The Canadian retro specialists responsible for Wizorb and Mercenary Kings are hard at work on a new 2D action fest known as Curses ‘N Chaos. Tribute Games this week issued the first footage of its latest pixel art extravaganza, and if this early in-game glimpse is any guide, Curses ‘N Chaos will offer the same sense of familiarity that saw the studio’s previous offerings attract a cult following.
Curses ‘N Chaos appears to be set in a fairy tale world at constant risk of being overrun by all manner of ghoulish creatures. You’ll be tasked with facing down waves of ghosts, skeletons and wolves, as well as the occasional toad. Fortunately, you won’t have to fight this battle on you own, with co-op play shaping as a significant part of the appeal.
Look for Curses ‘N Chaos to make its way to PC and Vita, a platform pairing that seems to be becoming increasingly common in the world of indie development.
