By - | Views: 10,023
Forced is a one- to four-player co-op arcade adventure with puzzle and tactical elements. You are cast as slaves in the toughest fantasy gladiator school of them all, condemned to fight as a gladiator and eventually win your freedom. You will face deadly trials and huge creatures, but Balfus, your Spirit Mentor will guide you in your quest for recognition.
  • 25 Arenas and 5 Bosses 
  • Four Unique Character Classes, with 16 unlockable abilities each 
  • Advanced tactical artificial intelligence - mobs work together against your group in combat, sacrificing one another as shields or buffing their monster allies on the fly to better fight your group 
  • The Spirit Mentor, an extra party member which players must control in unison to gain an upper hand over the enemy 
  • A Mark Combat System, where players can apply marks to enemies and then consume and destroy them with powerful skills

Currently at a discounted price for the early access so now is the time to pick it up.

Looks fantastic but isn't tbh. I just played through the demo version and it is some kind of boring. No real storyline, same thing again and again. But at least it looks great. :/

I played demo as well, you also need to rename FORCED_Data folder to Data to be able to launch the demo.
it seems fun little game when played in co-op, but alone is quite boring to be honest
