Hamster Playground with an update and game Demo due to release on Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to the creativity and effort of developer We Dig Games. Which is now available to test abd play on Steam.

We Dig Games are back in your inbox with an update about Hamster Maze. Or to be precise Hamster Playground.

The developer has changed the title of their game! “Why?”, you may ask. Well, they did it because they made the game even more appealing and attractive to the players. So, they need a title to reflect that. Hamster Maze was, in essence, a game about racing in the labyrinths. Since the gameplay expands to a more broad scope by adding more arena’s and activities. Five gameplay modes are going to be available upon launch. So Hamster Maze has been transformed into something much bigger, Hamster Playground. Changing into a whole Playground.

The hamster house is still in the game. So it’s still a core gameplay component that enables you to customise and train your hamsters. Getting them ready to be pitted against their opponents.

The developer decided to reveal the rebranding now. While using Steam Next Fest as an opportunity to let you take a peek behind the curtain. The Hamster Playground Demo is available right now. This is a Windows PC build but works well on Linux via Proton. Which looks quite good for a Unity 3D Demo. Give it a go, check out how the mazes work and have a taste of a brand new mode, drag racing on skateboards. Obviously, hamster house is in the demo as well. Have a look around, customise its looks. While you’re at it, make sure to check out the dressing room and make your hamsters truly yours!

Unfortunately, there is a bit of bad news with this update. Adding new modes means that the Hamster Playground launch has a delay. As of this moment there is no exact release date. But We Dig Games is planning to make the game available in the third quarter of 2022. Still offering all the goodies. Such Single-player, Online PvP, Shared/Split Screen PvP, Steam Achievements, and Full controller support.

In essence:

  • The launch has been moved from Q1 to Q3 2022;
  • 5 game modes to enjoy at launch;
  • Compete against AI-driven hamsters as well as other players – both locally and online;
  • Customise your hamsters – over 100 cosmetic items available upon launch;

Hamster Playground is going to release on Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. But you can try the Demo available now on Steam. It plays well via Proton. It’s actually worth a look, since it is free to try.
