Nour: Play With Your Food will launch for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on September 12 for $14.99, publisher Panic and developer Terrifying Jellyfish announced. It will be available at a 20 percent-off launch discount. The PlayStation 4 version is newly announced.
“Nour is unconventional and wild, and it was a delight to make,” said creator TJ Hughes in a PlayStation Blog post. “We set out to make a game with no goals or objectives, other than experiencing the joy of freely interacting with highly-detailed representations of the delicious food and snacks we enjoy every day. Now we’re done, and we hope you give Nour a taste when it releases on September 12.”
Panic head of publishing Nick Suttner added, “We’d seen Nour on the games event circuit a few years back, and became pretty enamored with the incredible style and deeply hilarious chaos of it. We’re always looking for projects that feel unique and can reach a new audience, so we reached out to Tj to ask if we could help in any way. Fast-forward a few years and we’re finally ready to serve it up together!”
