Kyiv-based studio CyberLight Game Studio, which is working on hunting action/horror BIGFOOT presented a new game map – Yellowstone Park. This is the first major update for the game since the beginning of the hot phase of the Russian-Ukrainian war.
For the first time since the beginning of the great war, the CyberLight Game Studio team addressed the players on February 28, 2022, warning that they were evacuating from Kyiv and the development of the game was frozen indefinitely. But already on May 1, 2022, team representatives wrote that they evacuated to Bulgaria and plan to continue working on the game. In addition, the developers urged players to donate funds to help Ukraine and showed screenshots of the new map. And finally, the trailer presenting the new content was released.
BIGFOOT is a single-player, co-op and competitive action/horror game where a player or players try to hunt a snowman while the snowman hunts them. The snowman can be controlled by both AI and another player. BIGFOOT was released on Steam back in 2017 and since then is in Early Access.
But it seems that the game has quite good sales, which allow the authors to develop the project. Judging by the number of reviews (by the way, very good, Steam rating – 81% for all the time and 90% for the last 30 days), we are talking about sales in the range of 350-450 thousand copies. What’s more, even in the Early Access to the game, 8 DLCs with “skins” for weapons and a snowman have already been released. Although the game online is not very impressive right now – 100-250 players online with a peak of 1,460 players in the fall of 2021, when the big update with the new Winter Park map came out.
Judging by the description on Steam, the release of the final version of BIGFOOT was planned for the end of 2021. It is currently unknown what the new release date will be.
