New Double Fine game blends Monster Hunter with Harryhausen movies
22nd Nov 2012 | 10:10
So far Double Fine's Amnesia Fortnight prototype jam has yielded a brilliant little collection of downloadable games.
Costume Quest gave the classic adventure RPG an adorable Halloween themed makeover. Stacking, a puzzle game starring dapper matryoshka dolls, was bursting with charm. Iron Brigade's vision of an alternate post-World War l world where players use mobile trenches to fight off invading robots was strategic and complex but still managed to remain breezy.
The newly revealed prototype for the studio's next game suggests it's planning to offer more of the same personality and quirk.
Title 'Brazen', the newest product of Double Fine's Amnesia Fortnight is billed as a co-op brawler with beast-hunting gameplay inspired by Capcom's Monster Hunter. The beasts themselves are an homage to Ray Harryhausen's classic stop-motion movies. The game, which is the brainchild of Iron Brigade creator Brad Muir, will be released on PC and support co-operative online play.
