The co-op is only possible offline because as of now, there is no online plans for the game and the developers will be focusing on the local co-op for the game only. Depending on fan feedback, the developers can consider adding an online mode in the future however as of now, there is no plan of adding it to the game.
