Indie developer Mongoose Rodeo has released a new trailer for Crowsworn to celebrate one year of the successful fundraising project.
Mongoose Rodeo’s upcoming Metroidvania game Crowsworn brings the familiarity of many beloved titles in the genre, especially Team Cherry’s 2017 Hollow Knight. A new trailer to celebrate one year of successful Kickstarter fundraising for Crowsworn has recently surfaced on YouTube and showcases game features and visuals almost taken directly from Hollow Knight. , the main inspiration of the game.
Taking place in the forgotten kingdom of Fearandal, players must unravel a complex interconnected world and decipher a dark soullike story while facing over thirty different bosses. In addition, gamers will have a set of unlockable moves that aid in both combat and movement in the environment. Through the trailer, it can be seen that the game is very similar to the style of Hollow Knight.
However, Crowsworn is considered to bring an important difference in the form of long-range combat. While ranged attacks are possible in Hollow Knight, they are not particularly common and require the use of unique enchantments. In Crowsworn, gamers will have a set of twin pistols that provide new paths for both offense and defense, inspired by FromSoftware’s 2015 PlayStation exclusive Bloodborne.
Mongoose Rodeo also seems to be paying attention to what’s going on in the Bloodborne community as the team is currently creating their own version of the game “Bloodborne Kart”. In early 2022, an indie developer released a great remake of Bloodborne in the style of a PS1 game and it was later announced that a Bloodborne PS1 kart racing title would be the project. their next. Likewise, Crowsworn will receive a companion title called Crowkart, although the game also doesn’t have a definite release date yet.
While it looks interesting, Crowsworn doesn’t have a specific release date yet and the game could be in danger of being overshadowed by the long-awaited Hollow Knight Silksong. Hollow Knight Silksong has appeared in the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase in 2022 and also has no official release date yet.
