It’s a roguelike sport however you’ll be able to keep away from permadeath

Batterystaple Games is again with extra not-quite-Mega Man-but-close-enough vibes.

Following within the footsteps of the action-platformer roguelike 20XX, the studio is releasing the sequel, 30XX, on Steam Early Access on February 17, 2021. If you love Mega Man X and/or Zero, looky right here.

30XX has six stage themes lined up for the Early Access launch. The sport has native and on-line co-op, a stage editor, and if you happen to’re not feeling the roguelike warmth, there’s additionally a “permadeath-free” Mega Mode.

The first time by went nicely sufficient – 20XX landed over 200,000 gamers and “Early Access was hugely influential in shaping 20XX into something special,” in accordance to Batterstaple founder Chris King – so I’m anticipating good issues once more. The new artwork course from Glauber Kotaki is such a glow-up.

I briefly performed an early construct of 30XX final yr and most necessary of all, the platforming felt proper.
