Your canine has been kidnapped (dognapped?) and dragged off to the Creepy Old Chemical Factory on the sting of city. Y’know, the one with all of the mutants and irradiated goop in. What do you do? Grab a buddy or three, dive in and doubtless mutate horribly, as a result of nothing will get between a person and his greatest buddy. That’s arcade rogue-lite Freaky Awesome in a nutshell, and it’s due out this October 18th.
Two heads are higher than one, and we’re not (simply) speaking about mutations. Here are some of the best co-op games on PC.
Looking like a mashup of The Binding of Isaac and Crawl with a beneficiant sprinkling of The Toxic Avenger (ew) for flavour, this one simply seems enjoyable. The mutations – whereas not fairly as unhinged thematically as Isaac’s powerup-stacking nonsense – look so as to add an thrilling spin to the sport, successfully switching the gamers between character courses, and bolstering them with fascinating new talents. In order to additional nudge gamers into taking dangers, mutating comes with the secondary advantage of restoring misplaced well being.
Freaky Awesome guarantees on-line and native co-op for as much as 4 gamers, and a long-term development programs within the vein of Isaac or Rogue Legacy, with new objects, expertise and mutations (together with the types of bosses that you just’ve killed) being unlocked via repeat playthroughs. We hope to dive deeper into Freaky Awesome nearer to launch, and assuming we come out of the expertise with fingers (or finger-equivalent appendages), share our ideas on the expertise later this month.
