Mighty Bear Games has launched its food-fight themed multiplayer Butter Royale game on Apple Arcade. It’s kind of like a version of The Hunger Games that makes you hungry.
The Singapore-based Mighty Bear Games is putting a family-friendly spin on the popular battle royale genre for Apple’s subscription service, which now has 108 iOS games.
Set in the near future after a global ban on weapons, players engage in food fights on Butter Island. They use “Nutritionally Operated Machines” (NOMs) to launch food at one another during five-minute matches, while trying to escape floods of butter to get to safe zones.
You can play offline against AI bots or in the online mode with 32 players, either solo or in squads. You can also choose to play as one of any 52 characters, spanning diverse backgrounds, ages, and genders. The controls are designed to be simple and accessible so players new to games (and battle royale) will be able to pick it up quickly.
You can play it across iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac, and with Family Sharing, and up to six can play on a single Apple Arcade subscription.
It has no in-game chats, in-game advertisements, loot boxes, or in-app purchases. Mighty Bear Games was founded by three game veterans: Simon Davis, Benjamin Chevalier, and Fadzuli Said. The team has experience in games at places such as King, Ubisoft, Bigpoint, LucasArts, and Disney.
