Demo Released For Vamped Games’s Funk Unplugged on PC and Mac

Vamped GamesVamped Games, an independent studio made up of students at DePaul University, has released a demo on PC and Mac for their most recent project, Funk Unplugged. The developers describe Funk Unplugged as “a love letter to the golden age of N64 platforming games.” The game is described as having “bright, colorful worlds to discover, challenging platforming puzzles, a bumpin’ soundtrack, and oodles of collectibles (obviously).”

The main character, Ampy, is an amp that has been left behind by its former bandmates. Ampy has been brought to life by Feedbac, a quirky, ethereal being who investigates intergalactic sound transmissions. The antagonist, Evil Records, has established a presence on the planet and are trying to spread bad vibes with their newest, worst band yet: The G-Men. Feedbac fuses with Ampy, bringing the formerly-defunct amplifier back to life and bestowing strange, wonderful, alien powers to combat the nefarious influence of the G-Men and their garbage music.

The demo can be downloaded here, and a video featuring gameplay footage can be found below. Additionally, Vamped Games will be launching a Kickstarter next week.

The full game will feature 25 playable levels, six unique worlds, seven boss battles, collectibles and secrets, abilities and power-ups, and a full soundtrack.
