Slot this one in between He-Man and Centurions in terms of classic Saturday morning cartoon vibes, with MythForce featuring the sort of animated look and feel where a well-placed sugary cereal or plastic figurine commercial wouldn't be out of place. From developer Beamdog (Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition) this is every bit an 80s love letter.
In the guise of a four-player co-op, first-person dungeon crawler meets rogue-lite.
Saturday Mornings Are Back!
Become a cartoon hero in a bodacious 80s fantasy world. Scratch that nostalgic itch with wholesome fun that’s easy to pick up and play (but tough to master). In true rogue-lite fashion, each time you’re defeated, you’ll have to start over at the beginning— but every playthrough makes you a little stronger. Level up as you explore the dungeon, uncovering magical artifacts and upgrades to make you say “I HAVE THE POWER!”.
Immersive 1st-Person Fantasy
Wield legendary weapons and powerful magic to smite hordes of enemies in an immersive fantasy dungeon-crawl through a colorful cartoon castle.
Fresh adventures await with each new attempt to storm the keep! Explore a replayable dungeon with treasure, traps, and terrors lurking around every corner.
Coordinated Co-op Chaos!
Brave the dungeon alone or join forces in co-op mode for up to 4 players. Choose your team wisely— each hero brings unique skills to the fight. Victoria the valiant Knight joins forces with Rico the charming Rogue, Maggie the wise Mage, and Hawkins the deadly Hunter. Together, they form the legendary team known as… MythForce. These courageous champions are all that stand between Eldryth and the tyranny of the vampire lord, Deadalus. Will our heroes prevail against the many malevolent minions, tricks, and traps in his ever-changing dungeon? Tune into the adventure to find out!
Visually this remains us of another 80s gem, Dragon's Lair, in that it has the look of an interactive cartoon. Impressive stuff, and MythForce is right around the corner with an Early Access release via Epic Games Store coming on April 21. Head here for the store page to wishlist it.
