Today, the PC Gaming Show 2022 unearthed our first look at Klei Interactive’s – of Don’t Starve fame and Mark of the Ninja – new project, Rotwood.
In a brand new trailer premiered today, we caught a glimpse of Rotwood’s flavor of hack-and-slash dungeon crawling across colorful swamp-like lands. You’ll play as what appears to be a diverse cast of sassy critters, wielding spells and melee attacks to down various equally cartoon-esque corrupted beasts, and gather up remains to piece together a safe haven for you and up to three friends.
The Don’t Starve roots are clear as day, bleeding into the art style, although refined and sharper, likely thanks to the development skills and tricks amassed by Klei since the survival title launched way back in 2013.
Check it out below.
“Hack and slash your way through the Rotwood in this rogue-like dungeon crawler developed by Klei Entertainment. Explore and fight through a labyrinthian maze of dense forest and vicious vegetation with up to 3 of your friends. Forge your path through ever-increasing challenges and rewards to bring the spoils of your adventure back and craft new weapons and armor or fortify your safe haven.”
Rotwood launches on PC in early access in 202? (intentional question mark here as shown off in the trailer). You can wishlist Rotwood over Steam right now.
