Capy, the game developer behind sweet indie pearls Super Time Force and Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery EP are finally ready to release their next big title. Cold During the moody roguelike survival game has been in the works for five long years and now it will be released next week, December 14th. The title remains an Xbox console exclusive, but you can also play it on PC. There is no word on prices.
In March 2016, Capy said the game would come out in the summer, but eventually ended the development to complete the game OK K.O.! Let's play heroes based on the Cartoon Network show with the same name. Capy said it wanted to take the time to secure During the treatment was deserved and the title has slowly made rounds of indie game showcases since. The developer has been relatively quiet about when exactly that would come out, just saying that it would probably be by the end of the year. It seems that Capy holds on that promise, as the game looks a surprise launch for the holiday season.
I've actually played pieces and pieces of the game over the past three years or so and every time it has become more refined and mysterious. The game seems to be a roguelike with some Metroidvania thrown in, with its most prominent influences Hyper Light Drifter The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and ] Dark Souls .
The fight punishes, and death sends you back to the beginning of the game in some cases. Promoting future involves mastering the game's survival, incorporating elements like temperature and starvation, as well as solving tasks and finding shortcuts that let you progress each time. This is how Capy describes it:
Test your fairy tales against The Isle's processional underground mazes. Explore a large, interconnected underworld cry with artificial creatures, deadly traps and a mysterious shady presence. Survive the dangers of the depths and reveal what lies below … or die to try. Below is exploration and discovery ̵1; highlighting the road ahead, finding hidden passages and unraveling the deepest mysteries that are hidden in the dark your own way.
Frankly, I can not wait to play it. I have been waiting for years.
