Metal Hug: Cobalt Is Adorable, Armed

Here's one that slipped by. Cobalt is a sidescrolling shooter with an agile robot at the helm, dodging enemies and wandering around being altogether very shooty. It looks like Metal Slug meets Machinarium meets every bullet-time game ever. Cobalt can slow down time, climb on walls, boost and hop around athletically from the word go, but weaponry is limited at the start of the game. But by the looks of things you'll eventually unlock quite a bit and turn into some kind of deathmachine. It's still being developed and may not see release for another year but dinnae be afeared, a trailer is down there to show off some of the single player action and the games music. Meanwhile, the second trailer is a drunken multiplayer bout between two of the developers at Oxeye. Thanks to Gaming Irresponsibly for bringing it back into the internet's dark embrace.

There's a pretty cool moment at around 40 seconds in this multiplayer trailer involving bullet ricochets.

Did you see that? The bullets bounced off both their heads! I don't know why but that excites me.
