Capsized Looks Swell, Exciting, Difficult

Capsized is yet another 2011 release that I am sure will entertain anybody who is over-bored (overboard) (DO YOU SEE). Developers Alientrap have released a brand new trailer for their indie platformer featuring platforming, puzzling, battling and death-defying leaps, often all at the same time. Most peculiar! You'll see what I mean when you watch it below.

Last year when Kieron posted the first Capsized trailer he began hollering about how it was a spiritual successor to ancient BBC Micro game Exile. Both for completion's sake and because it's amusing to see the two games side by side, I've put a video of it beneath the jump, too.

First, the new Capsized. Bear with this. It all starts going a bit crazycakes after 1:23. "Challenged" indeed.

...followed by 1988 title Exile. Look at that nasty little Space-Bat! He's not taking no for an answer.

(The Space-Bat makes its debut at 0:44.)
