Those of us in the UK are already familiar with Milky Tea even though you probably don’t realise it. Remember those Lloyds TSB adverts where all the characters seem to have massive honkers? Yeah, that’s Milky Tea! And for the first time ever, they’re making their own IP which features a motorised mobility scooter race against death in Coffin Dodgers, but before this awesome looking game can become a reality, they need your help!
Looking to raise £65,000, Milky Tea are hoping you can help make Coffin Dodgers a reality. Set in the usually tranquil retirement village of Sunny Pines, the residents have found themselves spitting their false teeth out over a new resident, the Grim Reaper. The residents must literally race against death to save their souls in an all out motorised battle royale against Grim and his army of the Undead.
In Coffin Dodgers players take on the role of one of seven quirky retirement village residents, each racing on their very own customisable modified mobility scooters, armed with a variety of homemade weapons and gadgets such as cod liver oil tablets to talc grenade, to take on anything the Grim Reaper and his army of zombies may throw at them. If things go to plan, Coffin Dodgers will be coming your way soon on PC, Mac, Linux, VITA, iOS & Android.
The Kickstarter Campaign which launched today offers various different levels of pledging from being a Credited Supporter to t-shirts and art books, to even having your own nan or grandad turned into one of the games playable characters!
Now, don’t let me babble on, check out the two minute trailer above for a glimpse at the game in action, as well as some of the games screenshot’s below. If you fancy throwing over a tenner, head to their Kickstarter page here.
