First public hands-on for the Xbox One roguelike
Next weekend in Boston, PAX East attendees will have the opportunity to play Capy's roguelike Below for the first time. It'll be at the Capy x Double Fine booth, and another of the studio's titles, the rad run-and-gun Super Time Force, will be playable over at Microsoft's booth. Just look at that little guy in the top right-hand corner of the screenshot. Heh. He's poop. Poop with a gun.
If I'm going to a gaming convention in which Super Time Force is playable -- it usually is, let's be honest -- it's a top priority that I seek the game out. Not too much longer now before final release, I hope. Last we heard, Capy was targeting May/June depending on certification.
From what I've seen of the PAX East lineup, a few of the major publishers have backed off or are bringing little if anything new to the expo. No matter. There's always the Indie Megabooth, designers running around with a laptop for one-on-one demos, and everything in between.
