Based on the current look of the game, I really like what Formal Sheep has done with their monochromatic landscape. The sections that are black and white are clearly defined, yet they shift in way that looks more natural than "this is now this color." It looks like it allows for a better interplay between the two players as they try to help one another in the puzzle solving.

Action Rogue-like Ruin of the Reckless Reaches Kickstarter GoalJason Love

The reason for this campaign is to help finish the game's development and try to ensure they hit a (for now) planned release date of March 2017. With the minimum amount achieved, the developers now have their sites set on some of the stretch goals, including additional playable characters, new monsters and areas, and a chiptune soundtrack.

Set within the same universe as Red SolsticeSolstice Chronicles: MIA puts you in the shoes of a "corporate grunt" that must fight off hordes of mutants infected by the STROL virus in order to track down a cure. At your side is a drone that can you can use to stem the tide of enemies. The title is currently aiming to feature a "skill tree system with Diablo 2 style progression, featuring 4 classes" and local co-op for two players, each of whom will be able to customize their own grunt however they see fit.

We've embedded the trailer here in the post to watch, but keep in mind, it's limited in what it can display. Click through to YouTube and change the settings to 4k if you want to watch it in the higher resolution.

Lion Quest bends the definitions of 2D and 3D by incorporating objects that straddle planes of existence. The environments are visually three dimensional, meaning you'll see cubes fly up, cast shadows and all of that, but you'll only interact with them in a two dimensional environment. Use the power of your mind to control falling objects as you carve a path through each stage. You'll even get to stop blocks cold and pretend like you're in that one scene in The Matrix with the bullets.

The most interesting mechanic of Lost Castle is sacrificing your previously fallen heroes in order to upgrade your current one. It looks like it works in a similar fashion to how you earned gold in Rogue Legacy that could be spent by future generations.

The new figure will not only be able to use the same powers as her cousin, which includes laser beams, flight, and super strength, she'll also be able to tap into the powers of the Red Lantern ring. With the ring she'll be able to fire red bolts and lasers as well as use "Lantern Constructs." It's not clear what that means in-game, but I'm sure there will be some doors/switches/other devices that will require that ability in order to get some hidden item.

Set in a dystopian, dieselpunk world, Tower 57 tasks players with infiltrating the titular Megatower and discovering the secrets within. With seven characters from which to choose, destructible environments, and some gorgeous 16-bit graphics, the game looks like it could be a fairly promising twin-stick shooter to enjoy with a buddy, either locally or online.

Klei's follow-up to the original title was a little disappointing as the co-op campaign feature from the first was removed in favor of a co-op survival mode. That said, the game has a lot of style and is worth a play through again if you already own it.

Between its history, artstyle, and title, Brut@l is a unique game. With these features, it’s certainly a head-turner, but initial impressions can only get a game so far. As a rogue-like (in a time where gamers are flooded with rogue-likes), it needs to impress mechanically. It has to be addicting, egging the player to play one more level, or ...

The play is the thing in this co-op platformer. Three monsters are in the mood for a little entertainment and its up to you and your friends to do your best to not only entertain, but bring down the would-be directors as well. The action all unfolds on cylindrical platforms that rotate as you play, thereby changing not only the scenery, but the dangers you'll face as well.
