Daylight Studios announces Holy Potatoes! A Spy Story?! for PC and Mac

Holy Potatoes! A Spy Story?! - Announce 01

The spuds are back and they’re dressed to kill. Daylight Studios have announced Holy Potatoes! A Spy Story?! for PC (Windows/Mac/Linux), making this the fourth installment in the tater-filled series. This time the potato sims are heading to the intelligence world, allowing us to meet illustrious agents such as Jamal Bond, Zombra, and Ezio de Frenzy.

Local developers Daylight aren’t straying far from their Holy Potatoes formula. The simulation game will have you building and equipping a team of potato spies, all while swimming neck-deep in pop culture references. There’s a story behind it all, something about twins Ren and Rexa who are out to “discover the truth behind their parents’ disappearance” — but we all know most players are in it for the madcap cast of characters.

Apparently we’ll get to “outwit and outsmart security personnel, bust through the sturdiest of doors, and hack some of the most complicated security systems” in the line of duty. There’s also a new gene splicing feature to indulge in questionable potato ethics, alongside top-level planning for secret missions and heists.

Holy Potatoes! A Spy Story?! releases on 7 November for US$14.99 (approx. S$21).
