New details have emerged about Charlie Murder, the upcoming music-themed RPG/beat-em-up from Ska Studios. The game has been in development for quite some time, but new details leak out on a regular basis, so we're still pretty psyched about it. Charlie Murder will rely heavily on gaining levels, boosting stats with ability points, and finding/using various pieces of equipment, which includes things like badass Viking helmets, t-shirts, gloves and relics.
Still hard at work on their punk rock-inspired brawler/RPG Charlie Murder, Ska Studios recently released a trailer teasing some more information about the upcoming co-op XBLA game. Introduced and narrated by a dishwasher and a unicorn, the trailer shares some behind the scenes info on the game's development, including new tidbits about customizable clothing and character upgrades via tattoos. Quite a bit of gameplay footage is also shown.
Ska Studios has slowly been releasing pieces of concept art and screenshots for its upcoming Xbox Live Arcade beat-em-up RPG (brawl-PG, if you will) Charlie Murder. The most recent piece shows Lester Deth's transition from shirtless punk with pale skin to a shirt-wearing punk with darker skin. Actually, several of the characters seem to have started out shirtless, including the band's manager and hypnotist, Kelly Skitten. Don't worry, though. Resident massive human, The Rexecutioner, is still brawling and drumming topless.
Details are still scarce about Ska Studios' upcoming Xbox Live Arcade exclusive, Charlie Murder. We know it's a four player beat-em-up with RPG elements, which creator James Silva has coined as a brawl-PG. I'm fond of RPG-eat-em-up, myself. Anyway, the game revolves around the members of a band called Charlie Murder setting out to stop the evil band Gore Quaffer and its monstrous minions from doing bad things. That's still a bit vague, but three new screenshots (plus a brief video from PAX East) give us a better idea of what to expect.
Ska Studios has given us some fantastic co-op games, including the XBLA titles The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai, The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile, and XBLIG I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES 1NIT!!!1. The small studio (we're talking two people) is hard at work on their latest bloody adventure, Charlie Murder. We don't know much about the game other than that it supports four player drop-in co-op. The previous Dishwasher titles had both local and online co-op, so our fingers are crossed for combo co-op. We do have a kick-ass video to show you. Enjoy.
During our preview of Charlie Murder from PAX East, we were told the current Xbox Live Indie title may be coming to other platforms. At first, I thought this meant Ska Studios may be branching out to the PC or possibly the PlayStation 3, but, what actually was happening was some behind the scenes negotiations with Microsoft.
Indie developer James Silva has captured our co-op hearts in a most gory and interesting way. Previously recognized for the dark 2 player co-op Dishwasher: Dead Samurai XBLA title and the quirky local co-op I MAED A GAME W1TH Z0MB1ES 1N 1T!!!1 indie title, James seems to be taking his previous ideas and blending them for a new co-op indie game called Charlie Murder. Charlie Murder will be showing its game face in March, originally believed to be a sequel to Dishwasher. We don't have a price point just yet, but when we do you'll be the first to know.
