ACE Team's next game is Abyss Odyssey, a 2D platformer that contains roguelike designs and randomly generated levels. The developer's intention is to have it feel like a fighting game, and have every single enemy feel formidable.

Developer Carlos Bordeu explains, "For instance if you're fighting a skeleton in the game, it's not just a simple enemy that moves forwards, backwards, and maybe just punches and throws bones. It's a complex AI with an equivalent moveset to your own."

That's a pretty tall order, but I'm eager to see more.

Review: Zeno Clash II

I've found that it's a rather fruitless endeavour to guess which games will get a sequel -- mainly because I'm usually wrong. If you'd asked me "Fraser, will there be a Zeno Clash II?" I would have confidently responded with ...more
