Warlocks takes its cooperative fantasy brawling to Kickstarter

Like Risk of Rain with magic and moonwalking

Risk of Rain was pretty cool, so anything that reminds me of that catches my attention. Warlocks looks to have a similar feel in some ways, bringing frantic 2D battles to a fantasy world. I typically shy away from fantasy in lieu of science fiction, but the cooperative gameplay and nice-looking pixel art will have my eyes on this one as it moves forward.

The Kickstarter campaign for Warlocks launched yesterday, and is seeking a modest goal of $25,000. It has already been greenlit for Steam to launch on Windows, Mac, and Linux next April, but could possibly come to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later.
