Developer GUTS Department and Humble Bundle, Inc. have announced that they will be bringing Aegis Defenders to PAX West later this month.

Aegis Defenders is a Metroidvania-like platformer with a unique tower defense tie-in. Gameplay will have players not only taking control of Bart and Clu and embarking on an action-adventure style journey, but will also task them with defending certain areas from hordes of incoming enemies. For a more detailed look at the game, check out the list of key features below:

  • Uncover a Gorgeous 16-bit World: Featuring 16-bit inspired sprite visuals, every detail in the world of Aegis is painstakingly hand-painted as a love letter to an era of games that includes classics such as Chrono TriggerSuper Metroid, and The Legend of Zelda.
  • Defense Inspired Combat: Make use of Bart’s powerful defensive structures and Clu’s arsenal of firearms and traps in a fast-paced, flexible combat system that emphasizes a strong defense.
  • Dynamic  Character Swapping: Switch between up to four characters at any time to utilize the best passive abilities of inactive characters just as effectively as active characters.
  • Cooperative and Tailored Gameplay: With drop-in/drop-out co-op, invite a friend in at any time to play the entire story campaign cooperatively.

Aegis Defenders will be strutting its stuff at PAX West later this month, located in the consumer area in the Indie Arena Booth, Hall 10.1 A020, as part of the “Presented by Humble Bundle” Showcase. Will any of you be attending PAX West? If so, do you plan on checking this game out? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
