The Superweaks recorded six new songs. Team Lazerbeam made six new games. They tied everything together into a colourful punk rock journey towards the best night of your life where every game is synchronized with a song to create an unprecedented gaming/music experience. Expect a tale of bands, butts and bootleg battletoads.

 

Teenage Blob is about an amorphous teen about to see their favourite band! There’s just one problem: before the gig they want to buy some new boots, and before they can do that they’re gonna need to work their butt off! Players will help the Teenage Blob pick the perfect outfit, make some money at their part time jobs, spread positivity while skateboarding in a frogsuit and more. Check the track list below for more on each song/game.

 

Features list

 
  • A unique music/ game hybrid!

  • 6 radical Superweaks songs & 6 genre-busting Team Lazerbeam games!

  • Combines elements of dating sims, RPGs, rhythm games & arcade classics! 

  • Hand-crafted with love and teenage punk rock dreams

 

Hold Up, What’s a Split?

The split album is a long running DIY indie/punk tradition, it’s a collaborative release featuring songs by two or more bands. Typically each band takes a side of the record/tape, although some splits have seen bands alternating between tracks, remixing/ covering each other’s songs, or even joining forces to record new ones.

 

About Team Lazerbeam

After working on alternative short punk games like Wrestling With Emotions, Snow Cones and Dress to Express Dancing Success for years, the game band is now working on it’s first major release Teenage Blob - a colourful art-punk adventure towards the best night of your life in a unique split release. Coming to Steam in 2020!

 

About The Superweaks

Led by the songwriting powerhouse duo Evan Bernard and Chris Baglivo, The Superweaks evolved from a Philadelphia music collective to a full time band for their first collective EP The World Is A Terrible Place And I Hate Myself And Want To Die. Since then, the band has formed a place in the hearts of the Philadelphia scene through their impressive knack for writing hooks that chew bubble gum and kick ass with influences ranging from Weezer to Thin Lizzy to The Ergs.
