Camped Out! brings co-op camping craziness from a Melbourne studio

Posted on September 28, 2022

Melbourne indie developer INCA Studios has released their new game, Camped Out!

The release follows an inspirational beginning with developers Andrew and Ian meeting industry legend Ron Gilbert at a Double Fine meet-up during PAX Australia in 2013. The game gained some attention during PAX Australia 2018 & 2019 as they showcased the work-in-progress in PAX Rising. Going by the name Scout’s Honor back then, we got a chance to check it out all those years prior, saying it has a “cute aesthetic, intuitive gameplay and co-op fun and mayhem”.

The game is inspired by couch co-op games like Overcooked where you need to help set up a campsite before darkness falls. There are various tasks to be performed like pitching tents, building a fire and cooking food. The added time restriction and looming darkness helps bring a sense of urgency and chaos to the table. Camped Out! is released on Steam and Switch and takes full advantage of Steam’s Remote Play Together functionality. There is also a demo available if you want to give it a try.

After so many years in development, it is awesome to see how far INCA Studios has come. With 20 campsites to set up, a diverse range of characters and exciting gameplay, it is worth checking out this Aussie gem on Steam or Switch.
