Any fans of retro gaming will recognise the ASCII style adopted by Brut@l – perhaps they won’t recognise the fashion that Brut@l uses it though. Check out the reveal trailer below to see what I mean:
I absolutely love the style of Brut@l – add to that the Gauntlet-style arcade dungeon crawling gameplay and I know we’re on to a winner.
“Choose your hero: Ranger, Mage, Warrior or Amazon then descend into a procedurally generated world constructed entirely from ASCII.
Craft and enchant weapons, brew and drink strange potions, risk their effects and level up your hero based on the play style that suits you. Most of all, survive for as long as you can as you battle Trolls, Orcs, Rockmonsters, Lycanthorpes and many more in this Brut@l roguelike.
Share the adventure by exploring Brut@l’s dungeon with a friend in local co-op, laying waste to the hordes of enemies that stand between you and floor 26, evoking the nostalgia of all night gaming sessions from years past.
Get creative with Brut@l’s Dungeon Creator, an intuitive editing tool that lets you build, play, share and even die in your very own dungeon.”
I can’t wait to try Brut@l out – we’ll be getting our hands on it on the Playstation 4 early 2016.
