Catacomb Kids now in paid alpha

Catacomb Kids
We first posted about Catacomb Kids back in October 2013; and now, nearly a year and a half later, the current alpha build of this side-scrolling action roguelike-like has now been made available through the Humble store and Steam Early Access.

But before we get to the nitty gritty of buying in to this thing, how about we take a look at the latest Catacomb Kids trailer? This makes me think of what Spelunky might be like without digging/bombs, and with a stronger focus on stats and abilities:

The combat mechanics, especially, look rather promising to me. There’s actually another recent trailer showing off the game’s combat, which seems to have developed a surprising amount of depth since we last looked. Frankly, if I weren’t provably terrible at platformers, I would be all over this game.

You can get immediate access to the current build of Catacomb Kids for $15.99–Windows, Mac, or Linux–via the Humble store widget or Steam Early Access.

    By “paid alpha,” I’m assuming it’s people who buy to play an alpha build, rather than the sensible way of a developer paying for people to test his or her alpha build.

    I’ll never get over this.
