PHOGS! delayed to later in 2020

No longer due out in June.

PHOGS!

Publisher Coatsink and developer Bit Loom Games have delayed PHOGS! from its previously planned June release window to later in 2020 due to challenges created by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam when it launches.

PHOGS! will also take part in the Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition starting June 9 at 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET, through which the PAX East 2020 demo of the game will be playable publicly for the first time. (Update: Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition has since been delayed to June 16 to 22.)

Here is an overview of the game, via Coatsink:
