Bish Bash Bots Coming To PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Switch On October 19th

Release date and new demo revealed in trailer that showcases co-op party mayhem


Edinburgh, Scotland - September 1st, 2023 - The release date and a new demo for Firestoke and Catastrophic_Overload’s co-op party extravaganza, Bish Bash Bots, was revealed yesterday with a new release date trailer that debuted at The MIX showcase. Bish Bash Bots will be pushing and shoving its way to PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Switch on October 19th, bringing the mayhem and madness of Overcooked, arcade brawling and strategic tower defense, all lovingly crafted for couch co-op fans. Try it out now with the new Steam demo available now!

Perfect for playing with friends locally or online, with 1 - 4 players supported, Bish Bash Bots is a co-op party game that merges the strategic planning of tower defense with the immediacy of fun and frantic brawling that sees you and your buddies smashing rogue robots across the battlefield. Build upgradable turrets, unlock gadgets and bash bots with giant hammers. An array of turrets and gadgets will allow you to mix up your strategy as you come face to face with unique robots that can be pushed, shoved and even bashed down holes!

In a cartoony take on a future where machines have stolen technology from humans and are turning it against them, a team of unlikely heroes set out on a grand adventure to reset the rogue robots and save the world. With 8 vibrant and colourful biomes across 32 levels, players will have to contend with a variety of hazards such as turrets overheating in the Volcano biome, or the dangerous flora of the overgrown Jungle where mutant plants may snatch you and your friends up!

“If you are a fan of co-op multiplayer or want to experience how we blend action and tower defence firsthand, come check out the Bish Bash Bots demo on Steam,” said James Letherby, co-founder of Catastrophic_Overload. “We are also excited to announce that the full release will be coming September 28th to PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Switch."
