My Friend Pedro

My Friend Pedro is bananas B-A-N-A-N-A-S

My Friend Pedro welcomes you to the hype train with its side-scrolly, flippy shooty fun in the latest trailer for a game about a man driven to mass murder by a sentient banana. I assume he’s killing bad guys, or whatever, who even cares, because HOW FUN DOES THIS LOOK?

Dead Toast’s My Friend Pedro is a 2D, side-scrolling action adventure game that lets you perform a beautiful ballet of bedlam at the behest of a banana. Yes. It’s also got at least one motorcycle chase and a couple of potentially fatal physics puzzles. Also, there’s an automatic GIF generator for sharing all your awesome with the world. Can’t really argue with that soundtrack, either.

And who amongst us, with all our millennial burnout and climate change anxiety, wouldn’t be driven to such extremes by a sentient banana? Maybe he’s got some good ideas, you don’t know.

My Friend Pedro will be available from 20 June for PC and Nintendo Switch.

Choo choo.
