Curses 'N Chaos Revealed By Mercenary Kings Devs

Two-button co-op brawler

I'm struggling to think of things I could say about this Curses 'N Chaos trailer that aren't sarcastic. It's an 8-bit-styled game where you seem to jump and stab monsters then sometimes a booby anime witch appears to say something encouraging. It's a video game, I guess?

But that's unkind: many of my favourite video games have involved jumping, stabbing, or monsters. The latest from Mercenary Kings developers Tribute Games is not a game that will come across well in a 93-second video of snippets. It will (or won't, who could say?) be in the feel and timing of strikes, the tension as hordes of ghosts rush you, hoping desperately that a health pickup will drop, and the joy of collecting loads of tinkling coins. Come watch the first trailer and you'll see.

The two-button co-op brawler is due to arrive this autumn.
