Oh thank goodness. I've just completed the completely excellent Shadow Complex on my 360, and am absolutely craving more 2D side-scrolling platforming fun. Just in time we receive information about Capsized, a new 2D side-scrolling platformer that's reaching Steam this Friday. Along with a copy to play. And playing it I am. I'll let you know what I think of it on Friday when it comes out, but in the meantime you can watch the trailer below. Oh, and fill the comments with suggestions of other games that might fill my Shadow Complex-shaped hole.
It began as a university project between the two members of Alien Trap Games, and has been developed into a fully-fledged finished game. They describe it:
"As a intrepid space traveler, your ship has crash landed on a mysterious alien planet. You must navigate through the perilous environment and fight off blood-thirsty creatures to save your crewmates and escape with your lives!"
So have a trailer:
And have a lengthy interview with the developers:
It's out this Friday, and will cost whatever $10 equals in your land.
And now recommend me other Metroid-a-likes. Thanks!
