Killer Queen Black, the strategic eight-player arcade action platformer from Liquid Bit and BumbleBear Games, will fly First on Discord for the PC release in Q3 2019, and simultaneously release on Nintendo Switch.

For the first 90 days after launch, PC gamers can download Killer Queen Black exclusively from the Discord store. With day-one cross-platform play and chat, friends can bumble-brawl together no matter what they are playing on.

The Glam Rock-inspired 16-bit art-style will require some rocking new tunes, so instrumental power metal cover band Powerglove will provide the theme and end-of-Level stingers.

Killer Queen Black

Battle for the hive in two teams of four — one Queen, and three Workers. Coordination and adaptability are the keys to dominating opponents. The Queen enters the fray armed with a stinger she can use to both attack the other team and defend herself, as she’s the only Bee with limited lives. Her heightened maneuverability and wings help her cross the battlefield quickly and tag power-up gates on the map, claiming them for her team.

But what’s a Queen without her loyal subjects? Workers excel in adaptability, making them essential for game-winning objectives. While initially defenseless, by grabbing a berry and taking it to the gates, Workers can boost their speed, become Soldiers, wielding maces, swords, shields, and laser rifles, or even do both and transform into deadly-quick aggressors. Choose whichever form helps the team pursue one of three different types of victories.

Economic Victories task Workers with collecting berries on the battlefield and bringing them back to their home base. Prefer a more aggressive style of play? Slay the opposing team’s Queen three times with either a Queen or a Soldier to earn a Military Victory. Finally, one snail waits in the middle of each map. Slowly ride it back to base and secure a Snail Victory. Win three times, and the game’s over. Ascend the ranks and there’s a chance to become the dreaded Black team.

Any given time there is one Black team playing in the world, clad in special, glowing outfits. Once dethroned by up-and-comers, the usurpers become the new Black team. These nail-biting competitions will be broadcasted at all times, making the ultimate team a coveted, constantly-shifting goal.

Killer Queen Black launching for PC on the Discord store is a perfect fit,” said Matt Tesch, co-founder of Liquid Bit. ”Discord’s focus on community and communication reflects the core tenets of our game, and we hope to see everyone on the battlefield later this year.”

Killer Queen Black will be available digitally Q3 2019 in English. There will also be a Switch physical edition.
