Slay the hero to become him in Crawl


2:15 PM on 03.04.2014



Last year we got a brief look at Crawl which has the most ingenious multiplayer system I've seen in a long time. One player will take on a courageous hero, hacking and slashing his way through a dungeon whilst the other players will take control of evil spirits trying to stop him. They can take charge of traps or monsters to slay the hero and if they do, they'll become the hero.

From the trailer above, it looks like there might be some frantic and frenzied action to get the final blow in so that you can become the hero. I thought Crawl might be more co-op focused but I think having the evil players competing against each other as well as the hero player might make this a really unique experience.

Crawl is on Greenlight right now, so get voting on it because I want more local multiplayer games on my PC, along with Nidhogg and Samurai Gun

Crawl is back with a new release date and an 'IRS MAN' monster

I absolutely loved the way Powerhoof handled its delay of Crawl due to some untimely tax issues that needed to be resolved before the game was released. The studio wasn't sure how long it would take to get back on track, but...more

Now this is how you delay a game

We only just got word that Crawl would arrive on Steam Early Access on July 17, but that's no longer the case. The four-person dungeon crawler is going to be late -- "it could be a couple days, it could be a couple weeks," re...more

Framed is Metal Gear Solid's Hideo Kojima's game of the year

Review: Sneaky Sneaky

Stealth is a tricky game mechanic to pull off well. If it is too slow it can be dull, but if it is too fast it is more action than stealth. If it is too predictable it becomes mundane, but if it is too random it requires more...more
