The team responsible for Alien Hominid, Castle Crashers and the more recent BattleBlock Theatre has unveiled (though curiously enough declined to name) its latest project. Best known for its quirky character action games, The Behemoth has surprised its fans by announcing a turn based strategy title. For the moment at least, the project is known as Game 4.
Our first glimpse at gameplay has arrived in the form of a bizarre teaser trailer, complete with bonkers voiceover. While Game 4 maintains the offbeat art style of the developer’s previous releases, actions now appear to be carried out on a hexagonal field likely to appeal to old school strategy and RPG fans.
In terms of story, the game takes place on a world decimated by the impact of a giant six-legged bear and waves of highly acidic rain. Yes, a giant six-legged bear. It’s all explained (sort of) in this gameplay-free video primer.
Platforms and release dates are yet to be confirmed.
