Meet the Super Dungeon Bros.

Super-Dungeon-Bros

Who doesn’t love a good old dungeon crawler? There’s a cracking co-op dungeon brawler heading to Xbox One and Windows 10 later this year. Super Dungeon Bros. is promising action, enemies and fighting. It stars four bros and developer, React Games wants you to meet them.

These heavy metal heroes are from Rokheim, think Dungeons and Dragons meets Spinal Tap.

  • Axl, he’s the blue guy, he fights first and asks questions later.
  • Lars, the yellow fellow, he’s a lover, not a fighter.
  • Freddie’s red and he’s a little bit nuts.
  • Ozzie’s green. He doesn’t eat bats but he is the joker in the pack.

Watch the trailer below to get more of an idea of what Super Dungeon Bros. is all about.

 

Super Dungeon Bros playable at Gamescom

superdungeonbrosWired Productions today confirmed that  Super Dungeon Bros, the rock-themed co-op dungeon brawler developed by independent studio React Games will be shown at this year’s Gamescom in association with UKIE, and will show off further new content.

As part of the recent retail distribution agreement with Nordic Games, Super Dungeon Bros will also be playable at the Nordic Games Stand.

After its successful outing at E3, Super Dungeon Br0s’  third in-game world, Bogheim, will be available for a hands-on look for the first time at Gamescom  this August.  True to its name, Bogheim is a swampy, yet beautiful world filled with perils and exciting new challenges, joining the already announced worlds of Chillheim and Cryptheim. Players will also have a chance to face never-before-seen boss fights.

In  Super Dungeon Bros, a band of mighty rock bros must navigate the endless dungeons of Rökheim, a giant scar of godforsaken earth, to seek out epic loot, fight hordes of evil undead and uncover the legends of long lost fabled Rock Stars!

Teams of up to four players either on or offline can take on the roles of heavy metal heroes; Axl, Ozzie, Freddie, and Lars and embark on a quest from the gods of rock to search ever-changing dungeons (which scale depending on the number of players) and combine rock and fantasy with dangerous foes, deadly obstacles and hazardous puzzles.

Currently set for a late 2015 release on all platforms, Super Dungeon Bros is promising not only 4 player co-op but also cross platform integration between Xbox One and Windows 10.

Siegecraft Commander revealed with cross-device play

The Siegecraft series has been around for a little while now, on various platforms. It’s soon to make it’s debut on the Xbox One, with an added twist.

As part of Microsoft’s vision to integrate Windows and the gaming power of the Xbox One, Siegecraft Commander will allow gamers to utilise cross-device play.

The aim of the game is to create the ultimate medieval fortress and wreak havoc and destruction on your enemies with tower flinging fun. You’ll need to plan the location of your towers to be able to outmanoeuvre your opponent. Luckily, the strategic elements are easy to learn so you should be victorious in next to no time.

The game will include multiplayer modes, where you could team up, have a free-for-all, a real-time battle or a turn based assault mode.

Here’s the release trailer from E3 last year, what do you think?

This isn’t the only game that will feature cross-device play, with Super Dungeon Bros from React! Games also featuring cross-device play on Windows 10 devices.

With the Windows wireless adapter for the Xbox One controller announced by Xbox supremo Phil Spencer too, Microsoft really is heading towards a true gamer-based experience with the Xbox and Windows 10 devices. Can other consoles really compete with that?

Come dungeon crawling with React! Games

Throw that chain-mail over your shoulders, sharpen that sword and cram on that helmet, it’s dungeon-crawling time. American developer, React! Games, who started life by remaking ARCHON for PC and iOS, have announced a fabulous new IP coming this autumn on Xbox One.

Super Dungeon Bros is a rock music themed co-op dungeon brawler in which a band of four super-tough bros must pillage the endless dungeons of Rokheim, a giant scar of godforsaken earth, where wars are waged in epic dungeons by the gods themselves. Buckle-up with up to four players controlling the hard-rocking warrior bros in the ever-changing dungeons which combine rock fantasy, dangerous foes, deadly obstacles and hazardous puzzles. Wayne’s World it is not!

The action will be more intense than a riff from Dragonforce as you plunder loot and take on end of level boss fights, all to the mantra of ‘Bros B4 Foes!’. The game will feature upgradeable weapons and as you can see from the trailer below, co-operative multi-player action.

Publisher, Wired Productions’ Managing Director Leo Zullo is clearly excited for this successful kickstarter,

We fell in love with Super Dungeon Bros the second we set eyes on it, and we knew we had to bring it to players worldwide. With the experience we’ve gained in developing music games, and our full on charge into digital publishing, partnering with the team at React! to bring some Rock into the fantasy world of Super Dungeon Bros was a match made in Rock Heaven!

Super Dungeon Bros will have elements that carry over from the single player campaign too, scaling itself for it, so any player can rock out on their own to the dungeon beat. The bonus with this is that you’ll keep any collectable you pick up along the way, to be used in the co-op mode. Daily and weekly challenges are promised too, as well as dedicated leaderboards.

Here’s the trailer then, get ready to rock out with your axe out.
