Conan Chop Chop is an action-adventure roguelike in development by Mighty Kingdom and to be published by Funcom. It is set to release Q2 2020.

Originally, it was planned for September 3, 2019, but on August 26, 2019 it was announced that the release was moved to Q1 2020 as Mighty Kingdom would add online multi-player.[1] On December 18, 2019 the release date was announced for February 25, 2020 with a new trailer.[2] On February 12, the developers were given additional time to ensure that the game is optimized for online multiplayer, and to give them a chance to polish the game.[3]

Description[edit | edit source]

Short description[edit | edit source]

Venture forth into the world of Conan the Barbarian, traverse among a cast of strange and wondrous creatures… and crush 'em all to bits in this epic hack 'n' slash rogue-lite for 1-4 players.

Long description[edit | edit source]

The treacherous wizard Thoth-Amon has devised a plan to resurrect the ancient evil that is Xaltotun. If he succeeds, he will condemn the world to an eternity of darkness and enslavement. Only you can stop him, but in order to do so you must use all your cunning. All your guile. You must summon all your courage and swordsmanship. You must … Chop Chop!

Conan Chop Chop is the most epic and realistic stick figure game ever to be set in the world of Conan the Barbarian, thus there will be an excessive amount of gore and flying limbs. Be warned that this may in turn lead to uncontrollable outbursts of joy and/or profanities, usually depending on which end of the sword you are on.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Shannon Cross and Harrison Gibbins created a student game called Dungeon Chop Chop. Shannon brought it to Mighty Kingdom to see if we could be a part of taking it further and helping him grow it into a commercial one with it already getting some traction on the indie scene. And so we took it to a convention last year in Europe and connected with Funcom to demo for them. They liked the look and feel of the original Chop Chop and then had the idea of taking Conan in that fun, chibi, cartoon direction.

Funnily enough, it started as a student project. We were lucky enough to show that demo off at the Paris Games Show and it caught the eye of Funcom. Back in those days it was a little 3D two-player game The genesis for it…was inspired by The Legend of Zelda and The Binding of Issac, banging all of these things together to come up with this sort of art style and this gameplay style.

The bones of it are still very similar to what Dungeon Chop Chop was, but bringing the Conan IP in allows us to deepen that lore, there is a whole lot of stuff you can draw added a lot of more depth.

In light of us not taking ourselves too seriously, the decision was made to present it as a bit of an April Fools' joke.

Reception[edit | edit source]

99% of the fan response has been super positive. You get the odd sad-sack, but people generally love it. When Funcom marketing said to us "we're going to announce your game as an April Fools joke," we were like, "OK" with the eyes emoji. But it turned out to be a stroke of genius. On April 1st the response was pretty crazy with people talking about how it was a joke, but they'd love to play it. Then when we announced that it was real at E3 the response was overwhelmingly positive. So good! Being at E3 to demo such a joyous game is one of the best experiences I've had in 20 years in the industry.
