Hope I can play as that long-haired fiddling reaper chap.

Hey there, did you enjoy the Zeno Clash series? Well done, you are a smart person of taste. The sequel didn’t quite give me the same warm and lovely feelings as the original, but they’re both astonishing games in many ways.

, the fellows behind those games, have now announced , a side-scrolling brawler-type game with a couple of neat twists. The one that interests me most (as described in the launch video below) is the concept of AI foes being drawn from a background roster of fighter templates. This means ‘some skeleton guy’ will have a similar move-set to your own character and the skills to use them, rather than just being a generic enemy.

Abyss Odyssey will also let you take the souls of your vanquished foes and then play as that person/thing. Again, the video below has a bit more information about this as well as footage from the game.

No release date for this one yet, but I’m immediately adding to my mental list of interesting-looking games.
