Edit: Oh holy crap this game! I saw alpha footage of this awhile back, hope it's awesome
Clone murder? Sounds interesting. We'll see.
I'm always weary of 'funny' video games, most of the time they fall flat on their face. But Magicka was charming, and this looks to show some promise.
Looks... neat? Not enough extended gameplay to tell, but color me interested so far.
Magicka was janky as fuck but easily some of the dumbest best fun i've had in coop with friends so this should be great.
Dat Abs. But seriously, fighting space clones with a scientist in 2D sounds pretty cool.
I want a donut now.
"Fight to the death, or die trying" is possibly the best slogan I've heard from a video game, well, ever.
It took me an embarrassing few seconds to really get it. It is truly a great slogan.
Magicka was a lot of fun playing with friends, hoping for a similar experience with this game.
I almost wish the dialog is in fake-swedish.
I can't tell if this is a side-scrolling hack-and-slash, or a Smash Bros. Clone, but I am very on board to see how this one'll turn out.
I had zero knowledge or interest in this game before seeing this post.
I feel like things went from zero to 100 too fast, I have whiplash
Right as I was about to complain about there not being any in-game footage, there it is.
Cool voice, cool magicka, cool buy
Looks pretty okay to me.
edit: ESPORTS the shit out of it.
Looks like my kind of game!
It seems like this game has a metroidvania thing going on. I hope it does, I like those kinds of games, and there aren't enough of them.
On the other hand, if I just get to murder dudes in awesome ways in a 2D platformer, that's pretty nice all on its own.
Gameplay doesn't do much for me, but I love the bad grammar line.
Dude this looks coooool.
The sign ups for the beta are here!
ya that looks pretty cool
Magicka was broken in many ways, and as said janky as damn. but still put 120 hr into it with friends.
So im looking forward to this
Where the heck has this game been I heard about it a while ago and it sounded like it was coming out this year.
*Seal of approval*
2D brawling in the style of John Woo!
"Fight to the death, or die trying"
THE ABS SOLD ME ON THE GAME
There are sign ups for the beta herelooks fairly open for anyone to get in. Just need a steam ID
@pancakehumper: Thanks, duder! Just signed up. Hope I get in!
This trailer made my subwoofer go nuts. That makes it an automatic buy, right?
Paradox can do me no wrong. One of my favourite publishers.
ABS HOLY SHIT
*looks at my own "abs"*
Nice dripping sweaty six pack abs!
Looks like beer belly abs to me.
Reminds me of Shank, hopefully it's better than Shank was.
Your grammar is so bad you have to let your fists do the talking. I totally laughed out loud. There is one thing for sure, this studio has jokes.
How about fixing Magicka first?
Kinda sad they're not doing a proper Magicka sequel. It was janky and the controls are far too much for the human mind to handle, but with some refinement it could easily become the best thing ever.
This looks dumb as heck though, which I'm on board for.
So this reminds me a lot of Oxeye games' Cobalt. http://www.playcobalt.com/
So is this abuse or is it cobalt or is it something else entirely? I can't tell.
Nobel peace prize winning scientist father? What kind of science is that?
Norman Borlaug got a peace price for his contributions to securing the world food supply and he basically invented better wheat and did biology. Can't think of any others off the top of my head.
I've been looking forward to this game. I never played Cobalt, but this appears to have the 2D fighting similar to that with a lot more personality.
But his abs where just one day away from retirement!
