Planet Io Entertainment's latest project, Ancient Axes: Heroes on Paper, has nearly two weeks left to go on its Kickstarter. Control two heroes at once for mind-bending single player or play with friends for action-packed, classic Gauntlet-style multiplayer. The project hopes to bring back the 1980's feel of couch and arcade co-op and promises to deliver the game to multiple platforms, including Linux.
Ancient Axes: Heroes on Paper Gameplay Video
Ancient Axes will provide the player with three unique game modes: a single player adventure focused on combat and puzzles that require the player to control two characters at once, a separate, 2-4 player campaign with an action-arcade feel, and an Endurance mode, which is also multiplayer, and will act like a Horde mode from other games, having players defend themselves against throngs of enemies in a specific arena.
