Kenny from Cellar Door Games was good enough to contact us and give us the low down on Band of Bears
Here is how he descirbe the game:
“Join a ragtag group of adventuring bears as they travel the world in search of gold and glory. With support for up to four players on a single screen, explore exotic locales with your family and friends and work together to solve dastardly puzzles, defeat relentless enemies, and uncover ancient treasures. Grow from wannabe adventurers and earn your reputation as strapping treasure hunters by gaining experience, leveling-up, learning new abilities and discovering secret riches.
Band of Bears takes a fresh approach to cooperative gameplay by changing the game based on the number of adventurers. The world provides new puzzles, enemies, and experiences whether you play it solo, with a friend, or with a whole group. Hand-drawn and hand-animated, Band of Bears provides an immersive and charming experience that can be enjoyed by casual and hardcore gamers alike.”
I am really looking forward to playing Band of Bears the gameplay looks great and in the video it looks like Cellar Door have managed to incorporate the multiplayer game very well. We’ll let you know more when we hear about a release date.
Until then, you had better start saving for some MS points, there are just so many good games in the XNA/XBLIG pipeline.
