In my humble opinion, there aren’t nearly enough games based on the thespian scene. Frima Studios, a Canadian indie developer, are about to address this. Talent Not Included is heading to Xbox One and the developer has released exactly when curtain-up will be.
Talent Not Included is an action combat platformer where mechanical animals, hard-headed monsters and rotating cylinders will challenge you in one of the most demanding platform experiences to hit the console scene. Set in the land of Notthatmuchfarther, the game tells the story of three monsters; Zordok, Derp and Kevin. All three are huge fans of slaughter, bloodbaths and Shakespeare.
One night, as they were all bored out of their monstrous skulls, they decided to put on their own play. Unfortunately, nothing went as planned. This was mostly because Zot, a demonic critic hired for the occasion, chose three of the most mediocre actors for his own amusement. These actors all have strong personalities, and Zot is hoping to sow hell on stage.
You will play as one of these three terrible thespians in the hopes of making a huge profit from your frankly abysmal performance. Break a leg!
The game will feature a basketful of combat, taking place over cylindrical platforms. Absurd humour also heavily features as well as a local co-op mode. Co-op will allow you to go head-to-head from the comfort of your armchair, guiding your hapless actor through paper-craft inspired levels.
Talent Not Included will have it’s opening night soon. Expect curtain-up promptly on the 5th of April.
