Indie developer Powerhoof has announced their plans to bring their retro style RPG/beat ’em up hybrid Crawl to Steam Early Access early next month. In it, one player takes on the role of the hero who’s been tasked with clearing the trap-filled dungeons of monsters that are controlled by up to three other players in local multiplayer. If the hero falls at the hands (talons, claws) of a player-controlled monster, that player gets to replace them as the hero.
There’s XP, loot and even a boss, which is controlled by the non-hero team. I have no idea how that works, but I’m certainly intrigued.
Like all Early Access games, Crawl will release in an unfinished state. If gradual improvements don’t bother you, you can get it on Steam for $9.99 starting August 6.
