Outland Co-op Trailer Reveals Its Release Date

By zigs00, 5 years ago
Every now and then, a game comes along with such a unique art style and arresting visuals that make it completely stand out amongst the gluttony of relentless me-too, boring-looking titles. It is instantly intriguing, begging to be played right away so you can fully experience and appreciate its world. Outland is definitely one of those games - though you can judge that for yourself in the co-op trailer below:



See what I mean? The game is a 2D platformer inspired by Prince of Persia, putting players "in the middle of a world of balance and chaos where their efforts allow them to bridge the ancient divide, or doom the world to destruction." The game's world is ever-changing, with its core light versus dark gameplay inspired by Ikaruga.

The game has been created by Finnish developer Housemarque, whose previous work includes http://www.trueachievements.com/Golf-Tee-It-Up-xbox-360.htm and PSN-exclusives Dead Nation and Super Stardust HD. Video game music nerds might be happy to hear that Ari Pulkkinen has done the music for the game, who also scored the excellent Trine soundtrack.
