Following the success of Crashlands [$6.99] is going to be difficult for Butterscotch Shenanigans, but if we know anything about the Coster brothers, it's that they're really good at overcoming massive challenges. After their previous title did so well, BScotch has staffed up significantly and today they're announcing the name of their next game: Scuffle Buddies. What you actually do in Scuffle Buddies is still a total mystery. I even recently went out to dinner with the developers and they wouldn't tell me anything- Even after a few drinks. All we have to go off of is the game's logo:

So, it's time to do some good old fashioned speculating. I feel like it's inevitable that the game will have the same sense of humor and silly aesthetic as other Butterscotch Shenanigans titles. Also, it seems safe to assume the game is going to have a reasonably large scope, as it'd be weird to follow up a hit like Crashlands with a game like Flop Rocket [Free]. (Not that another Flop Rocket would be bad, but remember, they have Steam gamers in their fan base now.) The only real clue I have beyond any of this isn't really even a clue at all: I've been badgering the BScotch bros to include my dog in the game which they seem at least vaguely open to. But, really, a wiener dog would fit into practically any genre I can think of.

Look at the Scuffle Buddies title art, check out their other games, close your eyes, and think about it. What kind of game comes to mind? Let us know in the comments, and, if you're super interested in following along with Scuffle Buddies directly, head over to their web site to sign up for the newsletter. Much like Crashlands, Scuffle Buddies is going to be a multi-platform game, so it's worth signing up even if you're more into PC games than mobile games. (Although I have a feeling that much like Crashlands, Scuffle Buddies will be good on whatever platform you play on.

    Some sort of sports game I guess. The pattern on the B looks like a robot or a man in armour so maybe some kind of sci-fi american football style thing? The name suggests casual.

    I'm excited to find out what it is. But I see a ball and robot. So maybe Eli's dog will save humanity from evil robots by throwing balls at them. Super-sonic-scuffle balls. And I wouldn't put it past BS to have plenty of balls.

    And if they need a VA for your dog, I'd be happy to lend my voice acting talents and experience. 😉

    Doesn't matter what it is. I'm in. Bring it on BS!

    Does anyone else have a Pokémon feeling from this? The theme, the art, that poke-looking-ball, the buddies part... I don't know, I'm sure whatever it is, it'll be good.

    Sounds like a lot of BS.
