Acorn Assault: Rodent Revolution is available now!
Official Xbox One Trailer
Release date: Holiday 2015

Acorn Assault is a game about the french revolution as told by squirrels adorned in powdered wigs. It is a 3D turn-based strategy game which is easy to learn but hard to master. Live your dream of being a fancy french revolutionary squirrel!

The original Acorn Assault game was created in a game jam for the OUYA console. The game released on OUYA with only the core mechanic which was a hit with the players but they wanted more from the game. The fans wanted to know about the story of these squirrels and why they were fighting each other. Since then, High Tale Studios has expanded the game to have a full story mode with bosses, improvements to the gameplay and cranked up the graphics quality. The full version of the game is nearing completion and will launch on Xbox One, PC, Mac and Linux later this year.

  • Simple to learn but hard to master gameplay.
  • A story mode that will have you battling five squirrel bosses each with unique abilities.
  • A dynamic soundtrack composed specifically for this squirrel-battling game.
  • Nail-bitingly fun local or online multiplayer.
  • Play as 6 unique characters each with their own special ability.
  • The game has squirrels in freakin' powdered wigs!


Our hero, Charles DeMontesquirrel, lives in the deep depths of the French forest trying to stretch his hard-earned acorns as far as he can while King Louis the Umpteenth has other plans for Charles' nuts. You see, King Louis has been taxing the squirrel folk more and more lately.

Late one afternoon the King sent his best tax collector to confront Charles about his lack of paying the king his absurd taxes. The tax man arrived with his well-written legal document of the laws of "Le Tax". The document was so perfectly crafted, not even the most cunning rodent attorney could find any loop holes in. With a confident knock on the door he waited for Charles to answer the door and shell out his acorns.

Charles burst through the door in an angry fit knowing exactly what the disturbance was about. He grabbed the tax man's meticulously crafted document and tore it in two! All the tax man's countless hours crafting the legal page was all for nothing. Charles shouted in the deepest squirrel voice he could muster and told him where the tax man could shove the document. No longer would he stand for the injustice. It was time Charles led the common folk to a revolution!

When I saw the squirrels I thought of my dog, who looks like a squirrel. Then I thought, what could be better than my dog with a powdered wig fighting for freedom? Vote from me!
