Powerhoof! Crawl Launch Announcement...


Finally ready for launch, AND COMING TO CONSOLES 🙂

After all this time we’re finally ready to call this thing 1.0! We have a new boss all ready to go, a bunch of new stuff including achievements, Steam trading cards etc, and our buddy Jon has been slaving away on console ports!

I’m just putting the finishing touches on our launch trailer after a few recording sessions with Ye Old Shrimpeyes, so be ready for more video silliness on the 11th 🙂

Also TAKE THAT YARRIS!!! Finally someone with the guts to take those Yarris guys down a peg!

    • Yeah I noticed he’s looking a little more trim and fit in this video than usual… maybe he’s been working out? He definitely knows a good pair of gloves when he sees them though!

    Congratulations you guys. Been sticking with you since 0.7 and you’ve been the early access game I’ve followed the closest. My friends still want to play it every week they are over and still ask me if you guys have the 3rd boss in yet. I loved every update you put out and, eagerly await the continued polish this game will have. Now if you excuse me, I’m off to text like 10 people about your launch date.

    Reply
    • Thanks, that’s so cool to hear 🙂 We still have a bunch more boss designs, so we’re hoping to add some more after launch in free updates!

  9. I have only just heard of this game, it sounds like exactly what I want to play with friends.
    Is there any chance of this coming to the Switch? It seems like a great fit for it!

    Reply
    • After the Wii U did so poorly I had kind of written off the concept of doing Crawl for Nintendo consoles, but the Switch is a great console, seems to be doing well with sales, and really looks like a great fit for Crawl… no plans right now as we’re so busy getting PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions ready, but we’ll definitely be looking into it 🙂

      • i would DEFINITELY buy this game again for the switch, even for double the price! just make sure to include 4 person multiplayer on a single console as well as lan multiplayer 😀

  10. Any chance this will come to GOG?

  11. This is definitely the most hilarious launch trailer I’ve ever seen 😀 Unfortunately, I hadn’t heard of your game before the news of your upcoming release of version 1.0 hit the web, but after seeing your brilliant trailer I’m hooked!

    Based on the graphics and multiplayer aspect alone, this reminds me of that old action-packed multiplayer gem “Liero” – a game that I loved!

    Fun fact: “Liero” is the Finnish word for “Worm”. The more you know!

    Sorry for the randomness of this comment, and congratulations on finally releasing your game!

    Sweet, now I have an excuse to own three copies of Crawl! Still doesn’t explain the two steam copies I already own… oh well! But seriously, I absolutely cannot wait for this. It’s been amazing watching this game evolve over time, thanks entirely to the hard work and dedication shown by its amazing Australian developers.

    Now, go show Yaris who’s boss!!!

    I’ve been with you guys for a while now and have been eagerly awaiting this announcement! I’m so excited and I know it’s gonna be amazing. Seeing the evolution of this game as it progressed was awesome and I know it’ll be a blast! Congrats to both of you!

    Yes! I can’t wait for this game to become a real deal! This game, even in early access, was definitely worth the ten dollars. The intense fights when the hero is bleeding, gaining more powerful monsters, the music getting more intense as more heroes make it to level 10, trying out bosses and monsters, having friends over makes it way better as you can give glares at the one who killed you. this game is perfect for game nights or parties, one time I hosted a 1v1 tournament with my 2 friends and my brothers (sadly I wasn’t in it as I played Crawl WAY too much when I got it about right before the Halloween update and kinda took a break from it) anyway one of my friends won that, I have loved Crawl, from when my uncle showed it to me and my brothers, to how I play it too much now.

    Now my annoying questions are back! so will we be getting things like custom options?(choose your own monsters, % of wrath or xp gained, 1 hit kill, etc) or could we get AI difficulty options, because when I play against them they are too easy, they can kill my hero guy about twice a match and I can take his out easily, and finally, are you planning on alternate game modes after the full game is out? I would love to see different game modes.
    Your friend-Lane

      so, I put more effort into that then into school

    • We might look at some game option type stuff after launch- it was something we wanted to investigate but just didn’t get the time. As for AI difficulty, we have 3 difficulty levels already- have you been playing on HARD with them? If you’re finding them too easy even on hard, there is a system for taunting gods rather than worshiping them, which makes things more challenging, but requires those deity options be unlocked (through playing a bunch of games). Also there is a secret technique heroes can perform in the landing room before the boss, which can upgrade the boss difficulty for players who are finding the boss encounters too much of a pushover 🙂
