The week following Easter can be rife with indulgence. After giving up something dear to them for the 40 days of Lent, god-fearing people can feel free to get back into bad habits with a gusto. I myself gave up going to church for Lent about 17 years ago. It made me feel so righteous, I haven't been back since. If Easter isn't your thing, that's fine too. These new games are nondenominational.
Housemarque's next co-op title after Dead Nation is called Outland. The two player co-op action platformer sports a unique art style set in a mythical world. The game puts players in control of of a man who is trying to bridge the world between its ancient past and possible destruction.
When Ubisoft announced Outland last September, the lack of co-op kept it off our radar. At PAX East, game producer Adam Sarasohn revealed that there would be two player online support. Outland just blipped. Housemarque, the developers of the excellent Dead Nation, are bringing the game to the XBLA and the PSN. The gameplay has been compared to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, as well as Ikaruga. The visuals invoke the minimalist look of Limbo, or Patapon. The title promotes acrobatic exploration with an added kick of bullet hell. You play as yet another Everyman called forth to save the day. There is a light and dark dichotomy at play in the game world. Enemies take on a red or blue color, while players will be able to switch between red and blue energy alignments on the fly. When a player is red they are immune to red dangers, but vulnerable to blue enemies, and vice versa.
