by on October 24, 2023

Developer Angry Demon Studio and Publisher Wired Productions have released a new origins trailer for Gori: Cuddly Carnage, in which the question is answered: “why is a cat on a hoverboard, killing unicorns?”

The hack and slash games Gori: Cuddly Carnage is due in early 2024, and the trailer aims to shed some light on what’s going on in the title. The video is told through the mouth of a “synthetic hoverboard” which is Gori’s best friend (FRANK, stylised as F.R.A.N.K!), and shows off the lineup up characters trying to save the galaxy, while also giving some back story.

Check out the trailer below, as well as a plethora of information from the latest press release.


Humanity has been destroyed – and it’s up to Gori, along with his deadly but wise-cracking sentient hoverboard, F.R.A.N.K, and morose A.I companion, CH1-P, to slay the evil Adorable Army with lethal combos.

Fuelled by insatiable demand, ‘Cool-Toys Inc.’ created ‘Ultra Pets’. The ultimate companions that never hunger, never require bathroom breaks and are impervious to the ravages of time.
