    Gauntlet Remake Being Released September 3rd

    Gauntlet remake, I don't know if anyone here are fans. I played the old ones only a handful of times. They were fun.

    It is going to be available on SteamOS, the question is can you plug in 4 controllers and do local multiplayer. I'm sure there is press on this somewhere but I haven't googled it yet.

    Also in this post: Video

    The steam page seems to suggest you can: “Battle the endless hordes of foes as you and your friends fight for treasure and glory via both local and online co-op multiplayer. Invade the Darkness this Summer on PC and Steam Machines!”

    Guess that unreleased DS game is never coming out. If this turns out bad, there’s always Hammerwatch though.

    The graphics look very monotonous, which kills it for me.

    Yea, as someone who played Gauntlet Legends I miss the really bright color palette.

    Notable that it's coming from the people who did Magicka

    Not sure if that's a good or bad thing - expect a fecal waterslide of DLC I guess?

    It is the 3D graphics and lighting that does it. "Realism" and dynamic lighting effects replacing clear and colorful fantasy abstraction. It is half of what killed my interest in the game. (The other half being that it just doesn't look that fun to play.)

    I was really excited about the idea of a Gauntlet remake, but I saw nothing in this that looked too interesting. The colors are far too muted, and there's too much slash and not enough hack.

    Also, the Magicka devs being involved is not a plus for me. Slow and buggy multiplayer or impossible single-player were the two choices in Magicka. They didn't even try to fix singleplayer at all; some simple number changing and a better save system could have done it, instead they added Navi.

    I never played the original Gauntlet, but you know what I want to see a remake of? Hollow Ground. It was a sort of moody gauntlet-inspired roguelite with zombies made by a Swedish indie a number of years back (before 'indie' and 'roguelite' were things). A brilliant game, but too far ahead of it's time...

    Am I crazy? I thought there already WAS a guantlet remake?
    I think of [the Internet] as a grisly raw steak laid out on a porcelain benchtop in the sun, covered in chocolate hazelnut sauce. In the background plays Stardustís Music Sounds Better With You. Thereís lots of fog. --tomeoftom

    You ruined his point by putting it in context thatís cheating -bull0

    Gauntlet isn't meant to be fun; it's meant to separate you from your quarters.
