Co-op dungeon crawler Super Dungeon Bros will be released Nov. 1, 2016

No GravatarIndependent Games Publisher Wired Production has released a new trailer along with a release date for their upcoming co-op dungeon brawler Super Dungeon Bros.

Super Dungeon Bros is divided into three unique worlds in the realm Rökheim, where heavy metal heroes Axl, Lars, Freddie and Ozzie will explore Cryptheim (an underground dungeon complex), Chillheim (a brewery built upon a natural brew geyser) and Bogheim (a sprawling jungle filled with poisonous plants and animals). No matter how many times these heroes enter the worlds, with the game’s random room generation AI, the dungeon combinations are endless.

Their mission is to vanquish the evil undead, uncover the legends of long lost fabled rock stars, and all the while find loads of loot. Featuring on or offline play with four bros as they fling their friends onto far off ledges and distant trap triggers, or unleash their best tag team tactics with the ultimate bro-op offensive.

Cross-platform online multiplayer is now scheduled for a post-launch release with further details to be announced soon.

Developed by Utah-based React Games, Super Dungeon Bros, is set to launch worldwide at physical and digital retailers for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam for Windows PC on November 1, 2016 for an MSRP of $19.99. Check out the new trailer that was released below.

You can follow the game’s development over on our devlog, where we encourage you to chat with us in the comments section of our weekly updates.

We plan to be very open with you about the creation of Runner3, and we even plan to solicit feedback occasionally and offer user polls to give everyone a chance to chime in and help us think of things like level names, possible unlockable outfits, and more.

Let’s work together to make Runner3 the best game it can be!

This is great news and I eagerly await to see what they will do with the series next. No platforms have been announced yet but it will likely come to all major systems in 2017.

No Gravatartalent-not-included

Every so often, there comes an indie game that tries to do something a little out of the ordinary. Talent Not Included is an action platformer, which seems simple enough, but there is a twist in that all the action is in the form of a stage play. This twist makes this game one of the most unique indie platformers out there.

The game takes full advantage of its settings, moving from location to location is done in the form of a stage transition. This is a really cool twist on screen transitions in video games, and helps both bring you further into the game and at the same time, be taken out of it in a meta way. That’s not to say the game is easy, oh my no. This is a very hard platformer, although it tricks you by starting out easy enough.

What gives this game more of a unique flair is how it takes the different acts of a play and applies it to a video game, by having each act have a different playable character. This was a cool take on not just the three act set up but also video game tropes in general. Each character has their own motivation for doing what they do, and while it isn’t the best story in a game, it serves its purpose very well.

The music in this game is excellent, but I feel it could have been better by being more involved and giving you a sense of being in a theatre. Its good for what it is, but it feels light.  The game’s visual design is amazing and really ties into the theatre motif by having your progression in each scene ( the levels in each act) cause the terrain to shift as if on a wheel.

Do I think this is a game worth checking out? I think so. Its got a lot of potential for enjoyment and has a good unique hook. It is definitely worth a few hours of play.

No GravatarRomanian Indie Developer Those Awesome Guys has released a new DLC for their PC game Move or Die on Steam today.

The DLC titled “The Best Value Update” includes two new game modes, six Mutators, adds an in-game chate and improves online features:

  • Two New Game Modes: Loot Grab & Mind Control – Loot Grab will have players grab randomly spawning loot to carry back to their loot chest. Mind Control gives the ability to swap controls with opposing players by touching them and killing “mind controlled” characters before the end of the round
  • Six New Mutators – New Mutator options to spice up each of the game modes include:
    • VVVVVV – With a blessing from Terry Cavanagh himself, the creator of VVVVVV, we’ve introduced the popular gravity-reversal mechanic to Move or Die
    • NSFW – Every character becomes naked, therefore they get censored
    • Decoys – A crowd of non-interactive characters run around the level making it more difficult to spot your opponents
    • Stabilizer – The highest scoring player moves slower while the lowest scoring player moves faster
    • Underwater – Submerges the entire game underwater causing the players to float around the level freely
    • Bomb Drop – Players automatically drop exploding bombs every few seconds
  • New Game Announcer – YouTube personality Lilypichu adds her distinct and recognizable voice to announcer lineup of Move or Die. Kawaii!
  • In-game Chat – Players can now chat with each other using the new in-match chat system and can be used at all times
  • Abandon Penalty – Rage quitters beware as players who abandon online games before they are finished will receive a temporary “No XP” penalty that will prevent any XP from being gained for the next few rounds

Move or Die is a fast-paced, 4-player local and online party game where the mechanics change every 20 seconds, currently available on PC, Mac, Linux & SteamOS.

Check out the screenshots and trailer that accompanied the DLC announcement below:


The DLC is free and to celebrate the release, Those Awesome Guys are living up to their name by droping the price to $7.49 as part of the Steam Daily Deal. This will only be for a limited time before the price goes back to the retail price of $14.99.
