We’ve been keeping an eye out for Hamsterdam for quite a while now. It doesn’t feel like it, but it was already almost 2 years since this fun cutesy action game was revealed by Muse Games, the same developer of the multiplayer shooter Guns of Icarus on PC.

In this game, you’ll control a hamster named Pimm, whose grandfather (that happens to be a Kung Fu Master) has been kidnapped by a gang of rodents. Now, it’s up to our cute little friend to fight off these nasty enemies through tons of awesome gesture-based attacks and quicktime events. Everything sounds like it would make for a perfect fit for the touchscreen.

Roughly a year after the initial announcement, Muse Games launched a Kickstarter campaign for Hamsterdam and revealed that it wanted to bring the game to other platforms besides just mobile. The Kickstarter was a huge success, leading to a gameplay trailer being released about a month later. Through this, we caught a glimpse at the sheer variety of gameplay types that Hamsterdam promised to deliver. If you’ve missed that trailer, here is it again:

And then, as we reported last month, Hamsterdam was released for Early Access on Google Play, allowing Android users to have a taste at the actual game. Alongside that, a beta was also opened for iOS devices at the same time. It looked like the game was nearing its finish line.

So finally, we’ve come to the exciting news: Muse Games has officially announced that Hamsterdam will be arriving on Android and iOS, as well as PC and Nintendo Switch, on the first day of August. That’s just about a month and a half away! With the game spending such a long time in development, I’m eager to see what it has to offer. If you are interested as well, do stay tuned for more updates!

In the meantime, check out this other cinematic trailer below for a closer look at the story and characters:
