One of the new IPs being shown off at this year’s PC Gaming Show from the good people over at Devolver Digital, nearly a decade since Awesomenauts, developer Ronimo Games has revealed what’s coming next: Blightbound. Take a look at the trailer below.

Blightbound, a three-player dungeon crawler set in a fantasy realm where the death of a legendary beast that was plaguing the land just made things worse.

Players and their friends will venture forth from your elevated abode to “explore handcrafted dungeons, fight a terrifying cadre of mystical and monstrous enemies, grab valuable loot, and recover fallen heroes to expand your roster of available warriors.” The side-scrolling gameplay will cover three distinct lands with several dungeons on each.

The game promises both local and online co-op gameplay and will have a particular focus on teamwork. Each of the game’s three classes, warrior, assassins, and mage (but more than 20 unique heroes to add to your roster), and hundreds of lootable and craftable items, will wield unique abilities and fill specific roles in order to solve puzzles and defeat colossal enemies.

For a little more of the gameplay check out the video below.

Blightbound is expected to arrive on Steam Early Access this summer, and until then you can find out more at blightbound.com.
