Paris – Independent developer Le Cartel and Francophile game label Devolver Digital have announced Heave Ho, a physics-based local multiplayer adventure across an impossibly wide ravine. Heave Ho is playable at PAX East this weekend on a 20-foot 4K screen and likely at every other event of note on its way to a Summer 2019 launch on Nintendo Switch and Steam.
It’s a hoot but this trailer explains it better for sure:
Heave Ho tasks up to four players with a simple goal – don’t fall to your death! Players will use their own two hands and the outstretched grip of their friends to grapple across each level on their way to victory. Grab one another’s hands, climb across dangling bodies, and swing your pals to safety in a wobbly, dangly mass of limbs. Customize your character with all manner of stylish accessories and zany accouterment in a vain attempt to remember who you are and which of your hands is the only thing between you and the plummet of doom.
