Need A Party Surprise? Acron: Attack of the Squirrels Has Got You Covered!

I always knew they were out to get us…

Sweden-based company Resolution Games has released its latest virtual reality game titled Acron: Attack of the Squirrels! Numerous review sources are coming in with glowing critiques for the new adventure; particularly noting that it’s the next best party game. Find it today on Steam, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Quest and Windows Mixed Reality for just $19.99.

In Acron: Attack of the Squirrels, one player puts on the VR headset and takes on the role of a big tree; while two to eight other players enter the game via a free smartphone app you can find on Android and iOS. They, of course, take on the role of the conquering squirrels. The squirrels are hungry and want to steal the tree’s golden acorns, and the player wearing the VR headset is forced to protect them from their fury and ferocious friends. Dodge, throw projectiles, and do whatever it takes to protect what you grew!

Acron: Attack of the Squirrels, like every tactical game, uses a variety of special items to intensify its game-play. Exploding seeds, tree sap to slow your enemies, and the ability to pick up squirrels and hurl them through the air means a simple, forestry landscape becomes a war zone! Also, squirrels can play as different squirrel breeds, which come equipped with their own special advantages like fast-running, burrowing tunnels and even generating shields. Use your natural environment and whatever the game comes up with to customize this battle to your level and liking.

Watch the trailer for Acron: Attack of the Squirrels below and highly consider whipping this game out at your End of Summer parties.
