Trench Run is another 2D action game from Transhuman Design and it looks like a blast to play. Make friends, and then blow them to bits.

Update: The developers just sent us keys, so both myself and Samsai now have keys to take a look.

The developers emailed me in a little preview months ago, and it looked like it would be quite cool. It's mainly a multiplayer (local co-op and online) game, so hopefully a few people will pick it up so that we can have a session together.

This could be a good one for us to livestream with a few of you, so let me know if you're going to get it.

You can grab it from the developer directly, or from Steam. Article taken from

Oh interesting !
King Arthur's Gold was pure gold indeed. I hope this one is as funny :-)

Quoting: GuestThis reminds me I need to actually play King Arthur's Gold. It seems like it could be fun as hell, but I've only played 50 mins of it. I hope with this game out, the population doesn't die off. Shiprekt looks great too. :/
KAG can be frustrating because you depend quite a bit on the team and sometimes you are lead to a spiral of losses or easy wins without competition. When the match is balanced, however, it shines like few multiplayers out there. Really intense and funny.

EDIT: bought it and played for a while. Interesting, fun for a while but still at a very early stage of development. On the other hand, awesome to have proper treatment (day-1 Linux:-)

Just bought it. Really nice, like soldat, just without mouse control. Battles are quite short though and xbox360 controller seems to refuse to work (with xboxdrv).

edit: If somebody else has trouble getting xboxdrv to work, here's a custom control file I created that emulates keyboard commands - controls still have to be adjusted in the game menu (keyboard settings) because default controls are set in a strange way.

Just save this file as trenchrun.xboxdrv and then type sudo xboxdrv -c trenchrun.xboxdrv into your terminal (assuming xboxdrv is installed).
