MechKnight Chronicles reminds me of Guardian Heroes


11:00 AM on 05.01.2013



Check out Dinosaur Games' upcoming title MechKnight Chronicles, which is slated to come to Steam (PC, Mac, and Linux) and most likely Ouya too. Dinosaur calls this game their love letter to the brawler genre, citing games like Knights of the Round, Shadow of Mystaria, Castle Crashers, and the wonderful Sega Saturn classic Guardian Heroes as inspirations. My attention? They have it.

Dinosaur Games is a new group of industry vets, coming from teams that worked on games like BloodRayne 2, Conan, Ghostbusters: TVG, and Shadows of the Damned. They say that they're looking to bring the type of games they grew up with to the new generation.

MechKnight Chronicles is still early (only about 3 months in), but it's showing rather well for the short time it has been in production. When it's all said and done, up to four players can pick from 10 characters to cooperatively go at it to save the world. There's multiple paths to follow, an RPG-ish experience and stat system, and some seriously badass music. I'm sure you'll agree that these are all key ingredients for a top-notch brawler.

I'm definitely digging it, but if you like what you see, let Dinosaur Games (and the Steam Overlords) know via their Greenlight page.

We'll be testing out an early build and will report back soon.

Ah, Touhou Project. The hyper-popular series of bullet-hell shooters has long been a Holy Grail of sorts for non-PC-owning otaku, and the efforts to get games with the Touhou brand on various consoles have been mighty indeed...more

A free roguelike with music by Banjo-Kazooie's Grant Kirkhope? Yes, please!

I'm struggling to stop playing The Enchanted Cave 2 for long enough to tell you about it. Unassuming name and overabundance of roguelikes aside, this browser-based game is terrific. You delve into a cavern in search of gold, ...more

Axiom Verge does speedrunning and gifs right

I had Axiom Verge on my mind earlier today when writing about Ghost Song, another promising Metroidvania. This slick gif ensures the game will remain there for the rest of the day. Designer Tom Happ included it in a blog post...more
