Adjective Animal Inc.

Adjective Animal was founded in late 2019 in Tampere, Finland by game designer Pyry Takkunen and his university classmate Antti J. Heikkinen. By making console and PC games that stick, Adjective Animal aims to bring the AA back into gaming. The company focuses on making living room couches a better place to be with local multiplayer experiences that are fun to start playing and even more fun to get good at. The company’s first announced project, Puck Buddies, is an embodiment of this philosophy: a bouncy party sports game that simplifies the best aspects of hockey and minigolf into an easily approachable teamplay experience!

Coming from varying indie game development backgrounds, the Adjective Animal team has over a decade of combined game industry experience. We believe in a multiplatform future where local and remote gaming experiences bring people together regardless of location or device used.

Ready to conquer that couch? Puck Buddies is a hockey-themed local multiplayer game that combines the best elements of hockey, minigolf and analog sticks into ricocheting party action. Outwit (or bodycheck) your opponents, pass the puck around with your teammate(s) and make beautiful trick shots off the walls in differently shaped arenas designed to serve your innate trigonometric desires! …Or just bump into everything, if that’s your jam.

Puck Buddies is controlled using only the primary analog stick and the face buttons of a gamepad, allowing for approachable, instantly fun gameplay that raises volume levels in otherwise peaceful neighborhoods to new heights. Beneath the game’s hospitable surface lies a sky-high skill ceiling that will enable you to ruin family get-togethers for years to come! Puck Buddies also includes AI functionalities for solo & odd-numbered gameplay sessions.
