We’re in the middle of trailer season, with showcases and presentations aplenty! And in yesterday’s Guerrilla Collective showcase, we spotted something that might be one to hide from your kids.

Hell Pie is a brand new 3D platformer from developer Sluggerfly who was behind the “grotesque” Ben and Ed on PC. It’s coming to Switch on 21st July and publisher Headup has shared a brand new trailer to celebrate the announcement.

Full to the brim with obscenities and disgusting imagery, Hell Pie is a platformer with a difference. It uses crudeness and silliness to stand out from the crowd in shocking ways while being inspired by old-school 3D platformers.

Why don’t we find out what the game is all about, courtesy of the game’s press release:

In Hell Pie, you grab the horns of Nate, the ‘Demon of Bad Taste’. Your task is to gather the disgusting ingredients for Satan’s infamous birthday pie. Venture out into the overworld and do whatever it takes to ensure those ingredients are secured in time, or there’ll be hell to pay!

Luckily Nate isn’t alone on this quest, with his ‘pet’ angel Nugget ready and able to offer support. Nugget offers his holy insight when needed but, more importantly, is chained to Nate, so he can be used as a grappling hook or swung around as a weapon. Nate can also equip horns he finds across the world to give him new hellish abilities, from charging through enemies and boulders, to gliding through the air.

Together, Nate and Nugget will explore wild environments, meet tons of unsavoury enemies and characters, and witness some truly shocking sights in the seriously twisted take on the classic mascot platformer.

“Hell Pie is a game that we’ve had a lot of fun making and we can’t wait to share all the obscenity and silliness with the world at large when it comes to PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC on July 21st,” said Christian Patorra, Sluggerfly’s CEO. “We’re sure anyone who shares our love of classic 3D platforming is going to like what we are cooking up!”

Honestly, the little demon is kind of cute? But it’s clear that Nate is out to cause mayhem just in the name of making pie. Well, we would too — pie is delicious — but there’s a limit, and Nate isn’t aware of that.

Check out the new trailer ‘SFW’ trailer below, but be warned as you can still make out a lot of the game’s gross and crude moments.
