We love to find unique and quirky games here at oprainfall. So when I heard that the team behind Nihilumbra and Megamagic, Beautifun Games, was working on a new title, I was intrigued. I rather enjoyed my time with Nihilumbra, and am more than willing to see what the talented team could cook up next. Turns out, that new game is none other than Professor Lupo and His Horrible Pets. Slated for release in 2018, it’s a distinct change of genre from Nihilumbra, and instead of being a puzzle platformer, it’s more of a top down puzzle-adventure game.

In Professor Lupo, you play a lowly intern on a massive spacestation who is the last line of defense between Earth and a horde of monstrously cute aliens. You must puzzle your way to victory and find a way to escape from the ruthless beasts, otherwise you’ll be nothing more than lunch.

BARCELONA, November 7th, 2017 – Become the most epic intern of all times and save humanity from collapse, or at least your own neck, in this frantic upcoming puzzle-adventure game infested with aliens!

Professor Lupo and his Horrible Pets is a puzzle-adventure game made by the creators of Nihilumbra (App Store Best of 2012). Professor Lupo is a scientist who has traveled to every galaxy to collect the most horrible aliens, and has returned to the Earth in order to sell them to the highest bidder. While the alien showcase is going on, an attack occurs, and all the aliens escape and spread inside the Aurora Space Station.

Your job as an intern of the spaceship has been always to study and take care of these creepy and also lethal critters. Anyway, this time you will have to add a new task to your todo list: find a way to escape, or become your pets’ dinner.
